-For dance purposes, not necessarily only electronic music.
-Lots of melody, often vocals, buildups, drops.
-3 notable sub-genres: Deep House, Progressive House and Nu-disco (Nu-House)
Deep House
Relaxing beats, light "drops", often (female) vocals
Progressive House
Long and huge buildups, just as huge drops, but usually very light beats and peaceful melodies.
An older house sub-genre, discolike beats
One of the youngest genres of EDM, originated in London, UK.
Unique rhythm and wobble bass, and rewinds.
Devastating and long drops.
Notable subgenres: Brostep, Chillstep (Liquid Dubstep), Drumstep, Futurebass
Okay, this example features a lot of vocal and melody, but still dubstep.
Can't really describe it. More playful beats, "fresh" drops.
Yeah. Skrillex. (He's BROSTEP and not DUBSTEP. K.)
Drumbased beats, drumbased drops. Drumbased pre-drops, drumbased buildups. Vocals are not drumbased (usually).
Futuristic, yet regular beats, often combines oldschool elements with newer or futuristic ones (steampunk). For example: jazz+dubstep
Chillstep, often Liquid Dubstep
Chillstep by itself is not a subgenre, but many people call it so. It's very relaxing, "chill", and has beautiful vocals along with melodies. Liquid Dubstep is chillstep mixed with some light drums, and it makes the listener feel the music "flow".
Doesn't really have many subgenres
Beats can vary from agressive to relaxing, but it's usually some "listening disco music" and basic "electronic sounds"
