a basic of electronic genres
Generated out of disco music in New York and Chicago in the mid-1980's, by 1990, house had blitzkrieged Europe, revolutionizing and spawning modern-era club culture in the process. House epitomizes electronic dance grooves, and is probably more mainstream and widely accepted than any other of type of DJ music today. Characterized by groovy 4/4 beat tempos, and swinging upbeat harmonies, house can cover a lot of territory, from disco house, to acid house to Latin and French house, it is perhaps the most versatile of all electronic music genres, ranging in style from deep, to hardcore to progressive.
