Progressive house is an electronic dance music style that originated in the 1980s. It is characterized by its complex, progressive sound structures, melodic synth leads, and deep, atmospheric bass. Progressive house is usually produced by electronic instruments and often relies on samples and synthesized voices.
The roots of progressive house lie in the Italian disco music of the 1970s and the Euro-disco of the 1980s. Artists such as Giorgio Moroder and Cerrone shaped the genre with their fast, driving rhythms, electronic sounds, and danceable melodies, and were considered pioneers of progressive house.
In the 1990s, progressive house was popularized by artists such as Daft Punk, The Chemical Brothers, and The Prodigy. These artists relied on complex, progressive sound structures, melodic synth leads, and deep, atmospheric bass, and were known for their high-energy live performances.
One of the most style-defining albums of progressive house is "Discovery" by Daft Punk, released in 2001. This album was characterized by its complex progressive sound structures, melodic synth leads and deep atmospheric basses and became a classic of the genre. Daft Punk is a French band known for their progressive house hits such as "One More Time", "Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger" and "Digital Love".
