dont worry about scales and modes. most dnb artists are uneducated teenagers in their bedroom with a cracked copy of reason, so any old collection of notes are acceptable

get a book, take a class, youtube, search google, ask a person who plays a real instrument like piano/guitar/clarinet etc, trial & error (fuck around on a keyboard), find a riff you really like learn to replicate it then alter it (rinse repeat), listen to loads of jungle (that's what ur making right?), ude your imagination, if all of that fails you suck - stop trying
