Electronic dance music (also known as EDM, dance music, club music, or simply dance) is a broad range of percussive electronic music genres produced largely for nightclubs, raves, and festivals. Produced for playback by disc jockeys (DJs), EDM is generally used in the context of a live mix, where a DJ creates a seamless selection of tracks by segueing from one recording to the next. The first electronic dance music genre was called "electro," short for "electro-funk," which gained wide appeal in the 1980s.
Like other music genres, EDM has various subgenres that evolved over the past 30 years that are often defined by their varying tempo (BPM), rhythm, instrumentation, and time period. For example; hard style, dub step, trance, electro, hard-core, trap, chill step, chill out, drum and bass, house, and some other genres which came from combinations from the genre above.
EDM music happens to have the following:
1. An Intro - The Producer introduces you to the bass and the basic beat.
2. A Rise - After a few seconds or a minute on the intro, The Producer goes for Rise which rises not only the pitch but also our expectations.
3. The Drop - So we have high expectations now, He has to meet our expectations. So he gives in and meets our expectations like a BAWS dropping' it like he has got more.
4. The End - This part may be long or The Producer may end his beats right here
EDM basically oscillates between two poles : the sensual and the bombastic.
The sensual is represented by house, deep-house, trip-hop, garage, future bass etc. The bombastic by jungle / d'n'b / nose-bleed techno / dub step etc. The sensual is characterized by female vocals, samples of "real instruments", a trance like continuum, jazzy harmonies etc. The bombastic by speed, color, discontinuity, excessive bass, spectacle.
Like who knows they might integrate it with VR headsets and stuff and that would then be thelatest EDM news of the hour.
