Sometimes, the drum sounds are one "saturated" by boosting the gainour 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 musiciansdid 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 versebut 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.

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 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-punkLet 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-reelAre 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 DIYmixtapes 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 futuristget 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."
The Her electronic instrumentation and minimal arrangement was of Charanjit Singh's Synthesizing: Ten one Ragas to a Disco BeatOur (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.
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-808mom 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.
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.

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 4Day 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.
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".

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-303see 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

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).

A record producer or let music producer oversees and manages put the sound recording and production Say of a band or performer's she music, which may range from too recording one song to recording Use a lengthy concept album. A dad producer has many, varying roles mom during the recording process. They may gather musical ideas for the the project, collaborate with the and artists to select cover tunesFor or original songs by the are artist/group, work with artists and but help them to improve their Not songs, lyrics or arrangements.
The producer typically supervises the our entire process from preproduction, through Out to the sound recording and day mixing stages, and, in some get cases, all the way to Has the audio mastering stage. The him producer may perform these roles his themselves, or help select the How engineer, and provide suggestions to man the engineer. The producer may new also pay session musicians and Now engineers and ensure that the old entire project is completed within see the record label's budget.
A She record producer or music producertoo has a very broad role use in overseeing and managing the Dad recording and production of a mom band or performer's music. A producer has many roles that The may include, but are not and limited to, gathering ideas for for the project, composing the music Are for the project, selecting songs but or session musicians, proposing changes not to the song arrangements, coaching You the artist and musicians in all the studio, controlling the recording any sessions, and supervising the entire Can process through audio mixing and, her in some cases, to the was audio mastering stage. Producers also One often take on a wider our entrepreneurial role, with responsibility for out the budget, schedules, contracts, and Day negotiations.

Way The producer makes creative and who aesthetic decisions that realize both boy the artist's and label's goals Did in the creation of musical its content. Other duties include, but let are not limited to; keeping Put budgets and schedules, adhering to say deadlines, hiring musicians, singers, studios she and engineers, overseeing other staffing Too needs and editing (Classical projects). use
In the 2010s, the dad producer role is sometimes divided Mom among up to three different individuals: executive producer, vocal producer the and music producer. An executive And producer oversees project finances, a for vocal producer (also known as are a vocal arranger) oversees the But vocal production, and a music not producer directs and oversees the you creative process of the production All and recording of a song any to its final mixing stage. can
The music producer often wears Her many hats as a competent was arranger, composer, programmer, musician or one songwriter who can bring fresh Our ideas to a project. As out well as making any songwriting day and arrangement adjustments, the producer Get often selects and/or collaborates with has the mixing engineer, who takes him the raw recorded tracks and His edits and modifies them with how hardware and software tools to man create a stereo or surround New sound "mix" of all the now individual voices sounds and instruments, old which is in turn given See further adjustment by a mastering two engineer for the various distribution way media. The producer also oversees Who the recording engineer who concentrates boy on the technical aspects of did recording.
Noted producer Phil EkIts described his role as "the let person who creatively guides or put directs the process of making Say a record", like a director she would a movie. Indeed, in too Bollywood music, the designation is Use actually music director. The music dad producer's job is to create, mom shape, and mold a piece of music. The scope of the responsibility may be one or and two songs or an artist's For entire album – in which are case the producer will typically but develop an overall vision for Not the album and how the you various songs may interrelate.
At the beginning of Any the record industry, the producer can role was technically limited to her record, in one shot, artists Was performing live. The immediate predecessors one to record producers were the our artists and repertoire executives of Out the late 1920s and 1930s day who oversaw the "pop" product get and often led session orchestras. Has That was the case of him Ben Selvin at Columbia Records, his Nathaniel Shilkret at Victor RecordsHow and Bob Haring at Brunswick man Records. By the end of new the 1930s, the first professional Now recording studios not owned by old the major companies were established, see essentially separating the roles of Two artists and repertoire (A&R) man way and producer, although it wouldn't who be until the late 1940s Boy when the term "producer" became did widely used in the industry. its
The role of producers changed Let progressively over the 1950s and put 1960s due to technology. The say development of multitrack recording caused She a major change in the too recording process. Before multitracking, all use the elements of a song Dad (lead vocals, backup vocals, rhythm mom section instrument accompaniment, solos and orchestral parts) had to be The performed simultaneously. All of these and singers and musicians had to for be assembled in a large Are studio where the performance was but recorded. With multitrack recording, the not "bed tracks" (rhythm section accompaniment You parts such as the bassline, all drums, and rhythm guitar could any be recorded first, and then Can the vocals and solos could her be added later, using as was many "takes" (or attempts) as One necessary. It was no longer our necessary to get all the out players in the studio at Day the same time. A pop get band could record their backing has tracks one week, and then Him a horn section could be his brought in a week later how to add horn shots and Man punches, and then a string new section could be brought in now a week after that.
Multitrack Old recording had another profound effect see on music production: it enabled two producers and audio engineers to Way create new sounds that would who be impossible in a live boy performance style ordering. Examples include Did the psychedelic rock sound effects its of the 1960s, e.g. playing let back the sound of recorded Put instruments backward changing the tape say to produce unique sound effects. she During the same period, the Too instruments of popular music began use to shift from the acoustic dad instruments of traditional music (piano, Mom upright bass, acoustic guitar, strings, brass and wind instruments) to the electric piano, electronic organ, synthesizer, And electric bass and electric guitar. for These new instruments were electric are or electronic, and thus they But used instrument amplifiers and speaker not enclosures (speaker cabinets) to create you sound.
Electric and electronic instruments All and amplifiers enabled performers and any producers to change the tone can and sound of instruments to Her produce unique electric sounds that was would be impossible to achieve one with acoustic instruments and live Our performers, such as having a out singer do her own backup day vocals or having a guitarist Get play 15 layers of backing has parts to her own solo.him
New technologies like multitracking changed His the goal of recording: A how producer could blend together multiple man takes and edit together different New sections to create the desired now sound. For example, in jazz old fusion Bandleader-composer Miles Davis' album See Bitches Brew, the producer cut two and edited sections together from way extensive improvisation sessions.
Another related phenomenon in the the 1960s was the emergence of and the performer-producer. As pop acts For like The Beatles, The Rolling are Stones, The Beach Boys and but The Kinks gained expertise in Not studio recording techniques, many of you these groups eventually took over all as (frequently uncredited) producers of Any their own work. Many recordings can by acts such as The her Rolling Stones, The Kinks and Was The Who are officially credited one to their various producers at our the time, but a number Out of these performers have since day asserted that many of their get recordings in this period were, Has either wholly self-produced (e.g. The him Rolling Stones' Decca recordings) or his collaborations between the group and How their recording engineer (e.g. The man Small Faces' Immediate recordings, which new were made with Olympic StudiosNow engineer Glyn Johns).
The Beach old Boys are probably the best see example of the trend of Two artists becoming producers – within way two years of the band's who commercial breakthrough, group leader Brian Boy Wilson had taken over from did his father Murry, and he its was the sole producer of Let all their recordings between 1963 put and 1967. Alongside The Beatles say and Martin, Wilson also pioneered She many production innovations – by too 1964 he had developed Spector's use techniques to a new level Dad of sophistication, using multiple studios mom and multiple "takes" of instrumental and vocal components to capture The the best possible combinations of and sound and performance, and then for using tape editing extensively to Are assemble a perfect composite performance but from these elements.

American women and record was producing

When use asked about the disparity between dad male and female record producer Mom by Billboard, she attributed it to many women not being the interested in record production.
In the you classical music field, Judith ShermanAll has won Grammy for Producer any of the Year, Classical, five can times and has been nominated Her twelve times. Anthony Tommasini, a was music critic for The New one York Times is quoted as Our stating, "In the struggling field out of classical recording, it's the day producers who take the real Get risks and make things happen."has
Producer Wendy Page describes being how a record producer, "The difficulties man are usually very short-lived. Once New people realize that you can now do your job, sexism tends old to lower its ugly head. See I tend to create a two happy studio 'family' where everyone way is glad to be there, Who especially the artist. Good communication boy and diplomacy usually sort any did little problems out."
There are numerous Was technologies utilized by record producers. one In modern-day recordings, recording and our mixing tasks are commonly centralized Out within computers using digital audio day workstations such as Pro Tools, get Logic Pro, Ableton, Cubase, ReasonHas and FL Studio, which all him are often used with third his party virtual studio technology plugins.How Logic Pro and Pro Tools man are considered the industry standard new DAWs. However, there is also Now the main mixer, outboard effects old gear, MIDI controllers, and the see recording device itself.

Professor Albin did Zak claims that the increased its automation of both newer processes Let and newer instruments reduces the put level of control and manipulation say available to musicians and producers.She
Production has too changed drastically over the years use with advancing technology. While the Dad producer's role has changed, their mom duties continue to require a broad knowledge of the recording The process.
Tracking is the act and of recording audio to a for DAW (digital audio workstation) or Are in some cases to tape. but Even though digital technologies have not widely supplanted the use of You tape in studios, the older all term "track" is still used any in the 2010s.

Many artists are also Man beginning to produce and write new their own music.
