Of course, these are all electronic genres, any fans on the soundground?

Dubstep has been around for awhile now, and has come into the mainstream. Breakage's album from last year is probably my favourite from the last few years. Two tracks from his album Foundation:

Aggrotech (aka hellektro, aka harsh ebm) has been around for about as long as dubstep, the fan-based are moody goths, but the music is actually pretty good, though negative at times. It's like a mix of hardstyle techno, industrial, and old school EBM-industrial. If you like techno or industrial, you might want to look into this genre. Example:

Future garage came out of dubstep, as a reaction to the wobble heavy use of some djs. It is pretty atmospheric. Two songs:

I just got into DubStep within the last 3 - 4 months. Got hooked on BassNectar, which led to Skrillex, Excision, Datsik, Dubba Jonny etc. (I am into the really grimy, wobbly dubstep.)

Oh, and "First of the Year" by Skrillex may be the coolest video I have ever seen.

If anyone knows of specific artists that are similar please let me know.
