One of the first dubstep songs i liked was Mt Eden Dubstep - Sierra Leone but i wouldn't say that from it i started listening more dubstep since i have listened to all sorts of music more ambient almost pop/rock style earlier on in my life (such as Coldplay, Black eyed Peas, Rasmus, Gorillaz, Linkin Park, 30 seconds to mars, Muse, Moby, Guns and Roses etc etc) and all sorts of music from movie soundtracks, from that i started listening gangsta rap but not all, like more mainstream rap such as Slim Thug - Smile, Eminem - Lose Yourself/When i'm Gone etc, some T.I. & Redrama tracks which had more melodic sound than only rhyming with repetitive beat (basically never listen to the words on music but rather the notes even on singing) and so on, but still listening to occasional soft music or whatever, then at some point i started to found EDM house interesting with Deadmau5, David Guetta, Calvin Harris and from which i started to listen more and more electronic music such as, Datsik remixes, Nero's dubstep or Flux Pavilion, Skrillex, (from channels such as UKF) Basically everything and anything random i found even slightly interesting. As i just browsed through my collection over the years it's seriously weird because it contains all sorts of music from the other end to the other. Except metal and such super brutal music (closest to those would be the Skrillex Korn combination album of which i didn't enjoy even that much in the end) Nowadays there are artists like Arkasia, Brig and such names which have really cool style in my opinion on dubstep. Not too brutal but not too soft either. Still listening occasionally to some rather ambient stuff but also i have gotten weirdly interested about epic orchestral (Two Steps From Hell, Hans Zimmer) and classical music (Mozart, Beethoven, Antonin Dvorak) nowadays as i was only listening to movie or video game soundtracks of such music earlier in my life. Years change people even in music.. kind of.. it's funny how i still find almost every music i have listened to slightly interesting but still boring as i have listened to them too much at least those precise tracks i guess..
I would almost say that quite recently i started truly to appreciate dubstep more so maybe even Arkasia would be one of the main artists that got me into DnB, Dubstep style more although i have listened to Spag Heddy a lot quite recently also and at some point even earlier on i did listen Skrillex a lot on dubstep genre but it didn't get me to focus as much to it as i am now, so maybe it's not even directly one track or artist per se which got me into the style but rather the difficulty of producing it also as i really do find it challenging to design such changing heavy basses and sounds and listening to such music also ain't that repetitive as some bounce house tracks in EDM are. It's almost soothing to not have so boring stuff in music as too much repetition is boring and still maintaining certain heavy almost "angry" feel in the music compared to classical or orchestral music that have lot of note modulations and aren't repetitive either but are maybe even too soft. Brostep is cool but so is orchestral and basically all other music.. le me just rambling on about this when i could have put this all maybe into few simple words.. not every explanation can be shortened though as i am kind of pondering the answer while writing or something like that.. weird.. Dubstep is cool though.
