Beatport has announced a new genre, bass house. Beatport becomes the first digital music download store to add the category.
The genre’s history spans back to the 1990s and has evolved into the 2010s, taking on many different forms. It has grown from a UK sound into something that has been espoused internationally and is played regularly at festivals and in clubs.
“Bass house is a very useful sub-genre for browsing on Beatport,” says AC Slater. “It fills in all the gaps between garage/bassline and future house/electro. The bass house section will undoubtedly include loads of exciting releases and artists."
