Publisher's Summary

House is the first descendant of disco. While Black and Hispanic communities were jamming and party DJs spinning records, a new birth of rhythm gave way to music lovers from Chicago and New York in the form known as house music.
Developed in Chicago's underground dance club culture in the early 1980s, house music began as DJs spinning in the gay subculture altered the pop-like disco dance tracks to give them a more mechanical beat and deeper bass lines. As well, these DJs began to mix synth pop, dub reggae, rap, and even jazz into their tracks.
The first pioneers of house music were Chicago DJ and record producer Frankie Knuckles, Chicago acid-house electronic music group Phuture, Tennessee DJ and producer Mr. Fingers, and US-born, UK-based singer Kym Mazelle.
House music quickly spread to other American cities such as Detroit, New York City, Baltimore, and Newark - all of which developed their own regional house scenes. Today, house music is worldwide and continues to dominate most club scenes and has expanded beyond its subculture beginning.

Great Music History!

I loved Eric Reese’s history of hip hop book. This one did not disappoint! Most of us have probably danced to house music at a nightclub but never thought or learned about its history. Well here’s your chance! I recommend this book to all music lovers!

Learning is something that happens everyday.

I recieved this audiobook at my request for my own unbiased review.

This is a standalone quick listen however there are a lot of facts and a lot of information within this short book. If you have not read The History of Hip Hop then you should and then listen to this. There are not a hand in hand books however you will learn that a lot of the music that came played off one another.

House music is something that I am not interested in because it is just way to much however this book explains the evolution of what we know today. There were some songs that I thought were disco however listening to this showed me why certain artist and what it means to be an artist. There are a number of artists mentioned that no one really knows about and that I sad. I am glad that Eric Reese is keeping the memory of these artists alive.

I enjoyed the narrator even though he is talking to me like a professor and not just a friend who seems genuinely interested in what he is reading. His voice just makes me think of a professor I had who would talk to me as though I knew nothing. I think he has a clear concise voice but still very monotone.
