Electronic dance music or EDM electronic dance music, sometimes referred to as techno music, club music or just club music, is an array of percussive beats made primarily for clubs, raves and other festivals. The term electronic dance music refers to the use of electronic instruments and effects to create a beat that is distinctive and unique to the artists. There are some sub-genres within this genre of music and each genre has its own unique style and sound that make it distinct from all others. Each electronic music style has its own distinct musical influences, which has led to a greater diversity in the styles that are used in creating electronic music today.
Techno music is the most common of the electronic dance styles and is the largest of the styles in terms of popularity. Techno is known to have originated from New York City’s Lower East Side, which was then referred to as the “Brick lane.” This particular area was home to many different artists, which included DJ Kool Herc, DJ Rashad, and others. The area was also very famous for its clubs, which were mostly found in various Manhattan skyscrapers.
Another popular form of electronic music genre is the House style. This particular style of music emerged out of the same Lower East Side club scene as Techno music did, but instead of using electronic instruments and effects, it used samples and real drum beats. One of the main differences between the two styles is the number of instruments that can be used on a typical drum beat. While Techno often uses samples that are heavily processed to create a certain effect, House styles often only use one drum beat at a time and use other instruments such as keyboards, horns and synths to give it a more authentic feel.
In addition to these two different styles, there are a number of sub-genres that can be found within the dance itself. These sub-genres include Electro Swing, Trance, and Break Dance.
Trance dance is one of the oldest forms of dance to exist and is known for its slow, smooth rhythm and heavy bass. Many people who participate in trance dance competitions will usually have heavy bass beats and heavy bass drops, which make them highly audible and noticeable. Trance is the most popular form of dance for many different groups including musicians like Nile Rodgers, Dwele, and even pop star Britney Spears, and her group the Spice Girls.
Break dance is another type of dance genre that is fast and upbeat. These kinds of dances usually take place in clubs and other public areas and are designed to get people moving.
Some DJs prefer to work in the electronic dance style, but it is possible for most artists to perform both styles in their sets. Although it is easier to do both if they wish, many DJs still prefer to use both styles, depending upon the party that they are doing. DJ Rashad, for example, performs mostly in the Techno style because he prefers to play more traditional DJ music.
Many club parties will incorporate both forms of music into the mix in order to create a more club atmosphere, which can give a more relaxed feeling, as opposed to club parties where only the Techno music is played. Club parties are becoming more popular with younger crowds due to the fact that they are more fun than traditional parties. DJs like to set the tempo of the dance parties so that the audience can relax and enjoy themselves, and get to know one another without the music going too fast and loud.
