Boom bap refers to a subgenre of hip-hop music. The name can be traced back to the KRS-One record Return of the Boom Bap from 1993. Boom bap experienced its heyday in the 1980s and 1990s in the USA and is musically very different from today’s commercially successful hip-hop productions. Today, boom bap is largely released by niche artists and labels and rarely reaches the general public. Well-known artists of the subgenre are e.g. SSIO, EPMD or Del Tha Funkee Homosapien.
Boom bap describes certain production techniques rather than rap itself. It is often characterized by a hard kick (bass drum) followed by a high snare drum. Hence the name boom bap, which is onomatopoeic for this type of drumming. Traditionally, samplers are used and different styles of music from records, for example, are sampled and recombined. The use of digital synthesizers, as is now widespread in hip-hop, is largely dispensed with.
Meanwhile there are now many producers around the world who offer free boom bap beats for non-profit use. These free beats are a good option for beginners. On the other hand it is common for serious artists to buy boom bap beats online for-profit use. With the purchase of leasing rights or exclusive rights, it is possible to acquire commercial rights for boom bap beats in order to use them commercially.
To put it differently, with the purchase of a license you can sell your songs online and offline. Furthermore, you can distribute your songs on all online portals such as Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube, iTunes, Pandora, Deezer etc.
