I’ve been going on the top ten for a while now, and for the most part it has been a pretty popular way of sharing what has been successful with readers, or just what’s hot on my list at the moment.┬áHopefully this effort to chronicle what I think are the top ten best dubstep songs of 2010 so far goes off as well.

#13 | Fuski and Dodge – Pornstep feat. The Highbury Whores (Original Mix)

Flux Pavilion has had a steady stream of high quality releases on Circus Recs over the last year and a bit, and his production is really looking up. He’s in regular contact with dudes like Doctor P, which can’t hurt ­čÖé

What others are saying: “Grimier than a back-alley abortion.”

#12 | Freestylers – Cracks (Flux Pavilion Remix)

Flux Pavilion has had a steady stream of high quality releases on Circus Recs over the last year and a bit, and his production is really looking up. He’s in regular contact with dudes like Doctor P, which can’t hurt ­čÖé

What others are saying: “Harder than f*ck!ng the grenade on a 26 of whiskey, after she’s railed blow off your dick.”

#11 | Rusko – Da Cali Anthem

Rusko is crossing over in a big way, and though people fault him for capitalizing, I would argue that he’s doing a service to the genre by making it more accessible and fun. This is a straight up great party jam.

What others are saying: “Louder than your wh*re mother with the milkman.”

#10 | Ginz & Baobinga – The Good Stank

Now here is a dude, Ginz that is, that is making some proper shit. I first came across his work on the Joker and Ginz remix of Basement Jaxx’s Raindrops last year, and I was impressed. Though it lacks some of the oomph that Joker brings in the production department, it has a lot going for it musically.

What others are saying: “Stankier than discovering your daughter in a wank film.. and FINISHING.”

#9 | Breakage Ft Donaeyo – Speechless

More subdued, with disparate influences and a chill vibe. Sounds like Seal meets, well.. Breakage.

What others are saying: “Badmon ting.”

#8 |┬áSub Focus – Could This Be Real (Joker Remix)

Nother Joker hit.. dope ass dubby vocals, tremendous production quality, and musically just a great track. To me, this is a real win, in so far as I can listen to this while I bang away at work, or get jacked up on at the club.

What others are saying: “Bigger than an Irishman on 6 beers.”

#7 | Muse – Knights of Cydonia (Nostalgia Dubstep Remix)

This track has a massive.. and I mean MASSIVE buildup. So massive that if you had your fucking wits about you, you would be properly afraid for your life.

What others are saying: “Unexpectedly hard and deep, like f*ck!ng a midget with a huge willy.”

#6 | Major Lazer and La Roux – Bulletproof (Nacey Remix ft. Matt Hemerlein)

It’ll be a sad day when La Roux’s vocals finally get remixed one too many times. Fortunately, that day is not today. This is another fantastic re-envisioning of Bulletproof – perhaps my favourite to date – with a compelling dichotomy between the soothing piano, violin, and La Roux vocal, and the relatively simplistic hip-hop inspired beat.

What others are saying: “Like a sexually confused frat boy alone in a room with Justin Bieber and a fistful of rohypnol.”

#5 | Sleigh Bells – Run The Heart (Bassnectar Remix)

Everything about this track is just fantastic, from the timing down to the incredible and falling bass notes, and the way that they interplay with the guitar noises and the awesome vocal. Bass + female vocal = win.

What others are saying: “Heavier than Godzilla’s bollocks.”

[wpaudio dl=”0″ text=”Sleigh Bells – Run The Heart (Bassnectar Remix)” url=”http://www.salacioussongs.com/files/Sleigh Bells – Run The Heart (Bassnectar Remix).mp3″]

#4 | The Rolling Stones – Gimme Shelter (Zeds Dead Remix)

Some people might brush this one off as kitchy… those people are retarded, and probably don’t read this site. It not only takes balls to remix one of the greatest songs of all time, it’s also incredibly easy to fuck up. This song not only does the original justice, it also rocks everyone’s mind when they hear it for the first time.

What others are saying: “F*ck!ng money.”

#3 | Nero – Innocence (Original Mix)

When I heard Nero’s remix of The Streets’ Blinded By the Lights last year, I thought to myself ‘here is a real innovator’. Well, this track still makes me feel that way. It’s dudes like this who I expect will step up this genre which, I think in many ways is still in its infancy.

What others are saying: “Has daddy issues – starts out innocent and sweet, but ends up a real dirty wh*re..”

#2 | Doctor P – Sweet Shop

A small note, before I’m attacked mercilessly by crowd-sourcing hipster accuracy bots: this was released on a 2 side 10″ in February. This bad boy combines diverse inspiration with tight production, and hip hop sensibilities.

What others are saying: “Louder than Justin Bieber in an elevator with Roman Polanski.”

#1 | The Moody Blues – White Satin (Zeds Dead Remix)

Straight up, the best, most epic dubstep track to come out this year. I will be seriously shocked if anything can top this.

What others are saying: “More epic than The Oddyssey.”
