    Anthems Breaks Classics Dance Floor Dark Hard Jump Up Jungle Liquid Tech Dubstep​


    These are the main sub-genres of drum and bass am i right?

    Can you give me an example (i.e a tune) from each sub-genre so i know the difference please?

    Breaks i know, Jump up, Jungle, Liquid, Dubstep i all know, so all thats left is: Anthems, Dance, Floor, Dark, Hard, Liquid, Tech.

    Also i would quite like to know what Clownstep sounds like. i have probably heard songs from them all but couldnt name the sub-genre if they were played to me.

    I was hopin that people would just put a title, i.e Dancefloor: then a youtube clip.

    Thought certain dubs were put into certain sub-genres and everyone agreed?

    Just on another note. Dubstep is not a DnB sub-genre and neither is Breaks.

    And never use the term clownstep for jump up in general coz it ainĀ“t that funny..except tune really sounds like circus..

    i dont think he meant to say whats the best type.
    i think he was more after of tryin to understand all the subgenres that people divide drum and bass in.

    Heyyyyyy, I wasn't having a go :) It confuses me all this sub-genre stuff, I just like to say I like drum & bass that's all.
