Soulful House is a style of dance music that is characterized by heavy kick drums (although this can vary), heavy bass lines, a driving rhythm and gospel sounding vocals (in general, although there are instrumentals). It was originally descended from disco in its waning days, R&B and funk. That’s as far as I’m willing to go to try to describe it. While it’s hard to say who the actual founder was or who made the first house music song, it is practical to say who were some of the earliest champions of the music. There were deejays, producers, promoters, club/venue owners, sound people, dancers, designers (fashion), artists and a lot of behind the scenes people who are unrecognized. This is the original house music!!!
