House music is a style of electronic dance music that was developed by dance club DJs that were strongly influenced by 1970's soul and funk infused Disco music. House music takes disco's use of a prominent bass drum on every beat and developed a new style by mixing in a heavy electronic synthesizer bassline, electronic drums, electronic effects, funk and pop samples and reverb- or delay-enhanced vocals.
Producers layer sampled drum sounds to achieve a more complex sound, filling out the audio spectrum and tailoring the mix for large club sound systems. House music is uptempo music for dancing and has a tempo range of between 118 and 135 bpm. Producers use many different sound sources for bass sounds in house music, from continuous, repeating electronically-generated lines sequenced on a synthesizer to studio recordings or samples of live electric bassists, or simply filtered-down samples from whole stereo recordings.
Electronically-generated sounds and samples of recordings from genres such as jazz, blues and synth pop are often added to the foundation of the drum beat and synth bass line. House songs may also include disco or soul-style and gospel vocals and additional Latin music influenced percussion.
