More simply put, Electro House emerged when the electro sound was becoming too boring and mellow and plain house was well, too plain. As soon as electro began to grow too popular for other musicians to find their room, they began to look for new ways to make music.

One of the very first DJs to incorporate these two style and become extremely popular was probably Benny Benassi. He directly incorporated smooth melodic electro beat with tech house irregularity.
