House music is about love, and lots of hip hop is about hate and intolerance, so in that respect, it's not good at all.

WHAT DOES HOUSE MUSIC MEAN IN ENGLISH?

House music

House music is a genre of electronic dance music that originated in Chicago in the early 1980s. It was initially popularized circa 1984 in Chicago, but beginning in 1985, it fanned out to other major cities across North and South America, as well as Europe and later Australia. Early house music commercial success in Europe saw songs such as "Pump Up The Volume" by MARRS, "House Nation" by House Master Boyz and the Rude Boy of House, "Theme from S'Express" by S'Express and "Doctorin' the House" by Coldcut in the pop charts. Since the early to mid-1990s, house music has been infused in mainstream pop and dance music worldwide. Early house music was generally dance-based music characterized by repetitive 4/4 beats, rhythms mainly provided by drum machines, off-beat hi-hat cymbals, and synthesized basslines. While house displayed several characteristics similar to disco music, it was more electronic and minimalistic, and the repetitive rhythm of house was more important than the song itself.

3 QUOTES WITH «HOUSE MUSIC»

Famous quotes and sentences with the word House music.
1
Avicii
House music originated in America, and it has always been around, but I guess it just got a tighter hold on Europe and other parts of the world.
2
Avicii
Originality is definitely missing from EDM. There are people looking for it and exploring but I feel it's so big now it is just getting milked. House music is losing all its melody as it becomes more about how dirty the drop is and how energetic it is. It loses touch with what music really is.
