Electronic music is based on attributes of the music itself and not on what's popular. In the 1970s, producers like Brian Eno and Giorgio Moroder were pushing the boundaries for synthesizers and drum machines, bands like Yello and artists like Gary Numan would go on to produce Electronic Music hits even before the commercial advent of MIDI. It was originally constructed by means of electronic instruments such as synthesizers, drum machines and sequencers, and generally emphasizes the unique sounds of those instruments, even when mimicking traditional acoustic instrumentation.
