Electronic music instruments and technology include an electric guitar, computer, and synthesizers. In the early ’80s, dance music producers were the first to create a record aimed specifically at DJs with extended 12″ remix versions.

EDM and Dance Wedding Songs
Last Updated: January 6, 2020
Growth and interest in electronic music spurted in the early 1980’s with artists such as Depeche Mode, New Order, and Devo. By the late 80’s and into the early ’90s, dance clubs were primarily playing electronically enhanced dance music. This was helped to come to fruition with the inventions of digital synthesis and MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface). By 1989 through the early 1990s, house and techno style music was less underground and becoming more mainstream.
90’s mainstream dance music 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.
