From its emergence in the English hardcore rave scene of 1991-2, the music that came to be known as Drum ’n’ Bass evolved at such a pace that by the late 1990s it stood as one of the most energetic and influential of the post-house music. Characterized by ferociously complex digitized drum patterns and synthetically treated booming bass lines, it bore the traces of UK hip hop, combined with the electronic assault-tactics of European and US techno. Drum and bass had a primary influence on dubstep and a lot of other genres. Since the mid 1990’s Drum & Bass has been around, first mostly underground and more recently in the public mainstream.
