Introduction of House Music

House music is a genre of electronic dance music that originated in the 1980s in Chicago, Illinois. It is characterized by its use of a four-on-the-floor beat, synthesizers, and electronic drum machines, as well as prominent basslines and vocals that often feature repetitive phrases and a strong emphasis on rhythm. House music is often associated with the club scene and has been popularized by DJs and producers who create and play the music at clubs and other venues around the world. It has also been influential in the development of other electronic dance music genres such as techno, trance, and garage.

Alessandro Pierozzi & JØAK Interview on Nagamag

Alessandro Pierozzi & JØAK
Interview

Nagamag:
Which are the genres that describe your music style better?

Alessandro Pierozzi & JØAK:
Alessandro’s answer: As a music producer, I always try to blend organic and electronic sounds, always trying to combine the analog and virtual worlds of music. If I define this with genres, those probably would be in the line of Melodic House/Techno, Progressive, and Deep house, but always open to experimenting.
JØAK’s answer: It depends on the mood or what I want to transmit, in this released song called ”alive” contains a lot of house & progressive roots with a powerful melodic hymn to wrap the mind in a place that we want to enjoy and be honest with our thoughts with the message of the song.

Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

Alessandro Pierozzi & JØAK:
Alessandro’s answer: I’ve been making music for the past decade. As long as I can remember, I have always been in love with creating new things, and with music was love at first sight. I’ve been learning as I go, always trying to work with people who can help me grow as an artist, as well as a person. It all started back in 2014 with Kelders, in which we had a long run together, and collected beautiful song creations and forever-lasting memories. This year I decided to launch my personal project, and I am more motivated than ever, always giving it all of my energy to achieve as much as possible, and complete my goals as a music producer/Dj.
JØAK’s answer: My career has been a whole new adventure in the last 15 years working on my music. I have experienced many genres but in the last years I have been progressing from doing EDM to just only make music, I don’t want to pigeonhole myself into only one genre. I just want to make what I feel in the moment and enjoy the ride being sincere with my future audience.

Nagamag:
Do you remember your first connection of love to music that was the right impact to be a music artist now?

Alessandro Pierozzi & JØAK:
Alessandro’s answer: One of my best friends ever, back in 2013 showed me a track by Deadmau5, and I completely fell in love at that exact moment. Ever since that year, I’ve been either behind the decks or at my home studio trying to create as much music as I can.
JØAK’s answer: I don’t remember exactly the moment but every day I fall a little more in love with music, and that impulses me to keep creating new pieces all the time.

Nagamag:
Many artists listen to genres that they are not producing music for. Which track is your favorite that is NOT similar to yours?

Alessandro Pierozzi & JØAK:
Mac Miller Good News

Nagamag:
Of Course Nagamag would love to listen also which is the track from a similar artist you admire?

Alessandro Pierozzi & JØAK:

Some House subgenres

There are many subgenres of house music, each with its own unique characteristics and influences. Some common subgenres of house music include:

Deep house: A subgenre of house that originated in the 1980s and is characterized by its use of complex chord structures, smooth basslines, and a relaxed, atmospheric sound.

Tech house: A subgenre of house that combines elements of techno and house music and is characterized by its use of intricate, percussive rhythms and a strong emphasis on production techniques.

Acid house: A subgenre of house that originated in the 1980s and is characterized by its use of the Roland TB-303 synthesizer, which produces a distinctive, squelchy sound known as the “acid” sound.

Tribal house: A subgenre of house that originated in the 1990s and is characterized by its use of percussion-heavy rhythms and a strong tribal influence.

Electro house: A subgenre of house that originated in the 2000s and is characterized by its use of electronic and synthesized sounds, as well as heavy basslines and a fast tempo.

Chicago house: A subgenre of house that originated in Chicago, Illinois and is characterized by its use of a four-on-the-floor beat, electronic drum machines, and synthesizers.

Funky house: A subgenre of house that combines elements of funk, soul, and disco with a four-on-the-floor beat and electronic production techniques.

Minimal house: A subgenre of house that originated in the 2000s and is characterized by its use of stripped-back, minimalist production techniques and a focus on subtle changes in sound and rhythm.

Progressive house: A subgenre of house that originated in the 1990s and is characterized by its use of complex, evolving melodies and a focus on building tension and releasing it through the use of breakdowns and buildups.

Soulful house: A subgenre of house that combines elements of soul, funk, and disco with a four-on-the-floor beat and electronic production techniques.

Bass house: A subgenre of house that originated in the 2010s and is characterized by its use of heavy basslines, distorted synths, and a focus on high-energy dancefloor appeal.

Jackin’ house: A subgenre of house that originated in Chicago and is characterized by its use of a four-on-the-floor beat, funky basslines, and a strong emphasis on rhythm.

Ghetto house: A subgenre of house that originated in Chicago and is characterized by its use of raw, stripped-back production techniques and a focus on bass-heavy, percussive rhythms.

These are just a few examples of the many subgenres of house music that exist. Many house producers and DJs draw from a wide range of influences when creating their music, and the lines between different subgenres can be blurry at times.

The most used instruments in House Music

In house music, electronic instruments and production techniques are often used to create the distinctive sound of the genre. Some common electronic instruments and equipment that are used in the production of house music include:

Synthesizers: House music often makes use of synthesizers to create a wide range of electronic sounds, including basslines, melodies, and percussion.

Drum machines: House music often makes use of drum machines to create the characteristic four-on-the-floor beat that is a hallmark of the genre.

Samplers: House music producers often use samplers to manipulate and incorporate sounds from other sources, such as vocals, percussion, or other instrumentation, into their tracks.

Digital audio workstations (DAWs): House music producers often use digital audio workstations to create, edit, and arrange their tracks.

DJ controllers: House music DJs often use DJ controllers to mix and manipulate tracks in real-time.

Effects processors: House music producers and DJs often use effects processors, such as reverb, delay, and filters, to shape the sound of their tracks.

Vocals: vocals are often used in house music. In many cases, vocals are used to provide a catchy, repetitive phrase or hook that helps to drive the rhythm of the track and create a memorable listening experience. House music vocals are often processed with effects such as reverb, delay, and filtering to give them a distinctive sound. In some cases, house music producers will sample vocals from other sources, such as classic soul or disco tracks, and incorporate them into their own tracks. House music vocals can be performed by a solo artist or a group, and can be sung or spoken in a variety of styles. The lyrics in house music can vary widely depending on the specific track and the artist who created it. Some house music tracks may have lyrics that focus on themes such as love, relationships, or personal experiences, while others may have more abstract or spiritual themes. In some cases, the lyrics of a house music track may be secondary to the overall atmosphere or groove of the track, and may be used more as a means of creating a particular mood or feeling rather than conveying a specific message. In other cases, the lyrics of a house music track may be more prominent and may be used to convey a specific message or theme. Ultimately, the meaning of the lyrics in a house music track will depend on the specific artist and the context in which the track was created.

In addition to these electronic instruments, some house music producers and DJs may also incorporate live instrumentation, such as keyboards, drums, or guitar, into their tracks.
