Deadmau5 is the best... No more talk... - sam117

He was the first EDM artist that I got into. He also helped me like a lot of other genres. So far, no one has ever toped him! He is number 1 for me, along with Pendulum. - Slipperyjack40

Not worth the hype, but I really don't get why people hate him now, anyways, here he is, definitely deserving of this number 5 spot while slightly screamy and obnoxious to listen to for more than an hour. - Barcaman

He knows to make music.. And sticks to his style.. Make his style a pop music rather changing to some pop styles..

Dirty vibe is life

First off... Just wow. They weren't on this list before I put them here? REALLY!?

Madonna is here and they aren't?

They're amazing live, just so you all know, and they actually love their fans. Their sound is unique while not just blaring randomosity.

Jesus, people!

No.BOTDF sucks for the most part because most of their songs suck and the only good song that they have is Rise and Shine because they put emotion into that song and it is anti-bullying but all other BOTDF songs just suck.-LitSavage

38 Virtual Riot

I first heard EDM on the radio by Skrillex. It seemed pretty good. But now, when I compare Virtual Riot to him, there isn't a choice. Virtual Riot is the best EDM artist, and there is no denying it. Don't believe me? Listen to some of his stuff, like:

Paper Planes

We're Not Alone

One for All, All for One

And newly added:

Talk About It (ft. Desiree Dawson) (Virtual Riot Remix)
