Backing Track
A BACKING TRACK is an audio recording on audiotape, CD or a digital recording medium or a MIDI
MIDI
recording of synthesized instruments , often of a rhythm section or other accompaniment parts that live musicians play along with or sing along to. Backing tracks enable singers and bands to add parts to their music which would be impractical to perform live, such as string section or choir parts which were recorded in the studio. A backing track can be used by a one person band (e.g., a singer/guitarist) to add bass, drums and keyboards to their live shows without the cost of hiring extra musicians. A small pop group or rock band (e.g., a power trio ) can use backing tracks to add a string section , horn section or backing vocals to their live shows, giving a fuller, richer sound

Oldschool Jungle
JUNGLE is a genre of electronic music derived from old school hardcore that developed in England
England
in the early 1990s as part of rave scenes. The style is characterized by rapid tempos (150 to 200 bpm ) and breakbeats , as well as dub reggae -derived basslines , heavily syncopated percussive loops, samples and synthesized effects. Long pitch-shifted snare rolls are common in oldschool jungle. The terms "jungle" and "drum and bass " are often used interchangeably by the layman but this should not be the case. Jungle originated out of oldschool and in the late 1990s the term "drum and bass" was used in association with music that did not have the same emphasis on breakbeats and complex production
