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.

One of the biggest artists to work exclusively with dubstep and EDM is Deadmau5,  a music producer and artist from Canada, who has been nominated for several awards, has worked with some of the greatest DJs alive and is one of the highest paid musicians in the dubstep industry.
