Top 10 Greatest Electronic Artists
The Top Ten Greatest Electronic Artists
Even a brainless monkey will no that daft punk are the true essence of electronica. There should be a statue of them in every city in the world!
Legendary artists. They did popularize electronic music after all
With out a shout of a doubt, the best electronic duo ever! They made more memorable songs than ANY electronic artist ever! You cannot argue with "Da Funk, " "One More Time, " "Aerodynamic, " "Harder Better Fast Stronger, " "Robot Rock, " "Technologic, " & "Too Long, " because they are all the pioneer of the electronic genre!
Daft Punk has opened my mind to music. All other electronic "music" nowadays just sounds like a collection of noise that should be featured in a "Call of Duty" montage. Daft Punk's music has soul; unlike the other music being produced today by the world's top "artists". I quote artists because people attempting to recite bad poetry while a metronome drowns out their vocals is not music. The same goes for the people who think computer noises are better than real instruments that Daft Punk includes in their songs. They've hit every genre right on the head and revolutionized every single thing they've touched upon. They're up there with legends; perhaps past them.
He revived the electronic genre scene and his talent shows in his original mixes and his remixes. He can be considered the "Kanye West" of the electronic scene with his oversized ego but a genius when it comes to his art.
I wouldn't EVER compare deadmau5 to that knob we call Kanye West. Deadmau5 is actually inspiring, and doesn't call himself what he isn't. - PositronWildhawk
Why is Deadmau5 no. 19!?! Has anyone hurd of em. He's amazing listen to strobe, aural pynapse, ghosts n' stuff then come back here and vote for him!
Dead mau5 should definitely be higher. He makes very good music. Strobe is personally my favorite. Ghosts and stuff is also a very good song.
Deadmau5 is the most realistic character in the "Electronic Music Scene" and definitely at least deserves #2 if not more so.
I Am glad he has not let any of his inner struggles as well as other people, and artists affect him too much instead he's very defensive, and he should be the world is envious of his throne.
Its absurd to put skrillex or deadmau5 above this dude. He truly is a living talent with electronic music techno, acid, ambient you name it this dude can do it he is an early pioneer of this stuff and a big influence to electronic artists on the charts. The stuff he put out in the 90s shouldn't even exist in the 90s almost as if he came from the future. He can have a song with 100 different noises and they all seem to be perfectly placed where they should be genius.
Most of the artists here have been directly influenced by this man. Aphex Twin & Kraftwerk are the two acts that have shaped electronic music into what it is today.
HAHAHA Owl City at number 2 before Aphex Twin HAHAHA
Aphex Twin changed the face of electronica forever because he's a real artists who creates to express himself. He said it, the most important thing in music is emotion. Would Owl City say that? No. He doesn't even believe that himself.
Ask yourself, who in this list is going to be remembered for centuries? Whose music and legacy will be studied in colleges and universities around the world in the same way Mozart, Beethoven, Shakespeare, and other legends are in the years to come? Who not only changed the game but is completely irreplaceable and is the only person in the world capable of making music the way he does? This guy right here. However, I suppose I understand why he's not number 1 on this list as a lot of these artists are here because of their current popularity or whatever. Come back in a decade and this list may change dramatically- but you'll certainly see him still here on this list, probably closer to number 1.
He truly is great. I feel that people only hate on him because he's gotten so popular all of the sudden, and a lot of stupid people think that he's the only artist that makes electronic music (although they think all electronic music is dubstep). Don't hate the artist, hate the ignorant mass of people that don't know anything about electronic music, and make skrillex look bad. (If you truly don't like skrillex because you don't like him music, and not because of his awful fan base, then I have nothing against you. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. However, If you barley listen to any of his music, and you just don't like him because he's gotten more mainstream and has an awful fan base, then grow up. Judge someone's music on their actual music, and nothing else. )
Skrillex is one of the best DUBSTEP artists out their and yes I say Dubstep. Its sad how some to many of his fans don't even know that dubstep is a sub genre to electronic music. To the electronic music is dubstep. And this may make skrillex look bad. However on the other side if you just hate skrillex because he has too much fame then just call yourself a hipster (ha ha hipsters don't call themselves hipsters) Skrillex did a nice job on his new EP with my new Favorite song The Reason. You should check it out. However even if Skrillex is the best Dubstep producer you should check out other sub genres like House or Electronica.
The main reason he's the best is that he knows how to create and combine kick-ass and beautiful in his tracks. That and the influence of his music in the modern society. He reached the point where every electronic artist want to make a remix of his songs ad that's because everybody gets amazed by them.
Better producer than most modern artists, more pioneering than 'Deadmau5' and basically started a whole subgenre of electronic music and kept it to himself. The adolescent bombastic appeal to many of his compositions continue to irk me but his production skills are really top notch, and his mixes pristine. Later releases like EP Leaving show that his music has the potential to mature in interesting ways.
Without Kraftwerk, 100% none of these other bands would have existed.
Have you even listened before voting?
Try just to imagine all these other artist in our time creating electronic music and then Kraftwerk doing it 40 years before.
That is AVANGARDE.( it still is. )
OK, could someone please tell me why the pioneers of electronic music are on #13, under Owl City? I can't imagine someone who doesn't think Kraftwerk are the best... they should be #1 for sure!
Why they are under Daft Punk, I'm not sure. I'm 14 and I'm really into electronic music. I knew that Kraftwerk were the ones who started it all. I went and checked it out and now I'm hooked! If you like electronica, you have to at least know who Kraftwerk is. If you haven't heard anything by them, I suggest you do so ASAP. - Slipperyjack40
Radiohead should be way higher on this list. They completely got me into the genre of electronica. It's just real intelligent music and Radiohead are way better than Skrillex.
They got awesome tracks like Idioteque, Everything In Its Right Place, Where Blue Birds Fly and Feral
I admit they are more of an alternative rock band, but their electronic songs (15 Step for example) are some of their best and they deserve to be higher. - Duality
Radiohead is like my favorite band granted they are mainly alt rock but they are still really great, but I think Thom Yorke's solo work and his side band Atoms for peace are more in the electronica genre.
Massive attack created the urban scene in Britain. And have some absolute classics up their sleeve like unfinished symphony how are these guys not higher?
Their quality is objective, that may sound condescending, but please, listen to Blue Lines and prove me wrong
Daft punk are annoying, owl city is just a one hit wonder, so massive attack are the best
Beautiful music with meaning and a million styles
An artistic genius through-and-through. Porter has been pushing the boundaries of electronic music ever since he burst onto the scene as a teenager in 2010 with his hit single 'Say My Name'. Watching his evolution as an artist is nothing short of extraordinary, and I daresay; revolutionary. From the first release on Skrillex's OWSLA label; his 2011 EP, Spitfire, which was hard-hitting, in-your-face EDM, to 2012's timeless progressive house track; 'Language', which marked the first of many shifts in style for Porter as an true artist. He continued the melodic/progressive house trend with 2013's collaboration with fellow artist, Mat Zo, titled: 'Easy'. Then in 2014 he dropped his seminal debut album: 'Worlds'. Which was a major departure from all his previous works, paying homage to 80's synths, and pulling influence from video game and anime OST's alike. While retaining dance music's heavy drums, the sweet synthpop melodies accompanied by vast soundscapes found throughout 'Worlds' ...more
Porter should be number one, hands down. He doesn't make "sick beats", he pioneers new sounds that have real meaning. With luscious synths, unpredictable chord progressions, and hard hitting drums, (not to mention live shows! Seriously! ) Porter is quickly revolutionizing the world of electronic music. Just listen to the first track on worlds and you'll understand.
This guy is a musical genius! At a young age, and SELF--TAUGHT, look what he can make! Just listen to his album "World." It is amazing and a truly beautiful album. Don't listen to all those copycat DJs, they flat out don't know a thing compared to Porter Robinson. He's a true musical genius, and should be at least in the top five choices. If you love electro music, please take my word and listen to his album "World." It wouldn't hurt to try
If you've ever seen a live Porter Robinson show you would know what the hype is. My first time seeing "Sad Machine" live I was on my friend's shoulders and balled my eyes out. It is so much more different than the insane strobe lights you'll see at Zedd, for example. His visuals have meaning, each tells its own story. Oh AND HE SINGS HIS SONGS LIVE. he has an incredible voice if he isn't amazing enough already. A genius in my view
How can you put them to 8 position? They must be at the 1 position! I think this guys are more better then any other electronic group in this top 10, come on people, they are fathers of this genre!
How are these guys down here! Are you people mental? The best live act known to man and just a godly band all round ;) forever prodigy
The Prodigy are the greatest of all time because they bridged the gap between alternative rock and electronica and managed to create some of the greatest electronica jams ever conceived. They are also basically the founders of the rave so most electronica artists owe their souls to the Prodigy. - Duality
Definite #1 in my opinion. The prodigy just have more classic songs than any other electronic artists, and their music is incredibly diverse and imaginative. Besides, if you asked Skrillex and Deadmau5 who the best electronic artists of all time were, they would probably either say Aphex Twin or the Prodigy.
From the perspective of an avid listener to bot the dubstep and electronica genres, I was a huge fan of Pendulum's drum and bass sound and Knife Party's emergence into the electronica and club music genre has made a significant impact in my opinion. They have some really strong beats to dance to in addition to their unique sound all their own. Internet Friends is just the beginning but move into Rage Valley and the new Haunted House EP and you'll truly discover the talent these individuals possess
These guys, especially Rob Swire, are absolute masters at their craft. In today's age of electronic music, very few can get to these guys' level of skill.
Knife Party knows exactly what they're doing, and what they are doing is great. "Centipede" is a staple of brutal electronic music, and the reggae beats of songs like "Bonfire" and "Give it up" are surprisingly nice combinations with electronic music. Knife Party, in my opinion, has not reached its peak, and has a long way to go.
You can have no regret that knife party brings the pack of electro and dubstep to a beast
Moby is my favourite electronic artist. I like a lot of music in many genres, and Moby is my favourite.
Moby has highly underrated rapid electronic beats, contrasting with breathtaking ambient pieces, and has powerful and excellent vocals, and hires the guest vocalists from the very top of the list. And what better artist to see live!
His songs have catchy beats like in "Go! ", ambient beats like in "Sunspot" that take you to another world, meaningful lyrics like in "We Are All Made Of Stars" and thought provoking music videos like "In This World".
Moby never let's me down with his music. I love ALL of his albums, each one is a masterpiece, from "Play" and "18" to "Innocents" and "Everything Is Wrong".
Moby has committed a lot to his music to make it unique and excellent. I would say, with all honesty, that Moby put more into his music than the Beatles. And if you automatically vote that down, then fine, be nonsensical, you clearly don't appreciate Moby's all-round ...more - PositronWildhawk
I thought you would make this list PositronWildhawk. Because you like electronic music. - Userguy44
I simply cannot believe that Moby only got 0.8% of the vote!
Seriously, Moby is so underrated; things like Daft Punk are simply obsolete when you look in Moby's direction.
Where would we be without "South Side", "In This World", "Extreme Ways", "Raining Again", "Sunspot", "We Are All Made Of Stars" and several other wonders of musical genius! His upbeat electronic rock and his laid back ambient are both unbeatable!
Listen to Moby as much as you can, get the albums "Play", "18", "Hotel" and "Destroyed"; and your ears will love you for all eternity!
I grew up with Moby, and all of my life, I have been trying ever since to find a music artist that is like him. So far, I can firmly say that there's no music artist quite like Moby. He is definitely my all-time favourite music artist EVER! I'm still looking for a music artist quite like Moby, and will probably not find someone quite so awesome! He is the most unique music artist I know, and definitely the best!
Moby is not only one of the greatest electronic artists, but one of the greatest artists of the modern era. He redefined and brought electronic music to a new audience with "Play" and "18", while he made one of the most transcendental, heartbreaking, and wonderful albums ever with his masterpiece "Animal Rights". Truly one of the most overlooked and influential artists of our time.
You don't even need to know the name of the song to know it's Zedd when you hear it! His style may not appear different and unique the first time you hear it, but as you listen to more of his music, you soon notice things that make his style unique.
He is great.
His different style really stands out among other artists, and the way he has brought singers in to feature in his songs is amazing. Definitely a great buy if you are beginning to enjoy house music.
I don't know why but I love his songs. I like how not all of his songs are mindless dance songs, but some actually have passion (not saying every dance song doesn't has passion) but he brings a really good mix of music to the table. - Aquaturtle
Great Artist with better and better songs with every release!
Sorry there Captain Hipster but Pendulum IS mainstream. In Australia. Still I'm surprised that they aren't higher on the list. They're music is some of THE best out there. It's a crying shame they ended the group. Oh well. At least we have Knife Party now.
Pendulum is by far the best. Way better than Daft Punk and Deadmau5! I never knew it was possible to cross electronic dance music with rock music, and still be good! Vote for who you want but Pendulum is #1 for me. Also, Aphex Twin is a close second. - Slipperyjack40
Um, how the hell are skrillex, owl city, and deadmau5 ahead of pendulum. This list is being made by people who only listen to mainstream electronic
Perhaps the furthest drum and bass from just loud noises. Bravo, Pendulum. You made real music. Good for you.
Good Faith. Adventure. The two best electronic albums I've ever heard. Madeon.
Madeon is basically a prodigy when it comes to electronic music. His production skills and understanding of sound design are literally out of this world. I mean have you listened to his debut album? It's EASILY on par with, if not better than Porter Robinson's 'Worlds' and the guy is only a mere 20 years old! Also, was anybody else around when he was pumping out mind boggling remixes at the tender age of 16? I mean, the guy is just amazing...
To be honest Madeon is literally 2x younger than many of these artists and he's making music just as good, or better. He has a distinct style to his songs, which is hard to find nowadays with many artists using the same kinds of sounds.
Madeon definitely deserves to be in the top ten. He is an extremely talented producer with very original synths and melodies, and not to mention much younger than other producers. I can listen to the Adventure album forever and never get tired of it. He is simply one of a kind.
Absolutely incredible. Every one of their songs is an adventure. My personal favorite tracks of their are Starve the Ego, Feed the Soul and Carry the Sun. Their songs aren't too over the top, but they aren't too tame either, and best of all, they know how to use vocals in an electronic song in a way that does not detract from the beats, but adds to them. The only bad part about them is that there still isn't enough of their music.
Amazing! Love every song by these guys. Their new album Love Death Immortality is just mind blowing. Not to mention that even some of their older songs are just as amazing, like fortune days and we can make the world stop. Greatest of them all, this band.
If you don't believe they are the best, listen to "Fortune Days" by The Glitch Mob. Be prepared to have your mind-blown.
They are by far the best artist on this list, their music is perfect. They don't only do one type of song like most others do, and they are all the best.
Galvanize Hey Boy Hey Girl Believe Swoon don't Think...
The test and the private psychedelic is the best song I've ever heard in my life! The chemical brothers are always making psychedelic master pieces much greater than that of daft punk or deadmau5.
"The holy trinity" of Exit Planet Dust, Dig Your Own Hole and Surrender are without a doubt the greatest electronic albums of the past 30 years. Should be top 3 definitely, past skrillex!
One of the most interesting acts known to mankind. Handling perfectly both harder and melodic compositions. The true masterminds of electronica.
If tender and emotional chillstep and future bass is your thing, you will love Illenium. - Atham
Coolest future bass sounds.
SO underrated! This guy is definitely one of the best EDM singers. Frequent uploads, catchy and enjoyable sounds, meaningful lyrics, making creative stuff with the genre. This guy seriously need more exposure, along with some semi-popular artists like Marshmello and Deadmau5. - MChkflaguard_Yt
The best female vocalist I've ever herd. Screw all the female pop stars that gets so much publicity, Bjork's music is a work of orchestra & as well a piece of art. Anyone who says other does not know art in music whatsoever.
One album: Homogenic. An album that combines real life strings with icy beats and electronics to make a tundra of emotion. It's THE best electronic album ever and possibly one of the best albums ever PERIOD.
She is the best and really unclassifiable. Incredible blend of human emotion and machine music.
God are people crazy Zedd is higher than this Icelandic princess
This list badly needs people born before 1995 to rate on it. Some fantastic electronic acts criminally low here. I think I'll have to refresh and vote for massive attack, new order and portishead and chemical brothers now
Boards of Canada are my number 1. Using original production methods to achieve a unique electronic sound should get them into the top 10, their masterful execution gets them 1st in my eyes.
Are you serious people? Boards of Canada is amazing! They are very creative and entertaining to listen to. Please check them out, there's more to electronic music than EDM. - Slipperyjack40
Boards of Canada are just in a league of their own entirely. Their signature sound (distorted synths, hip-hop breakbeats, eerie samples) is nothing like any other music. To anyone reading this list who hasn't listened to them: do yourself a favor and listen to Music Has the Right to Children or Geogaddi in their entirety. You won't be disappointed.
One of the, if not the best artist I've ever heard. The style, the class, the rhythm, the beat. It all adds up to make an extraordinary experience.
When your rank in the top 10 of top electro bands with only ONE album... nero is the best electro band, when talent is there...talent is there.
Nero is the best! I love doomsday they should totally be at the top of this list!
This guy is king with his awesome promises remix
He inspired so many fantastic artist and is a master at blending genres. Probably the most talented guy in the game, pathetic to see him this low
How can flying lotus be 38th? he's easily #1 hands down
He is L. A beat king, he make a mix for Grand Theft Auto V and it become 1 of 20 best DJ mixes 2013, I love him
G-string is better than the actual thing. Haha. But really. These songs are so amazing that I am in constant awe whenever a new song is released by them. They are an all around great music group. I recommend it 110%
It's just a great name!
The first lp was Magnetic Fields. Since that time fan for about 40 years. 😊
This group is the new electro. They are changing things by their music and the quality of their tracks. Hard Rock Electro is the best
Justice has been definitely deserves a spot next to daft punk. With their innovative style and popular songs they definitely should not be lower than top 5.
Justice presence can't be ignored.
Justice has such a unique sound they deserve all the respect in the world... not to mention the all time kings of intros!
Bassnectar's music combines multiple electronic genres into one to create amazing masterpieces of sound unique to him only. He should be in the top ten just because his music has the capability of making you want to dance and relax at the same time.
How is bassnectar not in the top 10? Nothing beats seeing him live. close your eyes take a trip and never come home
More musical talent than many of the metal musicians who inspired him
One of the best live acts ever.
Fatboy slim is quality early electronic music!
A unique blend of funk and electronica make this person one of my top ten.
I thought he was a rapper. - PhoenixAura81
Fatboy Slim should definitely be top 20!
Gorillaz aren't Electronic artists - EastZombie
No, it's alternative that Gorillaz are not. They are very much electronic (more specifically, trip hop). - Adrian_4
I think Zomboy should be right under Skrillex. He's excellent at the art of dubstep, and is just a really cool guy.
What?! He should be in top 10!
He should definitely ranked higher, especially since he is just amazing with his collaborated music.
What? Right after Skrillex is this guy!
This guy's style of electronic music is fresh and unique, much unlike the current trends. His tunes are constantly stuck in my head, and he made a couple of the most recognized electrical tunes. With every work, you can tell just how hard he worked on them, too. Another thing that sets him aside from the rest of the group is his genuine vocals (Laura Brehm) in his songs.
Not 1st? However, (this is just my opinion) Laura Brehm's vocal just ruins the song - fwed
This is what I think is by far the one, his songs are constantly stuck in my head, and only in The Fat Rat's case, that is a good thing. Also, people recognize the instrumental chorus of Unity. Very underrated.
This guy... I have a lot of his music in my playlist on SoundCloud
84? You people think Zedd, Owl City, and Nero are better than Portishead?
3: The Prodigy
4: The Chemical Brothers
5: Brian Eno
6: Daft Punk
7: Massive Attack
9: Fatboy Slim
10: DJ Shadow
And GUS GUS
Just talented. Meshes two genres who have no place in the same room, seamlessly.
Lindsey managed to combine electronic/dubstep and classical violin to create something extraordinary. I'd never thought that two styles from opposite sides of the spectrum could coexist so well. Her original songs such as Roundtable Rival, Shatter Me, and more completely blew me out of the water. I commend her for her creativity and hard work.
She's got mad skill
She is extremely GREAT and very Unique I'd recommend her for all music lovers
I'm flabbergasted Feed Me isn't in the top 10. Their hard hitting, fast-paced beats are what got me into electronica. Listen to a few of their songs like Green Bottle or Grand Theft Ecstacy and you'll understand why they deserve better than 17th place.
What the crap!?!? How can Feed me be no. 55? Everybody who reads this, go and listen to Death by Robot or Pink Lady, you'll be amazed, I'm sure of it! Thank you
I enjoy so many of Feed Me's songs, they all end up stuck in my head every once in a while. Let's get him in the top five! - Nebby_
What talent! Feed me deserves top 10. Their music is characterized by catchy sounds and heavy, quick beats.
Deserves to be number 1, he makes amazing music and is one of my favorite music artists.
88th place? I know how the voting system works, but this guy honestly deserves a way higher spot. His production skills are godlike. - wrests
My favourite musician. I've listened to Muse, Deadmau5e, Pendulum, Prodigy, Owl City, Linkin Park, a little Skrillex, and I do not understand how most of these are higher on the list, enough about that.
Celldweller is fantastic at mixing genres, and the focus of his music seems to be mostly electronic rock, the music is emotional, tuneful, creative, fantastic production values and inspiring.
If you like electronic rock, you could do a lot worse than looking him up!
How is he so low?!
Who the heck is Zedd? Burial is ace, his last release Rival Dealer is brilliant.
No one even comes close to Burial... This list is too mainstream
Burial deserves a much higher place here
Lmao Everyone voting is under 12. No good artists are High up. Besides AFX.
Hero, Disconnected, Here it Comes?
#Pegboard Nerds YouTube channel
He is the best
Ever heard Razor Sharp! Yes one of a underraded artist
Nostalgia blast! - Phantasian
Amon Tobin is awesome and unique. If you like Aphex Twin, Orbital, Boards of Canada, The Orb and the like, you'll like Amon Tobin. Or if you like Jazz, give Amon Tobin's Bricolage a listen. Or if you just came here to upvote your current favorite top-40 EDM (read: progressive house) or dubstep dj, you should listen to Amon Tobin anyway. After you've listened to Leftfield or Burial respectively that is (and Kraftwerk for that matter, and Brian Eno, and I could go on), because you all sound like self proclaimed Rock fans who don't know The Beatles.
. Amon Tobin 150°? Is this a joke?!?!?! Should be in top 10 at least!
160°? This is a real Genius, should be in top ten!
New Order ranked bellow Skrillex? What a disgrace! New Order has been highly influential in dance music, they may sound a little dated because they're from the 80s. But that means nothing. Younger listener should be listening to electronic music that had actual effort put into it rather than dubstep that was thrown together.
Never complained about New Order, definitely weird how its all the way down here
Holy Moses, New Order, Rank At Sixty Four? One Of The Best Band Ever On The Planet.
Please.. NEw order has had more hits than majority and should be in top 20.. not hanging down at 56
Great Music, Great Vocals, Great Vibes. An artist that only comes around once in a lifetime.
Best electronica indie artist.
WHY ARE THEY LAST! I literally came to this list, expecting to see them in the top 10!
Best. Electronica artist. Ever.
Trance music is tiesto
He should be in the Top 3 of this list
Greatest music artist of ALL TIME besides Metallica in my opinion. He should totally be higher on this list because he revolutionized the EDM industry, especially with trance music. Also, Suburban Train is the greatest song of all time. His new songs are also great and his music makes him the highest earning DJ of all time. He also made an awesome clothing line with the company Guess. GET THIS LEGEND HIGHER! It is honestly disappointing that he is number 28 on this list as lf 1/17/19. - PhoenixAura81
I should be able to see Tiesto's name near the top.
Just about everything he's released over his last several albums has been extremely innovative, and his recent soundtrack work is masterful. Few artists can evoke emotion with such strange and alien content.
113th? Unacceptable. He is the single greatest metal/electro artist I have ever herd. His musical works in the devil and blue stahli beyond godly. I don't care who you are or what you think, Blue Stahli is a miracle worker.
Another electronic rock artist that's underrated.Celldweller and Blue Stahli are the best.-DarkBoi-X
My 2nd favourite musician (Celldweller is my favourite) because this guy is really talented but underrated.Just like Celldweller,I like Blue Stahli's unique mix if Electronic music and Rock music.He usually combines Dubstep,Drum&Bass and Industrial with Alternative Metal and Industrial Metal.Amazing artist.No wonder him and Celldweller are signed to the same record label.-DarkBoi-X
Experimental and awesome. - Atham
Very talented IDM artist. He rarely puts out material he dislikes. He can also do EDM music much better than most artists. He should be higher. - Slipperyjack40
Squarepusher should be top 5. He has over 15 albums starting in 1996. Most these other guys were still watching cartoons. Programming wizard, not just repeating loop after loop after loop.. Seriously all, this list has no merit.
Experimental D'n'B mixed with jazz occasionally with some wild bass playing thrown in. Squarepusher is awesome.
This is one of the few examples where there is a band, actual musicians backing up the entire endeavor. Their music is rich, and is worth a better place in this list.
I love these guys, 52 is injustice when skrillex is third and radiohead is on here
Brilliant, electronic music with a punk / new wave ethic.
85? This isn't happening! Why is Orbital so low? They are incredible! They are so much better than those main stream artists. If you rant familiar with Orbital, go check them out. My personal favorite albums by them are Blue Album, In Sides, Snivilisation, and Brown Album. Go listen to them. You won't regret it. It took me some time to get used them. I would recommend In Sides for a beginner. I loved that one instantly. - Slipperyjack40
For the last ten years my ears have been pushed more and more outwards by the smile on my face caused by the Hartnoll brothers (Orbital).
Their music has such variety, and live they are just simply the best.
From hard and fast, to soft and mellow, even a recent touch of dub step. Everything Orbital does, is up to the highest in production standards.
If you have never heard of them, I emplore you to listen to a couple of tracks. I suggest:
One perfect sunrise (Beautiful)
The Box (One of my favorites, listen to both parts)
Nothing left (Listen to both parts for a journey)
Chime (The most well known track, amazing)
Halcyon (YOU MUST LISTEN TO THIS)
Never (Another beautiful track)
Where is it going? (Last track off the latest album, and I think the best)
Why in the world is Orbital #73? They should be in the top 10 for sure; I've never quite heard an electronic duo quite like Orbital.
Can't believe Orbital are down here, try listening to the back catalogue
