    Default Genres of music at 120 bpm

    Hey everyone,


    It seems that alot of people around here really like 120 bpms. I'm new to this genre stuff so I was wondering if theres a specfic genre that defines music at 120 bpms. Scattered tune is all I can find. Can yeah turn on a few lights for me or what?

    techno, tech-house, and minimal are the most likely canidate. mostly in the mid-120s though (124-128)

    i find quite a bit of nu-disco in the 120 range too too...mainly 110 - 120.

    when i was 20 i used to think 120 was soooo slow and never went below 125. now i'm 28 i think very differently

    You get quite a lot of broken beat and funky breaks around this speed too. And nu-disco.

    im just waiting for him to post a picture of deadmau5 having a love affair with a dolphin inside a roadside texas bbq shack while senior citizens dance in the background in front of a flaming unicorn licking a chihuahua dressed as a fire fighter.
