Default Recommeded Listening - House

In a similar light to http://forums.dv247.com/great-musici...g-hip-hop.html, what would you seasoned dance experts and DJs would recommend as a required listening for House music?

What are the important tracks that should be listened to in order to get into this genre?

i wouldn't know where to begin, house is so mass produced and so split into sub sub sub sub genres its impossible to say whats good for me is going to be good for you. i would suggest go to dj download sites and preview as many tracks as you can getting a feel for what you like. then you can explore those routes further, unless of coarse you want to listen to some old house then pretty much any old school house classics album will do a fair job of summing it all up however i myself am not really into my old house

I thought this would be the more complicated genre. Do the sites you mentioned in another thread separate the tracks according to genre? Or do I need to know what house sounds like to identify it from techno, for example?

i would say techno is faster more repetitive and simpler but then i too bet that cos sub genre too. yes most sites have sub genres, check:

traxsource
S*O*M*P*Y
beatport
djdownload
juno

if your still a little unsure il dig up some more

I think somewhere in this thread, Sphelan should be made aware of the classic, genre shaping house music tracks, as well as the contemporary stuff..

where do you begin....

If your looking for contemporary tracks which can be described as house in its original context, I would say artists like Masters At Work (to be in love a classic house track), Roger Sanchez, and a guy who is really pushing it at the moment - Kerri Chandler.

Keeping in the similar veign, you can then branch into Jackin (Chicago) house, artists like Mark Farina, Joey Youngman, Greenkeepers and J T Donaldson etc. A good way of finding tracks is to look for the aboves charts on beatport.

A lot of quality house is coming from germany at the moment, it sways towards the more techy area of
house, but retains the soulful elements of house - artists such as Dixon, Marcus Worgull, Ame & Henrick Schwarz are producing some real quality stuff at the moment.

As Sureno said, there are so many sub genres, but if its the original house sound your looking for in more contemporary artists, the above should be a good starting point.

With regards to tracks that shaped the 'House' sound the following may help:
