Bass house is an electronic dance music genre that emerged in late 1990s, primarily merging bass and house music. It is also influenced by other dance genres such deep house, UK garage, future house, dubstep, electro house and trap, as well including elements of hip hop.
The main characteristic of Bass House is taking the rhythmic style of House music, and introducing distortions controlled by a "Low Frequency Oscillator" (LFO), a technique associated with Bass music. The genre usually oscillates the pulses at speeds from 125 to 128 bpm, but can also go as high as 140 bpm. Vocals are generally at a low pitch.
Since the 1990s, DJs were combining bass and house music, resulting in songs that were increasingly influenced by these genres but were not considered as belonging to either one. The first song of the genre is generally considered to be RIP Groove by the British electronic duo Double 99, published on July 2, 2012 by the Brighton-based Skint Records on YouTube as it contained low distorted and the typical base of house. Although previously, house music songs with had been produced with influences of bass, such as A Bit Patchy by Switch, but these were not considered as bass house. The genre was popularized worldwide after the song Rock the Party by Jauz & Ephwurd, in 2015, which has influences of trap music. Another example of trap influcencing bass house is the song Ghosts N' Sharks by Jauz & Ghastly in 2016. Elements of future house in bass house can be seen in the Jauz' song, Feel the Volume in 2014 and Deeper Love in 2015. The song Shark Attack by Jauz & Megalodon, as well as being influenced by dubstep, also is an example of a song in the genre with beats around 140 BPM.
Some of the artists exponents of this genre include Jauz, Ephwurd, JVST SAY YES, Habstrakt, Eptic, Tiësto, Ghastly, Holygunner, Dustycloud, My Nu Leng, AC Slater, JOYRYDE, Twoloud, Chris Lorenzo, Taiki Nulight, and Jack Beats among others.
