* Varien - [[GenreBuster Genre steamrolling]] artist with one foot in high classical[=/=]opera and BigBand, and the other firmly in {{metalcore}}, EDM, and hard core brostep. Described one of his songs as "It's Finnish-Viking-Epic-Orchestral-Nightwish-Trance-Metal-Movie-Trailer-EDM at 140bpm." [[note]]This is a highly accurate description.[[/note]]

Originally minimalistic, dark, and atmospheric, dubstep evolved over the course of the last decade. Beats became heavier, bass more abrasive, and as the sound gained mainstream popularity, more attention was paid to big drops and "filthy" wobbles (usually preceded by a 30-60 second long intro) than atmosphere. This new form of the style became known (first derogatorily, then as an AppropriatedAppellation) as "brostep"; that is, dubstep that "[[{{Main/Fratbro}} bros]]" could enjoy. Contrast [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ovQS1o6Dxfc "Midnight Request Line" by Skream]], one of dubstep's first crossover hits, with [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K1VLaXoRRdk the Flux Pavilion remix of "Cracks" by Freestylers]], a popular song from about 2010. This division in sound has led to massive amounts of FanDumb and BrokenBase in the dubstep community, and it will most likely [[ThisIsGonnaSuck only get worse]], as dubstep has, as of 2012, appeared even in advertisements for films, television shows and products. Many artists that once associated with the genre are splintering off and working on other forms of electronic music, such as post-dubstep (dubstep meets R&B/soul), bass music and glitch hop.

* PublicMediumIgnorance: Anyone who has a passing knowledge of what dubstep is would immediately think of Music/{{Skrillex}} upon hearing the word, not knowing that a whole scene of active dubstep musicians exists. This knowledge often reaches FanDumb levels as they continue to associate Skrillex with the genre,[[note]]when in fact, Skrillex usually produces house music and {{trance}}, but his dubstep has become so well-known that even his non-dubstep works are easily overlooked.[[/note]] to the point where the rest of the dubstep scene is perecived as irrelevant. This can get particularly grating in some cases, as many music [[FanDumb fans]] now believe that Skrillex is an even better composer than Creator/HansZimmer, Creator/{{Mozart}}, or Music/YoshikiHayashi simply because [[InsaneTrollLogic Skrillex makes dubstep]].

** For artists, however, Borgore was this, although many successful collaborations with various artists (more emblematically with MileyCyrus) and his ownership of a very promising electronic-centered label, Buygore, [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap retroactively gave him lots of respect.]]
