Drum n Bass Music Description

**Drum and Bass** (also written as **Drum&Bass** or **drum'n'bass** and commonly abbreviated as **D&B**, **DnB**, or **D'n'B**) is a genre of electronic music that emerged in the early 1990s in UK. It is usually characterized by fast breakbeats (165-180 beats per minute) and strong bass-lines. The genre was heavily influenced by Jazz, Dub, Funk and Hip-Hop and adopted their techniques, such as syncopation from Jazz and sampling from Hip-Hop. Due to the range of influences it has all sorts of flavors, the sound of D&B is extremely varied. Drum and Bass is often confused with Jungle from which it grew out but the main feature that distinguishes them is lack of Reggae influence over D&B.
