Been thinking over the last few weeks about how dnb has changed. Jump-Up is by far the most popular sub-genre in dnb right now. Theres DJs croping up all over the place claiming to be "Jump-Up DJs". Why is this?? Suppose im from the generation of dnb heads that play dnb in general..... all styles.... and play stuff that i like, no matter what someone wants to catagorise it as..... this used to what defined the djs apart from each other in the good old days. I used to like listening to certain djs because i liked their choice of tunes. You used to hardly ever hear the same track more than once maybe twice at a rave. Today it just seems most djs just play Jump-Up.....y?? Why would you want to limit yourself to one style of dnb?? These days its pretty common to hear the same track 3,4 even 5 times in one night. ie.... Machete. My point is...... why are people playing Jump-Up so much?? and is this new wave of Jumps slowly ruining dnb? because producers are feeling forced to produce the same old typical big bass, hard drums jump-up stuff? I mean check out Friction.... back in the day you would never have heard him put out a track like "3rd Degree Gurns". Im not saying i dont like jump-up..... i love it..... but i cant help thinking that maybe its time the jump-up heads started pushing the scene and trying something new??? hahaha!! proper went off on one there!! hahahahah!!
