EDM Music has surged in the industry in the late 90’s and early 2000’s. It is hard to pinpoint the forefathers of EDM but legends like DJ Tiesto among the others have contributed largely to the genre. EDM is an eccentric genre of music where people just dive into the music and their feet start moving as a reaction. It has to be powerful and thumping.
However, EDM music without vocals is like a smartphone without apps. The whole charm of vocals in the EDM music adds on to the glory of the song. Artists like Nadia Ali, Kirsty Hawkshaw among the others have taken the EDM music to all parts of the world with their song popularity and following.
