I especially had a hard time trying to figure out the best way to answer this myself. Would you answer it by popularity? Or by your personal taste? I did my homework and asked as many people as I could what their opinions were. This is the list I have put together. In no particular order, here are some of the best bass drops of all time! Everyday bass music is changing. Constant change is a good thing and your taste in music might have shifted like mine did a little with every rave I go to. I say to always remember the songs that got you into EDM. Happy raving and appreciate all music.
A drop or beat drop in music, made popular by electronic dance music EDM styles, is a point in a music track where a sudden change of rhythm or bass line occurs, which is preceded by a build-up section and break. Originating from disco and s rock, drops are found in genres such as EDM , trap , hip-hop , K-pop and country. With the aid of music production applications, drops can vary in instrumentation and sound. Electronic instruments and tools for making drops include oscillating synthesizers , vocal samples , a drum beat, and basslines. Certain drops can include a "beat-up" so-named because it is a point where the volume of the foundational kick drum beat is increased, after it has been faded down during a break or buildup and "climax" a single, striking drop done late in the track. There are also types of drops which deviate from the standard, such as "anti-drops" songs in which the chorus is more minimal than the build-up and consecutive "superseding-drops". Drops are performed in music festivals and concerts, as pyrotechnics , visuals, and lighting are designed to correspond with the music. At EDM festivals such as Electric Daisy Carnival , drops are accompanied by confetti explosions, fireworks, and light flashes. The electronic dance festival experience, heightened by a drop-build up, is frequently accommodated by MDMA , a synthetic drug belonging to the amphetamine substance family. These positive sensations are most enhanced when sharing the drop in a social setting.
