Hip Hop as a music trend has its roots in the 70’s in funk and soul music. A stylistic particularity is the speech song, the use of samples, including the so called scratch. The social-cultural origins of hip hop are the Afro-American ghettos (residential areas with a majority of Afro-Americans).
The musical developmental fate is usually from a so called beat or loop In this case, a record player is used to play repeatedly a passage from a music piece from funk, soul, or disco genres or other beats assembled together. Rhythmic speaking/singing (rap) takes place during the repetition.
The band Rapper’s Delight at the end of the 70’s was the first constituted of its kind that was able to achieve commercial success with hip hop and rap. The band Kraftwerk created the first hip hop piece produced with synthesizers with the title Trans Europa Express. At the end of the 80s many hip hop artists/bands began to mix hip hop with heavy metal or baroque/classic.

The rhythm of the streets
A simple basic theme, rocking and clear
A comfortable Production Music track for a wide spectrum of uses. Static and moving at the same time.
Pleasant corporate sound somewhere between Disco, Funk and Hip-Hop. Very versatile. Ideal as background.
Mid-tempo hip-hop, urban, with some slightly Turkish, Indian or Eastern sounding orchestra riffs.
Midnight Chill, subtle Groove, intelligent riffs with a subtle tension
Futuristic downtempo/triphop with atmospheric sound effects and thoughtful piano melodies. A powerful string bass and a strong drum loop build the massive foundation
Modern RnB track with human beat box, big bass drum, claps, powerful bass, lots of FX-synths and gated pads. Sounds futuristic and electronic.
Sitting in a bar relaxed and easy while watching the hustle and bustle around you. You´re not involved, staying in a pleasant distance.
Old School instruments, from Moog to the beat everything is retro
Cool retro vibe with catchy Brass riff, funky guitars, stabby jazz piano and bongo percussion.
The DJ work himself of at the turntables., with sound system in action.
In the first two minutes rather idiosyncratic and dazing, then Easy-Flair comes with the swing-beat, but remains true to its originality, something special
Slightly dark track with a melancholic mood, reminds of cold, rainy nights in the streets of a big city
Urban style track with sexy percussive loops & deep bass. Anchored firmly on the streets of LA, an overlaid guitar riff and tablas give it a slight Eastern feel. Similar in style to Snoop Dogg & Dr Dre.
Smooth and slick electro beats. With its funky bass line, atmospheric sweeps, and chillout-style drums, this track is both calming and refreshing, both chilled and invigorating at the same time, conveying a "free spirit" type chill, highly suitable for any footage depicting skydiving, surfing, snowboarding or just relaxing, chilling out on the beach, travel, holiday and vacation, fun in the sun, etc.
slow intro up to min 01:15, then somehow it becomes an Austrian Rap show, very easy and relaxed, with vocal fills
A smart background for Karaoke-Rapping
Gritty and funky hip-hop. Fat, slamming beats. Mangled sound, a little bit on the edge. Scratching and synth bass.
Crisp but warm, slow but uplifting, soothing but fresh, this track sits somewhere between pop, chillout, R&B and smooth jazz. A wonderfully melodic track with immediate appeal.
