British electronic music and techno artists, including Aphex Twin, Cylob, and Mike Paradinas, have criticised the term IDM. Paradinas has stated that the term IDM was only used in North America.

Dance is generally, though not exclusively, performed with the accompaniment of music and may or may not be performed in time to such music.
