Drum and Bass is back, back? Like for real this time?

Recommended Posts

Ive been spinning Dnb for 19 years and i have never went on to beatport (since the creation of beatport lol) and ran down the chart to see Hospital, Critical, and Shogun Records crowding the top of the chart! Its the most exciting thing to see... Such good shit is being made with now in multiple subgenres deep, jumpup, dark, nuero...)  Please let it be a revival... and this fuckng Dieselboy mix... what is happening! Did somebody wake the Dnb Dragon!

Bass music itself is coming back.

btw drum'n'bass is one of the only genres of dance music that never really went away, it was always there

 

i myself started more than 10 years ago and dnb has been a steady supporter for all these years with quality tunes each month

Lol what are you talking about? They are on the chart because you are on the Drum & Bass section which has it's own chart. Those labels have always dominated their respective chart

DnB has always had a consistent and fairly strong following especially in the UK! Although I have noticed hearing it pop up in more places than I'd previously noticed in the past year or so.

DnB has always been pretty big in NZ too. We just don't have many consistent gigs going around locally. I've only been listening to DnB since 2014, so I think I'm a bit behind.

Where are you from mate? DnB is alive and well in the UK, played on public radio since forever. The states dont seem to get it, no DnB artists tour US/americas (except Dieselboy who has never stopped and always has had a great fanbase). Europe/Australasia love it as a dance genre. If youre talking about how its developed, then yes, id say its going down every road of creativity it can (tech, classic, jungle, neuro, pop, etc...) 

So I think youre talking about just Dieselboy, who for a while turned to dubstep to get the crowd to his shows, but has been around forever and is now making a big comeback with just DnB.

As for US dnb artists, Kill the Noise often uses/makes DnB, since he used to be Ewun when he started. Bro Safari works with UFO! to make dnb pace tracks but seperated originally to jump on the moombahton bandwagon. As for the group formallly known as Evol Intent, thats just Computer Club now, and he kinda sucks at it alone, but maybe theyll make a reunion soon. Mark Instinct is still around. A lot of artists to take trap too far (um..) are just moving over to halftime dnb/experimental (another bandwagon [that i like]) because its close enough to dubstep and trap

LOL Thanks for clarifying about the Drum and bass chart being a drum and bass chart...  and i disagree ... those labels and artists have not been on the top of beatports charts.... Juno, yes... beatport no.  But what do i know. Ive just been spinning Dnb for 20 years.

What do you know? Not very much considering you even admitted you have never used Beatport since it was created. So how would you know anything about the Drum & Bass chart or Beatport. No, those labels have not been top of the actual Beatport chart that covers everything that is sold by Beatport but that is not even the chart you are looking at, those labels HAVE dominated their respective chart for near the last decade. Ok, Andy C, I have been spinning DnB for the last 10 years and I've played across Europe/UK while holding residencies and won numerous DJ competitions, so put your epeen away, no one cares and admit when you are wrong.
