Top 10 Best 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 note that is produced) has its own thought and expression of a different emotion. His songs are filled with sadness, but unlike other artists who fake emotions and then make you feel like complete crap, Tristam expresses his emotions genuinely.

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 also 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 couldn't stop crying and we started hugging each other. It's completely off-topic, but that's what his songs remind me of now - a sad embrace of this cruel world. We were sad because we lost a friend, but happy we still had each other and promised that we would continue playing viola for her. Yes, we play viola. And no, we don't suck.

But yeah, Tristam has been a part of my life. I'm not obsessed. I'm simply thankful for what he has done. I'm expressing it right now and hoping he may read this and feel happy that he can help people in ways that almost no one else can. He didn't try to hide the darkness of this world or try to inflict it upon me and make me feel bad about it either. He simply told me to embrace it.

And I'm not some emo kid or anything. I'm a gigantic geek who gets half-decent grades and got 1st chair all-state viola 2 years in a row. I've just simply learned one thing in these past few years of my life: If you can't overcome the sadness or depression or whatever is dragging you... more

2 Pegboard Nerds

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 jaw-dropping as well. They're my favorite.

Pegboard Nerds. Kings of everything. They are the ones to almost complete all the genres. Everything they do is simply perfect. They also brought some artists to Monstercat like NGHTMRE, MIU, Snails, and Quier Disorder. They just have to finish the house, the dnb, and kick it off with some trance.

3 Stephan Walking

His songs are just great! With hilarious names like "One Man Moon Band," "The Difference Between Us and the Aliens," and "Porkchop Express," Stephen Walking is one of the most unique Monstercat artists.

He's been there since the start and is one of the most creative Monstercat artists in my opinion. One day he makes dubstep, then there's some house, and then space.

Stephen Walking is one of my favorites. I like his vocal-less, spacey type of music, although I love vocals in songs as well.

4 Muzzy

Definitely number 1. This guy brings a unique Pendulum-like vibe to the table. I can never listen to one of his songs without becoming ridiculously pumped and happy!

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

5 Ephixa

Ephixa can make any kind of music he wants, and it will sound top-notch.

Ephixa will punch your eardrums and then steal your bike. Don't mess with that kid, he's got an AR. Plus, epic music vibes!

Look: Awesome to the Max, Ideekay, Division, and much more. What else do you need?

6 Varien

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

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

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

Au5 is a true musical legend, lacking only the recognition he truly deserves for his phenomenal work. While I won't act like I love every song he releases, the effort put into each song makes up for that.

Tracks like "Blossom," "Snowblind," "Only in a Dream," "Sweet," "Blue," and "Halcyon" are releases on Monstercat proving he is beautifully talented and incredibly flexible. Other notable non-Monstercat releases are "Arise," "Celldweller - Eon (Au5 remix)," and "Any Longer." He is easily my favorite artist of all time, and for good reason.

If Skrillex still made dubstep and the like, a collaboration between him and Au5 would rip the fabric of space and time! How he isn't in the top five on this list is beyond me.

8 Televisior

How can you not love Televisor? They bring the best Nu Disco to the table when it comes to Monstercat and the genre. They are easily one of the most underrated artists/groups on Monstercat. (I guess you could also count Rundfunk because one of the guys from Televisor is Rundfunk.)

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

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

9 Feint

Amazing music such as We Won't Be Alone and Fury!

Feint makes incredibly unique and amazing music in the DnB and Electronic categories!

10 Noisestorm

Noisestorm is a talented artist who 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 one for me.

This was an extremely difficult choice to make. I nearly pushed my vote for Stephen Walking. But here we have a man who can pull off any genre, along with Stonebank. These two are the shapeshifters of the Monstercat world.

Personally, Barracuda and Breakdown VIP are his best songs out of all of them. Except 2011 Noisestorm. We don't talk about that.

The Contenders
11 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 every one of my games because it just gets me so pumped and into the zone.

Should be numero uno. Tristam and Pegboard Nerds are pretty sick, but Aero Chord has a lot more hits and more known music than the other ones. And I think he is the king of bass.

An artist with a wide variety of musical sounds, all encapsulated in that Aero Chord trap style. Each song grows on you with time. One of my favorite artists!

12 Project 46

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

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

13 Insan3lik3

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

One of the original artists of Monstercat!

I didn't even know Insan3lik3 was a part of Monstercat! Oh dear... I am obsessed with some of their songs!

14 Nitro Fun

One of the few EDM artists to successfully combine a fast, upbeat song with both chiptune and power. His style is one of the most unique out of all the Monstercat artists.

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

Every song he releases on Monstercat is always so catchy and unique to his awesome style!

15 Braken

All four of Braken's songs are awesome!

Flight, To the Stars, and Frame of Mind are all unique and awesome. Love all three.

16 Vicetone
17 Rogue

How do you describe Rogue? A trap artist. And nobody else on 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, 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 Rogue's 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 hear trap, I automatically know it's Rogue. And when I hear the podcast and Atlantic is thrown in there, I just want to break out dancing. Rogue will always be the underdog from Monstercat, with little recognition. He never forgets about his music and understands that the fans he does have love his music, and he sticks to his area of music.

A collaboration between him, Tut Tut Child, Droptek, The Nerds, and probably either Haywyre or Nitro Fun would be insane! It's every genre of Monstercat thrown together, and knowing these guys, they'll make it work.

18 Slushii

I wish artists like him were more popular. Real EDM lovers listen to stuff besides Skrillex and Deadmau5.

19 Slander
20 Koven

These guys need more appreciation. They have some of the best songs, in my opinion, that should've been on par with the best on this list. Worth the Lie, One's Own, and My Love are all my all-time favorite songs.

21 Dillon Francis
22 The Fat Rat
23 Krewella
24 Grant Bowtie

His songs are so immersive. The sounds that distort everything else in the song help me focus while studying. By far, my second favorite artist next to Stephen Walking.

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.

25 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 is over the top. I think all of his songs are very creative.

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

Out of all Monstercat artists, I think that Mr. Fijiwiji is the best, and his song Cynical from Monstercat 12 is fantastic.
