Miami is the undisputed world heavyweight champion of bass, and the globe's leading progenitor of trunk rattle, rear-view shake, and total body thump.
The genre is a direct descendent of Pretty Tony's freestyle productions, and Henry Stone's earlier indie R&B Pop. It's the single hardest electronic boom in the universe, and proud of it.
Joe Stone, son of kingpin Henry, helped bring that hard-knock Miami bass baby into the world. And alongside a talented bevvy of behind-the-scenes players from Orlando to the MIA, he was there turning knobs and flipping switches to drop the first extended 808 kick that set it all off.
