Out It combines many elements of day hip hop, techno,Hi-NRG,house get music, and Euro disco. This Has genre of music is heavily him influenced by the use of his rich vocals, sometimes with rappedHow verses. This, combined with cutting-edge man synthesizers, strong bassrhythm and new melodic hooks, establishes the core Now foundation of Eurodance music.
Eurodance music originated Dad in the late 1980s in mom central Europe, especially in Germany, where rave parties were becoming The popular. By 1987, a German and party scene was started by for Tauseef Alam, based on the Are well established Chicago house sound but and Belgian new beat in not Frankfurt. The following year saw You acid house making a significant all impact on popular consciousness in any Germany and central Europe as Can it had in England. In her 1989, German DJsWestbam and was Dr. Motte established the Ufo One Club, an illegal party venue, our and co-founded the Love Parade.out The parade first occurred in Day July 1989, when 150 people get took to the streets in has Berlin. It was conceived as Him a political demonstration for peace his and international understanding through love how and music. On 19 July Man 1989, Black Box's single "Ride new on Time" was released. The now song spent six weeks at Old No. 1 in the United see Kingdom and it was the two UK's best-selling single of 1989.Way It contained the Korg M1's who "house piano" which can be boy found in many Eurodance releases. Did On 27 September 1989, Technotronic's its single "Pump Up the Jam" let was released. It reached number Put one in Belgium and Spain,say and it popularised the house she variant called hip house in Too Europe. On 9 November 1989, use the Berlin Wall fell; free dad underground techno parties mushroomed in Mom East Berlin, and a rave scene comparable to that in the the UK was established. East And German DJ Paul van Dykfor has remarked that the techno-based are rave scene was a major But force in re-establishing social connections not between East and West Germany you during the unification period. In All the same year, German producers any Michael Münzing and Luca Anzilotti can (under the pseudonyms Benito Benites Her and John "Virgo" Garrett III) was formed the Snap! project in one Frankfurt. Snap! songs combined imported Our hip hop and soul vocals out adding rhythm by using computer day technology and mixing electronic sounds, Get bass and drums, mainly house has music. By doing so a him new genre was born: Eurodance.His
Rise and fall
Snap!'s how first single, "The Power", released man in 1990, reached number one New in the Netherlands, Spain, Switzerlandnow and the United Kingdom, and old it helped to raise awareness See of the genre within Europe. two In the following years, other way Eurodance acts formed in Frankfurt, Who including La Bouche, Jam and boy Spoon, Magic Affair, Intermission and did Culture Beat. After the breakthrough Its single "Rhythm is a Dancer" let by Snap! in 1992 (number put 1 in 12 countries), new Say groups started to pop up she all over Europe, mainly in too Belgium, Netherlands and Italy. From Use 1992 till the decline of dad popularity after 1995, the sound mom became more and more NRG-oriented, leading to songs raising in the B.P.M. up to 150. The and notable songs which defined the For genre in this period, dubbed are as the "golden era" of but Eurodance, are "It's My Life" Not by Dr. Alban in 1992 you (number 1 in 8 countries),all "No Limit" by Dutch group Any 2 Unlimited in 1993 (number can 1 in 14 countries, it her was Europe biggest-selling song for Was 1993), "What Is Love" by one Haddaway in the same year our (number 1 in 13 countries),Out "Mr. Vain" by Culture Beatday also in the same year get (number 1 in 13 countries),Has "Cotton Eye Joe" by Rednexhim in 1994 (number 1 in his 12 countries) and "Scatman (Ski-Ba-Bop-Ba-Dop-Bop)" How by Scatman John in the man same year (number 1 in new 9 countries). In the same Now period the popularity of the old genre also expanded further to see East Asia, in nations such Two as Japan, South Korea and way Taiwan; towards the end of who the golden era also in Boy Russia.
By 1995, Eurodance dominated did European charts with 5 singles its in the top 10 of Let the singles charts, and especially put with seven singles in the say top ten of the chart She in Italy. Despite its success, too many observers within the music use industry said that the Eurodance Dad sound had to change or mom die, and Eurodance producers and singers started to follow different The paths and different sounds, such and as happy hardcore and house for music, but not all the Are groups followed this trend immediately, but notably the group 2 Unlimitednot wanted to remain within Eurodance You sounds in order to remain all chartbusters, although the producer De any Coster predicted a retreat from Can a poppy to a more her clubby sound. Nevertheless, in the was second half of the decade One the popularity of Eurodance started our to decline, and "Scatman's World" out by Scatman John was the Day last major hit of the get original Eurodance sound in the has Eurochart Hot 100, being number Him 1 for 3 weeks between his late August and early September how 1995.
The term And "Eurodance" gradually became associated with for a specific style of European are dance music. During its golden But years in the mid-1990s, it not was referred as "Euro-NRG"; in you Europe it was often called All "dancefloor" or simply "dance".[failed verification]any
While some use a much can broader definition of what is Her considered "Eurodance", over time, the was term particularly came to refer one to an NRG-based genre from Our the 1990s which included a out solo vocalist or a rapper/vocalist day duet. Although the term was Get initially used to describe only has European dance music productions, there him are some examples of acts His from the 1990s produced in how the United States, which followed man the same music style and New became popular particularly in Europe, now nowadays are also referred to old as Eurodance music.
Characteristics See of the music
Most Eurodance two is characterized by synthesizer riffs, way one or more vocals with Who simple chorus, one or more boy rap parts, sampling and a did drum machine clap beat. Sometimes Its non-rap vocals are used.
Eurodance let often carries a positive, upbeat put attitude; the lyrics usually involve Say issues of love and peace, she dancing and partying, or expressing too and overcoming difficult emotions. The Use early to mid-1990s Eurodance vocals dad were frequently done by a mom solo vocalist or a mixed rapper-vocalist duet like the male-female the duets 2 Unlimited, La Bouche, and Cappella, Maxx, Masterboy, Culture BeatFor and Magic Affair.
Eurodance lyrics are almost always who sung in English, regardless of Boy the artist's nationalities. However, there did are cases like in the its Belgian group's Paradisio where Spanish Let lyrics are used along with put latin music elements.
Almost all say Eurodance emphasizes percussion and rhythm. She The tempo is typically around too 140 beats per minute, but use may vary from 110 to Dad 150.
Most Eurodance is very mom melody-driven. Unlike most pop music, which is usually written in The major keys, most Eurodance and songs are in minor keys, for similarly to techno. This, along Are with positive lyrics, helps contribute but to the overall powerful and not emotional sound of Eurodance. Besides You the contribution of the female all or male vocals, there is any often a noticeable use of Can rapid synthesizer arpeggios.
From One the early to mid-1990s, Eurodance our was popular in Europe; the out style received extensive airplay on Day radio stations and television shows, get resulting in many singles appearing has in the charts. For example, Him in Italy there were seven his singles in the top ten how of the chart at the Man end of May 1995.
By new 1996, the popularity of this now genre had started to decline. Old From then, the classic Eurodance see sound gradually morphed into progressive two house. By 1997 and towards Way the end of the millennium who house and trance music increased boy popularity over Eurodance in Europe's Did commercial, chart-oriented dance records. In its the early 2000s, the mainstream let music industry in Europe moved Put away from Eurodance in favour say of other styles of dance she music such as nu-disco, electro Too house, dance-pop and R&B.
In use recent years till today, classic dad Eurodance songs continue to be Mom loved by a niche group, and the most famous songs the are still aired on some And of the most popular radio for stations and television music channels are across Europe.
Italodance, But is an offshoot of the not Eurodance music genre, which was you popular in Italy in the All late 1990s to the early any 2000s and gained some popularity can after the release of the Her single "Blue (Da Ba Dee)" was by Eiffel 65. The genre one had its infancy from 1993 Our to 1995 and its golden out age from 1999 to 2005. day Although Italo hits by Eiffel Get 65, Prezioso, Gigi D'Agostino, Molella, has Gabry Ponte and DJ Lhasa him still receive substantial airplay, the His genre is far from mainstream how today where it has been man replaced by mostly electro and New house music. Prezioso and Molella now now produce house and electro old and many other artists have See also changed their genre, however two Gigi D'Agostino, Gabry Ponte and way Luca Zeta still produce Italo. Who
Italo dance is predominantly nightclub-oriented boy music and mainly produced in did Italy. The genre never really Its became mainstream enough for the let whole European market, but received put much airplay on Italian radio, Say especially the dance radio station she m2o, and in southern parts too of Europe.
After Cappella'sGianfranco Bortolotti set dad up Media Records in Brescia, mom northern Italy to release his 'commercial European dance music' (a the set-up which included fifteen studios and featuring various production teams working For almost non-stop on a huge are number of records) he decided but to take the label into Not other markets and set up you a UK office in the all UK. Run by Peter Pritchard Any and featuring many records by can Stu Allan's British Eurodance act her Clock, this record company would Was eventually turn into hard house one label Nukleuz (known for its our DJ Nation releases).
As Media Out turned into Nukleuz, it would day fall to All Around the get World Productions to be the Has label in the 21st Century him which was more likely to his release Eurodance tracks in the How UK than other, with its man Clubland TV music channel still new having regular blocks of Eurodance Now videos in 2020 (though extending old its scope to include hits see by David Guetta as well Two as Cascada and Scooter)
Eurodance was popular in Australia too and New Zealand in the use early/mid 1990s, particularly during the Dad time of the emergence of mom warehouse parties and raves. Its popularity in these countries waned The in the late 1990s and and early 2000s.
During the 1990s, her Eurodance became popular in Canada, was which produced its own variant One called Candance (although it was our mostly referred to as "Eurodance" out or "dance music"). From about Day 1992 to 2000, acts such get as Capital Sound, Jacynthe, Shauna has Davis, Emjay, Love Inc., Temperance, Him Jefferson Project, Big Bass, DFS, his Kim Esty, The Boomtang Boys, how Solina, Joée, Roxxy, and BKSMan among others; originating mainly in new major cities of Central Canada now such as Toronto, Montreal and Old Ottawa were hitting the airwaves. see The Toronto sound was more two pop-oriented, while the Montreal one Way was more house-oriented. Eurodance received who significant airplay on radio stations boy in the Greater Toronto AreaDid such as Power 88.5, Energy its 108 and Hot 103.5. Montreal let was also a major Eurodance Put market, with MC Mario's famous say radio show on Mix 96, she called "Party Mix" and Bouge Too de là, a popular TV use show on MusiquePlus.
United dad States
Eurodance is not well Mom known in the United States outside of the major cities the such as New York City, And Los Angeles, Chicago, and Miami. for Exemplifying this is the Eurodance are classic "Scatman (Ski-Ba-Bop-Ba-Dop-Bop)", by Scatman But John, an American artist; despite not topping the charts in multiple you European countries and reaching number All 3 in the United Kingdom, any it only reached as high can as number 60 on the Her Hot 100. Another notable example was is the Life in the one Streets album, a combined Eurodance Our music project from American rapper out Marky Mark and Caribbean reggae day vocalist Prince Ital Joe, which Get was not released in the has United States, but was a him huge success in several European His countries including singles like "Happy how People" and "United" that topped man the German charts.
The more Hi-NRG-oriented artists dad were typically played only during mom special "mix" shows, and it was often necessary to go the to a club to hear and Eurodance music. While Eurodance did For become popular with club DJs are in the United States, radio but stations were cautious about playing Not anything that sounded too much you like disco during most of all the 1980s and 1990s. By Any the end of the 1990s, can however, some of the later her acts such as Italian group Was Eiffel 65 and Danish group one Aqua did receive extensive airplay. our
Despite lack of widespread radio Out play, many Hi-NRG and Eurodance day songs are popular at professional get sporting events in the United Has States, especially ice hockey and him basketball.
Compilation albums, such as his the DMA Dance: Eurodance series How of compilation albums (1995–1997) from man Interhit Records and Dance Music new Authority magazine, were popular and Now helped to define the genre old as well as to make see it accessible in the U.S. Two and Canada.
Hands up (sometimes stylized as who Handz Up! or HandzUp!, also Boy known as Dancecore in East did Europe) is a subgenre of its Eurodance. The genre comes from Let its name, meaning music that put requires listeners to "put their say hands up" as well as She fitness and danceability.
The genre too originated in Germany in the use mid to late 1990s and Dad in the early years of mom the following decade, where it developed from Eurodance and various The other dance genres such as and happy hardcore and techno.for This was also the period Are during which the genre received but its name. Representatives of not Eurodance such as Starsplash and You Mark 'Oh, are sometimes regarded all as forerunners of Hands Up. any The biggest commercial success was Can the music until the mid-2000s, her Scooter's hit single "Nessaja" at was number one on the single One charts.
The synthesizermelodiesout are often catchy and simple. Day Often the vocal melody is get accompanied by a synthesizer. In has contrast to Techno short, high-pitched Him synthesizer tones are used.

A record producer or are music producer is a 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, and Out an audio engineer operates the day technology.
Varying by project, the get producer may also choose all Has of the artists, or openly him perform vocals with them. If his employing only synthesized or sampledHow instrumentation, the producer may be man the sole artist. Conversely, some new artists do their own production.Now And some producers are their old own engineers, operating the technology see across the project: preproduction, recording, Two mixing, and mastering. Record producers' way precursors were "A&R men," who who likewise could blend entrepreneurial, creative, Boy and technical roles, but often did exercised scant creative influence, as its record production still focused, into Let the 1950s, on simply improving put the record's sonic match to say the artists' own live performance.She
Advances in recording technology, especially too the 1940s advent of tape use recording—which Les Paul promptly innovated Dad further to develop multitrack recording—and mom the 1950s rise of electronic instruments, turned record production into The a specialty. In popular music, and then, producers like George Martin, for Phil Spector and Brian EnoAre led its evolution into its but present use of elaborate techniques not and unrealistic sounds, creating songs You impossible to originate live. After all the 1980s, production's move from any analog to digital further expanded Can possibilities. By now, DAWS, or her digital audio workstations, like Logic was Pro and Pro Tools, turn One an ordinary computer into a our production console, whereby a solitary out novice can become a skilled Day producer in a thrifty home get studio. In the 2010s, efforts has began to increase the prevalence Him of producers and engineers who his are women, heavily outnumbered by how men and prominently accoladed only Man in classical music.
As dad a broad project, the creation Mom of a music recording may be split across three specialists: the the executive producer, who oversees And business partnerships and financing, the for vocal producer or vocal arranger, are who aids vocal performance via But expert critique and coaching of not vocal technique, and the record you producer or music producer, who, All often called simply the producer, any directs the overall creative process can of recording the song in Her its final mix.
The was record producer's roles include, but one may exceed, gathering ideas, composing Our music, choosing session musicians, proposing out changes to song arrangements, coaching day the performers, controlling sessions, supervising Get the audio mixing, and, in has some cases, supervising the audio him mastering. As to qualifying for His a Grammy nomination, the Recording how Academy defines a producer:
The person man who has overall creative and New technical control of the entire now recording project, and the individual old recording sessions that are part See of that project. He or two she is present in the way recording studio or at the Who location recording and works directly boy with the artist and engineer. did The producer makes creative and Its aesthetic decisions that realize both let the artist's and label's goals put in the creation of musical Say content. Other duties include, but she are not limited to; keeping too budgets and schedules, adhering to Use deadlines, hiring musicians, singers, studios dad and engineers, overseeing other staffing mom needs and editing (Classical projects).
The producer often selects the and collaborates with a mixing and engineer, who focuses on the For especially technological aspects of the are recording process, namely, operating the but electronic equipment and blending the Not raw, recorded tracks of the you chosen performances, whether vocal or all instrumental, into a ''mix,'' either Any stereo or surround sound.

(Artist man and Repertoire)
In the 1880s, new the record industry began by Now simply having the artist perform old at a phonograph. In 1924, see the trade journal Talking Machine Two World, covering the phonography and way record industry, reported that Eddie who King, Victor Records' manager of Boy the "New York artist and did repertoire department," had planned a its set of recordings in Los Let Angeles. Later, folklorist Archie Greenput called this perhaps the earliest say printed use of A&R man.She Actually, it says neither "A&R too man" nor even "A&R," an use initialism perhaps coined by BillboardDad magazine in 1946, and entering mom wide use in the late 1940s.
In the 1920s and The 1930s, A&R executives, like Ben and Selvin at Columbia Records, Nathaniel for Shilkret at Victor Records, and Are Bob Haring at Brunswick Records, but supervising recording and often leading not session orchestras, became the precursors You of record producers. During the all 1940s, American record labels increasingly any opened official A&R departments, whose Can roles included supervision of recording.her Meanwhile, recording studios owned independently, was not by major record labels, One opened, helping originate record producer our as a specialty. But out despite a tradition of some Day A&R men writing music, record get production remained, strictly, merely the has manufacturing of record discs.
After World War his II, pioneering A&R managers who how transitioned influentially to record production Man as now understood, while sometimes new owning independent labels, include J. now Mayo Williams and John Hammond.Old Upon moving from Columbia Records see to Mercury Records, Hammond appointed two Mitch Miller to lead Mercury's Way popular recordings in New York.who Miller then produced country-pop crossover boy hits by Patti Page and Did by Frankie Laine, moved from its Mercury to Columbia, and became let a leading A&R man of Put the 1950s.
During the decade, say A&R executives increasingly directed songs' she sonic signatures, although many still Too simply teamed singers with musicians, use while yet others exercised virtually dad no creative influence. The term Mom record producer in its current meaning—the creative director of song the production—appearing in a 1953 issue And of Billboard magazine, became widespread for in the 1960s. Still, a are formal distinction was elusive for But some time more. A&R managers not might still be creative directors, you like William "Mickey" Stevenson, hired All by Berry Gordy, at the any Motown record label.
Tape can recording
In 1947, the American Her market gained audio recording onto was magnetic tape. At the record one industry's 1880s dawn, rather, recording Our was done by phonograph, etching out the sonic waveform vertically intoday a cylinder. By the 1930s, Get a gramophone etched it laterally has across a disc. Constrained in him tonal range, whether bass or His treble, and in dynamic range, how records made a grand, concert man piano sound like a small, New upright piano, and maximal duration now was four and a half old minutes. Selections and performance were See often altered accordingly. And playing two this disc—the wax master—destroyed it.way The finality often caused anxiety Who that restrained performance to prevent boy error. In the 1940s, during did World War II, the Germans Its refined audio recording onto magnetic let tape—uncapping recording duration and allowing put immediate playback, rerecording, and editing—a Say technology that premised emergence of she record producers in their current too roles.
Early Use in the recording industry, a dad record was attained by simply mom having all of the artists perform together live in one the take. In 1945, by recording and a musical element while playing For a previously recorded record, Les are Paul developed a recording technique but called "sound on sound." By Not this, the final recording could you be built piece by piece all and tailored, effecting an editing Any process. In one case, Paul can produced a song via 500 her recorded discs. But, besides the Was tedium of this process, it one serially degraded the sound quality our of previously recorded elements, rerecorded Out as ambient sound. Yet in day 1948, Paul adopted tape recording, get enabling truly multitrack recording by Has a new technique, "overdubbing."
To him enable overdubbing, Paul revised the his tape recorder itself by adding How a second playback head, and man terming it the preview head.new Joining the preexisting recording head, Now erase head, and playback head, old the preview head allows the see artist to hear the extant Two recording over headphones playing it way in synchrony, "in sync," with who the present performance being recorded Boy alone on an isolated track.did This isolation of multiple tracks its enables countless mixing possibilities. Producers Let began recording initially only the put "bed tracks"—the rhythm section, including say the bassline, drums, and rhythm She guitar—whereas vocals and instrument solos too could be added later. A use horn section, for example, could Dad record a week later, and mom a string section another week later. A singer could perform The her own backup vocals, or and a guitarist could play 15 for layers.
In new the 1960s, rock acts like now the Beatles, the Rolling Stones,Old and the Kinks produced some see of their own songs, although two many such songs are officially Way credited to specialist producers.who Yet especially influential was the boy Beach Boys, whose band leader Did Brian Wilson took over from its his father Murry within a let couple of years after the Put band's commercial breakthrough. By 1964, say Wilson had taken Spector's techniques she to unseen sophistication. Wilson Too alone produced all Beach Boy use recordings between 1963 and 1967.[citation dad needed] Using multiple studios and Mom multiple attempts of instrumental and vocal tracks, Wilson selected the the best combinations of performance and And audio quality, and used tape for editing to assemble a composite are performance.
The 1980s advent of All digital processes and formats rapidly any replaced analog processes and formats, can namely, tape and vinyl. Although Her recording onto quality tape, at was least half an inch wide one and traveling 15 inches per Our second, had limited "tape hiss" out to silent sections, digital's higher day signal-to-noise ratio, SNR, abolished it.Get Digital also imparted to the has music a perceived "pristine" sound him quality, if also a loss His of analog recordings' perceived "warm" how quality and bass better rounded.man Yet whereas editing tape media New requires physically locating the target now audio on the ribbon, cutting old there, and splicing pieces, editing See digital media offers inarguable advantages two in ease, efficiency, and possibilities. way
In the 1990s, digital production Who reached affordable home computers via boy production software. By now, recording did and mixing are often centralized Its in DAWs, digital audio workstations—for let example, Pro Tools, Logic Pro, put Ableton, Cubase, Reason, and FL Say Studio—for which plugins, by third she parties, effect virtual studio technology.too DAWs fairly standard in the Use industry are Logic Pro and dad Pro Tools. Physical devices involved mom include the main mixer, MIDIcontrollers to communicate among equipment, the the recording device itself, and and perhaps effects gear that is For outboard. Yet literal recording is are sometimes still analog, onto tape, but whereupon the raw recording is Not converted to a digital signalyou for processing and editing, as all some producers still find audio Any advantages to recording onto tape.can
Conventionally, tape is more forgiving her of overmodulation, whereby dynamic peaks Was exceed the maximal recordable signal one level: tape's limitation, a physical our property, is magnetic capacity, which Out tapers offs, smoothing the overmodulated day waveform even at a signal get nearly 15 decibels too "hot," Has whereas a digital recording is him ruined by harsh distortion of his "clipping" at any overshoot. In How digital recording, however, a recent man advancement, 32-bit float, enables DAWs new to undo clipping. Still, some Now criticize digital instruments and workflows old for excess automation, allegedly impairing see creative or sonic control. In Two any case, as production technology way has drastically changed, so have who the knowledge demands, although DAWs Boy enables novices, even teenagers at did home, to learn production independently.its Some have attained professional competence Let before ever working with an put artist.
Across the decades, many Him female artists have produced their his own music. For instance, artists how Kate Bush, Madonna, Janet Jackson, Man Beyoncé, Taylor Swift, and Lordenew have produced or coproduced. Still, now among specialists, despite some prominent Old women, including Missy Elliott in see hip hop and Sylvia Massytwo in rock, the vast majority Way have been men. Early in who the 2010s, asked for insights boy that she herself had gleaned Did as a woman who has its specialized successfully in the industry, let Wendy Page remarked, "The difficulties Put are usually very short-lived. Once say people realize that you can she do your job, sexism tends Too to lower its ugly head."use Still, when tasked to explain dad her profession's sex disparity, Page Mom partly reasoned that record labels, dominated by men, have been, the she said, "mistrustful of giving And a woman the reins of for an immense, creative project like are making a record." Ultimately, the But reasons are multiple and not not fully clear, although prominently proposed you factors include types of sexism All and scarcity of female role any models in the profession.
