What is Drum & Bass?Drum & Bass is a music culture that can be traced back to the early ’90s. Over the years, the culture introduces many different sub-genres that we will explore in this Masterclass like Hardcore Breaks, Jungle, Jump Up, Techstep, Liquid, Drumstep, and Dancefloor. The style was pioneers in the UK but now is popular all across the world. The fast-paced drums, wobbling basslines, and chopped-up dancehall vocals make this one of the most hyped genres around. This is a deep dive into the production techniques of the styles and its many sub-genres.
