To start, can anyone accurately define jump-up???
"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."
"It is generally more funky and less dark than other drum and bass."
"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"
"Around 2003/4, jumpup came back into vogue."
ghaleon said: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.
sauce said: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?????
