Bmore Gutter Music

I will admit I can be late to the party on things sometimes. Not that I front about it, but don't ever consider this blog to be a head of the pack on EVERYTHING. Save for maybe the dancehall stuff and that's mainly due to America's general apathy towards the genre and I can just phone up Unite when I don't know the latest tunes.

But, I have to admit that I completely missed the party when it comes to bmore club music.

Here is the Wikipedia definition:

"Baltimore club is based on an 8/4 beat structure, and includes tempos around 130 beats per minute.[3][4] It combines repetitive, looped vocal snippets similar to ghetto house and ghettotech. These samples are often culled from television shows such as Sanford and Son and SpongeBob SquarePants,[4], though can also be simple repeated calls and chants. The instrumental tracks include heavy breakbeats and call and response stanzas similar to those found in the go-go music of Washington, D.C.. More often than not, the breakbeats are pulled from two records: "Sing Sing" by disco band Gaz, and "Think (About It)" by Lyn Collins.[1] Much like the rave-era sub-genre of techno music known as breakbeat hardcore, Baltimore club sounds as if the music was intentionally hurried, as each song is made with a limited palette of sounds and is based on similar frameworks."

I think it basically blends the faster elements of electro, house, hip-hop, rap, and booty bass and uses a lot of call and response type samples. At any rate it goes does well if you're in the mood, but might be a bit too much for those still stuck in the backpacker mentality.
