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.
