House Music

This music genre originated in the city of Chicago, USA. The word “house” itself is taken from the name of a nightclub in the city, The Warehouse. Genre House is heavily influenced by Soul, R & B, and Funk elements that are a variation of disco music. House music itself is a genre in music EDM most widely accepted by the public. Almost all Top 40 music is influenced by house music.

Characteristic of house music is upbeat tempo, groovy and sometimes dominated by piano chords with tempo about 126-128 beats per minute (BPM). Because of its popularity, this genre has its own distinct sub-genres:   

  • Acid House: House music with little trance and techno influence. Tempo is slightly faster than music of the same genre in general. Let me understand more, try to hear the track from James “Jack Rabbit” Martin this.

  • Dutch House: from its name already seen if this sub-genre came from the Netherlands. Dutch House itself is one of the sub-genre that became popular, even in Indonesia as well. Let me know more, listen to the tracks from Hardwell – Spaceman and Chuckie & Junxterjack – Make Some Noise. 

  • Progressive House: The hallmark of this sub-genre is the increasingly musical tempo, almost similar to trance music. Try listening to the tracks of CLMD – Black Eyes & Blue or Calvin Harris – Summer. 

  • Deep House: this is the most chill sub-genre. Deep House music is often played in cafes or clubs that have a relaxed atmosphere. Try to hear Noir & Haze – Around, Oliver Helden – Gecko, and Faul & Wad Ad VS Pnau – Changes.
