That is exactly not what dubstep is about.

Here is a good comparison I found online

Quote:
Brostep: Brostep has exploded in popularity in the past couple years with a focus on wobble bass (ie: wub, wub, wub....), excessive midrange bass, and often an increasing emphasis on dirty and robotic sounding tracks. This is a derogatory name used by some because they think brostep has tainted or even killed the dubstep genre. Many think it's no longer about the culture and musical experience, but outdoing other producers with dirty tracks.
Quote:
Dubstep: Dubstep evolved out of Jamaican dub and UK 2-step garage, characterized by sub-bass (below 90Hz) and the 2-step kick-kick-snare pattern in each successive measure. Early producers predominantly created the music to be played on huge sound systems because the sub-bass was meant to be experienced and not just listened to. It was essentially as much a culture as it was music.
Rusko had this to say (surprisingly...) I also find the background track very ironic...heh

Rusko's thoughts on Brostep - YouTube


Good god why do I care so much...
