thanks, man. I'm familiar with the precursors but I'm gonna check some of the newer stuff. you know stuff similar to Danube Dance's "Unique"? That's the kind of thing that I'm looking for. Is that garage house.? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Parn4gISRL4
danzig, "Unique" can be considered a garage house tune, but I believe the "New York Club Mix" of that tune is much more garage than all other remixes. Actually, the beats, basslines and melody on this mix pretty define what garage house was, the only difference being it's slower than general. Garage house became a bit faster as years passed (as you can see, for instance, HERE

Some people think there wasnt electronic music before there was house.
Yeah, I agree with you, guys. Even not considering classical/experimental/electroacustic music composers (the true pioneers) and groups like Kraftwerk, Can, Organisation, Neu!, Tangerine Dream, etc, you can still find popular, "danceable" (taking this aspect as a relevant criterium) electronic music at least on the second half of 70's. First productions by Ultravox, Human League, YMO, Brian Eno, Moroder and many others are gems of this epoch.
