The Rise Of Japanese Electronic Dance Music
Japanese electronic dance music has grown in popularity over the last few years. It has reached many clubbers worldwide and has become a big part of life in Japan. I think one of the reasons why it’s become so popular is because of the many talented musicians who have been influenced by it. Every artist who plays this style of music has a unique sound to her or his songs that separates him or her from other EDM artists. Music critics, DJs and producers around the world are trying to capture the attention of clubbers with this new style of music.
Music is subjective to a person’s personal taste. What may be hot and hip among Americans and Britons may not be that exciting and new to you and me. Japanese electronic dance music is no different. There is just so much to say on this subject, but all will be very brief and concise.
This electronic dance music is different because it is more meditative than most styles. The beats are slower and have a very hypnotic quality about them. If you’re looking for a way to relax, then Japanese electronic dance music is perfect for you. This article contains all the top Japanese electronic dance music artists, whether they’re known as individual artists or in groups.
Hatsune Miku is perhaps the most well-known artist with her famous cover of “Nei yo o ka kara.” Miku started making music when she was still a teenager in the 80s. Since then, she’s gained fame and admiration not only from her single covers but also from her many other songs. Miku first gained attention as an idol for Vocaloid programs, but her music has also been featured on CDs and DVDs by many Japanese artists.
Another great artist is the robot girl group AKB, or the robots. They’re popular because they combine the best parts of different styles of electronic dance music into one electronic set. The entire original theme of AKB is actually a robot, which makes them unique compared to other genres of electronic dance music. Many people compare the robots to robots from science fiction movies, which is actually accurate. They’re very soothing, although some producers incorporate some hard techno sounds to fit the theme more closely.
The last band mentioned in this article is the band Gakuru. This electronic dance music group formed in 1997, and their unique sound is considered new Japanese electronic dance music. The members of this band made their start in the underground, and their sound took time to take off. Now their songs are widely praised and considered to be some of the most unique beats in the world. A lot of underground artists are constantly trying to duplicate their sound, but none have been able to come close to Gakuru.
These are only a few of the many bands that make up the Japanese electronic dance music scene. New acts constantly emerge every year, and they continue to push the boundaries of what traditional DJs are willing to accept. DJs can still expect to run into some stiff competition at local parties, as people become used to DJ’s playing exclusively house music and going wild in clubs. This only seems to increase with the Internet, where anyone can upload any old song and claim it as their own. Because of this, it has become easier for new artists to get their foot in the door, and once they do, they have a better chance of taking home the prize money and becoming an overnight sensation.
One thing is for certain, if you ever find yourself in Japan, you will definitely want to check out some of the new Japanese electronic dance music. It has taken time, but once you hear some of it on vinyl, you will likely never stop listening. As long as the underground remains alive, there will always be a place for electronic dance music. It is one genre that continue to evolve, and evolve-and it looks like it will keep doing so for years to come.
