Bloghouse is an era of dance music that emerged in the mid-2000s. It was named after the blogs that were popular at the time that shared bloghouse music.
Though it’s difficult to describe the sound, bloghouse tracks were often characterized by heavy basslines, distorted kick drums, and samples from other genres.
“What ties together a lot of bloghouse is how we discovered it—MySpace and blogs … It was a point in time where a lot of people and influences converged. There was an openness to what the sound really was.”
