A new kind of electro-house music started coming to the surface around the early 2010s, known as the “big room”, when artists like KSHMR, Hardwell, Blasterjaxx, and Martin Garrix started infusing it according to their music styles. The genre was further given hype through popular EDM-oriented events and major festivals like the famous Tomorrowland.
This genre of electronic music typically includes a tempo within the range of 126 to 132 beats per minute. The tracks generally feature long build-ups ending with an electro-styled beat drop followed by the traditional house music four-on-the-floor kick drums.
Nowadays, ‘big room’ has begun to dissociate from the traditional classification of subgenres under electro house music and come out as a genre of its own. Big room tracks have a close resemblance with Dutch house music and often incorporate beat drops, synth-driven breakdowns, regular drum beats, simple melodies, sub-bass layered kicks, and minimalist percussion. The layout of a big room track closely resembles the basic layout of an electro-house track, and the genre is thought to be a subgenre of electro-house music.
If you’re someone with little electronic music exposure, it is most likely that you will be familiar with this genre, as it is the one that is mostly commercialised. Unlike the other genres, big room tracks are often played on the radio, which is also the reason why big room is a starting point for a lot of people.
