Jump-Up is a subgenre of jungle and drum and bass that was popular with fans of drum and bass in the late 1990s. It is characterized by deep synthesizer basslines and highly energetic and uptempo drum loops. It is generally more funky and less dark than other drum and bass. Classic examples include DJ Zinc's Super Sharp Shooter or Zinc's remix of the Fugees' Ready Or Not, which also samples Redman on the original version of his first collaboration with Method Man, How High; extensive use of hiphop samples is common in jumpup. It was designed to be played in nightclubs to get a crowd to "jump up" and dance. Around 2003/4, jumpup came back into vogue.

Jump Up is also the name of a record company that released hard drum and bass records from 1997-1998.
