Different techniques in different pop genres?

Hey John, just wondering if there's any things you always do differently for eg a song with a hip-hop lead production (808s etc) against a four-on-the-floor pop-dance kinda track? In terms of overall approach, workflow or strategy.

Thanks!

No different work flow or strategies I think. These things kind of become rote after a while, so I really have to question myself "am I doing anything different"?

I guess one thing would be not worrying so much about clean production and vocals. I think that part of the production and sound of the genre is some built-in dirt and grunge. Vocals can be mumbly and some noises can be left in; that becomes part of the performance. I'm not going to be cleaning up a lot of headphone bleed, mouth noises, etc on a Hip-Hop track.
