Drum & Bass is damn near the redheaded step-child of the EDM scene. While dubstep was the recent wave of the current dance music revival (with no one being able to escape house in its many forms as well), drum & bass has been around much longer, and has had a lot of flirtations with mainstream media, from pioneer Goldie being featured James Bond films to being found in numerous TV advertisements and as beds in films. The best part? Some of your favorite EDM producers of today cut their teeth in the dnb sound.
That's right, from Knife Party to Bro Safari, there's a serious batch of former drum & bass producers making moves in a number of different arenas. And mind you, these are just the 15 we chose to highlight. There are many (like Nero and Chase & Status) who gained fame as dnb artists that branched into other sounds, as well as Daniel Disaster of Heroes x Villains, who has had his hand in the dnb scene long before he became the trap ambassador. They cut their teeth in this scene, and went on to capitalize elsewhere.Click to start the list
