So if you’re a novice to EDM you’re probably wondering what exactly is house music anyway? Let’s explore…

The Technical Definition:

The common element of house music is a prominent kick drum on every beat also known as a four-on-the-floor which is a steady, uniformly accented beat in 4/4 time in which the bass drum is hit on every beat (1, 2, 3, 4) in common time.

Pioneer of House


House  may have its origin from a Chicago nightclub called The Warehouse which existed from 1977 to 1983. It was  frequented primarily by gay black and Latino men, who came to dance to disco music played by the club’s resident DJ, Frankie Knuckles, and then followed him to his new club, The Powerhouse, in 1983.
