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.
Subgenres[edit | edit source]
- 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 color associated with the genre before genre colors were phased out was: Dark Green (Hex: #0B9757) (RGB: 11, 151, 87)
