The top dubstep DJs have managed to conquer this unique genre of electronic dance music. Many started out in clubs in England, where dubstep first began to surface over a decade ago. In the years since, the popularity of dubstep bands and artists has grown tremendously.

Today, dubstep is one of the most popular music genres around. New, brilliant dubstep artists emerge seemingly every day. Some are included among the best DJs in the world, including Skrillex and Nero (among others). Their dubstep and techno or jumpstyle songs are instantly recognizable and certainly worth checking out.
