History of house music

House music started in Chicago Southside in 1977 when a brand new club opened in that area called the Warehouse which eventually gave house music its name. The owner “Frankie knuckles” who opened the club mixed old disco classic songs with an brand new euro beat pop beat.

House was similar to disco music however it was more deeper and rawer and rather than disco it was designed to make people dance. Synthesised sounds were introduced that had never been heard before also dub effects were first introduce that again had never been heard before.

House music did not have its origins just in america but also the popularity of disco based sounds, english electronic pop and european music helped house music become known and played by many clubs.

House music had the ability to unite people across culture and ethnicities were derivative of what was happening in america at the time when house music was first introduced.
