Electronic / Dance

Electronic dance music (also known as EDM, dance music, club music, or simply dance) is a broad range of percussive electronic music genres using a “repetitive beat” and “synthesized backing tracks” made largely to be danced to at nightclubs, raves, and festivals. EDM is generally produced for playback by disc jockeys (DJs) who create seamless selections of tracks, called a mix, by segueing from one recording to another using a DJ mixer. EDM artists also perform their music live in a concert or festival setting in what is called a live PA. In Europe, EDM is more commonly called ‘dance music’ or simply ‘dance’.
