Day 1! Whats in store here.

Well for years I've been a big fan of Electronic Dance Music, of which Drum and Bass is a part of! Very recently it has become somewhat of a passion of mine and I love to share it with others in my local friend group and was hoping to do the same for the online world. I hope to bring you a taste of some of the best Drum and Bass artists around the world as well as other similar works and remixes. Basically whatever I feel is relevant and exciting and interesting, I'll post it up for everyone to comment and have their opinions on! So first of all..What is Drum and Bass?

Drum and bass (also written as "drum 'n' bass" and commonly abbreviated to D&B or DnB) is a type of electronic dance music which emerged in the mid 1990s. The genre is characterized by fast breakbeats (typically between 160–190 bpm, occasional variation is noted in older compositions), with heavy bass and sub-bass lines. As time went on artists began to incorporate other genre's styles into their music creating their own unique flavour.

One of the most popular examples of DnB artists would be Pendulum, at least in mainstream culture. Though many of their recent releases aren't as DnB flavoured, and incorporate more of an energetic electro rock show vibe, they still got to where they were today through the DnB label. If you'd like to preview some of their music you can find tracks on Youtube, I would suggest looking at tracks such as "Hold your colour", "Propane Nightmares", or "Set me on Fire".

That'll be all for now but please stick around for more as I get more ideas and just throw them up here! Please feel free to comment or follow me and I'll be happy to check out the blogs of your own interests too.

Peace all xx

  1. DnB in my country is a part of really bad culture. It has worked its way down in here. But I hope that it will change. :)
