haha American + dubstep.. I don't think it exist.. I'll be honest I don't think any electronical exist in america. The above is Rusko and I just sent it because the actural song is TERRIBLE. Just proves you can make a junk song sound good with a little dubstep.

You must be joking. That must be the most ridiculous statement ever

It was sarcasm, but there really isnt alot of well know people coming out of america. First link i saw on top djs:
1 TIESTO
2 ARMIN VAN BUUREN
3 PAUL VAN DYK
4 ATB
5 CARL COX
6 SASHA
7 FERRY CORSTEN
8 DAVID GUETTA
9 DEEP DISH
10 JOHN DIGWEED

Only 1 of those is american. I live on the east coast and I've tryied hard to find established people in electronical and I have yet to find any. When i head out to the west coast (Vegas and Denver) its alot easier to find good music. But compared to europe america is almost nonexistant in established people. I have friends from england, german, spain and norway and they all tell me about every day how their is something going down in terms of electronical.

And the east coast isnt devoid of music, its just mostly rap music. While in boston every day I was able to go to a rap concert and only once in 3 years could I find something electronic. Same can be said for New York, what little time i spent there

I'm not really into house music which that "top DJ" list is pretty much contrived of but there are plenty of solid DnB producers and DJ's doin it large in America. Atlanta by itself has a bunch of people. As for parties. We have pretty good parties going down on the regular. Bailey from 1xtra was here this week. Next month we have Adam F,Hive,Phantom 45,and DB. All in one show. As for producers from ATL check out Mayhem,Evol Intent, Abel Gein and Tester. All of which are internationally known.
I didnt catch the sarcasm so thats why I replied the way I did.

P.S. Peep out TrillBass for some nasty dubstep biz. Big tingz in the lineup for this crew.

sorry mate but dubstep was invented in Croydon, London.

The sound has branched out into many different interpretations since it's inception (the Bristol scene being a prevalent cerebral trendsetter), and that includes your crass Americanizations unfortunately. (Not that North America doesn't have it's good producers)

Well First off Rusko = london so I dont know how this differs much from croydon london. And as much as that song it was the link I had playing @ the time. Friend sent me the link and i thought it was fairly funny. If i knew how to put videos on here I would. The only reason that one is up is because a mod fixed the code to make it work. Just putting in the embed code doesnt work.

For me obsessive amounts of wobble seperates dubstep from its bigger brother UKG or grime which uses marginal wobbles. And since benga seems to be someone we can agree with that is "dubstep" the following songs by him i consider dubstep:

Benga - 26 Basslines (especially)
Benga - Crunked Up
Benga - Evolution

I could name alot more but those are the ones I found in 2 seconds that you too could easily find given you dont already have them.

yeah. agree with you on the wobble there. basically it all falls under the glorious umbrella of 140-odd (?)bpm bassy 2-step music. The 'function' dubstep serves depends entirely on the producer whether it's skankers or holed-up in your bedroom with an L-skin thinking music. I'm really out of touch with dubstep these days but I know that every time I check in it has spread and evolved. Like there are some producers blurring the lines between step and breakcore right now, it's all gone mental. And re the drum & bass comment further up, d&b heads all seem to be mad on dubstep, it's the same principle. Where I used to live they were getting dubstep DJ's in to play out to the coke crew, it was pretty cool. Also somebody help me with Underwater Dancehall by Pinch before I shoot myself or resort to buying it. frnngh

That is one thing I've def noticed. DnB and dubstep seem to have a simuliar feel to it. I'm acturally fairly new to dubstep myself, maybe 3-4 months deep into it. I had been listening to hardstyle and wanted a different sound. So beyond dubstep what other sub-genres you feeling in electronica?

Headhunterz and Noisecontroller are the 2 i liked in hardstyle. For me its a slower/harder version of gabber with alot more progression.
