Drum Step- Who should I check out?
Heard some 'drum-step' tracks played of Grooveriders show a couple of week back. Liked the sound. Who are the producers I should check. Got Dub-Foundation sorted. Any recommendations would be appreciated

Drum step?

Do tell! I've never heard of it. Some sort of dnb/dubstep hybrid or sommat?

check out Hazard, original sin, heist, there's heaps of people doing it now,



Check Hazard - Wicked SO , Hazard - 2 for 1 ,

Heist - We need killers



btw - it is the same BPM as DNB, just half the amount of snares gives it a way different feel

check hazard 2 for 1, the first drop is drum-step, the second is dnb, and its the same tune (hence the name 2 for 1 ) !

Yeah, but tbh, i don't mind some of the new stuff original sin is coming out with, you should check it, its less wobbly/jump up, and more of his melodic intro style stuff.

as for hazard, you got to give the man enuf respect, he makes bangers whether u like it or not, i still drop busted all the time haha

i do not see anything different about this track? am i missing something here?

also, original sin is half of g-dub yes?

why is it that he can put out sick remixes such as the rufige kru - monkey boy one he did in 08 and then continue to make so much gash? baffling.

"drum"step is all about emphasizing the drums, the drums change in 2 for 1,

and yeah original sin is coming good again, he makes such beautiful intros and then ruins them with a gash drop,


im diggin some of his new stuff tho, LP is worth a bag if you play at partys IMO anyway

Really? Funny that, theoretically DnB has always been about that. Sadly, the reality is far from that ideal more often than not.

Oh, and the pattern and drum sounds in the first section sound identical to loads of other drum and bass tunes. I fail to see how this 'drum-step' is genuinely anything new.

And the b-lines are straight-up derivative wobble.

Again, funny that. Seems to ring a bell...... oh yeah, thats right...there was this genre....um... 'drum and bass' I think it was called (yeah, crazy, I know) - the drums used to change in that genre, too.

Sometimes, even more than twice. Sometimes.

'Impress' everyone?



You post an example of a supposedly 'new' style in DnB, I and (and others) proceed to suggest it is nothing new really and I site several valid reasons why I think so. It's called a 'difference of opinion'.

You respond with simple name-calling. Which probably says more about your mentality than anything else.



Please, carry on with your love-in with Hazard. I'll dim the lights and leave the room, shall I?

I'm really over genrelizers. Why do you all think every single choon has to have a category. If I went to see DJ Bob and he plays Bing Step, set up a F@#ckin bed for me in the corner. Diversity is what you live for. Not a big square plank of grey.

Drumstep- it's like jump-up with a dubstep wobble replacing the hiphop bassline....

-Two-step
-Future-step
-Dark-step
-Bro-step
-Jump up
-Liquid Funk

All forms of Drum n Bass, which from jungle, which came from dancehall and dub.

AFAIK What you are referring to as drumstep is more of a "steppers" beat.( which has been around very strongly since Jungle)
and what you are calling a drum n bass beat is actually a 2-step beat ( not the uk garage style tho) and yes it heralded the sound of Drum n Bass in the mid 90s.
Drumstep is actually what I would call "halfstep" which has been around since the Jungle days (albeit rarely) but made more popular by ppl like Amit and is becoming very popular with the combined influences of Amit and Dubstep. (google it)

I think its ok to give beat styles names - then we know what we are talking about.
Drumstep has a distinct sound and is becoming a very strong subgenre - it deserves a name.

It enables ppl to find and enjoy specific styles of music. If we just called it all Drum n Bass - how would a Current Value/dark n hard dnb fan feel when he went to a "Drum n Bass" night and found they were only playing Hospital Records style stuff? and visa versa

I'd kill myself, that's how

I've seen DJ Hidden refer to Drumstep as halfstep before too.
