House

House is a style of electronic music that originated in Chicago in the 1980th. It is believed that the House style got its name from the club “Warehouse” in Chicago, where one popular DJ Frankie Knuckles played his new music — a combination of traditional Disco and European synthpop, mixed with his own rhythms by drum-machine Ronald 909. In the middle 1980th this genre became quite popular in Europe: people listened to it, performed it and danced to it. Later on it became popular in South and North America and in Australia. In the era of total domination of Disco some people believed that this new music genre House was very stylish and pretentious. Unlike the style of Disco, House was simplified genre with the common time “to four”. The rhythm became more mechanical and sometimes the elements of vocal and instrumental accompaniment were added.

The birth of the House genre was marked by such songs as ‘Pump Up the Volume’, ‘Theme from S’Express’, ‘House Nation’, ‘Doctorin’ the House’ and many others. After being top genre in the European pop-charts, House was divided into several subgenres:

  • Hip-house;
  • Deep-house (combined some elements of chill-out, ambient and jazz);
  • Tech-house (mix of house music and techno style);
  • Ambient house;
  • Acid house (bass-generator is used);
  • Soulful house (implies the use of “live” instruments and improvisation);
  • Progressive house (having originated in the early 90th it renewed this style of music) etc.
  • Today House is a perfect style for any club or atmosphere. Although we can state that this style gave rise to electronic music, yet still it is full of elements of other genre — Soul of the 70th and the style of dance music Disco.

    Prominent representatives of this genre are:

  • Jesse Saunders;
  • Herb JacksonEarl «Spanky» Smith;
  • Larry Heard;
  • Marshall Jefferson;
  • DJ Pierre;
  • Moodyman and many others.
  • There are over 30 directions of this genre in the world and that is why everyone can find his or her own style of House music.
