The Quickest & Easiest Way To HYPERPOP

Hyperpop is a loosely defined term and sub-genre characterized by an exaggerated or maximalist take on various popular music genres. Artists tagged with this label tend to incorporate excessive pop elements and other contemporary or avant-garde senses, drawing on cues from hip-hop, electronic, and dance music genres. One of the most noticeable characteristics of an act sporting this label is the obvious presence of numerous famous, popular pop songs in the song list. Some artists who fit this bill are The Killers, Blondie, and Akon. Pop music has long since served as the benchmark for modern music, but as new musical trends arise, artists who stray from the mainstream are often shunned by their contemporaries.

 

In contrast, hyperpop showcases a variety of sounds that may be more traditional than pop. It is an unpredictable genre with a strong sense of originality and non-conformity. It frequently borrows from established musical aesthetics, but often disregards some of the conventions of this genre. Popular styles seen in modern pop songs may be hyperlinked to this style.

 

One of the commonalities seen in artists who fit the bill of this sub-genre is their prolific output. Many of them have released multiple singles and albums in the past few years. There is also a proliferation of new artists whose work tends to take cues from elements present in hyperpop. As a result, the music industry has been buzzing with activity and buzz about this new style of music since the 2010s.

 

What separates this genre from its alternative counterpart? While the latter generally plays on traditional pop songs with a modern spin, hyperpop defies categorization. While radio stations commonly play popular hits during the morning hours, it is rare to find many music channels dedicated to playing non-traditional pop music during the day. The genre is characterized by high levels of playability, as well as by the sheer volume of songs featured on radio playlists.

 

When it comes to sound, there are some noticeable distinctions between hyperpop and rap. For one thing, rap features a wide range of voices, most notably that of the rappers themselves. Hyperpop, however, tends to lean towards a singular register (or two) of vocal registers. Songs are often played at a slower speed and are less experimental than their rap counterparts. Hyperpop can also easily draw from other genres, lending itself to the mixing of more traditional pop songs and ballads with elements of rap.

 

One of the hallmarks of the genre is the use of social media. Most modern pop stars have at least a few social media accounts, where they can freely express themselves in a variety of vocal registers. Hyperpop artists also frequently get to flex their creative muscles via their MySpace and Facebook accounts. Many of the biggest pop stars of modern times have at one point or another gone on record with a song dedicated to their social media fan base. This has led to a rise in the number of people actively listening to the genre on social media.

 

Another distinctive element of this style of music is the inclusion of PC Music, which stands for “Polyphonic Multi Track Format.” PC Music is like a large compilation CD of tracks, and is used extensively as the default music for many hyperpop artists’ albums. PC Music tracks tend to be much faster and upbeat than regular hip hop or house music tracks. A major appeal of PC Music is that it is available in a wide range of formats, including digital audio Workstations and MP3s.

 

While it may not be the kind of music you would typically hear at a club or at an outdoor gathering, it certainly has enough crossover appeal to successfully hit the mainstream. Of course, a lot of this genre’s popularity can be attributed to the fact that it is made by young, up-and-coming hip hop and house producers, and that a lot of these artists are actually teenagers. This makes the music sound almost as fresh and unique as it is enticing to those who love it. Many believe that the rise of the hyperpop genre in recent years is only going to continue as more young rappers, musicians, and producers get involved.
