1 Avicii Avicii Tim Bergling, better known by his stage name Avicii, is a Swedish electronic musician, DJ, remixer and record producer.

I love avicii's mix music

Avicii is the world's best EDM producer

Avicii produces scintillating music, which has a deeper meaning than one thinks. Just listen to The Nights, Waiting For Love, For a Better Day etc. They just prove why he's the very best ever.

Maybe the only one on the list that really makes good music

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

The best of the best.

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

He's incredibly awesome

One word. Clarity

Zeffirelli is overrated and BORING

5 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 ...read 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 makes music.. And he makes sure they hit the chart - Rahesh

He is clearly the best obviously

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

6 Martin Garrix Martin Garrix

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

His every song is unique and the best
marshmello and alnwalker are bit backward than him

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.

Hardwell is the best.

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.

The guy is really good

Wow I love tiesto

He deserves the no. 1 spot.

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

10 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

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

Everything they produce has the sickest bass drops and the underlined songs find a way to make you feel them

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

Steve Aoki is that best. He is the king of EDM

19 Tristam 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

Amazing
