What is Electronic Dance Music?

Electronic Dance Music, or EDM as it is commonly called, is a genre of music that is made specifically for dancing. This type of music is usually made with synthesizers and drum machines, and often incorporates heavy basslines and chords. It is often times classified as “trance” music.


The origins of Electronic Dance Music (EDM) can be traced back to the early days of the rave and club scene in the United Kingdom. In the late 1980s and early 1990s, DJs began to experiment with using electronic equipment to create new sounds for their sets. This led to the development of a new style of music, which came to be known as EDM.

EDM is characterized by its use of electronically produced beats and synthesized melodies. It is often produced with software programs such as Ableton Live andFL Studio, which are designed specifically for making this type of music. EDM is generally played on digital audio workstations, which are also known as DJ controllers.

The first EDM festivals began to appear in the early 2000s, and they have since become some of the most popular events in the world. In recent years, EDM has become increasingly mainstream, with artists such as Calvin Harris and Avicii achieving significant commercial success.


Electronic dance music (EDM), also known as dance music, club music, or simply dance, is a broad range of percussive electronic music genres made largely for nightclubs, raves and festivals. It 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.

The popularity of EDM was significantly influenced by the establishment of innovative new clubs and festivals such as Chicago’s Warehouse and New York’s Paradise Garage. Emerging technologies such as synthesisers and sequencers allowed musicians to create new sounds that were not possible with previous technology. Prominent EDM genres include house, techno, trance, drum and bass, dubstep and trap.

The electronic dance music industry has evolved rapidly since the 1980s; it has experienced several waves of popularity and been subject to much controversy surrounding issues such asdrug use, copyright infringementand the death of several high-profile attendees at major events. Despite its controversial reputation, EDM has enjoyed increased popularity in recent years among people of all ages.
