Electronic Dance Music – The New Addition to Music

Electronic Dance Music

Electronic Dance Music or EDM emerged during the late 90’s, gaining a steady momentum in the 2000’s. EDM is a blanket term for any dance music that is mostly based more on electronic instruments than on vocals. This includes the hugely popular genre dubstep, which is a method of music sampling and playback, usually using a Launchpad or other sampling device. This grungy, rather hiccup-y sort of music has gained an enormous following for its headbanging rhythm, mostly lyricless composition, though sometimes a couple of lines are sung using voice modulators, and intense baselines. There are even certain dance clubs and music festivals dedicated solely to the phenomenon that has become EDM.
