So yeah, I'm a bit of a DNB/dubstep nut. And the whole "brostep" shebang gets under my skin. What's the point of having Puritanism within a genre that constricts its music to exactly 140bpm and one basic drum pattern?
You might argue that "well, with characteristics that specific, it all sounds the same anyway", but I do my best to appreciate all forms of music and art, and there is something inherently satisfying about dubstep, no matter what form it takes. I have no preference one way or the other, but the purists who insist on the genre being kept the same and with no new material being brought into it whatsoever are the ones who threaten the genre most - music evolves in much the same way as all organisms - through mutation and experimentation. Without that, it's a lost art.

I'd just like to point out that if you shut off your appreciation of dubstep entirely because of a few tunes, then you'll be missing out on one of the most creative exciting genres of dance music to come out in recent years. Check out this reddit thread to get a comprehensive list of artists. You'll see that what people generally consider to be "dubstep" is, well, a bastardization of one of its original currents, and dubstep and its variations are actually mostly great!

Damn, there's some kick ass music in there. I'm blown away by a particular few of them, especially this one:
Probably not quite what you were getting at, but I can't help myself, I love that filthy, scratchy sound. Thanks for that link nonetheless, I love broadening my musical spectrum/horizons/whatever.
