Electronic dance music

Electronic dance music (also known as EDM, dance music, club music, or simply dance) is a broad range of percussive electronic music genres made largely for nightclubs, raves, and festivals. EDM is generally produced for playback by disc jockeys (DJs) who create seamless selections of tracks, called a mix, by segueing from one recording to another. EDM producers also perform their music live in a concert or festival setting in what is sometimes called a live PA. In Europe, EDM is more commonly called 'dance music' or simply 'dance'.

Ultra Music Festival has been regarded by most as the "Premier Dance event of the world." Taking place in the epicenter of dance; beautiful Miami, Florida, "Ultra" is an event like none other. To many producers, performing at Ultra could be dubbed as the zenith of an EDM career. In 2013, Ultra celebrated it's 15th anniversary with a two weekend, 6 day long celebration that was and is one of a kind in the world of dance music. Speaking from first hand experience, Ultra is an event unlike any other.

Electronic Dance music has grown tremendously in the past few years. Not only is it just music but it brings groups of people together to raves and concerts that think so much alike. The music all gives us the same feeling like we are on top of the world and that we are so important to the djs and everyone in the crowd. It all gives us a feeling that we can fly and our mind takes us to what it feels like a different world. When standing in a huge crowd, listening to what the dj is giving us we never what those tunes and sounds to end. We just want it to keep going, playing what we the fans love to hear. Never do dj's flaunt what they have but the do flaunt the love they have for their fans. Electronic dance music isn't just music. It is a lifestyle. Its is a family. We all unite as one.

Calvin Harris is one of my favorite EDM artists, and this is one of his best songs by him, in my opinion.
