What is electronic dance music?

Electronic dance music, also known as EDM, is a genre of music that is made exclusively for dancing. This type of music is mostly produced by DJs and producers using computers and electronic equipment. It is characterized by a heavy use of synthesizers, drum machines, and samplers. EDM is often played in nightclubs, festivals, and concerts.

The history of 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.

The history of electronic dance music is thought to have started in the late 1960s and early 1970s when synthesizers and drum machines were first used in disco and rock music. In the 1980s, digital technologies such as the drum machine, sampler and turntables were used to create new forms of music called house and techno. In the 1990s, more genres emerged including trance, jungle and drum and bass. Today, there are dozens of electronic dance music genres with subgenres that are constantly evolving.
