    Okay so im doing a history of drum and bass assignment for my Music Course at college which will culminate in me having to produce a track that will hopefully replicate the original sounds.

    This is the official history of drum and bass thread, any information, facts on origins, pioneering artists, record labels and tracks post them in here thanks.

    Check the history of DnB on wikipedia, dustek had a part in writing it was it quite epic...

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drum_and_bass

    but if you Plagiarise it and he catches you he will most probably gut you like a fish, that what he has done to a few people in the past so be careful.

    They've been around since '88 but i wouldn't call them a massive influence in the origins of Drum & Bass/Jungle, but, they have made some great great tunes as 'More Rockers', check 'your gonna make me'....BIG TUNE from '95.

    cool assignment john. Sounds good ,

    If you find Marlztah's posts on this forum, (production section ) he has links in his sig, one of which is a thread he made on the Original Breaks, so the Amen Brothers, and how it was used and why ect. Interesting post, and teaches the origins of using certain breaks and instruments for dnb/jungle.

    edit : ive found it for you mate.. check it out, teaches a thing or two.. enjoy

    See King Tubbys Studio Sessions on youtube.

    Everyone has their own version of where it started, but the argument & evidence for Tubby is undeniable, for me.
