Neurohop (also known as neuro) is a genre of music that originated around mid 2011 to 2012. The music is characterized by its dark and aggressive atmosphere similar to neurofunk.
Neurohop originated from neurofunk, a subgenre of drum and bass music. Its origins can trace back to the person who coined the term, Kursa.
Kursa is a music producer who created the term to describe his work. He created a 15-minute mix of 9 tracks that he had made, titling it "Let's call it Neurohop". This is the earliest known time that the word was used. The original has since been deleted, but was re-uploaded by Kursa to twine.fm.
Some of the main characteristics of the neurohop genre are:
- Filtered and distorted basses
- Multiband frequency splitting basses (taking low mid & high frequency bands and applying different processing to each band)
- Sampled basses (known more informally as a "Reese" bass, from a sound sampled from "Just Want Another Chance" by Reese)
- Rhythmic bass repetitions
- Heavy hitting and/or processed drums
- Pitch-bending bass
- Hip-hop tempo (generally around 80-115 BPM)
- Glitch-based audio
- Time-based audio stretching and warping
Some noteworthy artists to popularize this genre include:
