Below is an excerpt from the original article list.

Top 10 Dubstep Remixes of 2009

La Roux – In For The Kill (Skream’s Lets Get Ravey Mix)

This list is in no particular order, other than this track being at the top. If there as one song that gave Dubstep a chance to be played in any club, at any time, for any crowd, it was this remix. The opening synth is so easily recognized that though the tempo was about to slow down, everyone is ready to get blown away by the bass.

Chromeo – Night by Night (Skream Remix)

While I have to give the nod to to his In for The Kill remix as the top remix of the year for this genre, this remix of Chromeo’s “Night by Night” might have to take the crown as far as my own personal favorite remix of his. The haunting synths, the rumbling oscillating bassline hits your soul and the poppy vocoded vocals are unforgettable.

Bat For Lashes – Pearls Dream (Skream’s Pour Another Glass of Champers Remix)

The drums, oh how I love these drums. The musical sophistication with which Skream approaches his remixing is unparalleled and this song is a prime example of that sophistication.

DeadMau5 and Kaskade – I Remember (Caspa Remix)

One of my favorite summer jams, the haunting vocals soft, but deep bassline and signature DeadMau5 synths make for an unbelievable medley of harmony and heavy. Caspa is on this list twice, and while Rusko has been the one to garner the most attention out of the former tag team, this artist, another godfather of the genre is right behind him.

Miike Snow – Black and Blue (Caspa Remix)

Miike Snow has been one of the best remixed band this year and Caspa’s remix of Black and Blue is one of the best re-interpretations of his music out there. The exceptional quality bassline that is smooth yet edgy and hits you where your heart is.

Simian Mobile Disco – Cruel Intentions (Joker Remix)

With one of the best signature synths in electronic music,  Joker has been the breakout artist of 2009. The G-Funkmaster of Dubstep turned everything purple this year. This was easily one of my favorite tacks of the year. There is no synth out there that compares to Jokers.

The Heavy – How You Like Me Now (Joker Remix)

A remix of a band that I saw by chance at Lees Palace a couple of years ago. This re-interpretation of The Heavy brings that same killer sonic synth. Darker than the Cruel Intentions remix, the accapella is blended with his melodic mixing of synths, bass and everything necessary to give his music a full, and complete sound.

Fever Ray – When I Grow Old (Bassnectar Remix)

A musical masterpiece, this song grows and builds into a powerful mix of amazing drums backed with killer bass,  heart wrenching synths and the haunting vocals of Fever Ray. The man himself killed Wrongbar for an eclectic crowd of entranced fans.

Ellie Goulding – Starry Eyed (Jakwob Remix)

The only remix by Jakwob that stood a chance of making this list. I know other people might disagree but this is the only Jakwob track I’ve listened to that really resonates with me. It made the Grindin top 20 songs of 2009, a list that I respect more than Pitchfork itself.

Barletta – Panther (Zeds Dead’s Salacious Sound Remix)

It was between this and their remix of Blue Foundation, but maybe I let a little bit of bias come into play. Zeds Dead is the most personal choice on this list. From hearing their music in my friends living room before it ever made it into the bass bins at Wrongbar to finding out that Skream himself played their music in his Stella Sessions mix, seeing their evolution has been a pleasure. I’m sending out my love to these two guys who have infinite potential. I picked this remix over some of their other work because of its sentimental value. Easily the best song to come out of all of the remix competitions we have done, it managed to topple a very competitive contest by being the most imaginative re-imagination of Barletta’s Panther.

The Marvelettes – Please Mr. Postman (Cragga Dubstep Remix) *honorable mention

This song’s use of the originals vocals alongside its dramatic buildups and drops made it a last minute addition to the list.

White Lies – Death (Chase and Status Remix) *forgot

Somehow I forgot this, I would put this in the top 10 and remove Skream’s remix of Bat for Lashes. This song resonated on my speakers for the majority of the summer. Was the sole reason my roommate began listening to dubstep, and was one of the best remixes of this year, regardless of genre.

——————————————————————————————–

Dubstep is a genre of electronic dance music that has its roots in London’s early 2000s UK garage scene. Musically, dubstep is distinguished by its 2-step rhythm, or use of snare sounds similar to 2-step garage and grime, and an emphasis on bass, often producing “dark” sounds, but just as frequently producing sounds reminiscent of dub reggae or funky US garage.

The earliest dubstep releases date back to 1998, and were usually featured as B-sides of 2-step garage single releases. These tracks were darker, more experimental remixes with less emphasis on vocals, and attempted to incorporate elements of breakbeat and drum and bass into 2-step. In 2001, this and other strains of dark garage music began to be showcased and promoted at London’s night club Plastic People, at the “Forward” night (sometimes stylised as FWD>>), which went on to be considerably influential to the development of dubstep. The term “dubstep” in reference to a genre of music began to be used by around 2002 by labels such as Big Apple, Ammunition, and Tempa, by which time stylistic trends used in creating these remixes started to become more noticeable and distinct from 2-step and grime.

Excerpt:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Dubstep

Dubstep tracks are generally produced at a tempo of around 140 beats per minute and in recent years have developed signature half time rhythms, often heavily shuffled or syncopated, and usually, though not exclusively, including only one snare drum hit per bar, often on the third beat. Such factors make dubstep rhythms markedly different from four-to-the-floor rhythms used in other styles of electronic dance music such as house music, which usually have two snare hits accompanying the second and fourth kick drum. Often, the sense of rhythm in dubstep is propelled more by the bassline than by the percussive content.

The earliest dubstep releases, which date back to 1999, were darker, more experimental, instrumental dub remixes of 2-step garage tracks attempting to incorporate the funky elements of breakbeat, or the dark elements of drum and bass into 2-step, which featured as B-sides of single releases. In 2001, this and other strains of dark garage music began to be showcased and promoted at London’s club night Forward>>, which went on to be considerably influential to the development of dubstep. The term “dubstep” in reference to a genre of music began to be used by around 2002, by which time stylistic trends used in creating these remixes started to become more noticeable and distinct from 2-step and grime.
