He Never Disappoints With beats and Has A Very Unique Style At Production Which Is Pretty Rare Now A Days, Plus His Lyrics Are Great, Especially In Hey Brother and Wake Me Up, Which Is Still My Favourite Song From Him Despite Out Old They Is Are and He's Still impressing Me With His Latest Songs Which Are, Without You and Lonely Together, I Still Him and Those Songs and He's Still My Favourite Producer Ever.

I love avicii's mix music

Avicii is the world's best EDM producer

I Really Love His Productions and His Music, He Really Is One Of Those Producers That Can Do No Wrong When It Comes To Production.

2 Deadmau5 Deadmau5 Joel Thomas Zimmerman (a.k.a. deadmau5) is a Canadian DJ producer, formerly a web developer, who produces a wide variety of electronic musical genres, such as electro and dubstep, but is best known for popularizing work in the areas of progressive house and electrohouse, along with the genres themselves. more.

There isn't much to say about Mr. Zimmerman, but this man is an influential artist to not just EDM but to the whole music community. His songs' flow never hit a single bump and his style is exceptional. Definitely the go-to artist for EDM. Long live the Mau5!

Most influential and recognized figure in electronic music as well as epic stage presence - RUFNECKD

Deadmau5 is by far better than marshmallow, marshmallow is for teens that don't know where the real elm music is. Deadmau5 can make songs that never are boring with marshmallows terrible beat to then hate the song for being played over and over again

His music is much more stimulating than the other ones in this industry.

3 Calvin Harris Calvin Harris Adam Richard Wiles, known professionally as Calvin Harris, is a Scottish DJ, record producer, singer, songwriter and remixer . He was known with his hit singles like Summer, This Is What You Came For and How Deep Is Love . He also was cheated on by Taylor Swift in their relationship for Tom Hiddleston more.

I've always really liked Calvin. The problem he now faces is that a lot of his songs have become more mainstream (not sure whether by accident or very deliberate) so I'm guessing he may slip down this list soon, but whether it's his 2008 music or 2017 music, I still love it. He's done so many collaborations but still some solos, but they are always mixed well. Whether he's popular or not, I'm still going to be a fan - Aquaturtle

He is clearly the best obviously

He's simply awful. This is what you came for is annoying

I love his music so much

4 Skrillex Skrillex Skrillex is an American (Born in 1988, in Los Angeles, California) EDM producer who is known for popularizing dubstep. He is part of the bands Jack Ü (DJ) and From First To Last (Lead Singer). His album Recess debuted at 4 on the BB200, tying him with Zedd for the highest debut for an EDM album on more.

He is the poster boy for dubstep. Ask anyone who the first person is that comes to mind when hear the word Dubstep. 90% of the time someone will answer Skrillex.

Plus Scary Monsters and Sprites has become a classic in the EDM genre. He's left a big impact on electronic music history.

Skrillex is the best dubstep producer in the universe I wish that when the time will come when skrillex will come on top in edm music

Every song of skrillex has a unique dubstep touch

What. Why is he not at the top. He has the hardest dubstep drops, like a million Grammy nominations, and is just an incredible musician overall.

5 Martin Garrix Martin Garrix Martijn Gerard Garritsen, known professionally Martin Garrix, is a Dutch DJ, record producer and musician.

He has too much talent for a 17 year old.. listen to his signature Animals

When I realised he released Animals at 17, I was shocked. That much talent? Not many 17 year olds can say they've been that successful at that age. Now 20, and he's released so many great tunes - Aquaturtle

Are you kidding me he deserves at least top ten

Listen to animals! He is so talented

6 Zedd Zedd Zedd is a Russian- German DJ known for his hits such as Clarity, Transmission, and Break Free. He is best known for his album True Colors, which has the highest debut on the Billboard 200 for an EDM album (tied with Skrillex's Recess). He is one the the richest EDM artists in the industry.

Zedd is a musical genius. He will be doing soundtracks when nobody cares about edm anymore

One word. Clarity

He's incredibly awesome

Zeffirelli is overrated and BORING

7 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.

He deserves to be in the top 5 at the least!

Absolutely killing his recent sets! Guy needs to be higher up!

Should be number 1

8 Tiesto Tiesto

He is one of the Legends of Dj. But today's generation may like Skrillex or David Guetta but if they really know about the beauty of Edm like pleasing tones overlapping one after other then their opinion may change. Artists who can only produce loud noises may like by many people these days but mostly their songs might be pleasing when you r in a club or u want to party. But if u want to sleep peacefully then artists like Tiesto, Armin, Above & Beyond, Deadmau5, PVD, etc are the best. Listen 'Adagio for strings' of Tiesto (7:23) and u may experience one of the greatest Hallucinations of your Life.

Always felt he moved me more then any other artist. Still love it. Him and Delaney Jane best ever

The guy is really good

He deserves the no. 1 spot.

9 Daft Punk Daft Punk Daft Punk is a French electronic music duo consisting of producers Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter.

Although they are in this industry since the 90's... They still have it in them.. All there songs have a different feel.. Not at all like todays EDM songs.. But songs like aerodynamic, HBFS, the funk, get lucky, lose yourself to dance, robot rock.. I can listen to these songs all day!

... Why are they 17? Top 5 at least... Jesus whats wrong with you people - gerardothedude

12 The Chainsmokers The Chainsmokers

I actually really like their music. Before closer got really popular, I listened to Roses, Don't Let Me Down etc and I really fell in love with their music. They make really good tracks and their beat is so good - Aquaturtle

THEY SUCK SO MUCH! Closer is probably the worst song I've ever heard. WHAT THE HELL ARE THEY DOING HERE?!

Sure their attitude isn't the best, but their music is amazing. Sure Zedd and Avicii are good, but the Chainsmokers music is the best

Chainsmokers are good, but where are Cheat Codes? - DJvedar1234

14 Nicky Romero

Awesome artist

He is world no.7 dj and soon will be number 1 because he's great...

15 Tristam

Apart from the amazing sounds he creates, the lyrics are what make him so special. He shares a very relatable situation with every song, and even though they have kind of depressing stories behind them, they are indeed inspiring. He's definitely the number one for me



16 Nero Nero Nero are an English electronic music trio, specialising in dark vocal dubstep, electro, drum & bass and drumstep, consisting of Daniel Stephens, Joseph Ray and Alana Stephens (née Watson). They are well known for creating a wide variety of styles of dubstep and drum and bass, combining deep vocals more.

Have you heard "Doomsday" by Nero? It'll completely changed your impression of him, for the good.

Best ever

17 Alan Walker

This guy is an amazing newcomer... Can't wait for more from him

...he's so low, can't believe it. Listen to Faded, Sing Me To Sleep, or other songs. He rocks!

He's so young. I think 1 of his tracks might get more views than gangnam style. He is on a good way of doing it

Ghost producer smh

He is the best

20 C2C

Mello brings something unique to the table with his brand of future bass and trap. Do not overlook this guy

He really tries to make his fans happy.

He should be rate above zed

28 Krewella

Fell in love with every single song they released. They're songs are amazing!

Number 1 best krewella. LIVE FOR THE NIGHT, Krewella and will be 1.

A lot of edm heads hate on Krewella, but are amazing live and they actually sing and write their own lyrics. I know they are not the best DJ's, but their songs are amazing

29 Dillon Francis

Saw him at DAS this year and damn dude that's all I can say! #plur

The Top 5 Dillon Francis Songs (Because I Can)

5: Bun Up the Dance (ft. Skrillex)
4: Bruk Bruk
3: Get Low (ft. DJ Snake)
1: Not Butter

30 Porter Robinson

Easily the best. To see his worlds tour live was like being put in a dream where I was put on a quest. Emotional and euphoric.

Only saw half his set before rain cancelled the rest and it was still the best show I've even seen

I'm surprised Porter Robinson is 50...honestly he deserves so much more.

How is he only 32?

A true role model to aspiring edm djs and producers like me...he should be top ten. I like his creativity when it comes to his dj sets and the atmospheres in his tracks are just legit!

36 Major Lazer

Kings of dancehall!

One of the best EDM groups out there

37 Nucleya

Best Edm producer of india

He should be way higher on the list. He is better than Alan Walker and most EDM creators

I think he should be first, he is better than most generic DJs

39 Diplo Diplo Thomas Wesley Pentz, better known by his stage name Diplo, is an American record producer, rapper, singer, songwriter and record executive based in Los Angeles, California.

Diplo's songs mash-up some funky tunes, strong ballads and sometimes irresistible melodies that stick in your mind for ages. Revolution is a classic, Jack Ü is a breath of fresh air to the EDM scene and he drives Major Lazer to different heights.

Trust me, we have not heard the best of Diplo. This man deserves to be in the top 10, at least breaking into top 20!

If u kno...according to the most followed music magazine.. Diplo is the 5th best dj

40 Jack Ü

The best music that I have ever witnessed

41 Galantis

Galantis is on the rise!

Super under-rated

no money

42 Approaching Nirvana

Approaching Nirvana is seriously one of the best groups I've ever heard of. They usually make EDM music, but they also make other beautiful electronic music. - The01Bro

43 Benny Benassi
44 Pegboard Nerds

Love every one of their songs

45 Madeon

The Adventure album, enough said.

Insanely talented and worked on Lady Gaga's album. Remixed Raise Your weapon by Deadmaus and produce and incredible track called Technicolor in which he trys to tell a story through music

46 Savant

Savant is exceptionally different because he puts so much detail into every single edm track, and you can really hear the effort he puts into the songs. Orphan, Splinter, The Arcade 2013 and Rise Up are my favourites!

Are you retarded? Savant is top 3 edm producer ever

"The change EDM needs" - hurrhurrman

Number 1 in my opinion. I listened to Savant for years and really figured out his style. Every track has his unique and eleboarte touch. His diverse selection of styles and genres makes him the one of the most talented and unpredictable producers of this age. Not to mention his exceptional skill with melodies delivered by his signature 8-bit synth. With the ability to rapidly produce and release new tracks, Savant has created a cult-following that will only become larger. He's called Savant for a reason, don't sleep on this guy. Much love to Vinter from Canada❤
