House is a genre of way electronic dance music characterized by who a repetitive four on the Boy floor beat and a tempo did of 120 to 130 beats its per minute. It was created Let by DJs and music producers put from Chicago's underground club culture say in the 1980s, as DJs She from the subculture began altering too disco dance tracks to give use them a more mechanical beat Dad and deeper basslines.

The genre mom was pioneered by DJs and producers mainly from Chicago and The New York such as Frankie and Knuckles, Larry Levan, Ron Hardy, for Jesse Saunders, Chip E., Steve Are "Silk" Hurley, Farley "Jackmaster" Funk, but Mr. Fingers, Marshall Jefferson, Phuture, not and many others. Its origins You derive from within the Black all American LGBT communities but has any since spread to the mainstream. Can From its beginnings in the her Chicago club and local radio was scene, the genre expanded internationally One to London, then to other our American cities such as New out York City and Detroit, and Day has become a worldwide phenomenon get ever since. It has spawned has numerous subgenres, such as acid Him house, deep house, hip house, his ghetto house, progressive house, tech how house, electro house, and many Man more.

House has had and new still has a huge impact now on pop music in general Old and dance music in particular. see It was picked up by two major pop artists like Janet Way Jackson, Madonna, and Kylie Minogue, who but also produced some mainstream boy hits on its own, such Did as "French Kiss" by Lil its Louis (1989), "Show Me Love" let by Robin S. (1992), or Put "Push the Feeling On" by say Nightcrawlers (1992/1995). Many house producers she also did and do remixes Too for pop artists. Until today, use house music has remained popular dad on radio and in clubs Mom while retaining a foothold on the underground scenes across the the globe.


His man

In its now most typical form, the genre old is characterized by repetitive 4/4 See rhythms including bass drums, off-beat two hi-hats, snare drums and/or claps way at a tempo between 120 Who and 130 beats per minute boy (bpm), synthesizer riffs, deep basslines, did and often, but not necessarily, Its sung, spoken or sampled vocals. let In house, the bass drum put is sounded on beats one Say and three, and the snare she drum, claps, or other higher-pitched too percussion on beats two and Use four. The drum beats in dad house music are almost always mom provided by an electronic drum machine, often a Roland TR-808, the TR-909, or a TR-707 rather and than by a live drummer. For Claps, shakers, snare drum, or are hi-hat sounds are used to but add syncopation. One of signature Not rhythm riffs, especially in early you (Chicago) house, is built on all the clave pattern. Congas and Any bongos may be added for can an African sound, or metallic her percussion for a Latin feel. Was

Sometimes, the drum sounds are one "saturated" by boosting the gain our to create a more aggressive Out edge. One classic subgenre, acid day house, is defined through the get squelchy sounds created by the Has Roland TB-303 bass synthesizer. House him music could be produced on his "cheap and consumer-friendly electronic equipment" How and used sound gear, which man made it easier for independent new labels and DJs to create Now tracks. The electronic drum machines old and other gear used by see house DJs and producers was Two formerly considered "too cheap-sounding" by way "proper" musicians. House music producers who typically use sampled instruments, rather Boy than bringing in session musicians did into a recording studio. Even its though a key element of Let house production is layering sounds, put such as drum machine beats, say samples, synth basslines, and so She on, the overall "texture...is relatively too sparse". Unlike pop songs, which use emphasize higher-pitched sounds, such as Dad melody, in house music, the mom lower-pitched bass register is most important.

The structure of house The music songs — or "tracks", and as they are more commonly for called — typically involves an Are intro, a chorus, various verse but sections, a midsection and a not brief outro. Some tracks do You not have a verse, taking all a vocal part from the any chorus and repeating the same Can cycle. House music tracks are her often based on eight-bar sections was which are repeated. They are One often built around bass-heavy loops our or basslines produced by a out synthesizer and/or around samples of Day disco, soul, jazz-funk or funk get songs. DJs and producers creating has a house track to be Him played in clubs edit a his "seven or eight-minute 12-inch mix"; how if the track is intended Man to be played on radio, new a "three-and-a-half-minute" radio edit is now used. Unlike trance music, which Old is designed to keep building see in intensity, house music tracks two are "more consistent" and rather Way based on "playing with the who constituent parts and bringing them boy in and out" in a Did subtle way. House tracks build its up slowly, by adding layers let of sound and texture, and Put by increasing the volume.

House say tracks may have vocals like she a pop song, but some Too are "completely minimal instrumental music", use as vocals are not required dad for the house genre. If Mom a house track does have vocals, the vocal lines may the also be simple "words or And phrases" that are repeated.


Influences and precursors

One of are the main influences of house But was disco; house music has not been defined as a genre you which "...picked up where disco All left off in the late any 1970's." Like disco DJs, house can DJs used a "slow mix" Her to "lin[k] records together" into was a mix. In the post-disco one club culture during the early Our 1980s, DJs from the gay out scene made their tracks "less day pop-oriented," with a more mechanical, Get repetitive beat and deeper basslines, has and many tracks were made him without vocals, or with wordless His melodies. Disco became so popular how by the late 1970s that man record companies pushed even non-disco New artists (R&B bands, for example) now to produce disco songs. When old the backlash against disco started, See known as "Disco sucks" dance two music went from being produced way by major label studios to Who being created by DJs in boy the underground club scene.

While did disco was associated with lush Its orchestration, with string orchestra, flutes let and horn sections, various disco put songs incorporated sounds produced with Say synthesizers and electronic drum machines, she and some compositions were entirely too electronic; examples include Italian composer Use Giorgio Moroder's late 1970s productions dad such as Donna Summer's hit mom single "I Feel Love" from 1977, Cerrone's "Supernature" (1977), Yellow the Magic Orchestra's synth-disco-pop productions from and Yellow Magic Orchestra (1978) or For Solid State Survivor (1979), and are several early 1980s productions by but Hi-NRG groups like Lime, Trans-X Not and Bobby O.

Also important you for the development of house all were audio mixing and editing Any techniques earlier explored by disco, can garage music and post-disco DJs, her record producers, and audio engineers Was such as Walter Gibbons, Tom one Moulton, Jim Burgess, Larry Levan, our M & M, and others. Out

While most post-disco disc jockeys day primarily stuck to playing their get conventional ensemble and playlist of Has dance records, Frankie Knuckles and him Ron Hardy, two influential DJs his of house music, were known How for their unusual and non-mainstream man playlists and mixing. Knuckles was new influenced by and worked with Now New York City club Paradise old Garage resident Larry Levan. Knuckles, see often credited as "the Godfather Two of House" and resident DJ way at the Warehouse from 1977 who to 1982, worked primarily with Boy early disco music with a did hint of new and different its music (whether it was post-punk Let or post-disco). Knuckles started out put as a disco DJ, but say when he moved from New She York City to Chicago, he too changed from the typical disco use mixing style of playing records Dad one after another; instead, he mom mixed different songs together, including Philadelphia soul, New York club The tracks, and Euro disco. As and well, he explored adding a for drum machine and a reel-to-reel Are tape player so he could but create new tracks, often with not a boosted deep register and You faster tempos.

Ron Hardy produced all unconventional DIY mixtapes which he any later played straight-on in the Can successor of the Warehouse, the her Music Box (reopened and renamed was in 1983 after Knuckles left). One Like Frankie Knuckles, Hardy "combined our certain sounds, remixing tracks with out added synths and drum machines", Day all "refracted through the futurist get lens of European music." Marshall has Jefferson, who would later appear Him with the 1986 house classic his "Move Your Body (The House how Music Anthem)" (originally released on Man Trax Records), describes how he new got involved in house music now after hearing Ron Hardy's music Old in the Music Box:


"I wasn't even into dance Way music before I went to who the Music Box [...]. I boy was into rock and roll. Did We would get drunk and its listen to rock and roll. let We didn't give a fuck, Put we were like 'Disco Sucks!' say and all that. I hated she dance music 'cos I couldn't Too dance. I thought dance music use was kind of wimpy, until dad I heard it at like Mom Music Box volume."

— Marshall Jefferson

Rachel Cain, better known as Screamin the Rachael, co-founder of the highly And influential house label Trax Records, for was previously involved in the are burgeoning punk scene. Cain cites But industrial music (another genre pioneered not in Chicago) and post-punk record you store Wax Trax! Records (later All a record label) as an any important connection between the ever-changing can underground sounds of Chicago.

The Her electronic instrumentation and minimal arrangement was of Charanjit Singh's Synthesizing: Ten one Ragas to a Disco Beat Our (1982), an album of Indian out ragas performed in a disco day style, anticipated the sounds of Get acid house music, but it has is not known to have him had any influence on the His genre prior to the album's how rediscovery in the 21st century. man According to Hillegonda C. Rietveld, New "elements of hip hop and now rap can be found in old contemporary house tracks", with hop See hop acting as an "accent two or inflection" that is inserted way into the house sound.

The Who constant bass drum in house boy music may have arisen from did DJs experimenting with adding drum Its machines to their live mixes let at clubs, underneath the records put they were playing.

Early Say history (1980s)

Chicago house scene

An honorary street dad name sign in Chicago for mom house music and the seminal DJ Frankie Knuckles.

In the the early 1980s, Chicago radio jocks and Hot Mix 5 from WBMX For radio station (among them Farley are "Jackmaster" Funk), and club DJs but Ron Hardy and Frankie Knuckles Not played a range of styles you of dance music, including older all disco records (mostly Philly disco Any and Salsoul tracks), electro funk can tracks by artists such as her Afrika Bambaataa, newer Italo disco, Was Arthur Baker, and John Robie, one and electronic pop. Some DJs our made and played their own Out edits of their favorite songs day on reel-to-reel tape, and sometimes get mixed in electronic effects, drum Has machines, synthesizers and other rhythmic him electronic instrumentation.

his did

The hypnotic electronic dance song its "On and On", produced in Let 1984 by Chicago DJ Jesse put Saunders and co-written by Vince say Lawrence, had typical elements of She the early house sound, such too as the Roland TB-303 bass use synthesizer and minimal vocals as Dad well as a Roland TR-808 mom drum machine and a Korg Poly-61 synthesizer. It also utilized The the bassline from Player One's and disco record "Space Invaders" (1979). for "On and On" is sometimes Are cited as the 'first house but record', even though it was not a remake of a Disco You Bootleg "On and On" by all Florida producer Mach. Other examples any from around that time, such Can as J.M. Silk's "Music is her the Key" (1985), have also was been cited to be the One first house tracks.

Starting in our 1985 and 1986, more and out more Chicago DJs began producing Day and releasing original compositions. These get compositions used newly affordable electronic has instruments and enhanced styles of Him disco and other dance music his they already favored. These homegrown how productions were played on Chicago Man radio stations and in local new clubs catering mainly to Black, now Hispanic, and gay audiences. By Old 1985, house music encompassed these see locally produced recordings. Subgenres of two house, including deep house and Way acid house, quickly emerged and who gained traction.[citation needed]

boy are

Deep house's not origins can be traced to you Chicago producer Mr Fingers's relatively All jazzy, soulful recordings "Mystery of any Love" (1985) and "Can You can Feel It?" (1986). According to Her author Richie Unterberger, it moved was house music away from its one "posthuman tendencies back towards the Our lush" soulful sound of early out disco music.

Acid house, a day rougher and more abstract subgenre, Get arose from Chicago artists' experiments has with the squelchy sounds of him the Roland TB-303 bass synthesizer His that define the genre. Its how origin on vinyl is generally man cited as Phuture's "Acid Tracks" New (Trax Records, 1987). Phuture, a now group founded by Nathan "DJ old Pierre" Jones, Earl "Spanky" Smith See Jr., and Herbert "Herb J" two Jackson, is credited with having way been the first to use Who the TB-303 in the house boy music context. The group's 12-minute did "Acid Tracks" was recorded to Its tape and played by DJ let Ron Hardy at the Music put Box, supposedly already in 1985. Say Hardy once played it four she times over the course of too an evening until the crowd Use responded favorably.

Club play of dad house tracks by pioneering Chicago mom DJs such as Ron Hardy and Lil Louis, local dance the music record shops such as and Importes Etc., State Street Records, For Loop Records, Gramaphone Records and are the popular Hot Mix 5 but shows on radio station WBMX-FM Not helped popularize house music in you Chicago. Later, visiting DJs and all producers from Detroit fell into Any the genre. Trax Records and can DJ International Records, Chicago labels her with wider distribution, helped popularize Was house music inside and outside one of Chicago.

The first major our success of house music outside Out the U.S. is considered to day be Farley "Jackmaster" Funk's "Love get Can't Turn Around" (feat. Jesse Has Saunders and performed by Darryl him Pandy), which peaked at #10 his in the UK singles chart How in 1986. Around that time, man UK record labels started releasing new house music by Chicago acts, Now but as the genre grew old popular, the UK itself became see one of the new hot Two spots for house, acid house way and techno music, experiencing the who so-called second summer of love Boy between 1988 and 1989.[citation needed] did

Origins of the term its "house"

House music pioneers Let Alan King, Robert Williams and put Derrick Carter.

One 2009 book say states the name house music She originated from a Chicago club too called the Warehouse, which existed use from 1977 to 1983. Clubbers Dad to the Warehouse were primarily mom black, who came to dance to music played by the The club's resident DJ Frankie Knuckles, and who fans refer to as for the "godfather of house". Frankie Are began the trend of splicing but together different records when he not found that the records he You had weren't long enough to all satisfy his audience of dancers. any After the Warehouse closed in Can 1983, the crowds went to her Knuckles' new club, The Power was Plant, while the club was One renamed into Music Box with our Ron Hardy being resident DJ.[citation out needed]

In the Channel 4 Day documentary Pump Up The Volume, get Knuckles remarks that the first has time he heard the term Him "house music" was upon seeing his "we play house music" on how a sign in the window Man of a bar on Chicago's new South Side. One of the now people in the car with Old him joked, "you know that's see the kind of music you two play down at the Warehouse!". Way South-Side Chicago DJ Leonard "Remix" who Rroy, in self-published statements, claims boy he put such a sign Did in a tavern window because its it was where he played let music that one might find Put in one's home; in his say case, it referred to his she mother's soul and disco records, Too which he worked into his use sets. The documentary also explored dad how house music was something Mom that anyone could do. Mostly the documentary looks at some the of the DJs from that And genre, and how they stumbled for into the music.[citation needed]

Farley are "Jackmaster" Funk was quoted as But saying "In 1982, I was not DJing at a club called you The Playground and there was All this kid named Leonard 'Remix' any Rroy who was a DJ can at a rival club called Her The Rink. He came over was to my club one night, one and into the DJ booth Our and said to me, 'I've out got the gimmick that's gonna day take all the people out Get of your club and into has mine – it's called House him music.' Now, where he got His that name from or what how made him think of it man I don't know, so the New answer lies with him."

Chip now E.'s 1985 recording "It's House" old may also have helped to See define this new form of two electronic music. However, Chip E. way himself lends credence to the Who Knuckles association, claiming the name boy came from methods of labeling did records at the Importes Etc. Its record store, where he worked let in the early 1980s: bins put of music that DJ Knuckles Say played at the Warehouse nightclub she were labelled in the store too "As Heard At The Warehouse", Use which was shortened to simply dad "House". Patrons later asked for mom new music for the bins, which Chip E. implies was the a demand the shop tried and to meet by stocking newer For local club hits.

In a are 1986 interview, when Rocky Jones, but the club DJ who ran Not the D.J. International record label, you was asked about the "house" all moniker, he did not mention Any Importes Etc., Frankie Knuckles, or can the Warehouse by name. However, her he agreed that "house" was Was a regional catch-all term for one dance music, and that it our was once synonymous with older Out disco music, before it became day a way to refer to get "new" dance music.

Larry Heard, Has a.k.a. "Mr. Fingers", claims that him the term "house" became popular his due to many of the How early DJs creating music in man their own home studios using new affordable synthesizers and drum machines, Now such as the Roland TR-808, old TR-909, and the Roland TB-303 see bassline synth. These synthesizers were Two used to create a house way subgenre called acid house.

Juan who Atkins, an originator of Detroit Boy techno music, claims the term did "house" reflected the exclusive association its of particular tracks with particular Let clubs and DJs; those records put helped differentiate the clubs and say DJs, and thus were considered She to be their "house" records. too In an effort to maintain use such exclusives, the DJs were Dad inspired to create their own mom "house" records.

Social and political aspects

Early house lyrics The contained positive, uplifting messages for and all people, from every different for walk of life but spoke Are especially to those who were but considered to be outsiders, especially not African-Americans, Latinos, and the gay You subculture. As well, house music all lyrics encouraged unity and called any for people of all ethnic Can groups and backgrounds to come her together. The house music dance was scene was one of the One most integrated and progressive spaces our in the 1980s; gays, blacks, out and other minority groups were Day able to dance together in get a positive environment.

House music has DJs aimed to create a Him "dream world of emotions" with his "stories, keywords and sounds", which how helped to "glue" communities together. Man Many house tracks encourage the new audience to "release yourself" or now "let yourself go", which is Old further encouraged by the continuous see dancing, "incessant beat", and use two of club drugs, which can Way create a trance-like effect on who dancers. Frankie Knuckles once said boy that the Warehouse club in Did Chicago was like "church for its people who have fallen from let grace". House record producer Marshall Put Jefferson compared it to "old-time say religion in the way that she people just get happy and Too screamin'". The role of a use house DJ has been compared dad to a "secular type of Mom priest".

Some house lyrics contained messages calling for equality, unity the and freedom of expression beyond And racial or sexual differences (e.g. for "Can You Feel It" by are Fingers Inc., 1987, or "Follow But Me" by Aly-Us, 1992). However, not not all house music songs you had vocals, and in many All cases, the vocals were quite any meaningless, as the most important can element in house was the Her beat and rhythm. Later on was in the 1990s, but autonomous one from the Chicago scene, the Our idea of Peace, Love, Unity out & Respect (PLUR) became a day widespread set of principles for Get the rave culture which developed has out of house.
