    Default What is drum and bass

    What Is Drum N'Bass?
    Drum 'n' bass (also referred to as jungle) evolved from the breakbeat and hardcore culture in the early '90s. Based out of the U.K., its signature style came from artists mixing sped-up hip-hop breakbeats with Jamaican dub and techno influences. Ragamuffin pioneer DJ General Levy incorporated fibrillating drum patterns and rumbling basslines with ragga vocals (at a tempo of 160-180bpm), spawning an array of subgenres such as tech-step and jump-up. Around the mid '90s, drum 'n' bass innovators Goldie, Grooverider, and 4 Hero took the then-current art of jungle and altered the basic rhythmic framework and breakbeat style that defined the sound of drum 'n' bass innovator Aphrodite, as well as the brittle, industrial programming of tech-step artist Ed Rush and Optical.

    Default What is tech step

    What Is Tech Step?
    In 1995, tech-step further fused techno and jungle. The "step" was darker and more aggressive, with sinister bass growls over a 4/4 techno-influenced pattern. The drums and oppressive atmospheres introduced a more menacing minimalism to drum 'n' bass, without forsaking jump-up's body-moving imperative. DJ Trace (DISC4) along with Ed Rush & Optical (Virus Recordings) created the subgenre and sucked out nearly all of jungle's life-affirming funk juices, leaving a gaunt, bloodshot zombie encased in rumbling metal. With coconspirators Nico Sykes (No U-Turn) and DJ Trace playing a huge role on the impact of tech-step in the mid-'90s, the dark, techno-influenced style, with beats as fast at 180bpm, was the new sound and style of post-industrial dystopia.

    Default What is jump up

    What Is Jump-Up?
    The Jamaican-influenced style known as jump-up is a high-energy form of jungle music that evolved from the breakbeat and hardcore culture in the U.K. during the early '90s. It is characterized by fast-paced percussion and complex drum rhythms as well as hip-hop and MC Rastafarian vocal samples from reggae, dub, and R&B influences. The "Amen break," a considerably fast drum loop taken from the '60s funk/soul outfit the Winston's, also is a distinctive characteristic of the style that is widely used today in all forms of drum 'n' bass production. Labels such as DJ Hype's True Playaz and Aphrodite and Micky Finn's Moving Shadow all have emerged as consistent outlets for this innovative style, which is often used interchangeably to describe jungle.
