Hip Hop and House Music? Together? Yessir.
Think of it like mixing a cocktail. Rum and Coke. Vodka and Redbull. Or a more g-rated example, Peanut Butter and Jelly. All of these things are fine on their own. Separately created, and can be enjoyed by themselves. But when combined with each other, a whole new creation of flavor is born. Hip-House, or House Rap, explores just that: the combination of hip/hop elements with house music - and creates a whole new genre of music.
Minor History Tidbit: The first actual hip-house song was "Rok Da House" by the Beatmasters and Cookie Crew in 1987.
You didn’t think electronic music was going anywhere, did you?
Sounds of dub step and electro beats can be heard playing in the background of everywhere from shopping malls to restaurants these days; and that’s not even including your weekly house music hot spot. Festivals such as Coachella, Bonaroo, Electric Zoo, and Ultra have been getting rave reviews from electronic music enthusiasts, gathering tens of thousands of people every year. Although an amazing experience, these festivals tend to last for days, draining both mind and wallet. Taking that into consideration, the people over at Skullcandy are treating EDM fans to a one day festival to keep the music flowing beyond their stylish headphone gear.
