La house music, ou simplement house, est un courant musical lancé au début des années 1980 à Chicago. Originellement liée à l’histoire des disc-jockeys, son nom provient du Warehouse, club de Chicago où officiait le DJ Frankie Knuckles. La house est constituée d’un rythme minimal, d’une ligne de basse proche du funk, à ceci s’ajoutent souvent des voix, samplées ou non.

House music is a genre of electronic dance music created by club DJs and music producers in Chicago in the early 1980s. Early house music was generally 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, which preceded and influenced it, as both were DJ and record producer-created dance music, house was more electronic and minimalistic. The mechanical, repetitive rhythm of house was one of its main components. Many house songs were instrumental, with no vocals; some had singing throughout the song with lyrics; and some had singing but no actual words.
