Electronic Music is, unsurprisingly enough, music made with electronic instruments, such as synthesizers, samplers and drum machines.
What you use the equipment to make... well that is a very varied thing. Synthesizers and samplers and drum machines are very flexible in the range of sounds they can make, and as such, electronic music is very varied.
Arguably, pure electronic music can be traced back to Kraftwerk (the band, not the troper of the same name), who made Synth Pop music that deliberately exploited its synthetic origins. Kraftwerk was one of, if not the first act that exclusively used electronic instruments to generate their output.
