The "drop" is a common feature of Drum and Bass, Dubstep and Brostep (but it can be found in other genres, too). It happens when the percussion of a song pauses for a few seconds, only to come back with a heavier bassline. There are multiple types of drops:
- Type A: Characterized by loud, explosive basses. Common in dubstep and house music, and made popular by artists such as Skrillex.Type B: A smoother, quieter bassline than a Type A. Often uses a growl or fuzz bass, and is overlaid by synths. Common in variations of dubstep such as smoothstep, and some pop music.Type C: Involves use of mid-range synths or guitars instead of or accompanying a bass. Used in dubstep and certain genres of rock and metal.
