Future house (also known as UK deep house[2][3]) is an electronic dance music genre that emerged in the 2010s United Kingdom, described as a fusion of deep house, UK garage and other techniques of EDM.[4][5][6][7]

The genre was pioneered by Oliver Heldens, who is credited with popularizing it[8] and Tchami, who coined the term.[9]

Heldens' international chart successes "Gecko (Overdrive)" and "Last All Night (Koala)" brought the genre to wider mainstream recognition in 2014, leading to minor feuds between him and Tchami on social media.[10] Artists such as Don Diablo, Mike Williams, Mesto, Brooks, Curbi and Swanky Tunes have since incorporated the sound into their work, leading some commentators to observe the commercialisation of the style.[11]


Future house is a subgenre of house music. Songs within the genre are normally characterized by a muted melody with a metallic, elastic[12] sounding drop and frequency modulated basslines. Most common BPM is 125, but it can be also some value between 120-130.[11]

From the jackin’ house that pours out of Chicago to this day, characterized by its repetitive 4/4 beats, drum machine rhythms, off-beat hi-hat cymbals, and synthesized basslines, to the present tides of deep house and future house that are washing over the music world, the chances are high that listeners will fall in love with the genre

I can certainly remember there was a period when I was listening to a lot of UK music, like Shadow Child. At one point, I seemed to be going back in time, checking out tracks from 2005 and 2006, but then I somehow tried working on my own version of UK deep house, and that turned into Gecko
