History of Drum N Bass

Drum N Bass, Bristol early 90s:

For a lot of people, it just did what rave did even better.

Floaty, kind of light little rolling music right across to hard edge, rough, jungle.

Slow swing…and fast riddim.

We bring it together (hip-hop, soul, jazz) into breakbeat.

Bristol laid the foundation for what’s the best genre of music in the world.

Since then Roni Size, LTJ Bukem, Goldie, Calibre, DJ Marky, and Commix have evolved it into new forms.
