Feed Me? Huh they don't even make dubstep. Not a single artist in your top 5 writes dubstep. They write broey electro, that sometimes happens to be at 140BPM. And DJG is already one of the most established American dubstep artists in the scene.

The first show I saw was Skream b2b Benga at Nocturnal Festival in LA, 2009 I believe. They were still playing dubplates at this point, and they absolutely smacked it. The MC wouldn't stop yelling for parts of their set, and nearly ruined it though. Rusko played after them, and his set was pretty decent. This was before any of the ultra bro stuff had come out. He played all classics like Jahova, Hammertime, Cockney Thug, ect. The best tune of his set was a Joker remix of Watch the Sun Rise. That was my first taste of the purple sound.

Benga & Skream. Didn't see what all the fuss was about, bck in 2008(ish) in a damp little club in Bath. Then saw Joy O and that changed everything, heehe.

I saw Skream b2b with Benga one Saturday afternoon in Big Apple when they were about 13.

Before that I saw El-B b2b with Jay Da Flex at Uptown when I was about 13!

I'd been listening to dubstep for about 3 years at that point, but after many
invitations I finally made it to Tuesday Club,Sheffield,early 2009 - Kode 9, Plastician and Joker were on the bill.
I heard a lot of ASE stuff in Jokers set that I didn't previously know about, and went to explore that aspect of the sound further as a result

It's about dropping a track at the wrong speed, and it sounding better than the real thing.

Saw skrillex last year for the first time, and nero the same year. Both were excellent.
I wish everyone could feel what I feel when I listen to Dubstep, the world would be a better place.
