In the following info graphic you are going to see how Drum and Bass found its way to where it is now.
Drum and Bass originated from different styles of music. The influences range from Reggae to Hip- Hop and breakbeat music.
However different genres influenced drum and bass in a different way.
Even doe the different styles existed already decades before, the genre finally erupted, they managed to influence drum and bass quite a bit. But the “final eruption” was in the early nineties, when the so called “Rave Massacre” took place. At that time the Rave- Scene was starting to get noticed by the government and the mainstream media in England.
The ravers held illegal “underground”- raves including lots of drug abuse and the police became aware of it due to a couple of bigger events. The rave scene was in its bloom. But because of the drug abusing behavior the government shut the scene down. So the government managed to push the rave scene away from the big media (except some “mainstream artists”) back into the underground again.
Some time before this, however, in the black projects of London, people started to sample ragga and mix it with elements of rave, breakbeats, and hip hop. The breakbeats were really fast, the basses were deep but slow, and the other element was various ragga samples. Jungle was founded, the last step to drum and bass.
