Typehus? Types of House

Posted on Updated on

DOMO er “all about HOUSE!” – men House er ikke ligefrem en præcis definition. For ligesom at holde lidt styr på hvad vi taler om, så bruger vi – DOMO – følgende sub-genrer når vi sammensætter vores sets.


Disse sub-genrer burger vi også på HOUSE OF DOMO, så du kan finde den genre du bedst kan li’ – og læse om den via vores “Tags” i højre side. Smart, ikke? ;-)

Lidt mere om genrer

Hvis du lige vil vide lidt mere, så kommer der lidt detaljer herunder;


Garage music or garage house, is a subgenre of electronic dance music and is classified by some sources in the modern day as being a subgenre of house music. It was developed in the Paradise Garage nightclub in New York City and club Zanzibar in New Jersey, USA, during the early-to-mid 1980s.[1] It technically predates the creation of house music (Chicago house) and it is stated by some sources to be relatively closer to Disco than other Electronic Dance styles.[2] However Garage has eventually been grouped as a variant of the broader term “house”. DJs playing this genre include and Tony Humphries, Larry Levan and Junior Vasquez.[3][4]

Garage music is often confused with speed garage or its parent genre UK garage, but although influenced by garage music, these are different genres.


Diva house or handbag house is an anthemic sub-genre of house music that became most popular in gay clubs during the second half of the 1980s. It is known for booming unisex vocals, sometimes sampled from other recordings. Such samples come from 1970s soul, disco, gospel recordings and even show tunes sung by people like Bette Midler and other gay icons. This bombastic genre can include songs performed by dance specialists (see artists) as well as club remixes of pop songs by soul singers like Mariah Carey, Patti LaBelle, and Whitney Houston.[1] In gay clubs, the subgenre is viewed as a “cult” genre determining gay dance music.

The name “handbag house” comes from the notion of a group of female club-goers dancing around a pile of their handbags.[2] With popularization of open gay culture in the early 1980s, “diva” was the word that bound house music to gay dance scene, which was previously only defined by some italo disco compositions.

One of the latest examples of handbag, which somewhat became iconic to gay clubs, in the song Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now) by C+C Music Factory.

Deep House

Deep house is known for complex melody, use of unrelated chromatic chords underlying most sequences, and a soul, ambient, or lounge vibe to the vocals (if any). In the early compositions (1988—89), influences of jazz music were most frequently brought out by using more complex chords than simple triads (7ths, 9ths, 13ths, suspensions, alterations) which are held for many bars and give compositions a slightly dissonant feel. The use of vocals became more common in deep house than in many other forms of house music. Sonic qualities include soulful vocals (if vocals are included), slow and concentrated dissonant melodies, smooth, stylish, and chic demeanor.[citation needed] Deep house music rarely reaches a climax, but lingers on as a comfortable relaxing sound.

Tech House

Tech house is a subgenre of house music that mixes elements of techno with house music. The term tech house developed as a shorthand record store name for a category of electronic dance music that combined musical aspects of techno, such as “rugged basslines” and “steely beats,” with the harmonies and grooves of progressive house. The music originally had a clean and minimal production style that was associated with techno from Detroit and the UK. In the mid to late 1990s a scene developed in England around club nights such as Heart & Soul, and Wiggle, the latter run by Terry Francis and Nathan Cole. Other DJs and artists associated with the sound at that time included Charles Webster, Bushwacka!, Dave Angel, Herbert, Funk D’Void, Ian O’Brien, Derrick Carter, and Stacey Pullen. By late 2000 London nightclub The End, owned by the former Shamen rapper Richard West (Mr C) and Laylo Paskin, was considered the home of tech house in the UK.

Acid House

Acid house is a sub-genre of house music developed around the mid-1980s by DJs from Chicago, Illinois. The defining feature of a ‘squelching’ bass sound was produced using the Roland TB-303 electronic synthesizer-sequencer. Acid house spread to the United Kingdom and continental Europe, where it was played by DJs in the acid house and later rave scenes. By the late 1980s, Acid house had moved into the British mainstream, where it had some influence on pop and dance styles.


By the early 1990s house was experiencing a number of fusions from other styles. When the four on the floor pattern was blended with polyrhythms tribal house began.[2]

Tribal house rose to prominence off the releases of New York labels Tribal America Records and, to a lesser extent, Strictly Rhythm Records. The music was a staple in New York’s most prominent clubs such as the Sound Factory and Roxy NYC. Tribal America Records’ infamy within this sub-genre stemmed from their globally popular releases by Danny Tenaglia, Junior Vasquez, Deep Dish, Eric Kupper (aka K-Scope) and Murk amongst others. This popularity led to the formation of a UK sub-label, Tribal United Kingdom. The label also helped launch European artists Farley & Heller, Salt City Orchestra, The Underground Sound Of Lisbon and others who produced in this style.

Nu-Disco / Disco

Nu-disco or Nu-house is a 21st-century dance music genre associated with a renewed interest in 1970s and early 1980s disco, mid-1980s Italo disco, and the synthesizer-heavy Euro disco and P-Funk aesthetics.

Progressive House

Progressive house is a style (subgenre) of house music. House music is a type of electronic dance music (EDM). The progressive house style emerged in the early 1990s. It initially developed in the United Kingdom as a natural progression of American and European house music of the late 1980s.

Minimal / MicroHouse

Microhouse has its roots in the minimal techno, bitpop (both developed in the early 90’s), and house (developed in the early-80’s) genres of music. Its first echoes appeared in a glitch album by German experimental artist Oval, in 1993. Like many contemporary electronic genres, Microhouse has many influences, most notably techno and the “click and pop” garage house that has emerged from Yorkshire Bleeps and Bass (or “Bleep”), bitpop and minimal techno. Contrasting with tech house, which is often thought of as ‘house with techno melodic elements’, microhouse is more aptly described as ‘housey minimal techno’ – a marriage of the funky and groovy backroom house elements with bitpop and the driving, repetitive sound of techno.

The first microhouse track to gain mainstream popularity by a non-glitch artist was Isolée‘s 1999 anthem, ‘Beau Mot Plage’. However, microhouse did not begin to rapidly build in popularity until the early 2000s with the advent of record labels such as Kompakt, Perlon, Spectral Sound, Fabric, Telegraph and Force Inc. The term microhouse is usually credited to music journalist and DJ Philip Sherburne, writing for the magazine The Wire in 2001, to describe, according to Stelfox, “the spectral, hypnotic interpretation of classic Chicago grooves emerging on labels such as Perlon, Kompakt, Playhouse, Ongaku, Klang Elektronik and the Mille Plateaux family of imprints-most notably Force Tracks and Force Inc- at the turn of the millennium.
