    "Sounds like Optimus Prime & Bumble Bee got together and fucked and had a baby" :tosser:

    EDM / Bass Music... annoying term coined by the Americans to make it sound new.

    I was wondering, if someone is playing an electric guitar and people are dancing to it...is this EDM?

    What a ridiculous term.

    how so? I would argue that the main components of DnB are drums and some sort of bass?

    Same logic. It's dance music. Made electronically. In both genres the clue is in the name.

    there are loads of genres with percussions and bass elements. You say electric guitar with dancing people to it is not EDM. I'm telling you, let's say Rock music - is not drum & bass, even though it contains these two elements :confused: Get where I'm going? Stupid arguing about this though:)

    Yeah I sort of see what you mean. But I was saying by definition, if someone is dancing to music that is coming from an electronic instrument, then surely that music is EDM? I was trying to show how stupid categorising music is. Music is just fucking music, if the sound hits my eardrums and I like what I hear then it's music to me and that's all that matters :).

    EDM actually means Electronic Death Metal, that's why they mosh in raves.
