It's House Music!

"Not everybody understands HOUSE music.... It's a spiritual thing, a body thing a soul thing...."

House music is getting more and more popular throughout the world. Too often house music is lumped together with trance and other forms of electronic music. I'm a big house music fan; about 90% of what I listen to is pure house tunes. I prefer house music not only due to it's sound and rhythm but the fact that it seldom has lyrics and when it does it is usually a positive message, unlike hip-hop for example.


I just wanted to see if any other anetters share my taste for dj's like Steve Lawler, Carl Cox, Deep dish, Eric Morillo, Danny Tenaglia. And if you are a house fan what "sub-genre" do you like? progressive, tribal, funky, deep,vocal?

Yeah I like house music I have to say, the names you're giving me are very good (normally when a topic on a.net is about electronical/dance music you get a lot of crappy names like Scooter or Special D).
To be honest, I'm not that experienced in the 'pure' housemusic, although I have almost all the Global Underground cd's in my collection, it's such an amazing label.
I like the progressive sounds from Sasha and Digweed.

I'm more into electro and (minimal) techno. Here are some names I listen to:
Richie Hawtin, Ellen Allien, Apparat, Anthony Rother, Michael Mayer, well my list goes on and on (there are just so many important and interesting names). For me, Germany is the place were all the magic happens (Kraftwerk!).

This is my last.fm-account, where you can see what kind of music I listen (well, it's not really that interesting  wink  Wink

What kind of Indie (little bit off-topic). Because I happen to be a big fan of Britpop/rock too. I'm a huge fan of ¡Forward, Russia! and I also like Bromheads Jacket, Larrikin Love, The Kooks, The Noisettes, The Long Blondes (and the list keeps on and on...hahaha  wink  )

Seriously though, here in the U.S. it is gaining popularity. I like most forms of "electronic" music and I have turned my friends onto it as well.

Yeah I love house music. Electronic house too. I have a friend in lebanon who's a electronic house dj - well was now he ran off to paris... No more clubbing here
He's my favorite DJ

House music is hard to understand. I am more with electronic/housey music... I have trouble enjoying the "classical" house music for more then a couple of tracks, you know these mixes go on for hours without any progression whatsoever in the mood.

What a waste for this country.. there was so much happening here. Whether in my gouvernement or their gouvernement, all a bunch of self absorbed idiots who dont know how to enjoy life.

Check out the track that I used for this video:

Sorry, couldn't resist. I've been dancing and clubbing for years, albeit, not as much now, as I'm getting on with age.. LOL (32). Did the E thing in the gay clubs when it first came about, and have gone through douzines of dancing shoes. In Toronto, there was Fly.. .. the club where all the big circuit dj's would come. Tom Stephan, Hex Hector, Victor Calderon, Manny Lehman, Tracy Young, the list goes on... ahh.. it's the music which speaks to me, without having to use any bloody words or bla bla.. just beats and chords. Brilliant!

LOL, I still venture into fly once in a blue moon, although there haven't been any big names there for a while.

There have been some new places that have opened up in Toronto that cater to house music, ie. Sonic, Footwork.

You're absolutely right.. Fly had its day in the sun, and what a day it was!  Wink

It's a great space, but the whole "circuit" scene is in its demise, and the mixed "scene" is much more prevelant in TO. Sonic, I've never been, but was there when it was still Boa. Great space. Footwork haven't gone to either. I'm in a relationship these days, so the wild days of past, remain in the past. LOL... (don't get me wrong, I still steal the odd crazy, sketch night out! I must!!! LOL)

I'm not into house music per se but do love the house influences in the progressive scene. One of my favourite DJs at the moment is a guy called Michael Paessler ( http://www.michael-paessler.de/ ) and his 'Progressive Elements' collection. His latest set can be downloaded here.

Definitely worth a listen  thumbsup

GU is my favourite collection ATM. I used to love 'Euphoria' but it was bought by MoS and so have kept well away...

Flight 643 is something of a classic but I think Tiesto has really become a sellout. He played live at Disneyland Paris for christ's sake  biggrin

I love electronic music, specially lounge, house, chillout and ambient. The great thing about this kind of music is that you have many exponents from every corner of the world.
I recommend http://www.di.fm/ to listen to all these genres and many more. Enjoy, its commercial free.
