    Hi everyone, I'm making a mix and I'm looking for some fast moving dnb tracks in 89-92 bpm range. It could be any subgenre.

    Thanks

    I think maybe you mean 180bpm drum and bass? (are you counting the Snares and coming up with 90bpm? ;) )

    DnB is typically 160-180bpm, occasionally a little faster, anything ~140bpm is breaks, lower than that and you are heading into downbeat/leftfield/hiphop

    If you are playing dnb at 180 bpm you are doing it severely wrong imo

    Use your pitch shifter.

    Ray Keith knows (or at least knew in the late 90's) about the +8

    Hasn't always been that way, nor is it guaranteed to stay this way, but yeah, many DJs have a tendency to play out tunes at 180 give or take.

    Also I think OP is looking for tracks already at 180 + without having to up the pitch...

    This one e.g is a staggering 188 bpm

    I'm guessing it depends on what type of D&B you're playing? I tend to play 170-172!

    agreed mate, i wasn't saying everyone should play their sets that fast, i was merely pointing out the naivety of the comment poster :)

    Just use the pitch fader?...

    And on parties all dj's push up the bpm. Mostly it's around 176-178, but some push it to 180 and more. It just gives a more party and dance feel to the beat.
    Everyone is used to the 170-174 tempo, but when pushed up that tiny bit it makes sure you can't stand still

    what hasn't always been that way? the 160-180 I quoted has been a standard range of tempo's for dnb for as long as I have been listening to it, getting on for 20 years now...

    of course there are some that are a little faster, but exceptions don't make a rule - and the tempo dj's play at is a different topic completly

    Embers breaks are made with sticks at 75 bpm.

    No

    1993-1996 most tunes ranged from 150 to 170, with the top DJs playing said tunes a little faster. It was a few years later that they had been playing them to 180, when most tunes in the club circuit ranged 170-175 (of course some tunes were even faster e.g carlito & addiction, decoder & substance but again "exceptions don't make a rule)

    what do you mean "no"? lol

    as you said "most tunes in the club circuit ranged from 170-175" - so I don't really get what your point is...seems to me you are just trying to argue for the sake of it - and I'm not sure why you are fixating on the 180bpm either?


    and if you want to be picky about numbers, well i said "nearly 20 years", 1993 was 22 years ago, therefore clearly not the date range I was talking about ;) and arguably it was not what we consider to be drum and bass today
