DEFINITION

DEFINITION


La Progressive House est une musique qui volue progressivement, forme de build ups* trs longs et parfois mme dun seul et unique drop* sous sa forme la plus pure. Ses morceaux durent souvent plus de 6 minutes.

Les sonorites employes se confondent parfois celles de la Trance mais la Progressive House se distingue de celle-ci par son tempo plus lent ainsi que par ses motifs kick*/snares*/hat* contre un kick isol pour la Trance.

De nos jours, on confond tort la Progressive House avec la Big Room House qui emprunte dans ses drops les sons de lElectro House en gardant une structure assez progressive.


Progressive House is a music that evolves gradually, composed of very long build ups* and usually a single drop* in its purest form. Its tracks can often last more than 6 minutes.

The sounds employed are sometimes confused with those of the Trance, but Progressive House differs from it by its slower tempo and its kick*/hat*/snare* pattern against a single kick in Trance.

Today, Progressive House is mistakenly confused with Big Room House that borrows sounds from Electro House in its drops but keeping a fairly progressive structure.


STRUCTURE GENERALE

GENERAL STRUCTURE


Tempo : 125 - 130 BPM

La Progressive House volue grce de longues couches successives de sonorits surajoutes. Mais elle va rester "house" en ce sens qu'elle concerve la notion d'un groove* rpt, et la prsence de voix (moins constantes).

Elle va ensuite gagner en intensit de faon plus ou moins importante par rapport au reste, lors dun long build up* pourvu d'un nouveau groove qui permet d'introduire le drop* de faon nuance. Il ny a donc en gnral pas le roulement de kick caractristique des build up des autres genres d'EDM*.

On peut donc noter comme caractristique formelle de la Porgressive House l'exacte similitude mlodique entre le lead et le drop. Le mme motif va prendre de l'amplitude dans le lead pour tre rutilis dans le drop (marqu par un simple ajout des basses).


Tempo: 125-130 BPM

Progressive House evolves through many superimposed layers of sounds. But it will remain "house-like" in the sense that it concerves the notion of a repeated groove* and the presence of vocals (more variably).

It will likely increase in intensity more or smaller than the rest, after a long build up* provided with a new groove which introduces the drop* in a nuanced manner. There is therefore unlikely the characteristic rlling kick build up found in other genres of EDM.

It can thus be noted as a formal feature of the Porgressive House: the exact melodic similarity between the lead and drop. A same pattern will receive more amplitude in the lead and the build up to be reused in the drop (marked by a simple addition of bass).


PROVENANCE

ORIGIN


La Progressive House est ne en Angleterre aprs la premire vague de House, au dbut des annes 1990. Cependant, le mot "progressive" dsignait alors toute musique vise futuriste ou exprimentale. Ainsi, la House de Chicago et la Techno de Detroit taient lpoque qualifis de musique progressive.

En 1992, les artistes Sasha et John Digweed ont popularis ce genre lors des soires du club Renaissance de Mansfield, permettant ainsi un consensus quant la notion de House progressive.

SOUS-GENRES

SUBGENRES


- La Progressive House classique : forme la plus pure de Progressive House repectant la dfinition structurelle du genre la lettre : un seul drop* au terme d'un long build up*, lui mme faisant suite une intro et un lead* particulirement longs.
Ses morceaux tournent autour de 6 8 min et sont d'une intensit globale assez modre.
Cette forme puriste aspire globalement plus revtir un aspect exprimental qu' faire danser. Les voix y sont ainsi peu prsentes et les sonorits trs recherches.

- La Swedish House ou Swedish Progressive House : constitue le pendant dansant de la Progressive. Elle comporte moult parties vocales et autres larges synths aux mlodies "anthemic" (efficaces). On la diffrencie de sa grande soeur, sur le plan sonore, par l'absence de snare* dans les drops ("snareless drops") et par l'importante utilisation de gating* sur les synths du lead. De faon plus rdhibitoire, on la distingue structurellement de la forme classique par la prsence de plusieurs drops, comme dans les autres genres d'EDM.
Il s'agit en effet de la charnire historique entre la Progressive et la Big Room House.

- L' Acoustic Progressive House : petite dernire du genre, elle s'est dveloppe vers le dbut de l'anne 2012, en rponse l'apparition de la Big Room House courant 2011, considre comme une drive trs lectrique et peu mlodique de la Progressive House. Ce style trs doux et pur, d'ailleurs trs souvent associ la Deep House pour cela, utilise une grande varit d'instruments mlodiques de type acoustique : saxophone, flte, guitare pince, orgue, violons... jous seuls ou en petit nombre. Ses percussions aussi se veulent acoustiques : maracasses, tam tam, tambourin, etc.

Il semblerait que ce soit Laurent Garnier, le premier, qui eu l'ide de faire un soliste saxophoniste ou fltiste sur un beat de Techno (son genre de prdilection). Elle n'en reste pas moins de la Progressive House par sa structure d'ajout couche par couche des instruments et par la prsence frquente d'un unique drop.


- Progressive House classic: the purest form of Progressive House who respects the structural definition of the genre to the letter: one drop * after a long build up *, itself following a intro and a particularly long lead *.
Its tracks are around 6 to 8 min and have an overall fairly moderate intensity.
This purist form aspires to assume a generally more experimental side than dancing. The voices are so very present and very popular sounds.

- Swedish House or wedish Progressive House is the dancing during the Progressive. It includes vocal parts moult and other large synth melodies "anthemic" (effective). It differentiates it from its big sister, the noise level, the lack of snare * in drops ("snareless drops") and the extensive use of gating * on the synth lead. More prohibitive, it is structurally distinct from the classical form by the presence of several drops, as in other genres of EDM.
This is indeed the historical link between the Progressive and the "Big Room House to the yew-tree Go" Big Room House.

- The Acoustic Progressive House : youngest of the genre, it has grown to the beginning of 2012, in response to the appearance of the Big Room House in 2011, considered a very low electric drift and melodic Progressive House. This very soft and sleek style, moreover, very often associated with Deep House for this, using a wide variety of melodic acoustic type instruments: saxophone, flute, guitar pinch, organ, violins ... played alone or in small numbers. His acoustic percussion also want: maracasses, tam tam, tambourine, etc.

It seems that it is Laurent Garnier was the first who had the idea to do a sax or flute soloist on a beat of Techno (his favorite genre). She remains under the Progressive House structurally adding layer after layer of instruments and by the frequent presence of a single drop.
