Brostep: a relatively new sub-genre of music (born out of Dubstep micro-genre) which has no emphasis on soul.

The goal appears to be to produce music as fast as you possibly can, without placing any emphasis on quality.

Unlike Dubstep where sub bass is key, Brostep places more emphasis on ratty high frequency samples and oscillators that arent even low frequency. Toss in a few hip hop vocal samples and you are well on your way to being the worlds next big Brostep producer.
↑↑Brostepper - Man, I cant wait to see Rusko & 6blocc.

↑↑Dubstepper - Man, I cant wait to see Mala & Kode 9.

Hatestep: not real

Amenstep: not real

Thugstep: An exciting fusion of Dubstep and Hip Hop (in particular, Southern Hip Hop), or Dubstep and Grime music...

This trend originally started in 2007 on the east coast with DJ Nappy, and has since been embraced by numerous other DJs across the globe; for example, DJ Cable from the UK, Shawn Livewire, etc...
Slim Thug "Like A Boss" (Nappy Vs. Vex'd Thugstep Mix)

↑↑DJ Cable Vs. Tempa T & Rusko "Mr. Muscle's Hype"

↑↑Shawn Livewire Vs. Benga & MIMS "This Is Why I'm Crunked Up"

Dubstep vocal: not real

Mechastep: not real

Drumstep: the incestuous lovechild of Drum 'n' Bass and Dubstep; taking the half-time swagger and wobble from Dubstep and mixing it with the general tempo and cadence of an Amen Break
Chillstep: A musical genre composed of dubstep tracks with chill undertones. Low bass, slow beats, add a female's voice to the hook and you've got some chill step. Any talented dubstep artist recognizes chillstep and produces chillstep tracks.

Examples: Soldier On (Rusko), Sierra Leone (Mt Eden Dubstep), Coffee Break (Zeds Dead), Dutch Flowers (Rusko Remix), Get The Money (PANTyRAiD), Massive Attack (Paradise Circus), I Remember (Caspa Remix)

Moombahton (and Moombahcore): a popular genre of electro music invented by musician/DJ Dave Nada in the fall of 2010 in Washington, DC. Nada created the neologism "moombahton" to describe the new genre. "Moombah" comes from the title of a popular track that was remixed by DJ Chuckie. Nada slowed the tracked down to 108 bpms, which is close the the bpms of reggaeton. Hence, Nada adopted the "ton" from "reggaeton" and appended it to the track title "Moombah" to generate "moombahton." As of May, 2011, moombahton is growing dramatically in popularity around the globe, spawning mulitple subgenres as it does so.
The tagline line for the moombahton movement is "Dale moombahton," created by Dave Nada and signifying "Give 'em moombahton."

↑↑ Moombahcore is basically Moombahton on steriods, mixing Moombahton with the harshness and filth of Dubstep/Brostep. The genre has been mainly underground throughout its existence and has only recently gained mainstream exposure.
SkiSM - Experts (xKore's Moombahcore Remix)
Noisestorm - Wipeout (Moombahcore)

Trap: Trap music is a music genre that originated in the early 2000s from Southern hip hop in the Southern United States. It is typified by its lyrical content and trademark sound, which incorporates 808 sub-bass kick drums, double-time, triple-time and other faster time division hi-hats, layered synthesizers, and "cinematic" strings.
In 2012, a new movement of electronic music producers and DJs emerged who began incorporating elements of trap music into their works. This helped expand its popularity among electronic music fans. A number of stylistic offshoots of trap developed, which in the latter half of 2012 gained a rise in viral popularity and made a noticeable impact on dance music.

Glitch Hop: uhh...REAL..Glitch is a style of electronic music that emerged in the late 1990s. It has been described as a genre that adheres to an "aesthetic of failure," where the deliberate use of glitch-based audio media, and other sonic artifacts, is a central concern.

this thread is uuhhh... wow this is bad

genres that end with "step" that I know would be

techstep (early neurofunk, Ed Rush, Matrix, etc)
Darkstep (another neurofunk subgenre, DJ Hidden, Skelic, etc)
Dubstep (you know this one)
Brostep (same as above)
Drumstep (that shitty kind of halftime bro-y DnB)

Chillstep (aka liquid dubstep) afaik is just a term youtube kiddies invented for dubstep or even brostep that doesnt sound like 5 alien spaces simultaneously exiting the atmosphere.

rest of that stuff sounds like bs tbh but correct me if i'm wrong lol
