'Old School' House Music

Recognising the BEST house music from 2004-2008, and more importantly what was loved most in Australia!



House Music:  "An Up-tempo style of disco music characterised by deep bassrhytms, piano or synthesiser melodies, and soul music singing."

But..more specifically; 'Old School House Music.'  (The tunes everyone has forgotten about, yet when they hear
it, they go "OMG I haven't heard this song in years! *slaps friend crazily* I loved this song!"...More the aim of this website anyway!)

Although 'old school', in theory, is mostly referred to as the old 70's & 80's music...sorry mums and dads! Not in this case. We..as young adults..(or generation y's), refer to anything from even a year or 2 ago as, 'old school'. =)

This category of house music shaped our early days of house parties, gathering, clubs and everything in between. Which therefore, in parallel guarantees to bring all party-goers to the dance floor!

         DAFT PUNK- 'AROUND THE WORLD' (1997)
  • A song by the French electronic duo, Daft Punk. It appeared on their debut album, Homework and was released as a single the same year. It became a major club hit throughout the world or all 'around the world' and arrived at #1 in dance charts. The song is particularly known for the repeated phrasing of its title and for its music video. In Australia, it peaked at no.11 on the ARIA Singles Chart. 

      FATBOY SLIM- 'The Rockafeller Skank' (1998)
  • This track by the British musician Fatboy Slim was a hit single in the album You've Come a Long Way, Baby. The single peaked at #6 in the UK Singles Chart and  in June 1998


EIFFEL 65- 'BLUE (DA BA DEE)' (1999)
  • Is it 'I'm blue da be dee da ba die' or 'Im blue if I was green I would die?'..hmm..the lyrics may have confused listeners, but whatever it was, it definitely didn't confused the charts and became a solid #1 hit in Australia! 
  • Eiffel 65 is a Grammy-nominated Italian electronic dance group who formed in the late 1990's and is best known for this international hit. 

  • Benny Benassi is a Grammy Award winning Italian DJ (again) and producer of electro house music. He is best known for his 2002 summer club hit "Satisfaction". He ranks as the 10th most popular DJ in the world...(definitely something to be satisfied about).  The song is most commonly associated with the Aussie advertisement, of Toohey's Extra Dry Beer.
