Electronic Dance Music, or EDM, is one of the most popular music forms among the many genres of modern dance. The genre originated in the early 1990s and has grown steadily since then. The growth of popularity led to an increase in production, as well as influences from various other areas. EDM, now, can be characterized as a high-energy form of electronic dance music characterized by upbeat, sometimes fast tempo beats and a wide range of musical influences. This article will provide an overview of the history of electronic dance music, including some of the more popular forms currently out there.
The term “EDM” was originally coined by a collective of artists and music producers who called themselves “The United Dance Masters”. The first major exhibition of electronic dance music took place in Japan in 1993. The venue was a massive warehouse called the Warehouse Sale, which was torn down in order to make way for a new electronic dance music festival. In the months before the event, rave became popular in Japan and other parts of Asia. As the Warehouse Sale was demolished, the DJs invited other DJs from different cities across the country to come and showcase their talents at the warehouse event.
What resulted was a month long festival featuring many different national and international DJs who brought a wide array of influences and sets from across the globe. When the dust settled, there was actually over one hundred and fifty different sets from around forty different countries represented at the Warehouse Sale. Even today, this is considered to be one of the most important and influential gatherings of DJs and Trance artists anywhere in the world. Not only was it a showcase for the incredible talent, but it also was a way for artists from countries that would not normally have been able to enjoy trance music in any form.
For years, Japanese producers such as Nuwave, Krewella, and others have been crafting the perfect blend of trance, progressive, and soft techno sounds. The secret to their success has always been the inclusion of a wide range of musical sounds and styles from across the globe. It was during this time that trance music really began to take shape as a more permanent form of electronic dance music. Today, there are countless places that showcase electronic dance music. Thanks to the rise of clubs like the Warehouse Sale and similar events in cities across the world, the genre has grown in popularity and acceptance.
There are several important factors that have played a major role in the growth of electronic dance music over the years. First, it has been necessary for promoters and organizers to push the envelope and turn what were once simple nights into internationally recognized events. After all, if you did not have the backing of an artist or group, your performance may not even get to see the light of day. Today, Trance events like Glow Weekend Sydney, Oceania, and Ultra Music Fest in Miami have become household names. These shows draw crowds from around the world who are eager to experience the newest styles of electronic dance music.
Another factor that has played a crucial role in the growth of EDM is the consistent search for up-and-coming DJs. Finding new talent and developing careers can be difficult when the pool of available talent seems to shrink every year. This is why thousands of trance artists have taken their talents to the forefront by signing to well-known record labels and DJ clubs. While this growth has certainly helped to raise the profile of electronic dance music, it is the continued growth of underground promotions that has helped to fuel the growth of trance music further.
Many of the new trance artists that are being signed to popular record labels have made their bones in the club scene first. This early experience with clubbing helps them develop the skills and knowledge they need to push the bounds of today’s electronic dance music. Signing with a well respected label gives these artists the chance to showcase their talents on a massive stage while getting the exposure that they want.
If you are looking to attend a Trance Music festival in the near future, it would be a good idea to take some time to learn more about the various styles of electronic dance music. One thing that is becoming very popular is the inclusion of “tribal” as a musical style. The biggest winners in this area include acts from the United States and United Kingdom. These native-born performers have a distinct sound that has been compared to that of royalty inspired trance. There are other talented tribes of artists from other parts of the world that have grown into superstars in their own right, such as the Canadian duo Boz Scaggs and Andy Cappo. If you are interested in attending a trance music festival in the near future, this is one area that you definitely do not want to miss out on!
