What is Melodic Dubstep and why would I like it?

If you ever found yourself thinking "traditional" dubstep is too harsh, or without a soul, it's probably because you haven't found melodic dubstep. Melodic dubstep is a subgenre of dubstep that sounds exactly how it sounds, don't mind the pun. Rolling melodies, harmonious vocals and hooks ride on a bassline that usually feautures a pattern not as unpredictable as regular old dubstep. Basically this can be like dubstep with training wheels, or just a different flavor of when you're in the mood for something a little less skull-exploding.

A few great examples of some new melodic dubstep are below:
