Collection: Slap House

A subgenre of house that derived of deep house during the late 2010s.

The genre usually plays around 120 bpm. Slap house is closely related to Brazilian bass,

but has less bombastic sound design, more melodic and contains radio-friendly elements, comparing to club-oriented Brazilian bass. The name arose due to the bouncy baselines being reminiscent of bassists playing their instruments with a technique called slap bass.

The songs of this new genre have more present and strong beats and even more elaborate melodies than their Brazilian version. Also, the songs are lacking in clap at the beginning.
