whats the difference between midtempo and glitch hop


Recommended Posts

Maybe it's the Chaos in glitch's drums that make it Glitchy where as mid tempo can go into more groovy repetitiveness.

+ the emphasis on Bizarre massively effected noises and random sound recordings in glitch and mid tempo stuff can go without that I think

Anyway that's what I'm saying :P

Nooope... Midtempo refers to the BPM. I usually categorize anything between 80BPM and 119 BPM as midtempo. Midtempo usually has a broken-beat, but thats certainly not a rule. Glitch-hop would be a subcategory of midtempo, and a very blurred subcategory at that.

How does one differentiate between glitch-hop and various other midtempo subcategories? Its really just the feeling of the song. Usually I put my more crunchy, body-rockin midtempo into glitch-hop, and keep my smoother, more psychedelic midtempo in my "deep groove" subcategory, and my funk-inspired wobbly stuff in my "funk" section. I also keep a "downtempo" section for stuff thats a little more mellow.

To be honest, I think that one's categorization shouldn't be limited by other's perspectives. I separate tracks based on what I'd like readily available during a particular set. If I'm playing a deeper, trippier set, I'd rather not sort through a bunch of Excision and Datsik to find something thats going to mix well.

everybody know that midtempo is in the range of 90-110 bpm , like I said , its only the drumline that make the difference midtempo is 4x4 - glitch hop , moombathon,moombahcore and zook bass is 4x4 with a moombah drumline (snare in 2 and 3 ) and giltch hop , well you can make the difference
