A catch-all phrase for, well, music you dance to; music designed for a dancing-oriented market. After the "death" of disco music in the early-80's, the word "disco" was anathema. So new words and phrases were used; "dance music" was one, and a short-lived one was DOR.

Category for electronica (don't call it that) and music one feels as much as listens to. Includes such sub-genres (if you like to classify) as techno, house, trance, ambient, jungle, drum and bass, progressive, hardcore, illbient, trip hop, breaks, and even hip hop.
