The Glitch Mob is an LA based Electronica band featuring bass heavy tracks. They are one of the more successful groups to come out of the L.A. Beat Scene. The L.A. Beat Scene is hard to describe. It’s mostly an abstract term for a bunch of eclectic artists getting together to make innovative music.

I’m including a track by The Glitch Mob that I first discovered on the Sin City 2 trailer. It features heavy bass and some Dubstep drops. The second video is a short documentary about the L.A. Beat Scene called Not a Beat, Not a Scene.

Dubstep is an electronic music genre featuring heavy sub bass lines and other experimental flavors. There isn’t a lot of subtlety to this music as it’s intended for dance clubs. What is interesting though, is that artists are incorporating the best parts of the genre, bass lines and percussion patterns, with other genres making for some interesting musical blends. I thought the best way to present an example is with a hilarious sketch from Comedy Central’s Key & Peele.
