Subject: '80s Drums vs. '90s Drums

Written By: Donnie Darko on 06/05/06 at 12:08 am

Would anyone say the main difference between '80s pop and '90s pop is the drums?  The synths of '80s and '90s pop are actually pretty similar, but around 1992 the "new wave" reverberating drum style was replaced with the "tick-tock" '90s/'00s drum sequencing.

I just noticed many 80s groups (excluding rock bands, of course) used drum machines/synths for their beats, whereas there was a return to conventional drum-kits after grunge. Is this largely the case?

I remember those electronic drums that were hexagonal in shape and produced different sounds. They died out in the late '80s for some reason.

actually Priest fell victim to the drum machine idea, unfortunately Stock AItken and Waterman would produce Turbo and the drum machine would appear again on Ram It Down, RID would have been a good albumn had it not been for some overproducing.
