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

Yeah i mean 180 bpm... i usually say 90 since it rolls off the tongue better.

nonsense. dnb is 160-180bpm, always has been, always will be.
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

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
