#Miami Bass

Monday, September 17, 2012

by Julia Webster



I never know what to say when people ask me what kinds of music I listen to because I am the WORST at categorizing music. Sometimes you’ll run into someone who say things like “I listen to progressive shoegaze, analog noise rock and on occasion folktronica” and all you can do is smile and nod cause you have no idea what they just said. You’re not alone. These are some weird genres and some of them are actually really good. My goal here on SEARCHPARY is to break down a different genre every week, give a brief history, what the genre derived from and who pioneered it.

This week, we covered #Miami bass (aka booty bass)
