So...
I'm trying to educate my friend on house. And I can play her all my favourite tracks/djs/producers....But i thought you guys would be the best to help me make sure i'm correct on the specific Genres of house. If you could write what your favourite genre is..and what it sounds like...laymans terms so i can explain it...that would be SO COOL.

Thanks
have a great day ;)
Peace. Love. House.

Kinderhouse - accessible dance music for the remarkably underage, often using xylophones and barn noises. Popular guest vocalists include Raffi, Fred Penner, Elmo, and Simone Denny.

Handbag House - the CD you put on when nobody else from the House forum is around. Successful producers include Tim Patrick and Sage.

Intelligent Dance House: Made by people with accents and thick glasses. So unaccesable that it is dubbed "intelligent" lest we admit that it is either 1. shite or 2. we dont understand it. See also: Dance Music Not Made for Dancing.

in all seriousness, House music is all encompassing and doesn't need to be divided into genres to be enjoyed. If I limited myself by only listening to Chicago or to Deep House, I'd miss a shitload of quality music out there. I find genres are only good for trying to explain the fundamentals of a track to someone who hasn't heard it yet, but that's about it. Otherwise, it's all house to me.

Still, there is no downplaying the importance of distinctions in genre breakdowns.

Remember that bubble/diagram that explained (or tried to) electronic music and how genres are related to each other? If someone could find that it may be helpful.

Also: Triscuts are the best cracker out there.

It was on jahsonic, not sure if it's still there. It's good to illustrate the evolution of EDM, but I find genres make it to easy for someone to be stuck in their little niche of house music rather than exploring the musical diversity within house music and EDM in general.

The thing is...i love ALL types of house...
actually all types of electronic music.
I just think its really interesting to see the different types and where they come from.

EG. Chicago...what clubs started it...

Sometimes defining the different styles makes you more in tune with what you're really listening to.

good history of house music on www.jahsonic.org , and ishkur's guide is a relatively good place to start when looking for different types of EDM and how they evolved. Personally, I think there's a fair bit mislabelled in Ishkur's guide though.

Hip hop and house are a LOT closer than you'd think. Don't hate on hip-hop, it's done a lot to shape the house sound over the years.

Drury House: Commonly played by superstar DJ and fashionista Micheal "Mike E Mike" Drury. It usually features a lot of vocals, mostly female, over an overly big beat and chuggy bass.

If you're not a fan of hip-hop, then your only exposure to the genre is going to be a result of controversy, etc. The facts are that there is a LOT of hip-hop which has an entirely different message that is as popular as the bling-garbage you're referring to.

I wouldn't say it's evolving for the worse at all, there's been a whole shitload of incredible producers break the genre out of it's sample based roots and expanding the soundscape of what's considered hip-hop. While old skool will always hold it's own, let's not discount the stuff coming out from mainstream acts like Kanye, the Neptunes, and Missy or more undergound stuff like 9th Wonder.
