What is EDM?

To scratch or not to scratch, that is the question. No seriously. What is EDM? We have to start with the fact that there’s a bit of a debate about EDM as a genre. The music industry is using this label, so we are, too. Suffice it to say that electronic dance music (EDM) is music that is produced by a DJ for nightclubs, dancing, and may even be performed by a DJ live.

“Electronic Dance Music, while the abbreviated EDM term came much later, is essentially any form of music that is both produced electronically with digital (computers) and analogue equipment, and is designed to be danced to.” EDM Prod

This graphic by Magnetic Magazine breaks down dance music from Funk through the 1980s.

What is Dance Music?

Dance music can encompass all styles of music. Everyone can dance to any music style such as country, big band, rock, and more. However, our list of best wedding dance songs will primarily entail music that is electronically enhanced.

The 4/4 backbeat with a bass line that lures you onto the dance floor is what we’re going after. Most of these songs don’t fit on one side of a 45! But seriously, they’re longer tracks, with vocalizations sampled in, that allow you to enjoy yourself on the dance floor. These are not Top 40 3 minute radio hits.

“Like most disco artists, Chic released their singles in two versions; a short version for the radio and a longer twelve-inch single that was remixed for dance clubs. Most twelve-inch singles had a breakdown in the middle with extra percussion but no singing and most dance remixes still have breakdowns today.” English Club

Dance Songs From Funk to House

Our modern-day dance music progressed in the late Eighties with the use of electronic musical instruments as well as advances in electronic music technology. This technology was used to enhance music in song production. Electronic music instruments and technology include the electric guitar, computer, and synthesizers. In the early 1980s, dance music producers were the first to create a record aimed specifically for DJs with extended 12? remix versions. Club DJs and rave DJs helped in the spread of dance style music to the masses at prominent clubs in America and Britain.

Growth and interest in electronic music spurted in the early 1980s with artists such as Depeche Mode, New Order, and Devo. By the late 1980s and into the early 1990s, dance clubs were primarily playing electronically-enhanced dance music. With the inventions of digital synthesis and MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface), there’s even more to come! By 1989 through the early 1990s, house and techno were less underground and becoming more mainstream — at least in Europe.

 

While Americans were dancing to boy bands, Europe fully embraced Electronica. Mainstream dance music in the 1990s included artists like The Shamen, KLF, Black Box, and EMF. In the past decade, computer technology has made significant strides with the development of music software including virtual studio environments.

Wedding dance music includes such genres as dance, house, techno, and electronica. However, standard songs can be remixed into dance tunes such as DJ Miko’s remix of the rock song – What’s Up by 4 Non-Blondes.
