Big Beat Music Description

Breakbeat that is influenced by acid house. The name refers to the loud, bassy drum beats that make up the songs' beats and bass lines. It was one of the more commercially successful electronic styles of the 1990s, described perfectly by the Chemical Brothers as featuring 'block rockin' beats'.

A brasher cousin of the doped-out trip hop, the featuring of indie rock singers on a variety of big beat releases helped to make it an entry point to electronica for many people who had not yet succumbed.
