In early 1980s Chicago, club visitors named House the mixture of music played by Frankie Knuckles at the discotheque "Warehouse". House music, as a genre of electronic dance music, originated in Chicago in the mid 1980s. In the mid-to-late 1980s, house music became popular in Europe, and then other major cities in North America, South America, and Australia. Early house music commercial success in Europe saw songs such as "Pump Up The Volume" by MARRS (1987), "House Nation" by House Master Boyz and the Rude Boy of House (1987), "Theme from S'Express" by S'Express (1988) and "Doctorin' the House" by Coldcut (1988) in the pop charts. Since the early to mid-1990s, house music has been infused in mainstream pop and dance music worldwide.
Being a well-established style of music, house now has many sub-genres, which often have their own Discogs tags. Migration towards these on entries could give a deeper understanding of the releases you are editing and prevent over-population of House as a tag on its own.
