    I have to argue that this is not dubsteb. dubstep sucks and i enjoyed this, that is how i know it is not dubstep. Also, she`s hot.

    The addition of an extra ingredient to crap doesn`t change the crap itself.

    I want to have her babies.

    And btw, this isn`t dubstep. I mean, it is...but all dubstep is is techno/trance with a new name that a new generation thinks they came up with.

    This stuff isn`t new-- classical crossover has existed for a while! The Trans Siberian Orchestra, Vanessa Mae, Bond, and The Rock Tenor come to mind... :)

    32,00 vs 500 in the likes/dislikes. People love it.

    And i agree -- Dubstep is one giant stew of Trance/Techno/Rave tyoe music mixed into one. I don`t really care what it`s labeled as really because I love it anyways. Haters that try to define what "real" music is make me laugh. They`ll never understand what it`s like to create something that people can connect with and love.

    I don`t get why dupstep is such a big thing. It`s just one of a million types of electronica, to me it doesn`t stand out.

    I`m not excited about people trying to dance and play an instrument. This audio was mixed to downplay the dub part a bit and highlight the violin, which is a good move. But the dancing while playing just looks silly. Like maybe they need to go pee or something but have to finish the song first.

    It`s now the cool thing to hate dubstep. I don`t look up country music videos on YouTube and let everyone know how much I hate it. That`s just douchey.

    I enjoyed this and much of dubstep/electronica/techno. Anything that sends chills down my spine or evokes powerful emotion is good music.

    Sorry, I just had to make an account to comment. Guys...This is not new; like at all. Classical instruments have been used dubstep, techno, synthpop and all electronica variations for a long, long time. Heck, even Tiesto has used violinist ALOT in his stuff. If you guys like this then I seriously suggest you check out E.S. Posthumus, E Nomine or BOND. Song is still good though; but to act like it`s the first of it`s kind is laughable.

    Sounds like Ed Alleyne-Johnson, but without the originality, complexity or talent. No problem though, she makes up for it with the skills of an introductory ballet class.

    alright, just came back from a 2 hour walk with the k9. this song was on repeat. and i have to say. i love it. it has the right balance between acoustic and electronic, the melody and intonation are warm, it`s a wel done fusion.

    I liked it but... this isn`t a violin doing dubstep. This is a violin making regular violin melody-type music overlayed over, or incorporated into, dubstep.
