    the truth is, is that there are many different EDM's it seems like people create new styles of music everyday, also depends on what you want to listen to, also whether old school or new. Groups and such I recommend are

    Trance/Eurodance/Techno-whatever you wanna call it
    Paul Van Dyke
    Paul Oakenfold
    Ian Van Dal
    Darude
    4 Strings

    Electronica
    Chemical Brothers
    Aphex Twin
    Underworld
    Photek
    Future Sound of London
    Crystal Method
    Prodigy
    Orbital

    Basically just start listening, soon you will find what you like best.

    Also if you want to try a variety of electronica bands, try the Wipeout XL soundtrack, it has nothing but Euro-Electronica.

    Oh yeah and just a personal opinion but American EDM sucks, its all about the Eurod EDM.

    Look, trance and I suppose I should throw in progressive trance too, is more about the melody and the hook. The percussion is usually on the simpler side and of course the bass is important. Techno is all about its sophisticated percussion and big bass. Vocals are important to both but play different roles as you'll hear full and complete vocals in trance and just short samples in techno. And yes to whoever said it's starting to get blurry between the genres, although not quite in the way that was mentioned if I understood it correctly. What we're seeing are deviations and "bastard children" of these core genres such as progressive house, tech-house, tech-trance, etc.

    Examples...
    Trance: Paul van Dyk, Armin van Buuren, Steve Helstrip, DJ Tiesto, Filo & Peri,
    Techno: Umek, Dave Clarke, Carl Cox, Jeff Mills, Speedy J
    Commercial cheese: Ian van Dahl, Darude, Barthezz, ATB, Lasgo

    As for some of the other smaller points brought up...
    Sasha is NOT techno. Listen to Airdrawndagger, Involver, Northern Exposure CDs and such and compare those to a liveset or songs from the techno guys that I mentioned above, you'll hear the distinct difference. You can't really even classify Sasha, I'd just call him his own style :P as he spins and produces an assortment of genres all with his own unique style plus with the times he has moved to different sounds and styles. I will say that he has definitely been more about Progressive as he's been involved with lots of stuff that's encompassed progressive elements.....lots of progressive house, ambient, progressive breaks, breaks, and some trancey stuff. Or if you want to put it into simpler terms, he's boring lol.

    And as for American EDM sucking, just like any other country, we have an abundance of talent who are very well recognized, unless you're telling me the likes of Markus Schulz, Filo & Peri, Christopher Lawrence, Deepsky, Deep Dish, Stephane K, Noel Sanger, John Creamer, and we can't forget Gabriel & Dresden aren't good enough for you. Lots of them in fact get more attention in Europe than they do here since the pop and hip hop culture is so big here in America.
