What is EDM?
Not so fast, you might be saying. What is EDM, anyway?
Well, before you can understand EDM, you need to have a basic understanding of house music, so let’s offer a little primer.
House music is a type of EDM (electronic dance music) that was created by DJs and producers in the Chicago area in the 1980s.
In its early years, house music typically featured repetitive beats, usually provided by drum machines, hi-hat cymbals, and synth bass. Some view house music as a progression from disco music, but ultimately house music has its own sound, with a more pared-down, minimal electronic sound.
Additionally, lyrics are typically not strongly emphasized in house music. Yes, there are house songs that have lyrics, but some songs are purely instrumental, and some feature sampled lyrics.
The characteristic repetitive beats and rhythm made house music perfect to dance to, and it took off in the underground dance club scene in the 80s.
OK, so now that you have an understanding of house music…what is deep house music?
Deep house is a subset of house music. It also has its origins in the 80s. It’s a style of house music where jazz/funk/soul features into the music prominently. Deep house tracks also have a slightly different tempo–usually between 100 and 125 BPM (beats per minute).
While this song isn’t a deep house track, just to give you an idea of what sort of speed 100 beats per minute is, that’s the speed of the song “Crazy in Love” by Beyonce and Jay-Z. That is to say: a super dance-friendly beat!

Now that you understand house music, let’s talk about enjoying it in person at Apex!
