    Sort of.

    Dubstep and Drum and Bass are pretty closely related...I made a family tree of electro music one time, I can't remember where I put it though. Dubstep and DnB are like siblings or roommates...Dubstep is the loud, loveably obnoxious one, and DnB is a little more modest and methodical, but still knows how to party.

    And Darkwave is their crazy downstairs neighbor they hang out with sometimes.Naaaah, too uncool for the #messlyfe. I just like to hang out in loading docks and pretend to talk on my radio so that people will like me. - Mfratt

    ^ It's interesting observe how technology has permitted certain genres of electronic music. Namely, sample time and time stretching. Sample time was expensive (RAM, type of sampler, etc) and the ability to change the tempo of a sampled beat without affecting the pitch, critical. Hardcore didn't have time stretch in that era, so beats were pitched up - often from hip hop sources.
    It's amazing stuff - to anyone intretested, ha!
    I gleaned a lot from studio time, when I a started, in the '90s.....

    This cool, but requires time.....

    "I still don't fully understand what Drum and Bass is."

    Sampled hip hop beat, chopped up, time timestretched to around 160 bpm, then the deep reggae style bass is at half tempo underneath. That's the format! Add vocal delays, cut ups from records, vocals, etc.

    #2, and #3 definitely have the stereotypical Drum & Bass/Jungle beat. Break Beat is another variation on that beat, and it kind of became it's own thing... There's also 2step, which is something else... and Dubstep, which is basically slowed-down hiphop beats with the obligatory synth sounds that they use. But dubstep doesn't really have the trademark D&B beat, which I guess is called the "Amen Break."

    On the other side of the EDM family tree, you have Techno, House, and Trance, and all those fun sub-genres that each one has.

    There are as many sub-genre's of drum and bass as there are of punk.

    intelligent
    dark step
    2-step
    nerofunk
    tech step
    hardstep
    liquid funk

    To name a few.

    Here are a quick samples.

    This is an older "intelligent" (atmopsheric) track

    Simialr to above, but starting to get a bit harder (great Twin Peaks sample)
    http://youtu.be/AL50TlfX4uE

    Getting darker

    This is where things start to get BRUTAL:

    A little more epic/dance-floory, but dNb always retains a dark/hard edge for "dance" music.

    This is the "epic" side of things.
