Tracks commonly consist of only a 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. There is some debate over the true origin of Snap, with rap outfits Dem Franchize Boyz, K-Rab, D4L, and producer Mr. Collipark, claiming to be the creators.
