Electronic music has been gaining in popularity for years. In 2017, there are plenty of sub genres, and the styles of the most popular groups continue to change. Maybe you’re not necessarily a fan of electronic music, but it could be that you don’t even realize that you are. When asked, some people might not be able to identify any musicians, yet they would recognize them when told. For example, have you heard of the very popular group The Chainsmokers?
The Chainsmokers are definitely sitting atop the field of popular electronic music musicians in 2017. Do you know of any others? If you keep up with music that is topping the charts, you have certainly heard at least one song by The Chainsmokers, if not more. Maybe your idea of songs featuring electronic sounds is more about bands like Skrillex, but that is just one type.
In this day and age, you can expect this type of music to get even more popular than it is now. Clubs need something to play, don’t they? Plus, if you really think about it, there is a grand opportunity for electronic music and hip hop to merge in various ways. That goes for rock music, too, but that is certainly already happening, as people are going for more softer and subtle sounds. My friend owns a pest control company and he laughs while telling me about his “getting old” musical tastes. I tell him he’s getting soft in his old age.
There is nothing soft and subtle about music put out by Skrillex, but you get the point. Now that you are more familiar with this popular genre of music, check to see what else you might be missing out on besides The Chainsmokers in 2017. You can start there, but there are tons more to listen to as mentioned earlier. Plus, the year is only halfway over, so let’s see who tops the charts over the course of the next few months.
