This Skrillex guy looks kind of like Al Jourgenson's anemic kid brother.
Besides space and bass, there weren't many similarities between the different producers' sounds.
Kode 9 sounded nothing like Skream, who had a distinctly different sound than Vex'd. And there was Burial, who wasn't really dubstep, but just happened to release on Hyperdub around that time.
The fact that Burial was even pegged dubstep is just a testament the feeling back then that dubstep could be anything, that producers could do whatever they wanted, as long as it had that mysterious deep vibe.
