DJ Music Genres

Since the 1970s, DJ music genres have developed well beyond the category of standard disco music. Disco remains as a genre in its own right, but more often in the context of classic tracks. DJs now have a significant range of music styles to draw on, each with their own sound. There are even sub-groupings within each style.

Dance genres include house, hardcore, techno, trance, hip hop, leftfield, electro and commercial dance.

The nature of the dance music industry is such that styles often blend into one another. They also develop rapidly. This is due to the efforts of many performers who explore ways to create music that’s both innovative and commercial.

Famous quotes containing the word music:

    Poetry is either something that lives like fire inside you—like music to the musician or Marxism to the Communist—or else it is nothing, an empty formalized bore around which pedants can endlessly drone their notes and explanations.
    F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896–1940)
