DESCRIPTION

The term progressive is often used to denote a novel stylistic development within a specific genre of dance music. According to the DJ and producer Carl Craig, the term "progressive" was used in Detroit in the early 80s in reference to Italo Disco. The music was dubbed "progressive" because it drew upon the influence of Giorgio Moroder's Eurodisco rather than the Disco inspired by the symphonic sound of Philadelphia soul. In the late 1980s UK music journalist Simon Reynolds introduced the term "progressive dance" to describe album oriented acts such as 808 State, The Orb, Bomb the Bass, and The Shamen. Roots of Progressive House can be traced back to the 1990 to 1992 rave and club scene in England, Scotland, Canada, America, Ibiza, and mainland Europe. A combination of US House, UK House, Italian House, European Techno, and Trance largely influenced one another during this era. The term was used mainly as a marketing label to differentiate new rave House from traditional American House. The label Progressive House was often used interchangeably with Trance in the early years.
