Nowadys most neurodnb producers have little to no sub in their kick lol, the attack is too slow on sub frequencies and clogs the mix up considering the bpm.
I think you'll find with DnB and Dubstep etc, the main sub-bass is actually from synths, not the kick. However, in electro-pop and house, tracks like Levels by Avicii, and most of those steady-beat dancy tracks, the main sub is from the kick, but the synth bass is high-passed so the kick is not muddied.
However, in Save The World by Swedish House Mafia, the synth bass is actually heavier in the lower end of the spectrum, and the kick is not as powerful in the low end. It goes with the groove, which is not standard dance beat.
