Interesting thread. Haven't followed this style of music for some years. I personally like DNB much better than DubStep, as I find it more interesting to listen to, but probably doesn't have as much bass in most occasions.
I first moved to NYC about 13 years ago and DNB was all the rage. I used to go every weekend with my friend to some cool undergrounds clubs (literally underground in the meat packing district, before the MPD became all chi-chi).
