Tribal, tropical, kuduro, funky, afro beats all overlap in drum style. Going against house’s simple four to the floor beat. It sounds African to me, to others South American and some even Londonish! Well after more than a year of exposure to the colourful style in house today, I’ve certainly turned out a happier man because of it. We’ve had the beautifully ethnic sampled wonders, banging bleepers and funky house of London all sharing that sexy beat and percussion sound that really gets you moving. I thought I’d unload some tracks on you showing the diversity of the beat. Also thrown in a few electro house tracks and a cheeky dubber. Does anyone else hate saying “dubstep” now? Noddy know-nothings have ruined the word for me. Bastards.
