Day 283: Drum & Bass tutorials, lots of them

I've recently been working on (wait for it) a remix competition. Yes, another one. This particular one they have opened it up to multiple genres. That's to say that there will be one winner per genre.

Normally I would probably go down the Electro or Tech house route as per my normal productions, however I have been itching to do some Drum and Bass production for a while, getting back to my old skool Bristol roots.

The timing was perfect, I had recently been looking at some good DnB tutorials ( and fyi) and now felt ready to put some of what I had learnt into practise.

The reason I waited was because D&B in particular sounds really bad, and really weedy if you don't know what you are doing. It needs guts and impact else it just sounds horrid, so I wanted to make sure I could do it justice first.

So... this isn't really about what I have been doing (believe it or not) it's actually all leading up to another handy site I discovered on the way. I was looking for a solid Reese Bass tutorial, and came across the brilliantly titled "Drum and Bass Production".com Talk about doing what it says on the tin...

So yeah, without any more rambling, check it out for all your "Drum and Bass Production" needs.

For those who don't know, the "Reese Bass" is a sound taken from Kevin 'Reese' Saundersons 80's track "Just Want Another Chance" and has since been used heavily in Drum and Bass, becoming synonymous with the sound, here is the original track:
