The simple answer might be: the original #breakbeat (sample) would be for example around 120bpm pitched up to 160bpm for #jungle or D&B.
Not sure if these are the exact numbers, yet basically its a pitched up Breakbeat (~5 Semitones) for Drum & Bass. All still #Breaks in the end of the Day. The origin of #jungle/D&B is actually sampling bb's on 45RPM instead of the original 33RPM, which is about 5 Semitones pitched Up.
My homie @LandofBits can surely add more in depth, than my simplified version. I would say its more in the Pitch Up than Tempo of the BPMs.
stupid simple question, what is breakbeat?
or what is the difference between breakbeat and drum n bass as roni size, ltj bukem, ed rush and so on
