For a genre where a large part of its growth and fanbase are directly attributed to how massive the scene is online, it's amazing to think about the lack of quality music videos there are in dubstep or all of EDM, for that matter. Maybe it's a money thing, or maybe the idea of translating a voiceless sound into a narrative visual piece can be daunting. That's not to say that there aren't dope music videos for the dubstep scene out there, but you'd think that more of them would involve either a sick visual component, or take it to the next level and develop some stories that mirror the track. In our quest to find the best in the dubstep music video lot, we tried to satisfy all of those points. You shouldn't be surprised at the names includes, as either the biggest artists Skream , Knife Party , Kill the Noise , Benga are included, or the artists affiliated with big labels Ram Records , Never Say Die , Dub Police that are willing to put forth something different to help push their tracks. You've got everything from trippy, Illuminati-featured pieces to all-out depressed clown short films to young girls using mystical powers to torture their molesters. All Rights Reserved.

There are those who say it's just noise, but of course, anyone who appreciates dubstep knows those critics just don't understand what they're listening to. Like classical music, knowing something about the genre adds to one's appreciation. You'll only be able to recognize the innovation and skill when you know something about the genre, its artists, and how each offers their own take on the sound of dubstep, from remixes of popular songs to original pieces. These are my ten favourite dubstep songs, in no particular order. Of course taste is personal, so if your favorites are different, speak up in the comments section below. This is probably my favourite dubstep song by my favourite dubstep artist. He mixes genres and both house and electro can be heard throughout his songs.

It's safe to say that this decade has been the biggest in the history of dubstep. In honor of the amazing decade of dubstep we've got to enjoy, here are the genre's 20 best tracks of the decade. With a minimalistic introduction putting full emphasis on Rico Act 's now-iconic vocals, hardcore fans of dubstep have found themselves embracing the idea of headbanging so hard their necks are sore. His masterful production skills are on full display as he rips through the track giving listeners little time to breathe. A monumental collaboration that saw Zomboy join forces with one of the most important figures behind the American dubstep movement, 12th Planet , "Dead Presidents" sees the two bass heavyweights at their absolute best. When legends Skream , Benga , and Artwork unveiled their supergroup, Magnetic Man , the dubstep community knew something massive was coming. It laid the foundation for artists for the rest of the decade and beyond. Featuring his trademark high-pitched bass, the way he entwines the vocals with his empowering sound made the song one that immediately turns the crowd into a jumping, chaotic singalong. Throughout this track and many more, Bassnectar would go on to amass one of the largest followings in all of electronic music and sell out shows nearly everywhere.
