The Evolution of Electronic Dance Music

The first seeds of electronic dance music were sown in the late 1970s. The acclaimed Italian musician, producer and DJ Giorgio Moroder joined forces with the dynamic singer Donna Summer to popularize the genre that later came to be known as EDM. Their single “I Feel Love” introduced electronic dance music to the masses and became a huge hit in 1977. The song’s significance in the music world was such that in 2011 the Library of Congress included it in its National Recording Registry.

Known as the godfather of EDM, Giorgio Moroder is still collaborating with some of the biggest names in the industry – Barbara Streisand and Elton John. More surprising is that at 77, the maestro has taken himself to the center stage and has become an internationally renowned DJ. After a gap of 23 years, Moroder has released his 14th album titled “Déjà Vu” that features collaborations with Kylie Minogue, Britney Spears, Kelis, Charli XCX, Sia, Mikky Ekko, Matthew Koma and Foxes.

More than once Giorgio Moroder has stated that anyone with aesthetics and good taste in music can be an EDM artist. Moroder was always a blessed artist with a pioneering spirit to create new styles and genres. Among many honors that have been bestowed upon him in all these years are 200 platinum and gold records along with three Oscars.

Heading into the 90s, the popularity of disco waned and electro, techno and freestyle dance music styles took over. EDM was played in nightclubs and later DJs were roped in to treat the crowd to live music. Special software were designed that allowed sequencing, the fusion of synthesizers with effects, sampling and multi-track recording features. Popular clubs and discos like Studio 54 and Paradise Garage in New York City and Chicago’s The Warehouse saw themselves packed on EDM nights, selling out EDM concerts tickets in advance.

America was a bit late in accepting EDM as compared to Europe, where the genre found wide mainstream success. UK bands, The Prodigy, Fatboy Slim, The Chemical Brothers and Underworld excelled in the field and gained popularity in different parts of the world.

Finally, in 2011, the Americans embraced electronic dance music through its new rave generation. Today, it has become a common practice for producers and artists to infuse popular EDM elements in their music. Especially in pop music, EDM acts as a driving force to make the songs more happening for the new generation.
