... ou beats "four on the floor"

Le "four to the floor" est un rythme 4/4 typique de la house/garage.

Là où d’ordinaire seuls les beats "four-to-the-floor" trouvent leur voie dans le jeu des DJ (...)

Cf. Wikipedia :
"Four to the floor or four-on-the-floor is a type of dance music characterized by a steady, uniformly accented beat in 4/4 time, popularized in 1960s, and disco music of 1970s. It is also known in country music.

Examples of this music type are disco, house, techno and trance.

This steady beat is usually maintained by the kick drum (bass drum).

When a string instrument makes the rhythm (rhythm guitar, banjo), all four beats of the measure are played by identical downstrokes."

"DIS-MOI COMMENT TU DANSES…
Regardez comment vous entrez sur la piste d’un club. Vous commencez à danser, beat martial, métronomique, le fameux « four on the floor » disco. Boum-boum-boum-boum. Le bassin ondule sur le rythme, une moue boudeuse se fixe sur le visage."

"... le kick de percussion, le «boom-boom-boom » martelé de la pulsation soumis à la stricte mesure du 4/4 (le four-on-the-floor caractéristique de la techno)."

"Les séduisantes Neve Campbell et Salma Hayek tirent finement leur épingle de ces jeux interdits commandés par le sexe, les drogues et le fameux beat "four on the floor" qu'abhorrent les rockers."
