drum & Bass
Also referred to as D&B or DnB, drum and bass is a genre of electronic music that is characterised by fast break beats that typically range between 160-190 beats per minute. The tracks include heavy bass and sub-bass lines in fusion with samples and synthesisers.
Drum & Bass emerged from the underground rave and jungle party culture of the UK in early 90’s and quickly became a global sensation. The music is generally focused on fast syncopated breakbeat drum patterns and heavy baselines which gives it the particular name. The genre was heavily inspired and sourced from the “jungle techno” and later just “jungle” music and shares the similar characteristics of high tempo, heavy bass lines, sampled breakbeats and samples from older Jamaican music.
Drum and bass often incorporates traits borrowed from other music styles as it uses samples from other tracks and gives it characteristic drum and bass touch. One of the major musical influences of the genre are Jamaican dub and reggae sounds which are often reflected in D&B tracks along with traditional jazz and funk. By 1995, many of the original jungle producers evolved from the original ragga-influenced style to create the genre that is now known as drum and bass.
