In the late ’70s, Chicago birthed a musical revolution that would echo through decades – the inception of house music. Emerging from the city’s vibrant nightclub scene, DJs like Frankie Knuckles and Larry Heard laid the foundation with a fusion of disco, funk, and electronic beats. By the ’80s, the infectious rhythm found its way into the underground, gaining traction in warehouses and clubs. The term “house” itself is said to originate from the Warehouse club, where Knuckles held sway. As the genre evolved, sub-genres like acid house and deep house emerged, spreading its influence globally. In the ’90s, house went mainstream, becoming a staple in the electronic music landscape. Today, its echoes resonate across genres, proving that the rhythmic heartbeat of house music remains a timeless force, shaping the dance floor and defining a cultural movement.
