Outsider House

Outsider house (also referred to as outsider dance) is a genre of electronic music combining elements of house music, techno and noise. The music is often rough-sounding and "lo-fi", in contrast to the "polished cleanliness" of other contemporary electronic music genres.[1]

The term "outsider dance" was first coined in 2012 by DJ Ben UFO and music journalist Scott Wilson,[2] referring to different producers and record labels "operating at the fringes of the fringes" such as Laurel Halo and labels including L.I.E.S., Opal Tapes, Future Times, 1080p, and Lobster Theremin. Outsider house is also closely related to technoise,[3] a fusion of techno and noise music.

Subsequent coverage in The Guardian, Spin and BET has associated various artists and labels with the genre, including Anthony Naples, Lowtec, Kassem Mosse, Huerco S., Lnrdcroy, Ital, Ñaka Ñaka, OOBE, Patricia, Auscultation, Cloudface, mono/chrome, Terekke, The Cyclist and Michael DeMaio.
