House music is a genre of electronic dance music that originated in Chicago in the early 1980s. It was influenced by disco, funk, soul, and synth-pop, and characterized by a repetitive four-on-the-floor beat, syncopated basslines, and catchy vocals. House music became popular in the US and Europe, especially in the UK, where it spawned various subgenres such as acid house, deep house, and garage house.
House music also spread to China in the late 1980s and early 1990s, where it was introduced by foreign DJs and musicians who performed in clubs and raves. House music was initially seen as a novelty and a form of cultural exchange, but it soon developed a local fan base and a distinctive style. Chinese house music incorporated elements of traditional Chinese music, such as folk instruments, melodies, and scales, as well as influences from other genres such as hip hop, techno, and trance. Chinese house music also reflected the social and political changes that occurred in China during the post-Mao era, such as the rise of consumerism, urbanization, and globalization.
House music is still a popular and influential genre in China today, with many local and international artists producing and performing it. Some of the most notable Chinese house music producers and DJs include Mickey Zhang, Yang Bing, Ou Yang, Weng Weng, Elvis T, MIIIA, Jasmine Li, and Eric Lee. House music has also contributed to the development of other genres of electronic music in China, such as dubstep, drum and bass, and electro. House music is widely regarded as a symbol of creativity, diversity, and freedom in the Chinese electronic music scene.
