Join Josh Harris for an in-depth discussion in this video Choosing the tempo for different styles or genres, part of Remixing Techniques: Time Stretching.
It's important to make sure that the BPM you choose for your remix falls within…the accepted BPM range for the GENRE that you're remixing in.…While this is by no means exhaustive.…I've selected a list of what I feel are some of the most relevant electronic…music genres of today and yesterday.…First up we have Hip Hop/Rap and Trip-Hop, whose respective BPM Ranges fall…between 60 and 110. Next up is Acid Jazz which generally falls between 80 and 126…beats per minute. Then we have Tribal House 120-232 beats per minute.…
After that we have Euro/Disco House and mainstream house which falls between 120 and 134…beats per minute. Trends/Hard House and Techno are quite a bit faster with BPM…Ranges around 130 to 155.…And Breakbeat has a wide range of 103 beats per minute to 155 beats per minute.…Dubstep has quickly become one of the more popular genres of electronic…music and most Dubstep tracks fall at 140 beats per minute.…
And finally, Jungle and Drum-n-bass whose BPMs are very fast and fall between 160 and…180 beats per minute.…
