The Best Dubstep DJs

List Criteria: Only Dubstep artists should be on here, no other genres or styles of EDM

Though it originated in London during the late 1990s, dubstep has become one of the biggest subgenres of dance music. Taking elements of genres like reggae, dub, grime, drum and bass, 2-step garage and breakstep, dubstep became wildly popular at the end of the 2000s and has come to incorporate heavy metal and electro house. Dubstep artists generally build up a song before a huge bass drop that usually sends fans into a frenzy. Good dubstep music has appealed to fans across ages and demographics, all of whom unite behind their favorite dubstep artists and the best dubstep DJs are among the most popular musicians in the world today.

So, who are the best dubstep artists? Any list of dubstep DJs has to include famous names like Skrillex, Bassnectar, Datsik, Knife Party, Zeds Dead, 12th Planet, Flux Pavilion, and female dubstep artists like Katy B. These are some of the biggest names in dubstep music and with good reason. Whenever you tell a fan of dubstep music that you're going to see one of these dubstep artists, then you're likely to get a positive reaction, especially if they play hardcore dubstep songs. The best dubstep music has the rare ability to resonate with millions of dance music fans.

That said, it's up to you to determine what are the best dubstep artists. If you notice that a dubstep DJ is missing from this list feel free to add them.This list answers the questions "who are the best dubstep bands of all time?" and "who is the greatest dubstep musician ever?" If you know enough about the genre, please vote based on the quality of the band's music instead of just voting for the most popular dubstep bands that you might've heard of.
