    Few years ago when dubstep "appeared" (recent times) it had some terrific pieces. Heavy, harsh, mechanical, beautiful.
    I haven't heard dubstep in a while so I decided to check random dubstep on youtube.
    WTF has happened to dubstep?
    ALL I have heard so far are one or more of the following, mind you I use my own terms:
    1) almost like light techno
    2) pop versions of dubsteps
    3) "melodic lullabies "
    4) singing, lots of singing.

    WTF! No one makes any proper dubstep any more?

    I don't want singing, soft melodies, techno music.

    Can you provide an example of something that you'd considered to be appropriate.

    If I could, I would, but I can't, so I won't.

    Dubstep, in a nutshell. ;)

    Personally I think that dubstep, pure dubstep was/is too harsh for some people, and some artists have either tried to change it to make it more appealing to the masses, or new dubstrep artists come in with their own idea of what dubstep should sound like, again to make it more appealing to the masses.

    For myself it can be a bit too harsh, but in the mass that is dubstep everyone, even me, can find something they like. Bangarang by Skrillex is a fav of mine (as well as a handful of others on the same album).

    I know what you mean, the same thing has happened to trance, newer trance is just not the same. But then again electronic music is very progressive and is always changing.

    I prefer drum and bass to dubstep myself anyway.

    If you really dig you can still find some good dubstep and trance and that too.

    This is what it's like to crank up the volume on older Dubstep tracks.

    Not bad but still not good enough.
    I wish I could explain myself better. I don't want music in my dubstep lol.

    So basically mostly sub 150hz frequency test tones that abruptly change which may or may not produce higher frequencies being included between or during said frequency test tones. Something that would be closer to that of free jazz.... but with the LFE channel mostly.

    I don't care if something is classic. I care if I like it, that's all that matters. Life is too short.

    That's a good career choice. If people are known for one thing is paying for their music.
