    Drum and Bass subculture questionnaire
    Age:28
    Occupation: branch manager (Credit Union)
    Sex: male

    1) Do you see your-self as part of a Drum and bass subculture?

    · Yes, in a way... i'm not your typical dnb head, i spin house as well as dnb, i am a bit older than most, and i dont wear "junglist" fashion.

    2) Do you see your-self as belonging to another subculture (e.g. Skater, Punk, Hip-hop etc.)?

    o No

    3) How often on average do you go to music events?

    · two or three times a week including weekly pub/club dnb

    4) How often do you go clubbing specifically to Drum and bass events?

    · dnb pub night once a week, every second week to dnb club, sometimes wedge a house night in there about once a month

    5) Do you read any music or youth culture orientated magazines or websites?

    · Yes
    If yes please specify which ones:
    www.teknoscape.com.au
    www.dogsonacid.com
    www.inthemix.com.au
    ATM Oceanic mag
    check my favourite label sites usually for release dates/artist touring info.

    6) How much do you spend on average per month on:

    omitted some which i find irrelevant :)
    mortgage - $1000
    Going out - $400
    Going out (only Drum and bass events) - $300
    Music (CD's, records etc.) - $200 or lower depending on releases
    Music (only Drum and bass) - $150

    7) Do you see Drum and bass as an underground music scene?

    · Yes , in australia... although it is becoming popular it isnt seen as mainstream to go out to see a dnb dj visiting from o/s.
    mainstream is drinking crown lager and picking up sheilas

    8) With a number of Drum and bass club hits recently entering the top 40 and being played regularly on Radio one, it could be argued that Drum and bass has become more mainstream. Would you support Drum and bass becoming more incorporated into ‘mainstream’ culture?

    · No
    Please specify a reason – mainstream wrecks a dancemusic subgenre over here imo... when speed garage became big it fell on its arse after the masses became bored. same with trance... trance was big enough to sort of live on, still having large events but the crowds are very different to when the scene was underground. it went from ppl genuinely interested in the music to knobheads looking to hoovers to bring on thier e. i am afraid if dnb hits it straps over here the same will happen.

    9) Do you think Drum and bass culture has a specific political message

    o No

    10) Mark out of ten how important you feel each factor is in being part of a Drum and bass subculture.

    Occupation: 3
    Social Class: 3
    Race: 5
    Nationality: 3
    Politics: 6
    Going out to Drum and bass events: 9 - this is where the real scene is... not sitting in front of a pc/magazine
    Knowledge of Drum and bass (labels, producers, DJ's, tunes, events etc): 6 - being able to recognize good music and not making a dick of yourself when a tune is dropped is handy.
    Enjoyment of Drum and bass music: 10 (why else would you be in a subculture that is related to music?)
    Taking drugs: 5 - maybe not taking, but tolerance of gurners is important because they are in the scene and part of it.
    Disliking of ‘mainstream music’: 1 (people who are snobby of mainstream piss me off... just because i have a bit of everythign in my cd collection doesnt mean i'm lame/sold out/old/hairy or ugly
