composers began redefining the concept of instruments and sound

In the early 20th century, composers began redefining the concept of instruments and organized sound, in turn redefining music, with modernism, futurism, and postmodernism, ultimately leading music into a new era. Delia Derbyshire was arguably the first electronic music producer and synthesis of her time. Her revolutionary “Doctor who” theme and seminal album of 1969; “An electronic storm” is recognized by many. The bulk of her production material and influential sound for television and radio programs is still in the BBC Sound archives, but due to BBC copyright, she was never properly credited for her work. By the mid-2000s, dance music was a part of popular culture. Social media such as YouTube and SoundCloud assisted in fueling interest in electro house and Dubstep, popularizing Skrillex with his harsher production style called “bro step”. EDM became heavily influenced by live events. Promoters and venues realized DJs could generate larger profits than traditional musicians. EDM festivals like Electric Daisy Carnival and Defqon grew in size, emphasizing visual experiences, such as video and lighting effects. Major acts like Avicii and Swedish House Mafia were holding concert tours at large arenas rather than just nightclubs. In 2011 “Spin”, announced a “new rave generation” led by David Guetta, Deadmau5, and Skrillex. In January 2013, “Billboard” introduced a new EDM, Dance/Electronic Songs chart, tracking the top electronic songs based on sales, radio airplay, and online streaming. This year’s EDM Conference ‘EMC’ is Jam-packed full of popular, influential Artists. Carl Cox, a house and techno Dj and producer, is a veteran of the EDM revolution. As the king of Ibiza, his long-lived career inspires each and every new DJ and Producer around the world. As the ambassador of the Australian hard style scene, Toneshifterz has a high status on the main stage at Defqon.1. In 2009, he was signed to ‘Fusion’ records and produced the official 2011 Defqon.1 festival anthem ‘Psychedelic Wasteland’, Toneshifterz is set to continue leading the Australian Hard style scene and representing it internationally. Yolanda is cool is the Australian duo extraordinaire, made up of Sylvester Martinez (aka Andrew Stanley) and Johnson “Durango Slim” Peterson (DCUP). Scoring an international chart-topping hit with the house smash “We No Speak Americano” in 2010 they have continued to release top hits one after the other with tracks “Sugar Man” and “Soul Makossa”. With a critically acclaimed album and two decades of Ding experience, this dynamic duo is an inspiration to many young Aussie producers. Recently EDM genres have started evolving and merging with other styles and many new DJs and producers are popping up every day. Similar to electronic dance music, Christian Electronic Dance Music (CEDM), which is also known as Electronic Christian Music, EDM Christian Music, Christian Dance Music, Christian EDM, and CDM is a genre of Christian music and electronic dance music. It follows musical styles closely intact with non-Christian electronic dance music. CEDM emphasis of positive lyrics and culture’s lack of drug use mainly focused on Christianity-based principles, which separates it from non-religious counterparts. To support and foster the CEDM genre, many different groups have been created like Found Beats, Christian Electro Spot, God’s DJs, as well as CEDM Radio.
