EDM is a genre like no other. It capitalizes on huge synth lines, dramatically sidechained melody lines, and massive stadium-like drums. We will run through the most time-consuming and detail-oriented stage of the song creation process—Mixing. Note: Keep in mind, these are guidelines not rules. Before you even open of your session you have to go in with a positive and energetic mindset. Go in with reference tracks that are mixed well and are a great end product to aim for. Big artists like Steve Aoki, Krewella, and Zedd are safe bets. Many people may not see the benefit to mixing in the morning, but this is when the ears are fresh. Mixing during this time of day can greatly increase the longevity and endurance of your ears during the mixing process. When you get up, also make sure that you have a large chunk of time to mix.

Electronic dance music EDM , also known as dance music , club music , or simply dance ,  is a broad range of percussive electronic music genres made largely for nightclubs , raves and festivals. It is generally produced for playback by DJs who create seamless selections of tracks, called a mix , by segueing from one recording to another. In the late s and early s, following the emergence of raving , pirate radios and an upsurge of interest in club culture , EDM achieved widespread mainstream popularity in Europe. In the United States at that time, acceptance of dance culture was not universal; although both electro and Chicago house music were influential both in Europe and the United States, mainstream media outlets and the record industry remained openly hostile to it. There was also a perceived association between EDM and drug culture , which led governments at state and city level to enact laws and policies intended to halt the spread of rave culture. Subsequently, in the new millennium, the popularity of EDM increased globally, largely in Australia and the United States. By the early s, the term "electronic dance music" and the initialism "EDM" was being pushed by the American music industry and music press in an effort to rebrand American rave culture. Various EDM genres have evolved over the last 40 years, for example; house , techno , dance-pop etc. Stylistic variation within an established EDM genre can lead to the emergence of what is called a subgenre. Hybridization, where elements of two or more genres are combined, can lead to the emergence of an entirely new genre of EDM.
