The Best Dubstep Artists Of 2019, Ranked

List Rules
Vote up your favorite (current) dubstep artists.

Updated: check out our list of the top 10 dubstep producers of 2020!

Dubstep artists are known for crafting sweet beats with syncopated rhythms and lots (and we mean lots) of bass. While some of the best dubstep artists of 2019 are breakout newcomers like Arty, old-school favorites like Leftfield and Moby are still at the top of their game.

As a subgenre of electronic music, dubstep is said to have originated in the UK sometime in the late ‘90s. But while the first artists started experimented with different sounds as a way to help elevate audiences and create an amazing live show, the hottest new dubstep artists today are able to take the older music formula and turn it into something completely original.

Be sure to vote up your favorite current dubstep artists and be sure to add anyone you think deserves to be on this list.
