Broken Beat Music Description

A melting-pot genre distinguished by its avoidance of a bass-heavy kick drum hitting on every beat; the kick patterns are lighter and syncopated with prominent staccato claps or snares. Other than its lack of steady kick drum, it often sounds more like jazzy deep house with hints of drum & bass. It was most popular in the mid-2000s.
