What is EDM?

EDM stands for electronic dance music, and it is a genre of music that is made with electronic instruments and software. EDM is typically made for clubs and festivals, and it is often characterized by its repetitive beats and melodies.


EDM is a genre of electronic dance music that originated in the late 1980s in the United Kingdom. It is characterized by a heavy use of synthesizers, drum machines, and vocoders, and often has a thumping, 4/4 beat.

EDM began to emerge as a distinct genre in the late 1980s and early 1990s, with tracks such as “Pump Up the Volume” by M/A/R/R/S (1987) and “Rave On” by Second Phase (1989). These tracks were characterized by their use of powerful basslines and drum machines, which became a staple of the genre. In the early 1990s, EDM began to gain popularity in the United States, with tracks such as “No Limit” by 2 Unlimited (1991), “Just Can’t Get Enough” by The Shamen (1992), and “Everybody Everybody” by Black Box (1990) becoming hits.

In the mid-1990s, EDM entered into its golden age, with popular artists such as The Prodigy, The Chemical Brothers, Fatboy Slim, and Daft Punk releasing groundbreaking tracks that defined the genre. This period also saw the rise of trance music, which became one of the most popular subgenres of EDM. In the late 1990s and early 2000s, EDM began to lose some of its mainstream appeal; however, it maintained a strong underground following. In recent years, EDM has once again gained popularity in the mainstream thanks to artists such as Calvin Harris and Avicii.
