All Intelligent Dance Music (IDM) holds the common goal of extending the role of dance/electronic musics beyond the dancefloor. IDM artists use the rhythms, breaks and synths of more mainstream artists in new ways, frustrating attempts to dance and forcing listeners to focus on the music. Prominent artists in the genre include Aphex Twin, Autechre, Mouse on Mars, Plastikman, and To Rococo Rot.
