EDM Fact
Bass is the most important element of dance music. It causes the vibration of different organs in our body, and is responsible for minor molecular rearrangement. That's why one gets pumped up or feels energetic when listening to dance music.

EDM basically refers to Electronic Dance Music. This genre of music was developed typically for discos and nightclubs, where dance is the primary source of entertainment. The music is created by a DJ (Disc Jockey) in a continuous fashion, wherein he/she progresses from one track to another via a synchronized segue or 'mix'.
A notable example for the transition from traditional disco music to dance music is the production of the track 'I Feel Love' by Giorgio Moroder and vocalist Donna Summer in the late '70s. Further, in the same decade, a new genre called Hi-NRG (pronounced as High Energy) was born in the U.S. and U.K.; it was popular for its high tempo (which could reach up to 140 bpm), pumping bass, and resonating vocals. The closest association to Hi-NRG is the Italo disco.
Recent artists in the EDM industry, like Calvin Harris, David Guetta, Tiësto, and Daft Punk are mostly into house music and electro-funk. EDM was promoted through festivals devoted to the popularization of this young genre. It is not more than 30 years old. Festivals like Lollapalooza and Coachella are celebrated annually, and include sub-genres of EDM like house, techno, trance, electro-funk, and the like. Here's a list of all-time popular EDM tracks and their respective artists, in no particular order.
