The second installment of our new Subgenre Spotlight series focuses on progressive house.
Developed in the early ’90s, the genre gained global popularity two decades later as part of the EDM wave. It is characterized by build-ups, melodic vocal breakdowns, and climactic drops. Notable artists in the genre include Calvin Harris, Avicii, Swedish House Mafia, Kaskade, and deadmau5.
