Future Bass, a subgenre of electronic music, is described as having a focus on a hard bassline with detuned synthesizers mostly including sawtooth waves and square waves. The sound waves are often modulated using automation or low-frequency oscillation controlling the cutoff of an audio filter (typically a low- or high-pass filter) to make the waveform sound louder or quieter. In addition, it is common to find the utilization of a somewhat "twinkly-sounding" gradual rise in pitch during "risers" (pre-drop buildups) using arpeggio chords, vocal chops or vocoders.

The future bass genre stems from trap, Chicago footwork and UK bass. It is related to the post-dubstep movement in the United Kingdom. It is comparable to chiptune and glitch hop.[1]

The color associated with the genre before genre colors were phased out was: Periwinkle (Hex: #9A98FC) (RGB: 154, 152, 252)
