Oh boy.

Drum 'n' Bass. It's just a lot more creative, a lot more subsidiary genres have been established for it (such as neurofunk, liquid funk, jump-up, ragga jungle) and I just find the production values to be a lot more polished.

Don't get me wrong, dubstep CAN be creative sometimes, but everything's so cookie cutter and wobble basses have just gotten to the point where they're humorously ridiculous. There's a reason why there are a bunch of parody dubstep remixes on youtube.

(by the way, Skrillex' Kill Everybody is Electro/Fidget House).

This is what I was thinking. In fact very little music by Skrillex can be accurately defined as dubstep, although it does fall within a genre which appeals to the same crowd.

Dubstep easily. It's so much easier for me to get down to.

I'd have to say even though I love all the awesome tunes in the dubstep region, I prefer Drum 'n' Bass because it seems more relaxed but also exciting at the same time. I just love crazy ass beats.

Drum n' bass all the way. If we're gonna get specific, I'd say liquid funk is probably the best sub-genre. Producers are staying incredible, whether it's bigger producers like the guys over at Hospital records, or the less well-known artists like Memro. Liquid funk is pretty unique in the way that you want to get up and dance to it, yet it can be relaxing in a way.

Personally, I don't really like the path dubstep has gone down. I like the stuff that's more relaxed, but still has a darker feel to it; that's what real dubstep is to me, not massive wobbling basslines that actually just sound like noise and not much else. Don't get me wrong, there are still some good mainstream tracks that get released every now and then, but nowadays I tend to like the vocals and not much else. I like the vocals in Sunlight by Modestep, but not much else about it to be honest.

Older Skream tracks, like Colourful and Midnight Request Line, are really good examples of what I like in dubstep. Plastician's stuff too. More recently, I've found Blackmill and he's amazing as well.

also your examples of dubstep are terrible lol

Definitely Drum and Bass. It just has so much more of a hardcore feel.

Drum 'n' Bass for me, not only because of the flow but also because of the generally upbeat nature.

DnB makes great party music, but I prefer dubstep.
