History Of House Music

historyWhen you tune in your radio, you get bombarded with a wide range of music. There are the slow ones like ballad and country music. The fast ones include techno, rap and disco music. Among the many genres, there is one that is becoming very popular. It is called house music.

This genre started in Chicago back in the 1980s. People got bored dancing the same tunes every night. Even the DJ’s themselves were not pleased when they play the same record every night. Because of this, they decided to personalize the existing records they have. People liked the idea, and immediately it became popular. The DJ’s realized the potential in the music. They created their own house music albums.

With its popularity rising, the music spread from Chicago to Detroit. Within a few years, it has crossed the oceans and spread over the United Kingdom. With a lot of people of different cultures creating their own style, subgenres have emerged. The seven top subgenres of house music are:

  1. Classic House Mix
  2. Deep House Mix
  3. Acid House Mix
  4. Progressive House Mix
  5. Tech House Mix
  6. Electro House Mix
  7. Tropical House Mix

A large part of the planet is now enjoying house music. Because of worldwide acceptance, singers started creating albums that are in favor of this music. In the 1990s different artists like Janet Jackson, Tina Turner, Whitney Houston, Kylie Minogue and Bananarama blended their songs to house music.

Today the music is quite popular in mainstream pop and clubs. The use of new effects and sounds have opened a new level for music lovers. By the year 2000’s Stardust and Daft Punk combined the soulful idea of classic house with state of the art production and obscure funk melodies. This started the standard for all house music.
