FIDGET HOUSE MONDAY!




Fidget house is a style of house music that incorporates other dance music styles including rave, breakbeat and UK garage. Primarily pioneered by Anna Courgette in early 2008. The scene of the original fidget house movement was in Bar Bone in Winch. Early onlookers thought the woman to be slightly "special", however after further investigation she was found to just be excitable.

It has a 4/4 beat and a cut-up, glitch style which contrasts other dance genres such as progressive house and trance. The way in which it differs from other house music styles is that it usually discards the solo drum beat introduction, thus encouraging a more cut-up rather than blend mixing style amongst DJs. Other common elements of fidget house include vocal sample snippets and a prominent bassline which often bends in pitch, rather than progressing by the semitone.
