    Anyone listen to the genre? I know it's part of the edm category and may not fit in with this guitar based forum, but I feel like out of all the sub genres in edm, DNB captures rock and roll vibe pretty well.

    I just recently started listen to it myself. Discovered this band Pendulum.

    Yeah, I was super into it ages ago, in the Roni Size / Reprezent era. One thing about that genre is it sounds WAY better on vinyl than all digital. It really gives warmth and depth to the sound. Otherwise it tends to sound empty and way too spartan.

    I’ll always have a soft spot in my heart for 90s DnB and 90s jungle/breakbeat music. It all had such a unique, immediately recognizable sound, often times with a nicely produced mix between the hardcore rhythms and the ambient textures.

    With that said, 90s DnB was way different than the DnB of today that has been integrated into the mainstream EDM fest scene. (You can easily hear how the jungle/breakbeat sound evolved into DnB since it was a predecessor to DnB.)

    I LOVE DnB. Both the EDM type DnB and the more oldschool variant.
    I am dreaming for a long time to combine Mathcore and DnB, hope I will eventually get it done in the future. :D

    I love DnB! Listened more to it before but I always come back to it. First band I found was Black Sun Empire.
    Whenever I feel like listening to something loud and get the subwoofer working its Dnb ! :)





    some chill Nu Tone!

    Can really recommend Noisa, especially if you're into sound design and super produced stuff and also The Upbeats and Mefjus. Though I think The Sirens is Mefjus' best song. The rest doesn't really come close IMO.

    It might be closer to IDM, but Squarepusher's hard normal daddy is a 11/10 album.

    Also live videos of Jojo Mayer's Nerve are killer for a live band's take on DnB

    I was a big fan of Jingle/DNB in high school. AK1200, Dieselboy, Drumsound etc. I used to go watch Zacharia and Nitsuj from the Harvard Street Mafia spin records in the late 90’s almost every weekend.

    I don’t listen to it much at all anymore, but I do like some Hallucinator when I’m in the mood.

    If you like Pendulum you'll love this album by Voicians. It's basically a love letter to that style of DnB.

    AK1200 is a blast from the past. I also liked DJ Dara back in the day for some pretty raw jungle style dnb. LTJ Bukem and MC Conrad were a decent crossover to liquid dnb for me now.

    Oh hell yeah, I forgot about Dara. I had “Full Circle” in my 6 disc changer for a solid 4-5 years :lol:

    Dang these are all good. Thanks y'all.

    So forgive my ignorance but is this like an old niche genre of music now? I've been doing some research on it, and it seems to be super popping in the UK and countries near that region but not really popular anywhere else.

    really diggin, noisia and Black sun empire!

    Yeah, at least in Seattle, it was a bit underground within the underground scene. At that time the kids that went to parties would wear rainbow clothes, tons of home made bead bracelets/necklaces and put Vick’s Vaporub in dust masks :lol: The DNB crowd were typically rocking Kangol visors and plain track zip ups or hoodies and jeans. A lot of shows were by invite and they’d spin (actual!) records until the sun came up.

    I got old somewhere along the way and stopped going to those things a long time ago. It was a great scene for quite a few years before it really blew up in the mid 2000’s. Then dubstep came along but I had already made my exit by that point. A few friends that used to mix DNB started onto different genres and switched to digital gear, so I assume it’s dead in Seattle too; at least in its original form.

    I've caught onto DnB in recent years, I especially like the Liquid Funk subgenre.

    Not particularly DnB but I listen to a lot of different genres.
    Here is another one that really does a good crossover. DnB with occasional metal remixes. So mathcore with DnB isn't too farfetched.

    Aye, back in the day. Lost interest in the early 2000s. Still stick on Timeless every now and then because it is as it says.

    So, few months ago I posted about my curiosity of DnB. A lot of you guys helped sparked some ideas in my head.

    I ended up making two songs. Quite a different experience from the prog rock music I used to make, but I was getting bored and wanted to do something different for a change.





    Anyway, I had a blast making these. I Hope yall dig. Cheers!
