Ok so if you’re like me and you have a varied taste in music, i like everything from Jungle to Jazz, Hardcore to harp music. Now is it just me or is there now so many pidgeon holes for music it’s getting stupid? So the question of the hour is ………What makes up the different types of music, ie what makes house music …….house music what makes jungle ……jungle ?
For example i know that Happy hardcore is normally about 150bpm but is played in 4/4 time which makes it bouncy and lively and well……..Happy !
But what about:
Drum ‘n’ Bass
and any others you can think of !
If anyone knows what makes up types of music please post.

Im no expert so dnt critise me too hard, but this is how i would describe each type, dont really know all the bmp’s or timing (4/4/ 3/4 etc)
Jungle – dubby bass lines, very fast random sounding drum patterns (which are wicked), ragga mc’s, dark and dirty sound and breaks
Drum ‘n’ Bass – varied big bass sounds as long as their heavy, fast repetitive drums, funky flow, rude boy mc’s and breaks
House – so many varitys now, but its generaly simple dance music big bass on every other beat, bouncy rhytm, everyone jumpin in time club type music
Techno – the techno i like (london hard stylee’s) is more like dnb fast hard but more synthy an less bassy,
but think it is generally associated with the bannging non stop repetative beat with a simple melody over the top (norfolk techno as i thik of it)
BreakBeat – like dnb but slower and funker, manly about bulidin up to a break like dnb but then breaking into some funky bass line to dance to
Garage – well nowadays its all about the grime, which is really minimalist garage heavy bass, odd melody/synth/samples & silence, as well as a rude boi shoutin about who hes jus jacked up
Hardtek – wicked techno gone madd, fast hard & makes you stomp your nut off – my favortie types of partys at the mo
Trance – U must know, repetative euphroic beats & synths which lul u into a trance like state
Psy-Trance – Trance with more tripped out effects to warp your brain
Rince me up if i know nothing i dont care ill have it up to any music,
an i hate genre’s any way, i call just about any dance music dnb, WELL its got drums & a bass in it init
Theres a web site that trys to describe every genre an sub genre ill find it an post it upJune 28, 2006 at 10:10 am #1080456MeltownParticipantJune 28, 2006 at 11:02 am #1080457sjbr101Participant

There’s a website somewhere that explains a lot of classifications and how they all evolved….June 30, 2006 at 4:59 pm #1080453RajParticipant
IMO they are all artificial divisions which have fractured the dance/rave scene
