Techno

It was a dance music, born at the end of the 80's. It took influences from funk, disco and hiphop music. It used only electronic devices, just like synthesizers, keyboards and computers.  

 

It was a very repetitive music, with an evident dance purpose.  Sometimes there was even no melody at all. During the 90's, techno transformed into House, with an emphasis over a hooked melody, and in the late 90's into Progressive House, with a predominance of the low electronic sounds, specially the kick effect. In Spain, it was a success the subgenre Bakalao.

 

Some rock bands were Aqua, Technotronic and Daft punk

New Age

New-age music is downtempo music intended to create artistic inspiration, relaxation, and optimism. It is used by listeners for yoga, massage, meditation, and reading as a method of stress management or to create a peaceful atmosphere in their home or other environments, and is often associated with environmentalism and New Age spirituality.

 

New age includes both electronic forms, frequently relying on sustained synth pads or long sequencer-based runs, and acoustic forms, featuring instruments such as flutes, piano, acoustic guitar and a wide variety of non-western acoustic instruments. Vocal arrangements were initially rare in new age, but as it has evolved vocals have become more common, especially vocals featuring Native American-, Sanskrit-, or Tibetan-influenced chants, or lyrics based on mythology such as Celtic legends or the realm of Faerie.

 

New-age music is defined more by the effect or feeling it produces rather than the instruments used in its creation; it may be electronic, acoustic, or a mixture of both. New-age artists range from solo or ensemble performances using classical-music instruments ranging from the piano, acoustic guitar, flute or harp to electronic musical instruments, or from Eastern instruments such as the sitar, tabla, and tamboura.New-age music with an ambient sound that has the explicit purpose of aiding meditation and relaxation, or aiding and enabling various alternative spiritual practices, such as alternative healing, yoga practice, guided meditation, chakra auditing, and so on. 

 

Some artist are Enya, Mike Oldfield, Kitaro, or George Winston.

Hip-Hop Revival

Hip hop music, also called hip-hop, rap music, or hip-hop music, is a music genre consisting of a stylized rhythmic music that commonly accompanies rapping, a rhythmic and rhyming speech that is chanted. It developed as part of hip hop culture, a subculture defined by four key stylistic elements: MCing/rapping, DJing/scratching, break dancing, and graffiti writing. Other elements include sampling (or synthesis), and beatboxing.The popularity of hip hop music continued through the 2000s. The continuation of hip hop can also be seen in different national contexts: more rhythmical patterns from Africa, and more technology use from US and Japan (known as KPop and JPop). Hip hop has globalized into many cultures worldwide, as evident through the emergence of numerous regional scenes. It has emerged globally as a movement based upon the main tennets of hip hop culture. The music and the art continue to embrace, even celebrate, its transnational dimensions while staying true to the local cultures to which it is rooted. Hip-hop's inspiration differs depending on each culture. Still, the one thing virtually all hip hop artists worldwide have in common is that they acknowledge their debt to those African American people in New York who launched the global movement.

Dubstep

Dubstep is a genre of electronic dance music that originated in South London, England. It emerged in the late 1990s as a development within a lineage of related styles such as techno and reggae. The music generally features syncopated drum and percussion patterns with bass lines that contain prominent sub bass frequencies.

The earliest dubstep releases date back to 1998. At the beginning this music was darker, more experimental with less emphasis on vocals, and attempted to incorporate elements of breakbeat and drum and bass into 2-step. A very early supporter of the sound was BBC Radio 1 DJ John Peel, who started playing it from 2003 onwards. In 2004, the last year of his show, his listeners voted Distance, Digital Mystikz, and Plastician in their top 50 for the year. Dubstep started to spread beyond small local scenes in late 2005 and early 2006; Towards the end of the 2000s and into the early 2010s, the genre started to become more commercially successful in the UK, with more singles and remixes entering the music charts.

Trap (EDM)

In the late 2000s and early 2010s, elements of trap music—which was originally derived from southern hip hop—filtered into electronic music and created a distinct style of electronic dance music (EDM).
In 2012, a style of electronic dance music (EDM) incorporated elements of trap music, and began gaining popularity. Most of these new subgenres combined snare and hi-hats typical to hip hop music and sub-bass and slow tempos of dubstep, creating dirty, aggressive beats and dark melodies.
This genre saw the use of techno, dub, and house sounds combined with the Roland TR-808 drum samples and vocal samples typical of trap.
The new wave of the genre has been labeled by some as "EDM trap" to distinguish it from the rap genre. The terms "Trap-house" and "Trapstep" are often labeled by producers to describe the musical structure of an individual track.

 

All instruments used in this music are electronic: synthesizers, keyboards, and digital audio workstation.
In 2013, a fan-made video of electronic trap producer Baauer's track "Harlem Shake" became an internet meme, propelling the track to become the first trap song to hit number one on the Billboard Hot 100. This challenge consisted of one person dancing to the rhythm of the song until the beat dropped, in which then whoever else within the video would dance along with the person dancing in the beginning.

Tropical house

Tropical house, also known as trop house, is a subgenre of house music, with elements of dancehall. Artists of the genre are often featured at various summer festivals such as Tomorrowland. The genre was popularized by artists including Thomas Jack, Kygo, Matoma, Lost Frequencies, Seeb and Klingande.

The term "Tropical House" began as a joke by Australian producer Thomas Jack, but has since been gaining popularity among listeners. The term "trouse" should not be confused with tropical house, as "trouse" is a genre that instead combines the feeling of trance and the beats of progressive house, using electro synths.

 

Tropical house is a subgenre of house music. Thus, it possesses typical house music characteristics, including synthesizer instrumentation, and a 4/4 kick drum pattern. Tropical house differentiates itself from deep house, which can often have a very dark sound, whereas tropical house can be described as having a more uplifting and relaxing sound. The tempo of tropical house songs is a little slower than deep house (110-115 bpm). Tropical house does not use the pumping compression effect of "big room" electro house. It usually includes tropical instruments such as steel drums, marimba, guitar, saxophone or even pan flute, and can sometimes use dembow rhythm patterns often attributed to genres such as dancehall and reggaeton.

Hipster R&B

Hipster R&B (also referred to as PBR&B, indie R&B, experimental R&B, and alternative R&B) is a term used by music journalists to describe a stylistic alternative to contemporary R&B.

There has been a variety of discussion about the differing genre terms, with several critics describing the music under the broad category of "alternative R&B" or "indie R&B". The term "hipster R&B" has been commonly used, as has the term "PBR&B"—a combination of "PBR" (the abbreviation for Pabst Blue Ribbon, a beer most recently associated with the hipster subculture) and R&B. 

This music can define as an exchange between EDM, rock, hip hop and R&B. It uses a echo-laden and lofty sound, with synthesizers and filtered drums. The lyrics are about drugs, but in a way to reach a personal philosophy.

Electro latin

Electro Latino is a musical genre that was born in Spain and Latin America in 2010 as a result of the mixture between the tech-house genre and Latin rhythms such as merengue and others.

It is a genre that comes from mixing electronics with Latin-based musical genres. The considered creator of this genre is Juan Magán, who since 2008 has begun to create music of these characteristics with songs like Mariah and Verano Azul. These two songs are considered the pioneers in this genre. As of 2011, the genre begins to become more popular and other world-famous artists such as Pitbull, Shakira, Enrique Iglesias or Jennifer López begin to incorporate this new style to their songs.

 

Despite being a recent musical genre, Electro Latino has greatly influenced the music style of many singers. The one who has received the most influence from this new genre is Pitbull, singer of international recognition, with songs like I know You want me. Pitbull and Wisin y Yandel have worked with many artists and we can say that thanks to them other singers have also been influenced by the Electro Latino. We can name for example the singer Jennifer Lopez, Don Omar, Shakira, Paulina Rubio or Enrique Iglesias.

Don Omar - Danza Kuduro

 

Shakira - Addicted to you
