Aphex Twin, Squarepusher, and Fredrik Thordendal are among the top Musicians who dropped innovative music and also, at the same time, developed a signature sound.

Djent is a sound.  It is widely acknowledged to have come first from Meshuggah, although from 2007, pretty much every “updated” band from the aggresive tendencies, seems to have at least one drop or djent riff.

Djent’s typical uses give rise to a “genre” of djent that is characterized by hi-fi compressed production, polyrhythmic/staccato distorted riffs and ambient clean passages which make liberal use of 9 and other “jazzy” chords. Electronica influences such as glitchy percussion and synthesizers are also incorporated.

Saying this, it is very nice to post Djent-step, a whole new sub-genre, in where Djent sounds gets electronica beats, in this case dubstep. First djent-electronic started with Meshuggah themselves in their EP The true Human Design.

Now, fourteen years later, The Algorithm, from France, drops a masterpiece.

His album Critical Error, surely belongs to the pioneer albums in terms of sounds.
