The Sub Genre Drum-Step
I’m still not sure about Drum-Step. It’s just Drum’n’Bass half timed right? I think it was Rusko‘s Hold On (Sub Focus Remix) that first made it to my eardrums and it was explained that it was Drum-Step. This half timing has been going on for a while though. I remember the Tekdubz shows back in the day where half-timing between D’n’B and Hip Hop was treated like sport.
I think it’s still too much of a loose melt. Drum-Step, to me, still sounds like either fast Dub-Step with mostly D’n’B syths and drums or just half timed D’nB. I do like it but, It needs it’s own weekly party or at least a new artist to purify the style. West Coast Stand Up!
Even though this song is from way back (this summer) I feel like it’s a fine example of what Drum-Step accomplish. Enjoy!
