Heavy F****** EDM Hear It Drop

Owner: DJ R3V3R3ND MURD3R

Drum & Bass might be one of the most intense, misunderstood sounds within the EDM scene. While its roots are in the hardcore rave scene of London in the early 1990s, it mutated into a darker, more sinister sound all to its own, gobbling up reggae/dancehall sub-bass with sped-up breakbeats. Contrary to popular belief, dubstep was not directly born from a love of dub music, it started as a darker, more experimental take on the 2-step sound that was running through London in the late 1990s. Clocking in at 140BPM, the early sound of dubstep was far from the aggressive tracks that are associated with the genre today. Early incarnations of dubstep are over a decade old, but the sound really started to grow in 2005. Trap, in an EDM sense, is the 808-heavy sound that dance music producers have been working within since early 2012. The hardstyle of today is typified by tracks around 150BPM that are heavy on the distorted kicks thrown under insanely catchy melodies. Europeans have loved the sound, as it has roots in gabber and old hardcore styles, but its slowly sweeping into the American EDM scene. House is one of the most popular forms of EDM. It's almost three decades old, and is one of the truly American-born styles. It grew in Chicago, rising from the aftermath of disco, and the "four-to-the-floor" sound is one of the most recognizable forms of EDM in clubs and on the mainstream. Trance was born in Germany, and is one of the most popular styles of EDM. Ranging from 110-150BPM, trance is known for repetitiously building up and breaking down huge melodies. That's the long and short of it. Techno is NOT a way to describe all of electronic music, but it is one of the genres that's been around the longest.
