9. The common element of this genre is a prominent
kick drum on every beat , usually generated by a
drum machine or sampler. The drum track is filled
out with hi-hat cymbal patterns that nearly always
include an open hi-hat on eighth note off-beats
between each kick, and a snare drum or clap
sound on beats two and four of every bar. This
pattern is derived from so-called "four-on-the-floor"
dance drumbeats of the 1960s and especially the
1970s disco drummers. Producers commonly
layer sampled drum sounds to achieve a more
complex sound, and they tailor the mix for large
club sound systems, de-emphasizing lower mid-
range frequencies (where the fundamental
frequencies of the human voice and other
instruments lie) in favor of bass and hi-hats. Which
