The Jump-up thread

That DJ Haste mix inspired me to make a thread about jump up. Does it really suck? What are the good tunes? When do you feel like listening to jump-up? Is BBJ's mom hot?

To start, can anyone accurately define jump-up??? technics1200

"Jump-Up is a subgenre of jungle and drum and bass that was popular with fans of drum and bass in the late 1990s. It is characterized by deep synthesizer basslines and highly energetic and uptempo drum loops."

So, any tune with a synthesizer bassline qualifies as a jump up tune? No matter what effect is put on it? The drum loops comment seems pretty vague to me.

"It is generally more funky and less dark than other drum and bass."

But there are plently examples of darker jump up, right?

"Classic examples include DJ Zinc's Super Sharp Shooter or Zinc's remix of the Fugees' Ready Or Not, which also samples Redman on the original version of his first collaboration with Method Man, How High; extensive use of hiphop samples is common in jumpup"

Agreed?

"Around 2003/4, jumpup came back into vogue."

It did? hehe

Sarcasm? I love when 2nd heavy drop on that tune. where the drums just pop off and it's running that dark b-line. One of my all time favorites. Plus love the way he uses the "hey hey hey hey hey hey hey hey hey hey hey"

I'm no producer, but isn't all jump up relatively easy to produce? Some tunes aren't all about heavy production, and I'll bet it's arguable that some of the classics weren't that hard to make.

I would say by todays standards andd with todays technology jump up is easy to produce. But i bet with what they were working with back when this stuff was new it wasn't as easy as one may think.

I have a soft spot for jump up. Love it. To me it's just super fun no worries tunes. It's really easy to mix and pretty fun to play.

Anyone that knows me knows i still always like to throw down the jump up styles.

I can't believe nobody has mentioned aphrodite or Mickey Finn yet?????

DJ Zinc was producing some serious jump up tunes. Pranksters and The Fix come to mind

ya, fun would be a good descriptor. Some of those breaks get a little boring if I'm subjected to them repeatedly. For instance, Aphrodite's Urban Jungle is a bit of a yawner for me. Some excellent tunes are in there, don't get me wrong. That mix definately has it's moments. My personal favorite is his self titled CD, I love almost every tune on there.
