As EDM describes an enormously wide range of genres, does it really make sense for it to have an infobox? It's such a broad category that it isn't feasible to point to any specific genres or years as "origins" or to any specific instruments as "typical". It's even more absurd when electro, house, trance, and techno, generally agreed to be genres of EDM, are listed as "fusion genres" or under "other topics". I would opt to have the infobox removed.

Seems too drastic. If you have problem with the genre info then remove that bit and leave the rest intact (not all tidbits in the infobox are a "must have"). What you have now done is use a sledgehammer to kill an ant. Besides, you have already reinstated the image bit so even you inadvertently agree you went too far --Loginnigol 23:15, 26 August 2017 (UTC)
@Loginnigol: I respectfully disagree. My point was that the music genre infobox as a whole was incompatible with an article about a category of music genres, and as such I pointed to all but one parameter as being problematic. I would like to know what you consider the ant to be in your metaphor, as the beginning and closing lines of my first comment make it clear that I took issue with the infobox as a whole. One last thing — the image and caption were added to the infobox after I made my comment; other than being placed there, they had nothing to do with the infobox itself and as such were the only elements that could reasonably be isolated from it.

Semi-protected edit request on 22 December 2017[edit]

Hello! Please add this important information to 'Criticism' section of Electronic dance music article. Thank you in advance!

Many DJs do not write their own music and use the services of the so-called "ghost producers". It happens when unknown musician makes a record and share his credits with a DJ, or even making non-disclosure agreement and not getting into track's title. There is a stigma about ghost production in EDM industry. It's been critisied a lot on internet that it's not fare to buy music and say that it's your own. But still then most of successful DJ's are using ghost producers in order to deliver fresh tracks every week and do active touring. Alexlarichev (talk) 14:28, 22 December 2017 (UTC)

Not done: not a wp:reliable source. There are no Wikipedia articles Ghost producers or Ghost production and we don't link to external websites this way—see wp:WIKILINK. Actually, both links would be just spam. - DVdm (talk) 14:44, 22 December 2017 (UTC)


...remove Electronic Body Music from the Disco section. EBM is an outgrowth of Industrial music and Synth-Punk. What in God's name has it to do with Disco music? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:01, 13 January 2018 (UTC)
And it clearly was not part of the Disco section until User:Semitransgenic changed it two years ago. So please, remove it. EBM ist not Disco. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:28, 13 January 2018 (UTC)
