The Save House Music Legacy is a blog about the history and future of house music.


In the early 1900s, a new type of music began to emerge in the United States. This music was called jazz, and it would go on to change the course of American music forever. Jazz is a genre of music that is characterized by its unique blend of African and European musical styles. Jazz quickly rose to popularity and became one of the most popular genres of music in America.

However, jazz was not without its critics. Many people saw jazz as a threat to traditional American values. In the 1920s, a nation-wide campaign was launched to try to suppress jazz music. This campaign was successful in many ways, and jazz became less popular in the following years.

In the 1940s, a new generation of musicians began to revive interest in jazz music. These musicians were known as the beboppers, and they helped to create a new style of jazz known as bebop. Bebop was very different from earlier styles of jazz, and it was not well received by the older generation of jazz musicians. However, bebop soon became very popular with young people, and it helped to launch the careers of many famous jazz musicians such as Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie.

Jazz has continued to evolve since then, and it remains one of the most popular genres of music in America today. The Legacy Museum is dedicated to preserving the history of jazz and its impact on American culture.

What is House Music?

House music is a genre of electronic music created by club DJs and music producers in Chicago in the early 1980s. It was initially popularized in Chicago clubs such as The Warehouse and The Music Box. House music quickly spread to other US cities such as New York, Detroit, and Los Angeles.


House music is a style of electronic dance music that originated in Chicago in the early 1980s. Its name is derived from the fact that it was originally created by DJs who were playing at clubs and parties in people’s homes. House music is characterized by a 4/4 time signature, a steady beat, and an emphasis on melody and synth basslines. It often features samples from other genres of music, such as disco or funk, and sometimes incorporates elements of hip hop.


The basic elements of house music are:
– a 4/4 time signature
– a tempo of 120 to 125 beats per minute (BPM)
– a “groove” created by basslines, drums, and percussion tracks
– chord progressions that are often repetitive
– a style of composition that is based on improvisation

House music is often created with software programs such as Ableton Live, Logic Pro, or FL Studio. The most important element of house music is the “groove,” which is created by the bassline, drums, and percussion tracks. The groove is what makes people want to dance. The other elements of house music (chord progressions, melodies, etc.) are often secondary to the groove.

The Decline of House Music

House music is a genre of electronic dance music that emerged in the late 1980s. The genre was created by DJs and producers from Chicago’s underground club scene. House music quickly became popular in the clubs of Europe and North America. However, in recent years, the popularity of house music has declined.

The Mainstream Media

The mainstream media has played a significant role in the decline of house music. In the past, house music was widely covered by the media and enjoyed a great deal of popularity. However, in recent years, coverage of house music has declined dramatically. This is due in part to the fact that mainstream media outlets have been increasingly focused on other genres of music, such as pop and hip-hop. As a result, many people are no longer exposed to house music and are unaware of its existence.

In addition, the mainstream media has often portrayed house music in a negative light. This is likely due to the fact that house music is often associated with drug use and parties. As a result, many people have come to view house music as something that is harmful or dangerous.

The decline in coverage of house music by the mainstream media has had a significant impact on the genre. It has led to a decrease in popularity and has made it harder for new artists to gain exposure. As a result, the future of house music is uncertain.

The Lack of Innovation

In recent years, there has been a lack of innovation in the house music genre. A lot of the same sounds and styles are being recycle and overused. There is a need for new producers to come in and create something fresh and exciting. Otherwise, the genre will continue to decline in popularity.

The Revival of House Music

House music was created in the early 1980s by DJs and producers in Chicago. It was influenced by disco, gospel, and soul music. House music is a type of electronic dance music that is characterized by a 4/4 time signature and a tempo of 120-130 beats per minute. The revival of house music has been influenced by the popularity of EDM and the rise of technology.

The New Generation of Producers

A new generation of producers is helping to revive the legacy of house music. These artists are infusing the genre with fresh ideas and a new sound, while still paying homage to the original style of house.

One of the most exciting things about this resurgence of house music is that it is attracting fans from all over the world. Young people who were not even alive when house music was first created are now some of its biggest fans. This is a testament to the enduring power of the genre and its ability to connect with people on a deep level.

The new generation of house producers is giving the genre a much-needed shot in the arm. By infusing it with fresh ideas and a new sound, they are helping to ensure that house music will continue to be a force in the world of electronic dance music for years to come.

The New Sound of House Music

In the early 2000s, a new sound began to emerge in the world of house music. This new sound was a combination of the traditional deep house sound with elements of garage and grime. The new sound was championed by a new generation of producers and DJs who were looking to take the genre in a new direction.

The new sound of house music was characterized by its use of sampled vocals, often taken from pop songs, as well as its use of synthesizers and drum machines. This new sound was christened “UK Funky” by DJ/producer Terror Danjah.

UK Funky quickly gained popularity in the UK underground scene and soon found its way into the mainstream with hits like “In Da Club” by Groove Armada and “My House” by Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs.

In recent years, there has been a resurgence of interest in house music, with many DJs and producers returning to the genre’s roots. This has led to a renewed interest in deep house and techno, as well as in the newer sounds of UK Funky and garage.
