Just to say: I've only ever heard the phrase EDM here, so i've spent most of the while since i've been back confused as to what it is.

To answer the q, ambient or chillout.

Ambient would generally seem to be without percussion but then a band like Sigur Ros comes along that straddles both labels. If we are approaching asthetics from separarte genres then your description is accurate, however if we approach it from a solely electronic medium then the description is blurred. Ambient music has it's emphasis on a serene aural soundscape but that does'nt mean that it is always devoid of percussion.

This track is ambient but not neccessarily chillout. The bass line does not lend itself to chillout as well.

Since apparently no one answered this, EDM = Electronic Dance Music.

I don't think I've ever really heard that chillout can have percussion, but ambient can't. This is more or less the case, but not really a definition of either genre. From what I've seen chillout is just a catchall term for all downbeat electronic music, while ambient isn't necessarily just electronic music (also, I suppose it would fall under the chillout category). They're basically the same thing, regardless. Also, Hallucinogen and Shpongle are Psytrance, I believe, but I don't listen to either.

I voted House & Techno. I can't really stand any Trance made since the early Frankfurt days (Eye-Q, Harthouse, etc.), and even that can get pretty grating. Chillout and ambient I like, but not really as much as I do House & Techno, and honestly at this point they barely even count as EDM, because when was the last time anyone even saw a chillout room in a club? I've never even been into a club with one, for me the idea of a chillout room is like one of those anecdotes that your parents always tell you about life before color TV or how they had to walk to school ten miles in the snow, uphill both ways.

I've never really gotten into DnB, and I like some Progressive House DJs, but not enough to pick it as a favorite.

House is where its at. I also am particular to left-house, progressive, and techno. There is just something about that upbeat deep bass that really makes you feel incredible. It makes you feel like you wanna forget where you are and who you are and just dance nonstop. I also can also enjoy it without dancing... although I always end up noding my head up and down like a jackass. I am particularly enamored with Daft Punk, Boys Noize, Paul Van Dyk, Basement Jaxx, among others. Boys Noize tends to deliever EXACTLY what I want to hear from someone in the club, something crunchy that makes me go crazy. Whereas Daft Punk I feel a lot more, sit down and appreciate everything that went into this.

I think trance is my favorite, followed by house.
