        Skrillex does nothing for me. Just artificial robot sex sounds to me... sorry. This goes for all dubstep but Skrillex is an easy target because he's been so successful.

          I think the negative shots at Skrillex are basically coming from two different avenues....

          #1: Success; His monstrous success and popularity has made Skrillex the poster boy for Dubstep ( a moniker he never asked for by the way)


          #2: Dubstep purists disliking "Brostep", the popular Americanized take on dubstep.

          Below is a further breakdown taken from the Wikipedia:

          In 2011, dubstep gained significant traction in the US market, by way of a post-dubstep style known as brostep, with the American producer Skrillex becoming something of a poster boy for the scene.

          In September 2011 a Spin Magazine EDM special referred to brostep as a "lurching and aggressive" variant of dubstep that has proven commercially successful in the United States.

          Unlike traditional dubstep production styles, which emphasise sub-bass content, brostep accentuates the middle register and features "robotic fluctuations and metal-esque aggression".

          According to Simon Reynolds, as dubstep gained larger audiences and moved from smaller club-based venues to larger outdoor events, sub-sonic content was gradually replaced by distorted bass riffs that function roughly in the same register as the electric guitar in heavy metal.

          The term brostep has been used by some as a pejorative descriptor for a style of popular Americanised dubstep. So called "dubstep purists" leveled criticism at brostep because of its preoccupation with "hard" and aggressive sounding timbres.

          U.S. and Canadian artists often drew inspiration from British brostep producers who tended to work less with sub-bass and more with mid-range sounds such as Caspa and Rusko, and Vex'd.

          Rusko himself claimed in an interview on BBC Radio 1Xtra that "brostep is sort of my fault, but now I've started to hate it in a way ... It's like someone screaming in your face ... you don't want that."

          According to a BBC review of his 2012 album Songs, the record was a muddled attempt by Rusko to realign his music with a "Jamaican inheritance" and distance it from the "belching, aggressive, resolutely macho" dubstep produced by his imitators.

          Commenting on the success of American producers such as Skrillex, Skream has stated: "I think it hurts a lot of people over here because it's a UK sound, but it's been someone with influences outside the original sound that has made it a lot bigger. The bad side of that is that a lot of people will just say 'dubstep equals Skrillex'. But in all honesty it genuinely doesn't bother me. I like the music he makes."

            I don't hate just Skrillex but all dubstep artists. I don't need to get into a deep analyses of why I don't like these artists, the music they play sounds like shit.

              It's not music. A dial up modem connecting to the internet is closer to music than dubstep ever will be.

                  Of course.

                  Skrillex has his fans but it's just not for me.

                  I like metal but I hate screaming metal. Dubstep, to me, is like screaming metal. It makes my ears bleed.

                      EDM has a lot of different outlets and dubstep isn't an easy one to get into. Generally speaking, I think dubstep is kind of boring and predictable. As a metal fan, I can appreciate dubstep's aggressive approach, but it seems like there aren't many dubstep artists that actually try to take the main idea and go at it from a different angle. Dubstep in small doses is alright, but when every song has the exact same structure and sound, it gets old quickly.

                      A few favorite electronic artists:

                      Deadmau5
                      Feed Me / Spor
                      Wolfgang Gartner
                      Knife Party
                      Zomboy
                      Michael Woods
                      Tiesto

                        I dont hate dubstep but can only handle it in small doses. If Im in that "type" of mood, I would much rather listen to Trance or House. I guess just like any genre, youll have good dubstep and bad dubstep except in this genre, I find it very hard to differenciate between the two. Im a big fan of NIN so the whole Industrial feel certain dubstep has appeals to me. Its alright at a party or at the club mixed in with other songs but I couldnt ever see myself just listening to it for the sake of listening to it.

                          Since I started doing mixing and whatnot, I've discovered that some dubstep goes well with gangster rap. I made a mix of Excision and Ice Cube that I was pretty proud of. The aggression from each feeds well into the other's sound.

                              yeah this is pretty much how I feel too. I don't hate it, I just don't see myself listening to it casually.

                              It was funny, I played some dubstep for my dad about a year ago when I was visiting and his reaction was priceless. It was a mixture of confusion, intrigue, and more confusion.
