An introduction to the Drum ‘n’ Bass Rhythms: its basic grooves, feel and attitude. Gerwin Eisenhauer explains the historical background of this music style from the 90s and its origin in 1969, when Gregory Coleman, the drummer of the American soul group “The Winstons”, played the famous 4 bar “Amen Break” on the B-side track of their single “Color Him Father”.
