The electronic driven music adopted new trends when it comes to style and the artist. Previously being dance-drive and fast, this energetic style virtually devoid of a singing voice entered the mainstream by integrating itself with pop, dance, rock, reggae and even mellow tunes, taking advantage of tunes that people are accustomed to.
A noticeable trend is adding the power of speech, using words set into music, giving the jazz-influenced genre a significant foothold in the pop dominated scene. Lyrics enhance the song’s ability to further captivate listeners’ imagination moving him to get swayed by rhythm and verses. If you’re a true music aficionado, you glue your ears on all aspects of a song.
The melody, playability, as well as the artist’s personal history play significant roles in appreciating compositions. Songs tell a story, even if it’s instrumental. Coupled with a singing voice, the listeners’ hearts and minds are captured by the subliminal effect of the track. They compare or dwell into what their subconscious conveys and what the words reveal.
This growing fashion gained ground not only in people who are already huge fans of house music, but the development also reached listeners who are unfamiliar or who are not really inclined on appreciating mostly fast-paced and repetitive instrumental music having little or no sung words. Thus, music you only hear when you hang out at bars dance halls are often played in mainstream radio stations. Music videos also feature many progressive and instrumentally alternative forms of the thriving musical genre that sometimes take center stage.
House music stretched its influence from clubs or parties to offices, malls and households as the technological and almost instrumental genre won over conventional listeners who considered it hard to appreciate at first. House music achieved an ever-growing popularity by incorporating different musical styles such as reggae, rock, pop, hip hop and mellow melodies in their works. Gaining more airtime may have helped, yet it is house music’s ability to energize or “mood swing” one’s body and soul that stimulated many listeners to appreciate house music.
A little smooth rhythm makes you think sensual, romantic or relaxed. Fast-paced beats enliven listeners’ psyche. The melodies let him express positive emotions and probably spread the goodwill. When you mix an nontraditional approach with something people already find irresistible, then you open their hearts and minds to new methods that help in their appreciation.
People are always searching for innovative ways in admiring unheard of concepts. Curiosity inspires us to widen our pursuit of satisfaction. Through combining what you love with what you’re about to hear, you explore new horizons that enables you to reach a certain level of satisfaction.
From a psychological perspective, house music’s new drift increased its ever growing popularity. Adopting a little bit of everything from various musical genres not only aided house musicians to develop their individual talents and careers but it also makes the genre compete and remain significant in the music industries of many countries. Even in Asia where anything Western is always welcome, house music often dominates club parties or night outs in bars.
Another evident trend in house music and its artists is the collaboration of house artists with today’s popular recording stars. Daft Punk’s hit “Get Lucky” featured Pharrell Williams who sang the hit “Happy”. Calvin Harris posted many top songs in the charts courtesy of Tinie Tempah (Drinking from the Bottle), Rihanna (We Found Love), Ellie Goulding (I Need Your Love) plus numerous artists including Florence Welch, Ayah Marar and Alesso. David Guetta added his brilliance to Akon, Usher and Kelly Rowland.
This innovation carried the genre through a competitive musical market where house music has to contend with the already established mainstream pop, rock and love songs categories that seemed to have easily found their loyal followers. DJ’s incorporated well admired pop songs into their music. Therefore, they captured more listeners who infused their familiarity of the hits with the subconscious, spellbinding and usually instrumental tunes. House music also adopted softer and not so intense or fast-paced beats, making it ideal for homes. Stressed professionals, students and persons looking to relax tired bodies played lounge or chill out over cups of coffee, soda or wine.
The contemplative characteristics affect body, heart and soul. More subtle atmosphere you hear in many house compositions increased its audience share as countless listeners love the soothing effects the tunes leave on their senses. As a result, listening goes beyond hearing alternative styles of music. It’s a convincing medium in helping a person’s well-being. Listening stimulates the physical, emotional, spiritual and mental aspects of his or her daily living.
Although I’m barely familiar with house music having been introduced to it through friends, this type of genre must have originated in clubs or “houses” which innovative disc jockeys develop to further captivate their audience during celebrations or night outs.
Today, the once obscure type of tunes carved its niche on households who mix them with their chores. They often use the calming or energizing rhythm in enhancing the effectiveness of activities they undertake. I am an avid writer of essays, stories plus a bit of poetry. I rely on coffee and music to stimulate my imagination. Squeezing your creative juices spells the difference between getting stuck in writer’s block, wavering motivation or finishing your literary projects. Students use music in keeping them awake mind and body. Artists, architects plus anyone working on projects apply mostly instrumental music as a way of aiding them do the best blueprints they can ever think of.
Today’s culture has been characterized by adopting unusual or alternative lifestyles in enhancing status symbol. You see teenagers and young professionals embracing almost anything out of the ordinary to carve their status symbol. Whether in fashion, gadgets, entertainment, food or places they hang out, people seek something many are still unfamiliar with. House music satisfied their passion for gaining appreciation from peers. The music I barely knew now found its way into countless ears, including myself.
