electronic dance music http://kmuw.org en Musical Space: Four On The Floor http://kmuw.org/post/musical-space-four-floor <p>Four on the floor is certain style of drum beat where the bass drum is hit with a steady quarter-note pulse; four equal stomps on the foot-pedal per measure. It’s very different from older pop beats where the bass drum typically hits beats 1 and 3. It really came into prominence with disco in the seventies, a real departure from rock and funk. Four on the floor is popular now as the driving force of many kinds of electronic dance music. Tue, 20 Aug 2013 12:39:40 +0000 Mark Foley 22179 at http://kmuw.org Musical Space: Four On The Floor
