We all hear the bass in a song. It could be metal, it could be rock, it could be electronic, or it could be hip-hop. One this is for sure though! Electronic masters the use of the bass. There are 4 different heavy bass genres for electronic that specialize in the bass:

Jamaican influence with a fast beat (120-150). Tends to have a low-pitched bass but has an uplifting feeling.

Another Jamaican influence. Dub is the older Dubstep, with its bpm 80-100. Still a slightly uplifting feeling, and hardly ever has vocals.

Dubstep has 80-140 bpm featuring very strong bass drops and bass lines. Normally very dark feeling, and sometimes purely eerie. Developed in England and America and is the most popular of all the bass-strong Electronic genres.

Drum and Bass:
DnB a faster Dubstep, starting at 160 bpm and capping at a wopping 180 bpm. Old school use to feature funk and hip-hop bass-lines, but now has the heavier Dubstep bass mixed in as well. DnB ranges from uplifting party music, to dark war-like beats.

So, now that you know the classification, and you listen to electronic, what do you listen to most!?

Note that House, Trance, and Techno are different genres that do not specialize in the bass.

DnB for me as I rarely listen to Reggae and never to Dubstep or it's derivatives.

DnB is simply the most amazing genre ever.
