The Death of EDM
EDM or electronic dance music is electronic music produced with the intention of being played in a night club setting, or an environment based on dancing. The music is mainly created for use by disk jockeys (DJs) to be heard in a continuous set where the songs are blended together which is called a mix. Since the mid 1980s EDM has been increasing in popularity in night clubs as well as the rave scene around the United States.
The music is constructed by electronic instruments such as synthesizers and drum sequencers. It usually emphasizes the unique sounds of dance oriented styles of music. Electronic dance music has been categorized by music journalists, fans and producers as the ever-evolving genres and sub-genres continue to grow. With so many different types of dance music, the number of beats per minute (BPM) helps define separation between the genres. The presence of vocals, live instruments, synthetic instruments and pattern of drumbeats also differentiate genres of electronic dance music. Some genres like techno, house, electro, hardstyle, break beat and drum and bass are intended to promote dancing. Other genres such as trip hop, glitch and dubstep are more experimental and tend to be associated more with focused listening rather than dancing.
