Garage House tracks typically feature a tempo ranging from 120-130 BPM and may include live instrumentation, such as pianos, horns, and strings, as well as electronic drums and synthesizers. The music is designed to create a soulful and uplifting atmosphere, with a focus on melody, harmony, and emotional expression.

The genre gained popularity in New York City in the 1980s, before spreading to other cities and countries around the world.

Some of the key artists associated with Garage House include Larry Levan, Frankie Knuckles, and David Morales, who helped to define the genre's sound and influence its development..
The genre's focus on harmony, melody, and emotional expression can create a sense of warmth, nostalgia, and upliftment, making it a popular choice for uplifting and positive dance music.

Like the workings of a big machine, this industrial track is regimented, accurate and precise. An inventive rhythm track which sounds like a steam engine powering pistons helps provide the backing for various sections indicating mechanical movement.
