House is the first descendant of disco. While Black and Hispanic communities were jamming and party DJs spinning records, a new birth of rhythm gave way to music lovers from Chicago and New York in the form known as house music.Developed in Chicago's underground dance club culture in the early 1980s, house music began as DJs spinning in the gay subculture altered the pop-like disco dance tracks to give them a more mechanical beat and deeper bass lines. As well, these DJs began to mix synth pop, dub reggae, rap, and even jazz into their tracks.The first pioneers of house music were Chicago DJ and record producer Frankie Knuckles, Chicago acid-house electronic music group Phuture, Tennessee DJ and producer Mr. Fingers, and US-born, UK-based singer Kym Mazelle.House music quickly spread to other American cities such as Detroit, New York City, Baltimore, and Newark - all of which developed their own regional house scenes. Today, house music is worldwide and continues to dominate most club scenes and has expanded beyond its subculture beginning. 1. Language: English. Narrator: David Sadzin.

The song was the band's first single to top the Modern Rock chart in the U.S. The music video for this song received intense airplay on MTV, which is largely credited for breaking Green Day into mainstream popularity. The lyrics describe intense boredom and are about a day spent sitting around the house, doing absolutely nothing of importance, masturbating and smoking marijuana until the days are no longer fun, having no job, and no life. The song captured the attention of many youth at the time with its overt allusions to masturbation. Bassist Mike Dirnt has stated that the famous bass line intro to this song was written one night while he was tripping on acid, and what remains on the album is what he and lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong could recall in the morning. In 1995, Green Day received four Grammy Award nominations, including Best Hard Rock Performance for "Longview".

From 1995 to 2001, in Melbourne, Australia, there were 17 Zoetrope live electronic music showcases held at the now-defunct Punters Club in Brunswick Street, Fitzroy, all of them designed to support and encourage local live techno acts, in a smaller, more accessible forum.Organized by local label IF? Records, and originally called the Zeitsprung sessions before a name-change to Zoetrope in 1997, the gigs - organized every three months - supported and put the spotlight on the more cutting edge and experimental Melbourne-based electronic live acts."Zoetrope 3 [June 12, 1997] had a mix of house and acid, drum ''n'' bass and techno, performed live by three undiscovered (except by Andrez Bergen) Melbourne artists," reported Keren Shuvaly in a postscript review of the gig in Melbourne''s Beat magazine. "In between sets, Andrez played some of his own music, and it all sounded so good it was hard to distinguish between who was playing. One difference, though - live experimental music is far more enjoyable than a DJ playing someone else''s music on a turtable. For those who missed this one - it was your loss!"

Combining Chicago's acid sound with Florida's breakbeat, it was a completely different sound. It was not his original intention to invent a new style of music - he simply just wanted something different at that time. Not knowing he would be sought after and put in the spot light, Zak Baney used many aliases and put out a string of white labels, not caring to make money or fame, he was strictly in it for the love of the music.After taking a little break and then changing styles of music, Baney again found himself in the spotlight as the Miami bass scene was just starting.
