Genres / Progressive House / Information


Progressive House is a style of House music that is noted for musical progression within melodies and basslines. The term was coined by Mixmag editor Dom Phillips. It has similar elements to both Electro House and Trance. It has its origins in Great Britain in the early 1990s, with the output of Guerilla and Leftfield's first singles (particularly "Leftfield - Song of Life"). The music itself was produced with the 4-to-4 beat of house music and deeper dub-influenced basslines, with greater emphasis on emotion before structural considerations. Often, it featured elements from many different genres mixed together. Song of Life, for instance, has a Trip Hop like down-pitched breakbeat and a high-energy Roland TB-303 riff at various stages.


In 1992, the dance club Renaissance opened in Mansfield where DJs Sasha and John Digweed were instrumental in popularizing its early sound. Other notable Progressive House DJs and producers include: Nathan Fake, James Holden, Dave Seaman, Nick Warren, Jason Jollins, Hernan Cattaneo, Deadmau5, Anthony Pappa.
