Skip navigation! Story from Music. There are few things in the world as fun as totally letting go and dancing. Of course, dancing requires good music. You can't break it down to slow, moody music — unless you've got moves like Solange or Janet Jackson. For the rest of us, a dance party requires upbeat dance tunes.

Electronic dance music EDM , also known as dance music , club music , or simply dance ,  is a broad range of percussive electronic music genres made largely for nightclubs , raves and festivals. It is generally produced for playback by DJs who create seamless selections of tracks, called a mix , by segueing from one recording to another. In the late s and early s, following the emergence of raving , pirate radios and an upsurge of interest in club culture , EDM achieved widespread mainstream popularity in Europe. In the United States at that time, acceptance of dance culture was not universal; although both electro and Chicago house music were influential both in Europe and the United States, mainstream media outlets and the record industry remained openly hostile to it. There was also a perceived association between EDM and drug culture , which led governments at state and city level to enact laws and policies intended to halt the spread of rave culture. Subsequently, in the new millennium, the popularity of EDM increased globally, largely in Australia and the United States. By the early s, the term "electronic dance music" and the initialism "EDM" was being pushed by the American music industry and music press in an effort to rebrand American rave culture. Various EDM genres have evolved over the last 40 years, for example; house , techno , dance-pop etc. Stylistic variation within an established EDM genre can lead to the emergence of what is called a subgenre.
