Drum & bass is a genre that gets a lot of flak. It’s been called everything from soulless to overrated, but it’s also one of the most influential electronic music genres on the planet. I’ve noticed that people who have never tried drum & bass don’t really get it, and even some fans don’t understand what makes this genre so powerful.

To get the full appreciation for drum and bass, you must try it in a dark.

Drum and bass is a genre that is best experienced live. It’s also one of those genres where you need to be surrounded by others who know what they’re doing to fully understand it; if you want to know about drum and bass, ask someone who knows what they’re talking about! To really get into this music, though, I recommend going out dancing at least once or twice per week (preferably on weekends). If possible, find yourself an event where there are more than 100 people dancing together it’ll make all the difference when trying out new styles like liquid funk or sub-low-tech step & neurofunk – trust me on this one.

Drum & bass is a genre designed to be listened to at loud volumes.

The music was created in the UK during the 1990s, and its creators were adamant that it should be played at high volumes. They even used their own terminology for this: “loudness” or “underground sound system culture.” They wanted people to experience drum & bass as if it were being played in a dark room with 100 other people and ideally all of them were dancing toward one another, rather than just standing around enjoying themselves individually.

Drum & bass is not just dubstep and trap elements.

If you haven’t listened to drum & bass much, it’s easy to think of it as just dubstep and trap elements. But there are so many other things going on! Drum & bass is full of jazz riffs, hip hop loops and even classical melodies. If you listen closely enough, you’ll hear them all over the place. You might not be able to pick out every single one on your first listen but trust me: they’re there!

It’s not just about the beats; it’s about the combination of elements that make up a good song.

In a lot of ways, drum and bass is the most important part of the song. It’s not just about the beats; it’s about combination of elements that make up a good song. If you listen to any drum and bass artist, you’ll notice that their lyrics are usually very simple and sometimes non-existent. But this isn’t because they don’t care about what they’re saying or singing; it’s because they want to focus on their instrumentation: drums and basslines!

Many popular songs are made for both dancing and listening to.

The problem with this idea is that it ignores the fact that there are different kinds of dance music. Some genres are more focused on the beat than others; some genres have more complex rhythms; some genres have vocals that play an important role in their sound (and therefore can’t be danced to). A lot of people don’t realize this because they’ve only heard one type of dance music their whole lives: house music. House has been hugely popular since its inception in Chicago in the ’80s, and today it remains one of the most influential styles in modern pop culture. But even though you’ll hear house beats everywhere from your local bar’s DJ set list to Beyonce’s latest album (she sampled Daft Punk!), that doesn’t mean every song has those same four-on-the-floor kicks drumming away under everything else like clockwork and if you’re not paying attention when listening closely enough during a night out at your favourite club or festival then chances are good that someone else will be there first!


House music is an incredibly popular style of dance music that has found its way into almost every type of music. This is due in large part to the fact that house beats are incredibly easy to dance to, and most clubs have a dedicated DJ always playing them. House music can often be heard on mainstream radio stations, especially if they’re trying to reach out to younger audiences.
