Indie pop and EDM are sharing more characteristics each day. While both genres are distinctly their own, they certainly borrow from each other, and not just in the form of remixes, but stylistically as well. And if you’re looking for good dance songs, there’s no better genres to lean on.
Dance music is unique in that it creates a lot of space for all players, no matter how small. Artists with little name recognition have astronomical streams on their songs, and people new to the industry can create music with veterans of the genre. There’s a sense of camaraderie and teamwork in a genre that is largely still developing.
Here is some genre blending in the form of a playlist, sampling a bit of EDM and pop artists. CHVRCHES, Little Mix, Nicki Minaj and The XX can coexist and complement Cheat Codes, R3hab and Marshmello for a dance party playlist that will satisfy any crowd.
