Four-on-the-floor beats, infectious grooves, a soulful vocal here and there. You know what we’re talking about; it’s house music.
House music is a genre of electronic music that has a characteristic ‘four-on-the-floor’ beat and a tempo of 120-130 beats per minute. This music originated in the deep underground party clubs of Chicago and from there, it simply spread like a wildfire. This groovy genre is the oldest type of electronic music and still, it is the crown jewel of the electronic scene. This music was inspired by disco music in the late 70s and 80s; artists discovered what magic drumbeats and baselines could create. The disco era ended, and the house music culture started!
House music is known to be one of the earliest forms of electronic music as we know it today. It originated in the black neighbourhoods of Chicago in the 1980s and young musicians started experimenting with disco music, using instruments like the Roland TR-808s and other drum machines.
One of the particular characteristics of house music that make it distinguishable is the steady four-to-the-floor beat. Just like disco music, house is driven by a prominent kick drum typically drawn from well-known drum kits like the Roland TR-808 and the Roland-909. The structure typically incorporates open hi-hats on the offbeat, i.e., between the kick drums with snares or claps on every second and fourth beat. You can find the unique four-to-the-floor beat of house music in hundreds of tracks. Additionally, artists further experiment with adding deep bass lines, synth-generated riffs, and occasional funk-inspired and soulful vocals to add further power and majesty to the house record.
