Drum & Bass
"Drum and Bass" (also known as "D&B" or "Jungle") is a genre of electronic music that originated in the United Kingdom in the early 1990s. It is characterized by its fast-paced, syncopated rhythms and heavy basslines. The genre is known for its use of amen break, a drum sample from the song "Amen, Brother" by the 1960s funk and soul group The Winstons, which is a common feature in the genre.
Drum and Bass is characterized by its fast tempo, usually around 160-180 beats per minute, and its use of complex drum patterns and basslines. The genre also often incorporates elements of jungle, which is a subgenre of drum and bass that incorporates elements of hip-hop and reggae, and it often features MCs (rappers) rapping over the beats.
Drum and Bass has evolved throughout the years and has many subgenres such as liquid funk, neurofunk, jump up and many more. The genre is also known for its use of samples and sound effects, as well as its use of technology such as drum machines and synthesizers.
Drum and Bass music has become increasingly popular in recent years, and it is often associated with the underground club and rave scenes. Many electronic musicians also create their music by using digital audio workstations, software synthesizers, and other electronic music production tools.
