oao 
Anyone heard of him.

He's my new favorite musician, after seeing the music video for "Last of the Year"

He's just some dubstep guy that happens to make awesome stuff.

This is badass.

Love it or hate it, this is just awesome, in my opinion.

He sucks. Seriously.
I enjoyed some of the musical aspect, at first, then came the lyrics he added. And then the music got worse.
Instant dislike.

PS: Real music.
EDIT: Your link is broken too Kerr.

Now I'm not a fan of the above linked genre of music, but sometimes its cool to chill out from the metal and rock music.

I don't like skrillex, and I don't like how people go, "OMG SKRILLEX IS DUBSTEP GOD" or what really bothers me is when people think they know dubstep because they listen to skrillex.

I dislike dubstep, yet oddly enough (Or so people tell me)I listen to lots of video game music. Though, most of what I listen to isn't dubstep-esque.

There are few remixes that I enjoy. Some can be good, some just grate on my ears as if they were made of cheese. Take, for instance, the Whitenote remix of 'Shadowlord' from NieR: Gestalt; White note remix. This is found in the game's DLC. Compare it to the original Shadowlord theme: Shadowlord (Original)
The original battle between Neir and the Shadowlord is an emotionally-charged battle, while I honestly have yet to get the DLC for NieR: Gestalt. I dislike the way the remix just takes the original theme and turn it into... I can't even think of a word that describes how terrible it is. This remix is of the official ost, as I've mentioned. Imagine a remix in the hands of one untrained in music, or someone who has another idea.

I'm inclined to agree there; Certain VGM remixes just change the entire mood and point of the track. Others simply re-orchestrate the tune from basic midi-tracks to the sounds of a live metal-band in the case of certain hard-core boss tunes.

There's tons of stuff on OCR that you may not find on Youtube though Quite a bit is worth the time to check out.

Skrillex invented dubstep so he's pretty cool.

Skrillex did not invent dubstep.

I've heard some Daft Punk. Not bad, but not my style. Yes, I am a pretty big fan of techno, but I usually prefer just pure orchestra to techno with lyrics in it. Can't really remember which Daft Punk fits under.

I don't know what makes a good dubstep track, but I did like that video. One thing I like about dubstep is how it can actually make me feel menaced. To me it's very evocative. So I like seeing people's visual interpretations of it. I thought that was a good one.

You could always try fixing your link. Try before you buy, isn't that what they always say?
But yeah.
