Glitch Hop is a subgenre of Glitch music, heavily fusing elements of Hip Hop. This subgenre may feature glitches, chopping, cutting, and funk-inspired hip-hop beats. Since its creation, Glitch Hop has slowly shed its more Hip Hop elements while being heavily influenced by Dubstep and Drum & Bass. 110 BPM is not a genre per se, taking the role of, to some extent, an umbrella term. This provides a somewhat common tempo for songs in this subgenre. As with Indie Dance and Nu Disco, when Monstercat releases a song in this subgenre it can be thought of as Glitch Hop and/or 110 BPM. In later Glitch Hop tracks, Monstercat doesn't use the 110 BPM next to Glitch Hop.
- Neurohop - this subgenre is heavily influenced by Neurofunk, incorporating elements such as the illustrious Reese bass, filtered, distorted, oscillating and pitch-bent basses, sharp-transient, snappy and heavy-hitting drums, while usually employing dark, cold atmospheres, inspiring sentiments of precision, consistency and sometimes approaching even sci-fi themes. The technique of utilizing downsampling (bit-reducing / bit-crushing) is sometimes used as well. Examples of tracks containing or that could be classified as Neurohop, on Monstercat, are:
- "No Turning Back" (by Protostar) - in the second drop,
- "Echoes Of The Past" (by Protostar)
- "Genesis" (by Protostar)
- "Scorpion Pit" (by Protostar - not to be confused with the VIP)
- "The Vale" (by Trivecta, featuring Miyoki)
- "Aether and Light" (by Varien) - in the first drop
- "Chrysalis" (by Protostar & Draper) - an outlier founded on the strong contrast between heavy, processed basses and melodic elements
- "Melatonin" (by Soupandreas)
Among artists outside Monstercat, which produce Neurohop, there are Copycatt, Frequent, Culprate, Vorso and KOAN Sound.
The Monstercat color associated with this subgenre is green.
