What is electronic dance music?
Electronic dance music, also known as EDM, 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.
EDM producers also perform their music live in a concert or festival setting in what is sometimes called a live PA. In Europe, EDM is more commonly called ‘dance music’, or simply ‘dance’.
The term “electronic dance music” and the initialism “EDM” were both coined in the 1980s by British journalist Simon Reynolds. However, it wasn’t until the 1990s that the term started to be used on a regular basis, when American Dj and producer Kevan Gospel launched the first major US EDM festival, Energy 92.3’s Party 93 in San Francisco.
