Another week, another set of tunes. For this edit I decided to focus on three genres that are consistently growing in popularity. Just in case Deep House, Future House, and Future Bass all sound like different versions of the same thing to you, these are the primary differences.
The genre originated in the ’80s as a subgenre of house music, fusing elements of Chicago house, jazz, and soul often layered over ambient vocals. Tracks are generally between 120 and 125 beats per minute. Examples of deep house artists include Maya Jane Coles, Ben Pearce, Hot Since 82, and Dusky.
Future house is a direct descendant of deep house. Tracks have a slightly higher bpm but maintain a similar slow, ambient feel of deep house. The genre is essentially a fusion of deep house and drops/bass more typical of festival-style EDM. Examples of Future House artists include Tchami and Oliver Heldens.
Of the three genres, this one is the most up in the air and open for interpretation. Right now, future bass is characterized as any track with emphasis on a hard bass line that can’t be relegated to a single genre. Examples of future house artists include Odesza, Giraffage, and Cashmere Cat.
This playlist features some of all three. With that little lesson out of the way, here’s this week’s playlist!
