    Default Music Pioneered In The 2010's?

    I'm looking for genres/sub-genres that have been pioneered in the 2010's.

    So far I've got:

    - Deep Tech

    - Jackin House

    - Brostep

    - Chicago Bop

    - Gqom

    - Moombathon

    - Trap

    - To an extent American's rapping over 'nuum/UK Bass (Azealia Banks, etc.) offers something a little different

    - Nu-grime/art-grime/industrial grime

    - Ratchet

    - Drumstep

    - Zouk


    Other older stuff has been popularised beyond its initial geography:

    - Footwork

    - Jersey/Philly Club

    - Azonto/Naija

    - Kuduro


    Anything else?

    Which one seems to be the biggest paradigm shift?

    Ballroom got popularized in the last 5 years, uhm... I'd say Witchhouse, as silly as it was, did happen in 09-11 so hey.

    5 years ago is creeping my out by how far away it all seems. I guess you're missing Drill which blew up for all of about six months but that can come under Trap

    presumably he means trap in the EDM sense not the rap sense?

    Hadn't come across Witchhouse before. Interestingly it draws from chopped & screwed and industrial like a lot of hip hop from the last 5 years. Similarly there's the industrial grime of the last few years (though the sound has precedent in Milanese, so can't really say that's this decade's innovation).

    Knackered House. Another DJ Screw influenced sound.

    A similar thing here with slowed down Ballroom:

    For lack of a better description: Night slugs house (probably close to ballroom, sonically at least). Also that Mexican (Monterrey) tribal house blew up that year. Didn't last long, though.

    Sea punk & vaporwave. Two more chopped and screwed influenced genres.

    shittest decade ever?

    tough to make the call if youre looking strictly at the 2010s but i think afrobeats is the 'newest' thing around.

    not really a genre, exactly, but i think rustie was making stuff that you couldnt easily say was something older. and it was lots of fun too. hud mo too, even if i hate a lot of his music.

    This whole search for a brand new sound is a bit of a dead end IMO, better to look at how a genre like rap is developing and mutating beyond what people could conceive it could be fifteen years ago. Obviously a lot of people HATE what its become, but the same is true of jungle, grime, etc.

    I wonder if a paradigm shift such as Reynolds longs for would be better sought in vocals than rhythms (talking dance music here) - perhaps that's nonsense but if you look at rap music and the use of auto tune this is where the genuinely mindbending and alien shifts are happening. And dance music, by and large, lacks vocals, and therefore lacks e.g. political depth. Which I'm sure Reynolds argues is what makes it more revolutionary in an anti rockist sense but I wonder if purely instrumental music has become by this stage fairly arid creatively.
