...creating certain types of electronic music? For example, I'd like to try my hand at some Drum 'n' Bass. The problem is that I just don't have the exposure to DnB as I do to say Trance and Downtempo. So, I'm not sure where to start.

I feel fairly comfortable creating Downtempo, and I'm working on my first trance track. I also noticed that computermusic.co.uk has a Trance guide up (three parts if I'm not mistaken) for free. Now, I'm sure they are just guidelines, but it can't hurt to read them.

I'm not sure about your part of the world/country, but where I live, the DnB scene is rather shady. It's a scene that you probably want to stay away from if you can. But, that doesn't keep me from enjoying the music.

I know Jump Up is dead (may it rest in peace), but I don't like the minimalistic stuff either. Finding a happy medium is what I'm after. Anyone have any advice or possibly a link/tutorial on creating DnB?

For those who are interested, here is the link to the page with the Trance Guides from computer music.

Thanks in advance

Wes

i'm no expert in any particular style or area in electronic and dance music
but i have some ideas to share with you about DnB
since i think it's cool to explore its roots also..
i recommend listening to some albums of Herbie Hancock (jazz pianist)
for example.. Dis Is Da Drum, Future to Future..
he incoporates some funk / jazz stuffs with turntablism, dj technics
and somehow it reflects the birth of DnB ideas.

have fun. and thanks for the trance link ^^

I was into DnB a while back (not that I'd actually do a live DJ set or anything like that), but I used to go to SpinWarp's forums for info. They have some good tutorials (since the DnB song form can be rather rigid), including this one:
