Background & Etymology
Future House is a genre that emerged from the EDM Pop era of mainstream music in the early 2010s, the genre gain popularity in mainstream music thanks to will.i.am, which he would release numerous songs under this genre, and comment on this style of music saying "Its a way to escape reality [and all the negativity]". This genre quickly became one of the mainstream and key sounds of the early 10s, with ever artists like Britney Spears and Miley Cyrus getting into the scene. The term "future house" was coined by French DJ Tchami who used the term without considering it a genre saying in a 2015 interview "Future house was meant to be 'any kind of house music that hasn't been invented yet, so I never considered it as a genre. I guess people made it what it is because my music was specific and leading to build a bridge between house and EDM, which isn't a bad thing". Later, in 2016, the popular online music store for DJs Beatport added Future house as one of three new genre tags. Later in 2017 Selected, an Electronic Record Label, uploaded to YouTube a Future House mix, featuring popular House artists including Tchami, which has gained nearly 10 million views.
Future House is associated with Futuristic-casual clothing with Visors, mainly worn by black males and queer males. The clothing was popularized by will.i.am in the early 2010s appearing in some of his music-videos at the time.
