Sambass, drum 'n' bossa or drum 'n' sambass (a portmanteau of "samba" and "bass") is a regional sub-genre of drum and bass music mostly native to Brazil,[1] which combines drum and bass rhythms with influences from Latin American music.

Popular artists in the genre include DJ Marky, DJ Patife, XRS Land, Drumagick, Bungle, Marcelinho da Lua and DJ Roots, and four compilation albums titles "Sambass Vol. 1" through "Sambass Vol. 4" were released to international acclaim by the Italian record label Cuadra.[2]
