House music is a sub genre of EDM (Electronic Dance Music) that was created in the early 80s by club DJs in Chicago. The Warehouse and The Paradise Garage are the iconic clubs where house did its first steps. This genre directly comes from disco except that the sounds used are deeper and rawer.
Take a listen at this famous early house track that you might know :
This genre has always aspired to break down the barriers of race and sexual preferences. Everybody was let in those clubs and could listen and dance to it, which was a breakthrough because other clubs were still segregating people.
UK garage is a very interesting sub genre. When people were looking for Sunday morning parties in the US, records were played fast to keep the crowd dancing and that’s how UK garage was born.
A good example of UK garage could be this:
Fun fact —
Dubstep was created due to a mistake by a producer that didn’t put the snare at the right time when he wanted to create UK garage.
To hear what early dubstep would sound like :
Basically, every sample that is available is in the same key (it’s in Gm for those who are interested). Writing and choosing samples in the same key was the most important thing to make everything work and sound good together. Even though it doesn’t do everything, it helped a lot.
As for the sounds, most of them are pretty neutral. There is no hard melodic riff that would be hard to match with other bass or vocals. It’s mostly chopped chords with different flavours and not a lot of melodic variety.
If you were wondering why you couldn’t put different melodies together, or different bass together… It is due to the fact that otherwise, frequencies would crush together and would’t be able to live in harmony. It would sound distorted and awful.
