‘A Brief History of House Music’, The Evolution of Electronic Music in 4 Minutes [VIDEO]

Ever wonder how today’s electronic music came to be? The Eclectic Method blog has the answer with an interesting video entitled “A Brief History of House Music,” which takes us on a musical journey through the latter half of the 20th century.

The video begins with disco but quickly jumps to the music of the late 1970s to 1980s, the music that came to be known as electronica. It was during this time that American DJ and record producer Frankie Knuckles of Chicago’s “Warehouse” club launched this global house movement.

Curious what made the cut? You can find the full track list below as well as on the video’s Vimeo page.
