Future House

Future house (also known as UK deep house[2][3]) is a house music genre that emerged in the 2010s United Kingdom, described as a fusion of deep house, UK garage and incorporating other elements and techniques of other EDM genres.[4][5][6][7]


The word was coined by French DJ Tchami. In an interview, he says that he tagged his tracks "Future House" on SoundCloud "as a defiant joke. It has never been about to launch a new genre. I guess people loved it and made it a new genre. That's the beauty of internet. Future House basically means every tunes that push forward [the] House genre. Whatever it is. It's open."[8]

The genre has been credited as being pioneered by Oliver Heldens.[9]


Future house is a subgenre of house music. Songs within the genre are normally characterized by a muted melody with a metallic, elastic-sounding[10]drop and frequency-modulated basslines. The most common tempo is around 125 BPM, but it can vary around the 120-130 mark.[11]


Heldens' international chart successes "Gecko (Overdrive)" and "Last All Night (Koala)" brought the genre to wider mainstream recognition in 2014, leading to minor feuds between him and Tchami on social media.[12] Artists such as Don Diablo, Mike Williams, Mesto, Brooks and Curbi have since incorporated the sound into their work, leading some commentators to observe the commercialisation of the style.[11]

From the jackin' house that pours out of Chicago to this day, characterized by its repetitive 4/4 beats, drum machine rhythms, off-beat hi-hat cymbals, and synthesized basslines, to the present tides of deep house and future house that are washing over the music world, the chances are high that listeners will fall in love with the genre
