Dubstep has come a long way since the late 90's, where it began as an experimental type of music in the back alleys of Southern London. Its unique mix of syncopated drum and percussion patterns, ethereal sub bass frequencies and low emphasis on vocals has turned it into a popular music genre, with budding dubstep DJs coming out of the woodwork to bring the world a new, exciting rhythm.

The top dubstep artists are becoming extremely influencial in the music industry, bringing the world a new, popular genre of music that - although it might not be for everyone - is pumping out hit after hit. In fact, many of the best dubstep songs, long considered a small niche in the music industry, have started hitting the top 40 music charts, proving that the fan-base is growing very quickly.

Zeds Dead

Nationality: Canadian

Here we have another dubstep duo, this one stemming from Canada. The inspiration for the name 'Zeds Dead' came from Quentin Tarantino's blockbuster film Pulp Fiction, so it isn't as macabre as it sounds. This pair are revolutionary in that they have produced and released scores of songs themselves, releasing them to their fans for free. Dubstep tracks being given away to fans: are we looking at the future of music, right here?



Chris Mercer
Born: January 26, 1985
Nationality: UK

Rusko is an English dubstep artist who was born as Chris Mercer: a decidedly normal name compared to his stage name! This may be one creative guy, but he's intelligent, too. He has actually graduated with a Music Performance degree - take it from me, it's more difficult than it sounds. Although his career only started around ten years ago, Rusko has remixed some of the biggest songs for the most famous musicians in the world, such as Adele's Cold Shoulder and Take Me to the Hospital by The Prodigy.
