What is house music? The Chicago bred genre is characterized by a repetitive four-on-the-floor beat. It is also characterized by a typical tempo of 120 beats per minute. Created in the late 1970s, house music derived from Chicago’s underground club scene. It was a unique style that developed from music producers and DJs altering disco songs, giving them a mechanical beat. Eventually, house music expanded internationally, becoming a global phenomenon.
With the help of legends such as Frankie Knuckles, house continues to be an ongoing inspiration to many. So, who’s next? Who will be the next person to bring their own unique flavor to an already spicy art form? Enter Freddie Wahter.

With its a hauntingly hypnotic vibe, the song is a pulsating journey through unparalleled patterns and diffusive soundscapes.
