During the 60's a track was produced known
as the Amen, which included a 10 second drum
10 second drum sample
changed the modern music industry for ever, it became one of the most noticable and iconic beats in jungle and drum
and bass's history.
Percieved to be the forefather of drum and bass
and its many sub genres
. During the 1990's a new scene was becoming popular; Hardcore, breakcore and rave started to appear regularly in clubs.
However the birth of jungle
comes from the illegal warehouse
parties themselves, where people where into the hyper
melodical piano samples
and the high pithched
voice of which resembles
a hypnotic female cartoon
However in 1992, two genres
broke of from the rave scene (other genres
like breakbeat, techstep, etc were also
into seperate genres
were what we know today as jungle
and happy hardcore.
usually afflicts itself with
ragga, hip-hop and even happy hardcore ( more genres
are included however my resources are limited). The Amen break which is basically the ground or basic beat of jungle
has been over produced
into several different
versions, which funnily
enough all versions have alot
It is said by many that drum
and bass is slowly taking
over most listeners with
its more complex and experimental beats, but still, people say that drum
and bass is dieing.
This is far from true, like rave , jungle
too seperated into different genres
and bass looks like the most dominant one.
