Live Drum-n-bass

Video by the crazy cats at Skankin Studios, Benfleet Essex

Drum-n-bass (sometimes called jungle) is a hard genre to translate into a live performace, particularly because many of the defining characteristics of the "jungle" sound are the result of turntablist-style tricks involving sweeping eqs/filters, and high speed crossfade action. This video is of four guys giving the traditional turntable-based jungle style a run for its money in a live performance including two keyboardists and a pair of percussionists.
