Electro house

The House music is a musical current which was born in the 80’s. This kind of music is characterized by a minimal rhythm, a line of bass near of the funk’s, and voices (not always) , sometimes sampled.

Nowadays, the House music is divided in a lot of variants, and the Electro House is one of them:
It’s a current which appeared around 2000, and played above all in Europe.
It’s characterized by sonorities more melodic than the first House music. This is the type of music which I prefer. The instruments which are used for the Electro House music are the synthesizer, the sequencer, and the sampler.

Some artists specialized in Electro House :

Avicii, a Swedish DJ, the most popular of the moment.
His most popular songs : Levels (2011),  Fade Into Darkness (2011) , My Feelings For You (2010)
