What people who started listening to dance music in 2011 call dance music. The rest of the world knows it as dance music, or they just refer to the various genres within it.

Now, EDM refers to the 128 BPM "big room" rage stuff from the likes of Tiesto, Hardwell, Nicky Romero, Gareth Emery, etc. for which 18 year-old frat bros will gladly sacrifice their first borns to hear at music festivals while wearing a neon tank top that says "DIRTY GIRLS LIKE DIRTY BEATS" and rolling on MDMA. For some reason, it's all categorized as progressive house on Beatport.
1: Dude, I am THE biggest Above & Beyond fan EVER. They make the best EDM songs EVER. Like, "Sun & Moon" blew my mind when I was candy flipping at Ultra this year!!!
2: Yeah, it's pretty good, I kinda liked "Alone Tonight" better though.
1: What's that?
2: Kill yourself.

Event Driven Marketing.

Simply put the Event Driven Marketing (EDM) approach is to analyse each customer’s needs and actions in order to determine when they need something (Customer pull) not when you want to sell them something (Product Push).

More formally, Event Driven Marketing (EDM) is the discipline within marketing, where commercial and communication activities are based upon these relevant and identified changes in a customer's individual needs (see Wikipedia).

In this context, an “Event” is defined as a detectable change in an Individual’s circumstances, today, which is relevant and significant, either in fact or in their mind.
An example of EDM might be the deposit of a large amount of money. At this time, the customer is likely to re-assess their financial situation to cater for these new and changed circumstances.

They may consider moving house, purchasing a car, investing, opening a savings account for their child, etc. Thus, if a bank could determine an Event such as this in a customer’s life, it would represent an excellent opportunity to contact them in order to offer appropriate products and services.

An acronym for "Electro house, Dubstep, Moombahcore." Typically used by inexperienced DJs and DAW jockeys to describe the style of music they are trying to produce.
"Hi, I'm a producer from the suburbs. I produce and DJ EDM music. EDM is my favorite kind of music and I want to be like Skrillex and Afrojack when I grow up. I pirate all my software because my mom won't increase my allowance."
