What is Electronic Dance Music?

Electronic Dance Music, or EDM for short, is a genre of music that is characterized by a heavy reliance on electronic instruments and computer-generated sounds. This type of music first gained popularity in the early 1990s, and has since then exploded in popularity, especially among young people.

EDM is typically produced by DJs, who use computer software to create remixes or new compositions. These songs are then played at clubs, festivals, and concerts. EDM has become one of the most popular genres of music in recent years, and its popularity shows no signs of slowing down.

There are many different subgenres of EDM, but some of the most popular ones include techno, house, trance, and dubstep.
