“Bass” is an emerging new class of dance floor music. Loosely defined and identified by the use of bass frequency as the dominant component of track composition some commentators are referring to this development as post-dubstep.
Regardless of the semantics of genre; producers, Dj’s & audiences are embracing this fresh direction in electronic music for is savvy use of dance music knowledge and history mixed with cutting edge rhythm & production techniques.
Electronic music is prone to stagnating itself through the overt commercialisation and mindless iterations of popular trends and hype in the scene. Its also know for forming strong division between genre and style.
Bass music equally abandons and explores these classical divisions by sourcing, samples and integrating elements from all tempos and styles of dance music. Casually creating new hybrid genres, blatantly breaking rules or wantonly reinterpreting stylistic clichés. The result is a wonderful blurring and confusing of lines between; underground and commercial; old school and contemporary.
By breaking rules, ignoring conventions and literally abandoning the defines of genre “Bass Music” is escaping the classic traps of dance music and injecting a long anticipated feeling of freshness for the future of dance floors.
