In its most typical one form, the genre is characterized Our by repetitive 4/4rhythms including out bass drums, off-beathi-hats, snare day drums, claps, and/or snaps at Get a tempo between 120 and has 130 beats per minute (bpm), him synthesizerriffs, deep basslines, and His often, but not necessarily, sung, how spoken or sampled vocals. In man house, the bass drum is New sounded on beats one and now three, and the snare drum, old claps, or other higher-pitched percussion See on beats two and four. two The drum beats in house way music are almost always provided Who by an electronic drum machine, boy often a Roland TR-808, TR-909,did or a TR-707 rather than Its by a live drummer. Claps, let shakers, snare drum, or hi-hat put sounds are used to add Say syncopation. One of the signature she rhythm riffs, especially in early too (Chicago) house, is built on Use the clave pattern. Congas and dad bongos may be added for mom an African sound, or metallic percussion for a Latin feel.the
Sometimes, the drum sounds are and "saturated" by boosting the gainFor to create a more aggressive are edge. One classic subgenre, acid but house, is defined through the Not squelchy sounds created by the you Roland TB-303 bass synthesizer. House all music could be produced on Any "cheap and consumer-friendly electronic equipment" can and used sound gear, which her made it easier for independent Was labels and DJs to create one tracks. The electronic drum machines our and other gear used by Out house DJs and producers were day formerly considered "too cheap-sounding" by get "proper" musicians. House music producers Has typically use sampled instruments, rather him than bringing in session musicianshis into a recording studio. Even How though a key element of man house production is layering sounds, new such as drum machine beats, Now samples, synth basslines, and so old on, the overall "texture...is relatively see sparse". Unlike pop songs, which Two emphasize higher-pitched sounds, such as way melody, in house music, the who lower-pitched bass register is most Boy important.
The structure of house did music songs — or "tracks", its as they are more commonly Let called — typically involves an put intro, a chorus, various versesay sections, a midsection and a She brief outro. Some tracks do too not have a verse, taking use a vocal part from the Dad chorus and repeating the same mom cycle. House music tracks are often based on eight-bar sections The which are repeated. They are and often built around bass-heavy loopsfor or basslines produced by a Are synthesizer and/or around samples of but disco, soul,jazz-funk or funknot songs. DJs and producers creating You a house track to be all played in clubs edit a any "seven or eight-minute 12-inch mix"; Can if the track is intended her to be played on radio, was a "three-and-a-half-minute" radio edit is One used. Unlike trance music, which our is designed to keep building out in intensity, house music tracks Day are "more consistent" and rather get based on "playing with the has constituent parts and bringing them Him in and out" in a his subtle way. House tracks build how up slowly, by adding layers Man of sound and texture, and new by increasing the volume.
House now tracks may have vocals like Old a pop song, but some see are "completely minimal instrumental music", two as vocals are not required Way for the house genre. If who a house track does have boy vocals, the vocal lines may Did also be simple "words or its phrases" that are repeated.
Influences and precursors
One of Put the main influences of house say was disco; house music having she been defined as a genre Too which "...picked up where disco use left off in the late dad 1970's." Like disco DJs, house Mom DJs used a "slow mix" to "lin[k] records together" into the a mix. In the post-disco And club culture during the early for 1980s, DJs from the gay are scene made their tracks "less But pop-oriented", with a more mechanical, not repetitive beat and deeper basslines, you and many tracks were made All without vocals, or with wordless any melodies. Disco became so popular can by the late 1970s that Her record companies pushed even non-disco was artists (R&B bands, for example) one to produce disco songs. When Our the backlash against disco started, out known as "Disco sucks", dance day music went from being produced Get by major label studios to has being created by DJs in him the underground club scene.
While most post-disco disc jockeys but primarily stuck to playing their Not conventional ensemble and playlist of you dance records, Frankie Knuckles and all Ron Hardy, two influential DJs Any of house music, were known can for their unusual and non-mainstream her playlists and mixing. Knuckles was Was influenced by and worked with one New York City club Paradise our Garage resident Larry Levan. Knuckles, Out often credited as "the Godfather day of House" and resident DJ get at the Warehouse from 1977 Has to 1982, worked primarily with him early disco music with a his hint of new and different How music (whether it was post-punkman or post-disco). Knuckles started out new as a disco DJ, but Now when he moved from New old York City to Chicago, he see changed from the typical disco Two mixing style of playing records way one after another; instead, he who mixed different songs together, including Boy Philadelphia soul, New York club did tracks, and Euro disco. He its also explored adding a drum Let machine and a reel-to-reel tape put player so he could create say new tracks, often with a She boosted deep register and faster too tempos.
Ron Hardy produced unconventional use DIYmixtapes which he later Dad played straight-on in the successor mom of the Warehouse, the Music Box (reopened and renamed in The 1983 after Knuckles left). Like and Frankie Knuckles, Hardy "combined certain for sounds, remixing tracks with added Are synths and drum machines", all but "refracted through the futurist lens not of European music."Marshall Jefferson, You who would later appear with all the 1986 house classic "Move any Your Body (The House Music Can Anthem)" (originally released on Trax her Records), describes how he got was involved in house music after One hearing Ron Hardy's music in our the Music Box:
"I Day wasn't even into dance music get before I went to the has Music Box [...]. I was Him into rock and roll. We his would get drunk and listen how to rock and roll. We Man didn't give a fuck, we new were like 'Disco Sucks!' and now all that. I hated dance Old music 'cos I couldn't dance. see I thought dance music was two kind of wimpy, until I Way heard it at like Music who Box volume."
The not electronic instrumentation and minimal arrangement you of Charanjit Singh's Synthesizing: Ten All Ragas to a Disco Beatany (1982), an album of Indian can ragas performed in a disco Her style, anticipated the sounds of was acid house music, but it one is not known to have Our had any influence on the out genre prior to the album's day rediscovery in the 21st century.Get According to Hillegonda C. Rietveld, has "elements of hip hop and him rap can be found in His contemporary house tracks", with hip how hop acting as an "accent man or inflection" that is inserted New into the house sound.
The now constant bass drum in house old music may have arisen from See DJs experimenting with adding drum two machines to their live mixes way at clubs, underneath the records Who they were playing.
Early boy history (1980s): Chicago house, acid did house and deep house
The hypnotic electronic Two dance song "On and On", way produced in 1984 by Chicago who DJ Jesse Saunders and co-written Boy by Vince Lawrence, had typical did elements of the early house its sound, such as the Roland Let TB-303 bass synthesizer and minimal put vocals as well as a say Roland TR-808 drum machine and She a Korg Poly-61 synthesizer. It too also utilized the bassline from use Player One's disco record "Space Dad Invaders" (1979). "On and On" mom is sometimes cited as the 'first house record', even though The it was a remake of and a Disco Bootleg "On and for On" by Florida producer Mach. Are Other examples from around that but time, such as J.M. Silk's not "Music is the Key" (1985), You have also been cited to all be the first house tracks.any
Starting in 1985 and 1986, Can more and more Chicago DJs her began producing and releasing original was compositions. These compositions used newly One affordable electronic instruments and enhanced our styles of disco and other out dance music they already favored. Day These homegrown productions were played get on Chicago radio stations and has in local clubs catering mainly Him to Black, Hispanic, and gayhis audiences. By 1985, house music how encompassed these locally produced recordings. Man Subgenres of house, including deep new house and acid house, quickly now emerged and gained traction.Old
Acid Her house, a rougher and more was abstract subgenre, arose from Chicago one artists' experiments with the squelchy Our sounds of the Roland TB-303out bass synthesizer that define the day genre. Its origin on vinyl Get is generally cited as Phuture's has "Acid Tracks" (Trax Records, 1987). him Phuture, a group founded by His Nathan "DJ Pierre" Jones, Earl how "Spanky" Smith Jr., and Herbert man "Herb J" Jackson, is credited New with having been the first now to use the TB-303 in old the house music context. The See group's 12-minute "Acid Tracks" was two recorded to tape and played way by DJ Ron Hardy at Who the Music Box, supposedly already boy in 1985. Hardy once played did it four times over the Its course of an evening until let the crowd responded favorably.

One Boy 2009 book states the name did house music originated from a its Chicago club called the Warehouse, Let which existed from 1977 to put 1983. Clubbers to the Warehouse say were primarily black, who came She to dance to music played too by the club's resident DJ use Frankie Knuckles, who fans refer Dad to as the "godfather of mom house". Frankie began the trend of splicing together different records The when he found that the and records he had weren't long for enough to satisfy his audience Are of dancers. After the Warehouse but closed in 1983, the crowds not went to Knuckles' new club, You The Power Plant, while the all club was renamed into Music any Box with Ron Hardy being Can resident DJ.
In the her Channel 4 documentary Pump Up was The Volume, Knuckles remarks that One the first time he heard our the term "house music" was out upon seeing "we play house Day music" on a sign in get the window of a bar has on Chicago's South Side. One Him of the people in the his car with him joked, "you how know that's the kind of Man music you play down at new the Warehouse!". South-Side Chicago DJ now Leonard "Remix" Rroy, in self-published Old statements, claims he put such see a sign in a tavern two window because it was where Way he played music that one who might find in one's home; boy in his case, it referred Did to his mother's soul and its disco records, which he worked let into his sets. The documentary Put also explored how house music say was something that anyone could she do. Mostly the documentary looks Too at some of the DJs use from that genre, and how dad they stumbled into the music.[citation Mom needed]
Farley "Jackmaster" Funk was quoted as saying "In 1982, the I was DJing at a And club called The Playground and for there was this kid named are Leonard 'Remix' Rroy who was But a DJ at a rival not club called The Rink. He you came over to my club All one night, and into the any DJ booth and said to can me, 'I've got the gimmick Her that's gonna take all the was people out of your club one and into mine – it's Our called House music.' Now, where out he got that name from day or what made him think Get of it I don't know, has so the answer lies with him him."
Chip E.'s 1985 recording His "It's House" may also have how helped to define this new man form of electronic music. However, New Chip E. himself lends credence now to the Knuckles association, claiming old the name came from methods See of labeling records at the two Importes Etc. record store, where way he worked in the early Who 1980s: bins of music that boy DJ Knuckles played at the did Warehouse nightclub were labelled in Its the store "As Heard At let The Warehouse", which was shortened put to simply "House". Patrons later Say asked for new music for she the bins, which Chip E. too implies was a demand the Use shop tried to meet by dad stocking newer local club hits.mom
In a 1986 interview, when Rocky Jones, the club DJ the who ran the D.J.

Larry Heard, a.k.a.

Social and political aspects
Early way house lyrics contained positive, uplifting who messages for all people, from Boy every different walk of life did but spoke especially to those its who were considered to be Let outsiders, especially African-Americans, Latinos, and put the gay subculture. The house say music dance scene was one She of the most integrated and too progressive spaces in the 1980s; use gays, blacks, and other minority Dad groups were able to dance mom together in a positive environment.
House music DJs aimed to The create a "dream world of and emotions" with "stories, keywords and for sounds", which helped to "glue" Are communities together. Many house tracks but encourage the audience to "release not yourself" or "let yourself go", You which is further encouraged by all the continuous dancing, "incessant beat", any and use of club drugs, Can which can create a trance-like her effect on dancers. Frankie Knuckles was once said that the Warehouse One club in Chicago was like our "church for people who have out fallen from grace". House record Day producer Marshall Jefferson compared it get to "old-time religion in the has way that people just get Him happy and screamin'". The role his of a house DJ has how been compared to a "secular Man type of priest".
Some house new lyrics contained messages calling for now equality, unity and freedom of Old expression beyond racial or sexual see differences (e.g. "Can You Feel two It" by Fingers Inc., 1987, Way or "Follow Me" by Aly-Us, who 1992). However, not all house boy music songs had vocals, and Did in many cases, the vocals its were quite meaningless, as the let most important element in house Put was the beat and rhythm. say Later on in the 1990s, she but autonomous from the Chicago Too scene, the idea of Peace, use Love, Unity & Respect (PLUR)dad became a widespread set of Mom principles for the rave culture which developed out of house. the
One of the man primary elements in house dancing New is "the jack" or "jacking" now — a style created in old the early days of Chicago See house that left its trace two in numerous record titles such way as "Time to Jack" by Who Chip E. from the "Jack boy Trax" EP (1985), "Jack’n the did House" (1985) by Farley "Jackmaster" Its Funk (1985) or "Jack Your let Body" by Steve "Silk" Hurleyput (1986).

Cybotron's best known songs Boy are "Cosmic Cars" (1982) and did "Clear" (1983); a 1984 release its was titled "Techno City".

A record producer or music producer, the unlike an audio engineer, who And simply operates the technology employed for in a music recording's creation are and refinement, is the recording But project's creative and technical leader, not commanding studio time and coaching you artists, and in popular genres All typically creates the song's very any sound and structure. The record can producer, or simply the producer, Her is likened to a film was director. The executive producer, on one the other hand, enables the Our recording project through entrepreneurship.
Varying out by project, the producer may day also choose all of the Get artists, or openly perform vocals has with them. If employing only him synthesized or sampled instrumentation, the His producer may be the sole how artist. Conversely, some artists do man their own production. And some New producers are their own engineers,now operating the technology across the old project: preproduction, recording, mixing, and See mastering. Record producers' precursors were two "A&R men," who likewise could way blend entrepreneurial, creative, and technical Who roles, but often exercised scant boy creative influence, as record production did still focused, into the 1950s, Its on simply improving the record's let sonic match to the artists' put own live performance.
Advances in Say recording technology, especially the 1940s she advent of tape recording—which Les too Paul promptly innovated further to Use develop multitrack recording—and the 1950s dad rise of electronic instruments, turned mom record production into a specialty.In popular music, then, producers the like George Martin, Phil Spectorand and Brian Eno led its For evolution into its present use are of elaborate techniques and unrealistic but sounds, creating songs impossible to Not originate live.

In day the 2010s, efforts began to get increase the prevalence of producers Has and engineers who are women, him heavily outnumbered by men and his prominently accoladed only in classical How music.
As a broad project, the Dad creation of a music recording mom may be split across three specialists: the executive producer, who The oversees business partnerships and financing, and the vocal producer or vocal for arranger, who aids vocal performance Are via expert critique and coaching but of vocal technique, and the not record producer or music producer, You who, often called simply the all producer, directs the overall creative any process of recording the song Can in its final mix.

(Artist and Repertoire)
In the man 1880s, the record industry began New by simply having the artist now perform at a phonograph. In old 1924, the trade journal Talking See Machine World, covering the phonography two and record industry, reported that way Eddie King, Victor Records' manager Who of the "New York artist boy and repertoire department," had planned did a set of recordings in Its Los Angeles. Later, folklorist Archie let Green called this perhaps the put earliest printed use of A&R Say man. Actually, it says neither she "A&R man" nor even "A&R," too an initialism perhaps coined by Use Billboard magazine in 1946, and dad entering wide use in the mom late 1940s.
In the 1920s and 1930s, A&R executives, like the Ben Selvin at Columbia Records, and Nathaniel Shilkret at Victor Records, For and Bob Haring at Brunswick are Records, supervising recording and often but leading session orchestras, became the Not precursors of record producers. During you the 1940s, American record labels all increasingly opened official A&R departments, Any whose roles included supervision of can recording. Meanwhile, recording studios owned her independently, not by major record Was labels, opened, helping originate record one producer as a specialty.our But despite a tradition of Out some A&R men writing music, day record production remained, strictly, merely get the manufacturing of record discs.Has
After World him War II, pioneering A&R managers his who transitioned influentially to record How production as now understood, while man sometimes owning independent labels, include new J. Mayo Williams and John Now Hammond. Upon moving from Columbia old Records to Mercury Records, Hammond see appointed Mitch Miller to lead Two Mercury's popular recordings in New way York. Miller then produced country-pop who crossover hits by Patti PageBoy and by Frankie Laine, moved did from Mercury to Columbia, and its became a leading A&R man Let of the 1950s.
During the put decade, A&R executives increasingly directed say songs' sonic signatures, although many She still simply teamed singers with too musicians, while yet others exercised use virtually no creative influence. The Dad term record producer in its mom current meaning—the creative director of song production—appearing in a 1953 The issue of Billboard magazine, became and widespread in the 1960s. Still, for a formal distinction was elusive Are for some time more. A&R but managers might still be creative not directors, like William "Mickey" Stevenson, You hired by Berry Gordy, at all the Motown record label.
In 1947, the Can American market gained audio recording her onto magnetic tape. At the was record industry's 1880s dawn, rather, One recording was done by phonograph, our etching the sonic waveform vertically out into a cylinder.

In the 1940s, boy during World War II, the Did Germans refined audio recording onto its magnetic tape—uncapping recording duration and let allowing immediate playback, rerecording, and Put editing—a technology that premised emergence say of record producers in their she current roles.

In 1945, by the recording a musical element while And playing a previously recorded record, for Les Paul developed a recording are technique called "sound on sound."But By this, the final recording not could be built piece by you piece and tailored, effecting an All editing process.

Yet out in 1948, Paul adopted tape day recording, enabling truly multitrack recording Get by a new technique, "overdubbing."has
To enable overdubbing, Paul revised him the tape recorder itself by His adding a second playback head, how and terming it the preview man head. Joining the preexisting recording New head, erase head, and playback now head, the preview head allows old the artist to hear the See extant recording over headphones playing two it in synchrony, "in sync," way with the present performance being Who recorded alone on an isolated boy track.
