Electro

Arguably one of the oldest forms of electronic, Electro has been around since the 1980’s. Electro drum patterns tend to be electronic emulations of breakbeats, with a syncopated kick drum, and usually a snare or clap accenting the downbeat. The difference between electro drumbeats and breakbeats (or breaks) is that electro tends to be more mechanical, while breakbeats tend to have more of a human-like feel, like that of a live drummer.

A good example of how to make electro is found here:

Remember that the most important thing is to make a beat that people will want to dance to.
