    I just thought about this question because I realized that I don't like most recent Jump Up tracks.

    Back in the days there were like really punchy drums, with a lot of power and a bassline that would blow your mind. But at the same time they still had a melody or something very catchy about every tune. For example these tracks. (Gotta say though that Modified Motion & Faction stick to their style and keep it up)




    Most recent Jump Up tunes are just wack, floppy drums with clap sounds, almost no hi hats and some random fx that can not really be called a bassline, for example these ones:

    It's the same as any other sub genre man, it just happens to be to the fall guy of dnb

    Maybe, but where is the power in this? Thats basically just a sub with a bit of resonance and a wack clap snare.

    Well, I am 16 and I love Jump Up (listened to liquid before a friend of mine showed me an old modified motion track) but I only love the stuff that came out until like 2012, the only exception for me personally being Original Sin and Modified Motion, after that something must have gone wrong, but I think you can't say that only teens listen to it! :D

    I can pretty much guarantee the oldest people in the jump up arena's will be the performers!

    lol at nu elementz being "back in the days", wow I feel old

    anyway, you just singled out a couple of tracks you think sound weak and then said all new jump up is like that. It isn't.

    I call that "back in the days" because these are my personal "back in the days". ;)
    I've subscribed to so many Jump Up channels on YouTube and all they post is this weird new stuff.

    To the original question, no. But it depends where you look.
    The heads that are still pushing jump-up forwards are still doing it well..... Hazard, Annix ect

    If you're refusing to respect anyone younger then you'll not come very far at life.

    Gotta say that I maybe put everything in the same box too much but I still think that it is much harder to find good Jump Up tunes these days.

    Most dnb heads around here are in denial. Apparently theres nothing wrong with the scene and everythings fine. I dissagree strongly.Its funny how you are 16 yet you are more aware than most around here. Jump up was good for abit now its a disscrase even puttin it in the same catagry of drum & bass.

    Some possatives are that a couple of producers are goin back to the old jump up sound more mellody no annoying new sounds which is good news. Its them tacky drops I cant stand you know the ones

    So you wan't to tell me it is immature not to listen to liquid and deep drum and bass? Sorry, but I don't know what is wrong with you.
    There is no "better" or "worse" drum and bass. Sure, Jump Up is not the most complex sub-genre but it has still generated an awful lot of great tracks that are banging and still have a nice melody. Expand your horizon, your taste is not the ultimate thing for everyone.
