The House and Techno music scene on Koh Phangan has developed rapidly during the last few years.
Before, you could find House music mostly during the Full Moon Party in Haad Rin in some venues, today, most parties in Baan Tai (the main party area) and all over the island choose to play this style of music. Some of the main parties on the Island that used to play Trance before (back in the day), such as the Jungle Experience, are renowned for playing House and Techno.
A prominent kick drum on each beat (also known as a four-to-the-floor beat) is a typical element of house music, typically produced by a drum machine or sampler. Various kick fills and extended dropouts augment the kick drum rhythm. On the eighth-note offbeats, the drum track is rounded out with hi-hat cymbal patterns and a snare drum or clap sound on beats two and four of each bar. This pattern is derived from the 1960s dance drumbeats of the so-called "four-on-the-floor" and particularly the disco drummers of the 1970s. House Music is believed to have originated in Chicago.
How is Techno different? Techno focuses mainly on the 4/4 beat in basic terms and can be represented as "dark or harder." Most individuals will love House, though it takes a little longer to get your ears around Techno if you haven't been into more filthy music genres before. For starters, dark Drum n Bass fans usually call it a little faster than those who listen to pop music.
Generally speaking, most electronic music is the more 'melodic' type enjoyed on this island. We claim this is because Koh Phangan is a warm, tropical island, so the wavy soft melody vibes suit Phangan's natural party settings better. This is why before wrapping your ears around the deeper pure Techno, you may often hear or be able to get into 'Melodic Techno' first.
