Electro-house is typified by its heavy bass.
The tempo of electro house is usually between 125 and 135 beats per minute.
In his book on Rave music and Dance culture, Simon Reynolds asked friend DJ Josiah Schirrmacher described electro house, a style as provided by artists like Zedd, Erol Alkan and Bloody Beetroots as being called electro house despite it having "little relationship with either house or electro".
The sound was popuarlized in the United States by deadmau5 and noted the style's distinct style had a 'dirty bass' with "grinding and whirring sawtooth b-lines".
More recently, the word "electro" has been seen as an adjective that denotes "hard electronic dance music".
Early songs that have been labelled retroactively as electro house include "Dark Invader" by Arrivers in 1996 and "Raw S*it" by Basement Jaxx in 1997.
In November 2006, electro house tracks "Put Your Hands Up For Detroit" by Fedde Le Grand and the D. remix of " RamirezYeah Yeah" by Bodyrox and Luciana held the number one and number two spots, respectively, in the UK Top 40 singles charts.

Big room then began to subside from the classification of a subgenre of electro house and develop more as its own genre.
The layout of a big room track is very similar to the layout of a typical electro house song.
Big room is thought of as a subgenre of electro house.
It is primarily defined by complex rhythms made from Latin-influenced drum kits, a lower emphasis on basslines and squeaky, high-pitched lead synths.
Fidget house, or fidget, is "defined by snatched vocal snippets, pitch-bent dirty basslines and rave-style synth stabs over glitchy 4/4 beats."
The term fidget house was coined by DJs/producers Jesse Rose and Switch, "as a joke, which has now gone a little too far."
Jungle terror is a music genre that developed in the 2010s.
There are also animal noises as well as vocal cuts and percussions.

Melbourne bounce is a subgenre of electro house characterized by the progression from the uptempo, horn-infused Dutch house style, tech trance synths, electro house stabs, and scouse House-influenced bass lines from around 128 up to 150 bpm.
The genre is generally characterized by a standard 128 bpm.
It is composed of bouncy offbeat bass, whiny vocal cut/saw lead, raucous horns, 8-bar snare fills before the drop.
It often features a repetitive beat structure with some amount of build-ups and mild drops throughout.
Melbourne Bounce has gained mainstream popularity around mid to late 2012 and had a steady rise from 2013.

Main article: Moombahton
Moombahton came as a mixture of slowed-down Dutch house and reggaeton.
Its identifying characteristics include "a thick, spread-out bass line; some dramatic builds; and a two-step pulse, with quick drum fills", but it has "no real rules beyond working within a 108 bpm range."
A portmanteau of "moombah" and "reggaeton", moombahton was created by DJ Dave Nada when he slowed down the tempo of the Afrojack remix of the Silvio Ecomo & Chuckie song "Moombah" to please party-goers with tastes in reggaeton.
Characteristics of the genre include chopped vocals, dubstep-influenced bass sounds and extensive build-ups.
