House

 

A genre of electronic dance music that originated in Chicago in the early 1980s. Early house music was generally dance-based music characterized by repetitive 4/4 beats, rhythms mainly provided by drum machines,[2] off-beat hi-hat cymbals, and synthesized basslines. Compared to disco, house music is more electronic and minimalistic,[2] and the repetitive rhythm of house was more important than the song itself.
