Your blog says that you listen to all kinds of music. Have you heard of American Dubstep? Do you like it? If so, who is/are your favorite American Dubstep Artists?(The artists don't have to be American, but the genre would be American Dubstep, because actual Dubstep and American Dubstep or sometimes called Brostep sound very different from each other.)

I have heard that Dubstep originated elsewhere (the UK, I believe?), and differs from what many in the US refer to as “Dubstep” nowadays.

Personally, while I may not listen to much of it, American Dubstep is a genre that I think gets put down a bit too much.  It has a textured sound, and can really evoke a certain feeling harking back to industrialism.  I think it almost makes the beat take on a dimensional quality, and I find that rather fascinating.
