Big Beat

"Big Beat" is a hybrid of sounds from the break-beat genre. Also borrows quite a lot from hip-hop and jazz.

Popularized by groups like the Chemical Brothers and Prodigy, Big Beat features distorted, compressed breakbeats at dance tempos (120-140), acidic synth lines and heavy jazz loops. Often punctuated with punkish-style vocals and driven by intense, distorted basslines, songs typically use pop and techno structures.

It is also a recording company with such names as the Baja Men[?].
