I was tracing the origin of the whole staccato, one-note drop thing made famous about 5 years ago. My first exposure was the 2008 compilation ‘Go Dutch!’ done by Bart B More whose tracks were using a synthier tone for the one-note drops and that buzzy whistle melodically. Then in April of 2009, Afrojack’s ‘Polkadots’ hit which used the sound made by the percussion as the staccato drop and later on, the buzzy whistle became the world famous de facto drop, which everyone has tired of over the years.

Including Bro culture, which apparently wrote it off two years ago. In researching, I stumbled upon this site, whose logo is hard enough to stomach but whose author (a certified Bro, it seems) has an interesting point of view…

Chicago veteran Steve Poindexter is probably best-known for ‘Work That Motherfucker’ but the real gem on that EP was ‘Computer Madness’. Steve riffs on why that raw basement sound still rules the day

Obviously well-written piece about another side of club culture

New single out now. New album next week. This track hits in all the good spots but could be faster, imo.  Welp, that’s what Key/Adj. is for. And remixes…
