GENRE: ___House___

House in its most concentrated definition is electronic music heavily based around a four on the floor feel, usually incorporating off beat hihat sounds. Music changes and evolves. In my view they are all house. The old stuff is just classic house


Although if we are talking about classic house then yes- Auxy doesn’t really cater to the necessary samples and sounds that well

I agree with all of the above @Southborne. Excellent explanation

I’ve created a HOUSE MUSIC challenge for March. Check it out…

I agree with @NickElle on this one.

I actually get quite mad when people refer to EDM as house… :rage:
I’m not sure they can co-exist in a thread peacefully…?


If you guys can agree and write up a way to seperate them out without confusing people, then I’ll do it.

I think of EDM as being “Electronic Dance Music” which encompasses a wide range of genres.


That’s fair man- I agree that edm has nothing to do with house. Things like bigroom house and electro house don’t really have much to do with house but are edm at its finest. Kinda funny how stuff gets labeled. Respect what nick and yourself are saying tho


Well, I guess I like EDM house too.

Fixed it for you. :wink:


Well… What about Basement Jaxx? Or is that just EDM?

Some great tracks there.

A couple more…

And a quick nod to one of my fave listens at the time…
(…being a regular at the MoS back in the day)

Best I stop now, or I’ll never stop.
(House if the genre that tempted me away from Hip-Hop.)

Halcyon days, indeed.

Ah house, my favorite genre :3

Working on my track for The HOUSE MUSIC Challenge and stumbled across this:

A classic house track, built with such limited gear.
Really inspiring.

It just goes to show how less can really equate to so much more. The last 30 seconds or so are very telling, when you have a bajillion plug-ins and a ton of hardware it can be too overwhelming, maybe it’s too many options?

Great vid thanks for sharing! :+1:
