Snap music is a type of music that emerged from Atlanta, Georgia. The subgenre of music soon became popular and artists from other southern states began to emerge. Tracks commonly consist of only an 808 (bass or kick drum), hi-hat, bass, snapping, a main groove, and a vocal track. Invented for use at nightclubs, it is unusually languid for normal dance music, with a slow tempo.
