Dance Music has its own unique features and quirks which make it different to other genres. For example: performing 'live' can actually mean DJing with other people's records; songs generally get signed to a range of labels rather than exclusively to one, and; the songwriter, composer, performer, producer and engineer are often all the same person. These quirks can often mean that dance music should be treated as a special case when it comes to the routes available for generating income.
