Tech house is a subgenre of house music that mixes elements of techno with house music. The term tech house developed as a short-hand record store name for a category of electronic dance music that combined musical aspects of techno, such as "rugged basslines" and "steely beats," with the harmonies and grooves of progressive house. The music originally had a clean and minimal production style that was associated with techno from Detroit and the UK. In the mid to late 1990s a scene developed in England around club nights such as Heart & Soul, and Wiggle, the latter run by Terry Francis and Nathan Cole. By late 2000 London nightclub The End, owned by one time Shamen rapper Richard West (Mr C) and Laylo Paskin, was considered the home of tech house in the UK. Other DJs and artists associated with the sound at that time included Charles Webster, Blake Baxter, Bushwacka!, Dave Angel, Herbert, Funk D'Void, Ian O'Brien & Derrick Carter.
