Electronic Evolution: How the Dance Genre has Changed…

When reviewing Tiësto’s new single, Red Lights for Monday’s blog post, I couldn’t help but realise that electronic music is starting to evolve and shape as a genre.

The track itself features acoustic verses before descending into a funky chorus. But this is also being demonstrated by Avicii’s recent single releases (focussing on country vibes), as well as Clean Bandit feat. Jess Glynne’s track, Rather Be – containing elements of classical music. So, can it be said that electronic music is taking a new direction?

If anything, electronic music is a competitive music genre/industry. True, other music genres are competitive too, but less so (for example, pop). With electronic music, there needs to be an intriguing build-up to the perfect melody of the chorus. Therefore, maybe the addition of a second genre to the track helps to make it unique as a song…

Personally, I think it’s a great addition and turn for the genre. But what do you think? Comment below!
