Why is it that people with no musical knowledge think they should make drum and bass? Biggest problem with the entire scene imo. Dnb needs more musicians and less djs

I dont really listen to much new dnb and haven't been raving for ages. I'm a big vinyl head so play what I can find. Been nailing the Afrobeat and digital reggae of late.

It's a big problem I think at the moment with what new dnb I hear, it's influenced by dnb and not much else, people trying to recreate last years big tune with no personal input. Needs more soul, dub, jazz, techno rip offs and less D Bridge/Pendulum/Sub focus rips.

define "musical knowledge"

imo some amazing tunes in all kinds of genres have been made by people that can't play instruments. hip hop as a prime example. But yeah it's not good when people have no idea of rhythm/interaction of the elements of what makes a track work start bashing together horrible noises with no real idea of how to make those noises equal something better.

To be fair, dnb was never about musical skills, it's always been about production tricks and techniques, pushing limits and interesting sample choice.
The best dnb IMO made was 96-2002 tech step, so much great music coming out. 99% sampled Reece's, breaks and SCI samples. No musical talent needed just a good ear and great engineering skills. Most of which was self taught.

I'll tell you what, in response to what New era said, dnb definitely needs more djs and less producers in the clubs.
Dull 1 dimensional sets galore.

I do think it's a bit elitist to suggest that people with no previous musical experience cant make dnb music, many of the great musicians were self taught and had no experience before hand. it's hardly Mozart.

Ah but it can be learnt, i mean you don't know you've got talent till you try, fair enough a lot of people never will, some will already have a good musical knowledge so become good producers easier and others will work very hard and get good. I can play trumpet, all be it not very well, that's my musical experience
Sure there are just naturals but I imagine they will be earning proper money doing some other type music.

I'm just saying that drum and bass for me is more technical than musical.

I see what you're getting at Ceejay but don't entirely agree. Sampling reeses and breaks wasn't particularly technical but the ideas were fresh (at the time) but the technicality of what they were doing wasn't necessarily pushing boundaries. There's plenty music that's technically well produced but is dull lifeless shit, it's lacking the idea in the first place, doesn't matter how well you execute a process if the end result is shite.

That's just freak though

But seriously I've been took out of context with the word musical.
Musical for me = read music, play instrument properly, write your own music(on paper) etc.
Technical = make phat tune on laptop using vsts, know processing, eq, tuning etc.
Freak = play 2 pianos.
