Electro-Hop is a sub-genre of hip-hop that combines elements of electro, electronica, and rap music. Even though hip-hop stays predominant in the genre, it can be told apart from regular hip-hop by the heavy use of bass and synthesizers. Electro-Hop has roots that go back to the 1980s when vocoders, mouth boxes, and 808 machines were revolutionizing the early sound of hip-hop. The music worked well for breaking and for parties, but was surpassed by g-funk and gangsta rap as the primary sound of hip-hop around 1990.
