House Music Trends 2013

House Music in 2013 can be best described as „back to the old school“. Older House genres and elements will have their ultimate revival.

Deep House

The Ibiza 2012 season showed clearly were the trend goes to. One of the biggest successes in the summer had Solomun with his Diynamic's Neon Night, championing the Deep House sound every week. Complex melodies and chords combined with hard driving beats will be big in 2013, setting a clear sign against the trends of the last years: Tech House and Minimal. Also vocals and the good old House organ are back, Robin S would be so proud…

Acid House Elements

Without Acid House, House Music would have not the standing like it has nowadays. This genre brought end of the 80s House to the masses and developed a lot of unique elements, which all will have a big revival in 2013. There is the specific TB303-sound, the snare drums, sirens, the typical way the deep bassline is played, and and and…
A lot of producers will use these "old elements" and combine it with a fresh up-to-date production style. The results are energetic tracks with a classic touch. 

Let’s see, if the smiley gets a revival, too!
