Top 10 Greatest Electronic Artists


The Contenders: Page 5

81 Celldweller

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?!

Insanely good at making electronic music with orcestrial elements and du step. Amazing singer you have to check him out.

82 Venetian Snares
83 Tristam & Braken

These are actually individual artists but when they come together, they make really awesome music. Songs like Flight and Frame of Mind are good examples of their awesome work.

I'm not really a big fan of Frame of mind, but I do like once again, I remember, and till its over. - Nick-brick8

Tristam is the bomb

84 The Orb

Latest album is great and a return to form.

85 Röyksopp

Get them into the top 10! Their music is far too creative and inspirational to carry on being overlooked the way it is. - Entranced98

These guys have a warmth in their music that is hard to find in the fjords of Norway

Definitely underrated. Worth a listen by far --especially their album: Melody AM

Has it all to make it waay ahead in the list... Definitely underrated

86 Alesso

This guy translate music into gold!

87 Major Lazer


88 DJ Nebir
89 Kashiwa Daisuke

He hasn't got a comment so I thought id add one for him/her...

90 World's End Girlfriend
91 Tangerine Dream

Tangerine Dream 40 behind Skrillex and Deadmau5, come on people?! Skrillex and mau5 may be popular, but if you look at the musicality and production quality Aphex Twin and Tangerine Dream are light years ahead of the artists today. AFX and TD were musical pioneers and engineers who spent countless hours crafting their own electronic instruments and coercing music out of them. Skrillex and Deadmau5 are just two guys sitting behind a computer who happen to be turning the charts, yeah they're talented, but their not bloody pioneers. It's like comparing Michael Bay to Stanley Kubrick.

If I had one album to take with me on a deserted island, it would be Ricochet by Tangerine Dream.

How is this so low? They literally have a hundred albums. No joke! - Aragorn98

Should be top 3! Go back and listen to Phaedra and Rubycon, albums released in the mid-70's, before Skrillex and Deadmau5 were even born. This is why we have YouTube - so you can listen to music from ALL eras and hear where todays artists came from. So much more influential than half the top ten on this list. Seriously.

92 Alan Walker

His songs are great and his beats are really cool

His songs are hearth torching

He really cool

99!? He created one of the best electronic hits of the decade. Plus many of his songs are getting a lot of attention. It’s very disappointing to see him at such a low level - fitemeillreku

93 Tristam

He deserves to be in the top ten. He portrays his true feelings and follows his heart rather than money, in addition he also puts a lot of effort into his music.

I mean this guys a legend


94 Orbital

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)
Never (Another beautiful track)
Where is it going? (Last track off the latest album, and I think the best)

Can't believe Orbital are down here, try listening to the back catalogue

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.

Halcyon on and on + straight sun = epic.

These guys are top notch, check out their boiler room set or glasto sets.

95 009 Sound System

Although many will disagree because "With a Spirit" is what people have dubbed the 'YouTube's national anthem' because it's constantly played as a default song, I believe their music really lifts the soul :) Definitely deserves a higher spot on this list!

96 Hardwell Hardwell Robbert van de Corput, who performs under the stage name Hardwell, is a Dutch big room house and electro house DJ and music producer.


Hardwell's sets are so energetic!


LOL just because someone is ranked #1 on DJ Mag doesn't mean that he's the best producer out there.

97 LCD Soundsystem

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.

98 M83

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.

100 Ephixa
