    I am writing a 5000 word essay on Drum and Bass for my studies at university. Has anyone come across any articles or texts relevant to drum and bass that could be used academically? I am thinking of focusing on the relevance of the music in youth culture today but if anyone has any interesting suggestions or ideas for angles with which I can approach the subject then please share :) ta

    There was a really good interview with Shy FX, trigga (with 2 eyes)and a few other peeps from ages ago. might be of some use to you, that is really the main issue they focus on.

    write an essay about dubstep.

    the final sentence could be, "and thats why we listen to drum n bass"

    You need to read All Crews

    Then you will have more than enough information

    All crews is a must be I think you might be lacking in sources if you are writing a 5,000 word essay. Whats the actual title of the essay?

    theres a documentary on youtube called 'talking headz' which briefly goes through meadheadz' history...a label thats obvs helped dnbs longevity, so may want to look into that. Also was meaning to get all crews, how old isi?

    All in all I think the pedestrianization of Norwich City Center will be disastrous for local tradesmen

    ha, gl finding peer reviewed articles on dnb

    IMO, i'd research drugs & music, youth trends, music production or something like that, then just apply it to dnb

    gl anyway !
