As the name implies, it’s a subgenre of house music. House itself developed from disco in the 1980s. DJs took disco songs and increased the base to create more depth to the songs. This resulted in a thriving nightclub subculture and house has since split into many other genres, including progressive house. It’s progressive because it’s experimental rather than conservative. It tries new things that other people would never think of. The result is a unique sound that some absolutely love while others just don’t understand it.
I guess the defining feature of progressive house is that it’s repetitive. It doesn’t contain any clearly define anthemic choruses, it doesn’t build to a crescendo, and there’s no drum rolling. It’s just a steady, trance-like beat that takes you to another world. It sometimes sounds very similar to techno music and the two are hard to distinguish.
