Dubstep is the leading electronic dance music from the United Kingdom and is fast becoming known as one of the biggest musical influences in the world. Dubstep is created using a new technology known as “Dubstep”, which stands for Digital Modulation synthesizers. These instruments are highly popular among producers all over the world because they give sound that is unprecedented and completely unique.
What makes dubstep such a great electronic music genre? The first reason is because it is constantly evolving, being mixed and re-mastered on a regular basis. This keeps it fresh and increases the popularity of the artists who make it. Another reason is because of how easy it is to get a hold of. There are many well-known UK DJ’s now playing popular Dubstep every day on radio and TV.
Skrillex is one of the most popular Dubstep DJs to come from the United Kingdom. He has played in many famous clubs in the United Kingdom like Fabric, London nightclubs such as Fabric station and Fabricator and his own club, Skrillex Live. He has won many awards for his performances including the Mercury Prize and Best Music Award at the 2021 Brit Awards.

Known for his energetic approach to the studio and his live performances, No Bueno has DJ’d with many well known international DJs such as Mark Farra and Paul Webster. He has also worked with some of the biggest names in the world of electronic dance music including Koven and Cut Chemist.

We realign him with the people that were the core of his electronic dance music career, the producers that made him who he is today.
There is no doubt that there has been a huge amount of growth and evolution in the electronic dance music scene over the past few years. It has become a truly global form of entertainment with huge proportions of young people now turning up at clubs to take part. As this style of music continues to evolve so will the players involved, from the best Dubstep producers to the up and coming artists.
