Top 10 Monstercat Artists

The Top Ten

1 Tristam

Tristam was there for me back when I was lost in 2012, with "I Remember" and "Too Simple". It was a dark time for me and Tristam didn't try to lighten my life back up, he taught me to embrace what I have. So many artists fake emotions to try to make songs that people enjoy, and Tristam just isn't one of those artists. Every single word that comes out of his mouth (along with every single not that is produced) has its own thought and expression of a different emotion. His songs are filled with sadness, but again, unlike other artists who fake emotions and then make you feel like complete crap, Tristam expresses his emotions, and they're actually dark. Not only that, but he EMBRACES the darkness of the situation, and comforts you. I have yet to hear any other artist write a song that's sad but comforting and embracing. It reminds me of when I found out about one of my best friends who committed suicide. I was with my other friend and after we got the call we just ...more

Tristam. The old Tristam was awesome but the new one.. is... I just.. Can't find the right word to describe him. With his unique Frenchy male voice.. With great inspirational.. True lyrics.. And all those beautiful melodies by his unique sounds, medieval toms, smooth drums... It's so perfect! For the every new song that he give us I get goosebumps and this friendly warmness inside my heart... Can't describe how good the feeling is! I also think his ideas are limitless which makes me sure that he will never fail to amaze me. My favorite songs by him are Empire Of Sound, Sublime and Before We Fade. I also extremely recommend Frame Of Mind, Crave, Far Away, My Friend and The Vine.

Tristam is more than just a legend. He's the king of all. If it wasn't for his brother, there wouldn't be any Tristam now. His French-Canadian accent plus his inspiring lyrics completes it all. And while most artists go to Monstercat, but Monstercat went to Tristam and picked him up.

Inspired me two years ago. Never going back.

2 Pegboard Nerds

I LOVE pegboard nerds. I think its amazing how they make there music, and none of it sounds the same! Which is a good very good thing in this line of business.

Pegboard Nerds are the best monstercat artists. They explore tons of genres and make great danceable music.

Can you really get better than PegBoard Nerds? Their sounds are so unique and diverse. They can pretty much do any genre and excel at it. Disconnected is one of my favorite songs of all time and their remixes, Like Quiet Riot and Hero are jawdropping as well. They're my favorite.

3 Stephan Walking

It's spelled Stephen, not Stephan

I like that he has his own style. He can take any genre and make it strange and unique

I like his style, it is kinda funny, so happy he is making music again.

Dad Rock. That's it. Best Monstercat artist for unique-ness. - AnalogNinja

4 Aero Chord

Aero Chord somehow finds a way to keep changing his style, and every time he does, I absolutely love it! I listen to Until the End before everyone of my games, because it just gets so pumped, and into the zone.

Aero Chord? His music sounds to me somewhat like the ones which legends talk about.

THIS GUY IS INCREDIBLE! Titans is one of the BEST dubstep/trap songs I have ever heard! HE SHOULD BE NUMBER 1!

5 Nitro Fun

Nitro Fun has produced some amazing and catchy tracks, which I adore and listen to regularly.

Every song he releases on monstercat are always so catchy and unique to his awesome style!

Nitro Fun has been gone for a long time, and I love his music. It's super awesome! Go Nitro! - funnysoccerdude11

Nitro man is a boss

9 Rogue

How do you describe rogue. A trap artist. And nobody else in the monstercat roster can nail those massive bass drops like rogue can. The first song I ever listened to from monstercat was flight, so I got into it and went to the soundcloud page and saw that 019 endeavor had come out that exact night. Well. I closed my eyes and scrolled and randomly hit a song called Atlantic by rogue, and it fueled my love for monstercat. In my opinion Atlantic will always be one of rogues major hits, unfortunately it gets no love. It's so crazy, going from heavy trap to light electro. It's done so beautifully that I cannot find any other song from monstercat that gets me as pumped as Atlantic. Whenever I listen to the newer album mixes and I hear trap, I automatically know it's rogue. And when I hear the podcast and Atlantic is thrown in there, I wanna just break out dancing. Rogue will always be the underdog from monstercat, with little recognition, he never forgets about his music and understands ...more

So, Rouge really is #1 when it comes to trap music. That's his strong point, and he's pretty good at it saying that is an big understatement. The best thing about his music style are the bass drops. I love them, and they almost broke my headphones! When your headphones are about to break, you know you're listening to a masterpiece of a song.

I will never forget the first time I heard Rogue - Exogenesis. I instantly fell in love with Monstsercat, and even after all these years, Exogenesis is still my favorite song EVER! Along with Pegboard Nerds, Rogue is my favorite Monstercat artist.

All his songs are good.

10 Project 46

Project 46 has created some pretty amazing songs like "Limitless" and " Ekho", definitely one of the best house creators out there

Project 46 is pretty much Monstercat's House artist. They are a legend

The Contenders

11 Televisior

They bring the groove and funkiness in their music, one of the best in my opinion.

He is the ONLY artist that does Nu Disco, and Nu Disco is like in my Top 10 best types of music.

Best! I love automatic and neon

If you know what I'm talking about, good for you.

12 Varien

Varien collaborates with many amazing artists, his instrumental style is amazing, dark and catchy. Go Varien

Varein has more of a dark, heavy, instrumental style that no one else in the monstercat family has.

13 Hellberg

His music inspires and has amazing lyrics. He had one of the most listeNed to songs on the newest album he is sick and a rising star.

The greatest Monstercat artist of all time. His songs are so empowering.

Always releases fire tracks, should be at least 2

The Girl and I'm Not Over

14 Insan3lik3

One of the original artist of Monstercat!

You can't beat the classics, like 'French Fries' and 'Bad Pitched'.

They are so good Bad Pitched is still one of my top 10's

15 Mr. Fijiwiji

I think that Mr. Fijiwiji should at least be in the top 5 or 6. I LOVE every monstercat artist out there, but Mr. Fijiwiji in over the top. I think all of his songs are very creative.

Mr. Fijiwiji (Amazing name by the way) has songs that are deeper then headbangers, not that I don't like them, but the Fij takes it to a whole other level.

Out of all monster at artists I think that mr.Fijiwiji is the best and his song cinicle from monstercat 12

16 Muzzy

Definitely number 1, this guy brings a unique Pendulum-like vibe to the table, never could listen to one of his songs without becoming ridiculously pumped and happy!

Just listen to calling out...

Come on, no. 24 - really? He deserves to be in the top 5!

Best Drum and bass along with pendulum - akyreaper

17 Noisestorm

Noisestorm is a talented artist that needs to be praised. Classics like Renegade and Breakdown are some of the most well known tracks on Monstercat that are still my favorite after many years. Noisestorm deserves to be the best.

All songs I've heard by Noisestorm have Blown My Mind! Definitely some of the best songs I've ever heard. All Monstercat artists are amazing and deserve praise but Noisestorm will always be Number 1 for me..

He does every single genre besides trap, and makes good melodies and songs

Best most diverse artist

18 Tut Tut Child

Maelstrom is absolutely ear shattering, in the best way. Dragon Pirates bass boosted also does odd, happy things to the thought processes.

Many of their songs have been my favorite at one time or another, such as hot pursuit and dragon pirates. Catchy tunes and amazing drops and buildup in every song.

I love tut tut child, he started more on the techno side but when the track "Hummingbird" got released, it blew my mind.

He's definitely one of my all-time favorites, not only because he was one of the first I had heard of, he was simply one of the best. His music is so refreshingly original, yet at the same time it has that "good ol' dubstep" feel to it.

19 Droptek

Droptek definitely deserves more recognition than he has. We all have to admit, despite having basically no lyrics, his songs are awesome. Cosmic Ray, as well, is one kick-ass song you need to listen to if you haven't already.

Droptek is honestly very good. I think he's underrated. Songs like What's going on? Pretty dang chill.

Killing time is pretty good

Best Non Vocalized Artist On Monstercat, With ROGUE In Very Close Secound!

20 Bustre

Combine is such a good drum n' bass

21 Rezonate

Rebirth is a beast EP

22 Krewella

I like all of their songs!

Killin it is so good


23 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 has never been on Monstercat. - Elijah_Cook

Why on earth is he on this list?

OMMG I love his song flight feat. tristan and broken <3 my favorite monstrcat of all tim! 1!

24 Au5 Au5 Austin Collins, going by the stage name Au5, is an American electronic dance music producer from New Jersey, USA.

One of the very few monstercat artists that actually has zero bad songs. The way this guy manages to combine several genres into amazing tracks with insanely impressive sound design, is absolutely crazy. Au5 really deserves to be on one of the higher spots on this list.

No one artist from Monstercat puts as much detail, complexity, bass, and production into their music than Au5. He deserves to be in the top ten

LOVE Snowblind, one of my favorite songs! Not to mention all the other au5 songs I love...

Follow you, snow blind <3 really cool music n voice

25 Grant Bowtie

He needs to release a tad bit more but besides that his songs (so far) are very unique and all have their own sparkle and shine.

There's so much detail in every one of his tracks you see why it took over a year to make every one of them. - AnalogNinja

All of his songs are filled with detail and uniqueness, wish I could see him on tour.

He now just goes by Grant. - Elijah_Cook

30 DotEXE

They're actually more well known as "Summer was Fun" now, but their music is still as amazing as before.

The person that lead me to monstercat

He's one of my all time favorite monstercat artists, this guy should at least be in the top 10


Pixl is one of the best and should be around the top 5 this list is trash

This guy is top 10 to me. Buzz Kill and Sugar Rush are awesome songs!

Pixl is a pretty good artist, if I do say so myself.

32 Laszlo

Interstellar and Supernova are 2 of the best Monstercat tracks ever released in my opinion. Along with Nitro Fun, he deserves to be at the top of this chart. The closer EP was amazing! Perhaps the best of those five tracks would be Our Arrival.

Laszlo also does some amazing songs outside Monstercat but Supernova was good!

Laszlo is a very good artist.

Now Laszlo, he's not above 20 as of now. Yet he makes better music than most others. Airglow, Interstellar and his collab with WRLD, You & Me. Amazing songs.
Definitely deserves to be at the top.

33 Tokyo Machine

Deserves to be higher on the list, but I understand why he's down here. It's probably extremely hard to challenge the staple artists of Monstercat. Hopefully he will be able to climb higher and higher!

Probably one of the least well known artists, though the 8-bit feel and those amazing drops make him one of the best artists I've heard on Monstercat.

They make some of the most amazing songs like Okay and FIGHT

Tokyo Machine deserves way more respect in my opinion. I have loved every one of his songs so far, especially CRAZY. My only concern is if he is going to release anymore songs... I really hope he does! [^v^]

34 Rameses B

Makes such peaceful music, and very heartlifting, it's hard to resist the slow, yet amazing music from Rameses B. Songs like Timeless and Transformations, are incredible.

35 F.O.O.L

Come on guys! Keep on rocking is monstercat's best song!

36 Razihel

I don't get how Razihel is not in the top 10.

Okay, I have no idea what happened here. He should totally be number 1. My top four favorite songs are all by Razihel, Titans, Legends, Skybreaker, and Edge of the World. Come on, is this list even joking?

37 Haywyre

EXCUSE ME. #38? Absolutely unacceptable for who most agree is one of (if not, the) most talented and original artists on the label. So triggered right now...

Such a unique sound. He perfectly combines natural instruments with extremely catchy electronic themes. Every MC artist is great, but Haywyre 's songs blow me out of the water every time. My favourites (out of what I've heard so far) are Synergy, Back and Forth and The Schism.

Literally bea

38 Fractal

Among the most underrated artists on monstercat, he can do so many styles so well, and the complexity in some of his tracks is insane. My second favorite is Au5, and they're even better together. - datrandomguy

39 Rootkit

Absolutely unique and fully capable of making a good song in any genre. Not defined by style, he always makes great songs.

Concrete Jungle is amazing, and he has an assortment of other great songs as well

Rootkit is one of my favorite artists on monstercat. His old songs are amazing. But his new songs are even better he has definitely mastered house and tracks are getting better and better. SO UNDERATTED

40 Grabbitz

Grabbitz deserves to be at the top because he has such a unique style, can do the "impossible" with music, and always releases something different. His trapish-based style is something not seen everyday. His songs are always so well-received by the fans for a reason. I say he can do the impossible because he can somehow take orchestral instruments and combine it with hardcore trap in one song, which reasonably seems like a challenge to do. If you haven't check it out yet, his Friends EP is worth hearing because it is outstanding because every song in it flows nicely through and tells a story through lyrics and the music itself. Not to mention, he has such a great singing voice and can put any of his own vocals in his music. He deserves to be at the top.

The first monstercat album I listened to was 014, and then later 025, recommended to me by a friend. I haven't been in the fandom that long, but the first song that really stood out to me and that I listened to on repeat was "Way Too Deep," which you all probably already know is a grabbitz song. To this day, he's still my favorite artist.

Why isn't Grabbitz in the top ten? His music is amazing!

He has so much skill when creating complex patterns. Just take friends for example and imagine how he designed that.

41 Marshmello

Honestly, this guy was just a one-time artist to promote Monstercat and gain more popularity.

Alone has to be one of my most favorite songs on monstercat

This artist deserve better eh?

Marshmello has the highest amount of monthly plays on spotify, just that "alone" says that mello is one of the best artists of monstercat and definitely up there with tristam.

I think WRLD will get more popular. He is continuously making more songs.

Cover art always good and music is always awesome

"By Design" is a good progress for WRLD

I love everything he puts out! there'ssuch a fun atmosphere to his songs. Current favorites are Echo, Awake, Break the Silence and Little too Close

He is a great new Future Bass artist and I hope he shines later in his music career

New song and I love it

Easily the best Future Bass out there! 100% deserves a top 10 spot

I love all of Hyper Potion's songs <3
They need to be higher :3
