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 disc jockeys who create seamless selections of tracks, called a mix by segueing from one record 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 acronym “EDM” were both first used in the late 1980s/early 1990s by British journalist Rob Mitchell in reference to the explosion of club culture that was occurring at that time. At around the same time, American artists such as Don Henley and New Order were also releasing songs that have since been retrospectively considered as early examples of EDM. In the mid-1990s, DJ Magazine published an annual Top 100 DJs poll which soon became regarded as one of the most important ratings within the industry.
