This fascinating, brilliant 20-minute video narrates the history of the “Amen Break,” a six-second drum sample from the b-side of a chart-topping single from 1969. This sample was used extensively in early hiphop and sample-based music, and became the basis for drum-and-bass and jungle music — a six-second clip that spawned several entire subcultures.
Is a genre of music which grew out of reggae music in the 1960s, and is commonly considered a subgenre, though it has developed to extend beyond the scope of reggae. Dub is characterized as a “version” of an existing song, typically emphasizing the drums and bass for a sound popular in local Sound Systems. The instrumental tracks are typically drenched in sound processing effects, with most of the lead instruments and vocals dropping in and out of the mix. The music sometimes features processed sound effects and other noises, such as animal sounds, babies crying, and producers shouting instructions at the musicians.
Example of some dub:
The verb dub is defined as making a copy of one recording to another. The process used by Jamaican producers when making dubs was to use previously recorded material, modify the material, and subsequently record it to a new master mix, in effect transferring or “dubbing” the material.
Dubstep is a genre of electronic dance music that originated in South East London. Its overall sound has been described as “tightly coiled productions with overwhelming bass lines and reverberant drum patterns, clipped samples, and occasional vocals”. One characteristic of dubstep is the wobble bass, where an extended bass note is manipulated musically. This contrasts with other styles of electronic music where the same, unmanipulated sample is played at different pitches to make a bassline, as on a musical score. Wobble bass is produced by using a very low frequency oscillator to manipulate a bass parameter, such as volume, distortion or filter cutoff. The resulting sound is a bassline dominated by single, extended bass note which has a distinctive wobble sound.
Ill give you an example even though i’m sure you don’t actually need one :P
