Best House Music Playlists (Popular & Underground)

By Matthew Vultaggio

October 15, 2020

I’ve been trying to discover new music lately, so I started searching for what the best house music playlists are. Most of the results were simply links to house music playlists so I decided to do more research and write about it for you.

The best house music playlist on Spotify is the official Housewerk playlist created by Spotify. This playlist has over 1.4 million listeners, is officially made by Spotify’s editors and algorithm, and Spotify’s AI actually auto-mixes the tracks between each other similar to how a real DJ does.

But here is a big catch here…

Although Housewerk is one of the best house music playlists you can find in terms of popularity and the expertise in which it is created, it may not be exactly what you are looking for.

Are you in search of more underground styles of house music like Deep House, Lofi House or Classic House? Or perhaps, you are in search of a different mood of house music like the more laidback Chill House or the more upbeat Jackin’ or Tech House?

If you are looking for not just the best house music playlist, but the best house music playlist for you then read on my friend!

What Is The Best House Music Playlist For You?

House music comes in a large variety of different styles, sizes and cultures. In fact, there is such a large variety of house music to pick from that I wouldn’t even blame anyone for not knowing where to start.

It can be tough to identify what you are looking for specifically when starting out, which is why I am here to help you, my friend. 🙂

Cons

  • You may be looking for something more specific

Now, listen here: I know you’ve only been reading this article for a solid minute or two, but I think I know you, my friend. You’re looking for something more particular, an itch that simply the most popular playlist can’t scratch.

So, let’s dive in deeper:

So you’re ready to dive in deeper to the world of house music? Great! There is a lot to look for but to keep things simple, here some questions to ask yourself in your journey to find out what house music playlist is best for you

Give that a quick think over, and then let’s dive in to some more house playlists starting of with mood:

Best House Music Playlists Based On Mood

One very good way to find any style of music to match your vibes, is to look for music based on the mood you are feeling (or want to feel). You don’t have to worry about labels or genres, just feel it out.

I’ve searched out some of the best house music playlists based on the mood or vibe you might be feeling, and even wrote up a little about each. Let’s find what you’re feelin’.

Feeling Chill?

Chill House is a playlist created by Selected who have a very vibrant YouTube community where they post deep house tracks.

They usually update weekly and they describe this playlist as “Deep-House tracks to chill & study to. Updated weekly.”.

Dive into this playlist if you are feeling more chilled out and relaxed, but still want a bit of that house energy.

Tech House Music 2020 is a playlist created by Groove Bassment which is filled up with a more recent style of up-beat house music called Tech House.

This playlist is updated less frequently as it is meant to be a best of 2020 style of playlist. They describe it as “The best tech-house songs with music from FISHER, Camelphat, Chris Lake, Sonny Fodera and more.”

If you are feeling up-beat or want to feel more upbeat, then definitely check out this playlist. Tech House isn’t for everyone but it can most definitely get the party started.

Not feeling a particular mood?

No problem, my friend! To be honest, the previous playlists are, in general, filled with more popular styles of house music. What I’m personally more excited to show you is all the very cool things that you discover with obscure and underground forms of house music playlists.

So let me show you the best of what you’ve (most likely) been missing out on..

Best Underground House Music Playlists

Ah, the sweet, sweet underground. In my humble opinion, this is where you are going to find the best house music playlists. These forms of underground house music are less poppy and less about the stereo typical “boots and cats” basicness of house music.

There is a lot more substance here and I think you will really enjoy these underground house music playlists quite a lot.

One thing to remember: this music is a lot more rare and is made by smaller, more independent playlist curators. Because of this, most of these are generally updated less frequently.
