Pronunciation (hous)

House Music: The original electronic incarnation from disco. House typically runs around 120 beats per minute (BPM) and uses a 4/4 time sequence and an eight bar repeating cycle. The beat is maintained by a heavy kick drum that alternates in a 1-3 pattern with a high hat accent. Like its disco roots, house often features vocal choruses, real instrumentation, and a more traditional song structure.

1. If you live in the countryside (n). Plural of house. A dwelling, domicile, or place where people live.

2. If you live in a big city (n). Public housing. Places with the term "houses" affixed to them are typically known as projects; the term is applied to them in a feeble attempt to make them to seem more desirable.
Many times, these will be named after famous minorities.
