House music originated in Chicago, Illinois in the early 1980s. It was initially popularized by African-American and Latino DJs who created their own unique remixes of songs, often based on disco or funk tracks.
Techno emerged in Detroit in the early 1980s. Its sound is characterized by repetitive beats and synthesizers that often sound like machines or robots. It’s been called “the heartbeat of Detroit.”
A mix of Disco with Chicago house made its way to the nouveau rich of manhattan. Extravagant loft parties quickly rose in popularity among celebrities, creatives and wealthy individuals.
In 1987, Ibiza became the centre of Europe’s clubbing scene—and house music was at its core. The island’s warm weather made it perfect for partying all night long.
After the “second summer of love” in Ibiza house music quickly made its way to the Dutch dance floor. Being one of the most extravagant clubs of Europe club “The RoXY” quickly became the temple of house music in The Netherlands.
In July 1989 the first-ever Love parade was held in West Berlin. A group of 150 people with the statement “Peace, Joy and Pancakes” danced through the streets. Not knowing the Berlin Wall would fall in a short time. Which fuelled not only a political revolution but also a cultural awakening.
