What Is EDM?
EDM is many things. Its sounds, emotions, lights, smells, and best of all, memories. This is why people pay thousands to visit an EDM concert.
How is edm music made? Today most electronic dance music is made digitally on laptops. These laptops use software called a DAW (digital audio workstation).
When music software advanced so did the sounds. Many EDM artists use software plugins called VST’s to get sounds.
One could say electronic music started in the early 1970’s with Kraftwerk. Now many artists have started to experiment more with electronic synthesizers. Tiesto became very popular in the 1990’s and 2000’s with Trance music. In 2010 Deadmau5 became popular using synthesizers and melodies in a way that had not been done before. Along with taking visuals at live concerts to the to the next level in a 3d cube to say the least.
EDM songs became popular in the late 1990’s. House music was a popular genre to dance to in the nightclubs. Eventually people wanted faster dance music with a synthesizer beat. This new electronic dance music sound was in the beats per minute (bpm) of 130-140 bpm. Thus, trance music was invented. Now you can find all different types of genre of electronic dance music.
Today people pay hundreds or thousands of dollars to see their favorite EDM artist live. Many argue over their favorite Top 100 DJs every year. Every year EDM Ranks announces the Top 100 DJs. And we will also announce the top 100 edm songs for the year. The dance music scene started to spice up in the later 1990’s. In 2000-2010 Technology really tarted to make live concerts better. Deadmau5 became famous for taking live performances to the next level in 2010. The main reason he was able to do this was with the cube. Ever since then edm concert stages have been bigger, brighter, louder, and better.
