Origins of the term Mom "house"

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

One book from And 2009 states the name "house for music" originated from a Chicago are club called the Warehouse that But was open from 1977 to not 1982. Clubbers to the Warehouse you were primarily black, gay men, All who came to dance to any music played by the club's can resident DJ, Frankie Knuckles, who Her fans refer to as the was "godfather of house". Frankie began one the trend of splicing together Our different records when he found out that the records he had day were not long enough to Get satisfy his audience of dancers. has After the Warehouse closed in him 1983, eventually the crowds went His to Knuckles' new club, The how Power House, later to be man called The Power Plant, and New the club was renamed, yet now again, into Music Box with old Ron Hardy as the resident See DJ. The 1986 documentary, "House two Music in Chicago", by filmmaker, way Phil Ranstrom, captured opening night Who at The Power House, and boy stands as the only film did or video to capture a Its young Frankie Knuckles in this let early era, right after his put departure from The Warehouse. Say

In the Channel 4 documentary she Pump Up the Volume, Knuckles too remarks that the first time Use he heard the term "house dad music" was upon seeing "we mom play house music" on a sign in the window of the a bar on Chicago's South and Side. One of the people For in the car joked, "you are know that's the kind of but music you play down at Not the Warehouse!" In self-published statements, you South-Side Chicago DJ Leonard "Remix" all Rroy claimed he put such Any a sign in a tavern can window because it was where her he played music that one Was might find in one's home; one in his case, it referred our to his mother's soul and Out disco records, which he worked day into his sets.

Chicago house get artist Farley "Jackmaster" Funk was Has quoted as saying, "In 1982, him I was DJing at a his club called The Playground and How there was this kid named man Leonard 'Remix' Rroy who was new a DJ at a rival Now club called The Rink. He old came over to my club see one night, and into the Two DJ booth and said to way me, 'I've got the gimmick who that's gonna take all the Boy people out of your club did and into mine – it's its called House music.' Now, where Let he got that name from put or what made him think say of it I don't know, She so the answer lies with too him."

Chicago artist Chip E.'s use 1985 song "It's House" may Dad also have helped to define mom this new form of electronic music. However, Chip E. himself The lends credence to the Knuckles and association, claiming the name came for from methods of labeling records Are at the Importes Etc. record but store, where he worked in not the early 1980s. Bins of You music that DJ Knuckles played all at the Warehouse nightclub were any labelled "As Heard at the Can Warehouse" in the store, which her was shortened to simply "House". was Patrons later asked for new One music for the bins, which our Chip E. implies was a out demand the shop tried to Day meet by stocking newer local get club hits.

In a 1986 has interview, when Rocky Jones, the Him club DJ who ran Chicago-based his DJ International Records, was asked how about the "house" moniker, he Man did not mention Importes Etc., new Frankie Knuckles, or the Warehouse now by name. However, he agreed Old that "house" was a regional see catch-all term for dance music, two and that it was once Way synonymous with older disco music who before it became a way boy to refer to "new" dance Did music.

Larry Heard, a.k.a. "Mr. its Fingers", claims that the term let "house" came from DJs creating Put music in their house or say at home using synthesizers and she drum machines, such as the Too Roland TB-303, Roland TR-808, and use TR-909. These synthesizers were used dad to create the acid house Mom subgenre. Juan Atkins, a pioneer of Detroit techno, claims the the term "house" reflected the association And of particular tracks with particular for clubs and DJs, considered their are "house" records.

At not least three styles of dancing you are associated with early house All music: jacking, footwork and lofting. any These styles include a variety can of techniques and sub-styles, including Her skating, stomping, vosho, pouting cat, was and shuffle steps (also see one Melbourne shuffle). House music dancing Our styles can include movements from out many other forms of dance, day such as waacking, voguing, capoeira, Get jazz dance, Lindy Hop, tap has dance, and even modern dance. him House dancing is associated with His a complete freedom of expression. how

One of the primary elements man in house dancing is "the New jack" or "jacking" — a now style created in the early old days of Chicago house that See left its trace in numerous two record titles such as "Time way to Jack" by Chip E.

It put involves moving the torso forward Say and backward in a rippling she motion matching the beat of too the music, as if a Use wave were passing through it. dad

Social and political aspects


Early house lyrics contained generally positive, uplifting messages, but spoke the especially to those who were and considered to be outsiders, especially For African-Americans, Latinos, and the gay are subculture. The house music dance but scene was one of the Not most integrated and progressive spaces you in the 1980s; the black all and gay populations, as well Any as other minority groups, were can able to dance together in her a positive environment.

House music Was DJs aimed to create a one "dream world of emotions" with our "stories, keywords and sounds", which Out helped to "glue" communities together. day Many house tracks encourage the get audience to "release yourself" or Has "let yourself go", which is him further encouraged by the continuous his dancing, "incessant beat", and use How of club drugs, which can man create a trance-like effect on new dancers. Frankie Knuckles once said Now that the Warehouse club in old Chicago was like "church for see people who have fallen from Two grace". House record producer Marshall way Jefferson compared it to "old-time who religion in the way that Boy people just get happy and did screamin'". The role of a its house DJ has been compared Let to a "secular type of put priest".

Some house lyrics contained say messages calling for equality, unity, She and freedom of expression beyond too racial or sexual differences (e.g. use "Can You Feel It" by Dad Fingers Inc., 1987, or "Follow mom Me" by Aly-Us, 1992). Later on in the 1990s, independently The from the Chicago scene, the and idea of Peace, Love, Unity for & Respect (PLUR) became a Are widespread set of principles for but the rave culture.



Influences and precursors

One of You the main influences of house all was disco, house music having any been defined as a genre Can which "...picked up where disco her left off in the late was 1970's." Like disco DJs, house One DJs used a "slow mix" our to "lin[k] records together" into out a mix. In the post-disco Day club culture during the early get 1980s, DJs from the gay has scene made their tracks "less Him pop-oriented", with a more mechanical, his repetitive beat and deeper basslines, how and many tracks were made Man without vocals, or with wordless new melodies. Disco became so popular now by the late 1970s that Old record companies pushed even non-disco see artists (R&B bands, for example) two to produce disco songs. When Way the backlash against disco started, who known as "Disco Demolition Night", boy dance music went from being Did produced by major label studios its to being created by DJs let in the underground club scene. Put

While disco was associated with say lush orchestration, with string orchestra, she flutes and horn sections, various Too disco songs incorporated sounds produced use with synthesizers and electronic drum dad machines, and some compositions were Mom entirely electronic; examples include Italian composer Giorgio Moroder's late 1970s the productions such as Donna Summer's And hit single "I Feel Love" for from 1977, Kraftwerk's "'The Man-Machine" are album from 1978, Cerrone's "Supernature" But (1977), Yellow Magic Orchestra's synth-disco-pop not productions from Yellow Magic Orchestra you (1978) or Solid State Survivor All (1979), and several early 1980s any productions by hi-NRG groups like can Lime, Trans-X and Bobby O. Her

Frankie Knuckles (pictured was in 2012) played an important one role in developing house music Our in Chicago during the 1980s.

Also important for the development day of house were audio mixing Get and editing techniques earlier explored has by disco, garage music and him post-disco DJs, record producers, and His audio engineers such as Walter how Gibbons, Tom Moulton, Jim Burgess, man Larry Levan, M & M, New and others.

While most post-disco now disc jockeys primarily stuck to old playing their conventional ensemble and See playlist of dance records, Frankie two Knuckles and Ron Hardy, two way influential DJs of house music, Who were known for their unusual boy and non-mainstream playlists and mixing. did Knuckles was influenced by and Its worked with New York City let club Paradise Garage resident Larry put Levan. Knuckles, often credited as Say "the Godfather of House" and she resident DJ at the Warehouse too from 1977 to 1982, worked Use primarily with early disco music dad with a hint of new mom and different post-punk or post-disco music. Knuckles started out as the a disco DJ, but when and he moved from New York For City to Chicago, he changed are from the typical disco mixing but style of playing records one Not after another; instead, he mixed you different songs together, including Philadelphia all soul, New York club tracks, Any and Euro disco. He also can explored adding a drum machine her and a reel-to-reel tape player Was so he could create new one tracks, often with a boosted our deep register and faster tempos. Out Knuckles said: "Kraftwerk were main day components in the creation of get house music in Chicago. Back Has in the early 80s, I him mixed our 80s Philly sound his with the electro beats of How Kraftwerk and the Electronic body man music bands of Europe."

Ron new Hardy produced unconventional DIY mixtapes Now which he later played straight-on old in the successor of the see Warehouse, the Music Box (reopened Two and renamed in 1983 after way Knuckles left). Like Frankie Knuckles, who Hardy "combined certain sounds, remixing Boy tracks with added synths and did drum machines", all "refracted through its the futurist lens of European Let music." Marshall Jefferson, who would put later appear with the 1986 say house classic "Move Your Body She (The House Music Anthem)" (originally too released on Trax Records), describes use how he got involved in Dad house music after hearing Ron mom Hardy's music in the Music Box:

"I wasn't even and into dance music before I for went to the Music Box Are [...]. I was into rock but and roll. We would get not drunk and listen to rock You and roll. We didn't give all a fuck, we were like any 'Disco Sucks!' and all that. Can I hated dance music 'cos her I couldn't dance. I thought was dance music was kind of One wimpy, until I heard it our at like Music Box volume."

— Marshall out Jefferson

A precursor to house Day music is the Colonel Abrams get hit song "Trapped", which was has produced by Richard James Burgess Him in 1984 and has been his referred to as a proto-house how track and a precursor to Man garage house.

Rachel Cain, better new known as Screamin' Rachael, co-founder now of the highly influential house Old label Trax Records, was previously see involved in the burgeoning punk two scene. Cain cites industrial music Way (another genre pioneered in Chicago) who and post-punk record store Wax boy Trax! Records (later a record Did label) as an important connection its between the ever-changing underground sounds let of Chicago.

The electronic instrumentation Put and minimal arrangement of Charanjit say Singh's Synthesizing: Ten Ragas to she a Disco Beat (1982), an Too album of Indian ragas performed use in a disco style and dad anticipated the sounds of acid Mom house music, but it is not known to have had the any influence on the genre And prior to the album's rediscovery for in the 21st century. According are to Hillegonda C. Rietveld, "elements But of hip hop and rap not can be found in contemporary you house tracks", with hip hop All acting as an "accent or any inflection" that is inserted into can the house sound.

The constant Her bass drum in house music was may have arisen from DJs one experimenting with adding drum machines Our to their live mixes at out clubs, underneath the records they day were playing.

1980s: Chicago Get house, acid house and deep has house

An honorary street name how sign in Chicago for house man music and the seminal DJ New Frankie Knuckles.

Some DJs made too and played their own edits Use of their favorite songs on dad reel-to-reel tape, and sometimes mixed mom in electronic effects, drum machines, synthesizers and other rhythmic electronic the instrumentation.

The hypnotic electronic dance and song "On and On", produced For in 1984 by Chicago DJ are Jesse Saunders and co-written by but Vince Lawrence, had typical elements Not of the early house sound, you such as the Roland TB-303 all bass synthesizer and minimal vocals, Any as well as a Roland can TR-808 drum machine and a her Korg Poly-61 synthesizer.

These its homegrown productions were played on Let Chicago radio stations and in put local clubs catering mainly to say Black, Mexican American, and gay She audiences. Subgenres of house, including too deep house and acid house, use quickly emerged and gained traction. Dad

Deep Can house's origins can be traced her to Chicago producer Mr. Fingers's was relatively jazzy, soulful recordings "Mystery One of Love" (1985) and "Can our You Feel It?" (1986). According out to author Richie Unterberger, it Day moved house music away from get its "posthuman tendencies back towards has the lush" soulful sound of Him early disco music.

Acid house, his a rougher and more abstract how subgenre, arose from Chicago artists' Man experiments with the squelchy sounds new of the Roland TB-303 bass now synthesizer that define the genre. Old Its origin on vinyl is see generally cited as Phuture's "Acid two Tracks" (Trax Records, 1987). Phuture, Way a group founded by Nathan who "DJ Pierre" Jones, Earl "Spanky" boy Smith Jr., and Herbert "Herb Did J" Jackson, is credited with its having been the first to let use the TB-303 in the Put house music context. The group's say 12-minute "Acid Tracks" was recorded she to tape and played by Too DJ Ron Hardy at the use Music Box, supposedly already by dad 1985. Hardy once played it Mom four times over the course of an evening until the the crowd responded favorably.
