Dance Music and Electronic Dance Music, EDM if you prefer, from a historical, progressive and ‘now’ point of view?

The History

There are early examples of electronic dancing music going back as far as the 1960’s which includes Jamaican dub music. Along with The Yellow Magic Orchestra in the late 1970’s and the disco music of Giorgio Moroder also in the 1970’s.

EDM or electronic dance music also called club music, dance and dance music is a broad range of percussive electronic music genres. Disc jockeys or DJ’s as they are now called made or created seamless selections of tracks largely for nightclubs.  Usually called a mix the skill was to play live with segueing from one recording to another.

During the 1980@s and early 90’s  raves, club culture and festivals appeared. EDM was born and the Dance Music, Electronic Dance Music industry hasn’t looked back since.

Moving into the mid to late 1990’s EDM acquired mainstream popularity in Europe. Dance Culture and the acceptance of it was not universal with mainstream media staying hostile. Unfortunately, The Music and Electronic dance music brought with a drug culture and governments at all levels tried to stop the spread of rave culture.

However, during the early 2010’s the term “electronic dance music” and the initialism “EDM” along with “dance music” was accepted by the music industry with the music press trying to rebrand rave culture.

Today a specific EDM brand is more of an umbrella term for multiple genres, and sub-genres including trance, dubstep, house, techno, and drum and bass to name a few. You can find more on the History of Electronic Dance Music by visiting HERE
