What is electronic dance music?

Electronic dance music (EDM), also known as dance music, club music, or simply dance, is a broad range of percussive electronic music genres made largely for nightclubs, raves and festivals. EDM is generally produced for playback by DJs who create seamless selections of tracks, called a mix, by segueing from one recording to another.

It includes various subgenres like house, techno, trance, drum and bass etc. The popularity of EDM has grown tremendously in recent years. According to a report by International Music Summit China, the value of China’s EDM industry will grow from 6.5 billion RMB in 2016 to over 13 billion RMB by 2020.

History of electronic dance music

The history of electronic dance music is often traced back to the formation of a subculture in the 1970s. This subculture was centered around the use of electronic musical instruments and the desire to create new, innovative sounds. In the early 1980s, a new style of music called house emerged from this subculture. House music was characterized by a 4/4 beat and often featured samples of other songs or sounds. This new style of music quickly spread from its origins in Chicago to other major cities in the United States and Europe.

In the 1990s, a new generation of electronic dance music artists began to experiment with different styles and sounds. This led to the development of various subgenres, including trance, techno, and drum & bass. By the end of the decade, electronic dance music had become one of the most popular genres in the world. Today, it continues to evolve and innovate, with new subgenres emerging all the time.

EDC (Electric Daisy Carnival) is one of the most popular electronic dance music festivals in the world. Held in Las Vegas, Nevada, the festival attracts hundreds of thousands of people from all over the globe.

Tomorrowland is another hugely popular EDM festival. Held in Belgium, the festival has been running since 2005 and has seen some of the biggest names in electronic dance music perform, including David Guetta, Carl Cox, and Tiësto.

Ultra Music Festival is another well-known EDM festival. It was founded in 1999 in Miami, Florida, and has since been held in a number of different cities around the world, including Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; Seoul, South Korea; and Tokyo, Japan.
