The Nightclub in Paris That Gave Birth to House Music
|July 24, 2012||Posted by under Music|
House music is a popular form of electronic music that involves the use of strong beats, electronic drums and bass lines that have been created through synthesizers. This form of music has been around for a few decades now and has become especially popular in France. One such place that is often credited in Paris as the spot that gave birth to house music is the VIP Room.
The VIP Room is a spot on rue de Rivoli that has long been seen as one of the top spots for house music in Paris. The club has been noted for providing visitors with a variety of house music events throughout all days of the week.
It was created as a place for evening outings and different special events. It has become a big name for house music since the 1990s when different electronic acts and music recordings came through the club. These include many recordings all the way out from Chicago, the city that many people associate as the true birthplace of house music.
The club has been noted as a spot that plays house music from some of the newest luminaries in the field. These include people from not only Paris and other parts of Europe but also from people in other popular places for house music including Chicago and Miami. The draw that it has is so special that the place has even expanded to include satellite locations well outside Paris. These include spots in Monaco and Cannes.
There’s also the feature of the club being home to performances from many different musicians throughout the year. A majority of these performances come from the house music field but there are still a good number of cases where hip hop acts come to play. There are even cases with aftershows from larger acts can come all the way out to the VIP Room.
The house music scene can be noticed in many spots around the club. This includes many things like the exotic fashions that people wear and the fancy drinks that people consume around here. The house music that is spun here is also very popular although in many cases a different dance music band might actually be there to play live music.
In fact, the club is so renowned for its house music that it is often a challenge for some people to be able to get into it. The guest and waiting lists for getting into this Paris club have been very long and difficult to handle in some cases. Some people have to pay several Euros just to get in and others often have to wait for months just to reach it.
The biggest point about this place is that the club takes its house music seriously to where it plays it all night long. The place doesn’t even close until six in the morning in many cases.
It is great to see how the VIP Room is one of the top places in Paris for house music. This is a club that has become ubiquitous in the city with house music.
