Most Underrated Electronic Music Artists

2 years an electronica fan, and I have seen the unexplored side of it.

The Top Ten

1 Moby Moby Moby is an American musician, who has produced inventive new styles to various subgenres of electronic music, inspired by 1950's gospel as much as by modern rock, and musicians from New Order to David Bowie. more.

I love Moby. He's the sort of chap you just want to go out for tea and cake with and talk about the state of the environment without you feeling like you're being belittled. I've always liked his music, and his work with the Void Pacific Choir was really interesting. I love his new album though. - callumchilled

How is Moby a one hit wonder with songs such as: Mistake, Flower, We Are All Made of Stars, Extreme Ways, Porcelain, Why Does My Heart Feel So Bad, Everloving and In This World? Seen the views even on those? Also! Another underrated, in my opinion, art of electronic music is Infected Mushroom. I recommend their song Special Place.

Moby is literally behind daft punk the biggest selling electronic act of all time. He has sold over 20,000,000 albums world wide.

What? Everybody knows Moby and everyone has at least heard one song from Play.

2 San Holo

The only good artist making trap music I know so far. His chill trap is best! - MChkflaguard_Yt

San Holo is my vote for the most underrated electronic music artist!

San Holo=Epic...He's really good and deserves this spot...Moby's good too...But I like this guy more...One of the best in Trap Music after Wide Awake, Illenium and T-Mass!

3 Odesza
4 Medasin
5 Tunedef
6 Skream

Most underrated producer, fact.

Skream is classic dubstep and I love that. - syntaxEDM

7 Filo & Peri

Moby is my number one choice on this list, but I have to say here that Filo & Peri are left out when it comes to trance and house. They deserve lots more attention. "This Night", for instance, is one of the best songs of all time. - PositronWildhawk

8 Electus

His entire subgenre, chillstep, is massively underrated, and he is the best in it. His best song, "Fallen" is haunting for life. - PositronWildhawk

Agree he's very underrated...but speaking of chillstep, where is BLACKMILL?

Am huge fan of him its sad the he had his last chart it in 2014 he allso brought something new to the dance sence is mixing rap into dance. I remember the days jamping to example as a teen changed the way you kiss me was my jam when I was 14 I remember wont go quitley came out when I was like 13 and before the example wasnt dance in the early 00s he was more hip-hop and grime back. Am glad he turned into a dance artists. Am hopeing the he will make a great big come back soon because his newer stuff keep flopping because the charts want gay Bieber and gomez in the top and other fake stars. Example is a real artists and he is true to himself and so down to earth. Example reminds me of the days from early 2010s like in 2012 as a 15 year old comeing back home from well everyones at work I order a pizza and put on clubland T.V. and dance nation and you see lot of Example on them channals with Swedish House Mafia Calvin Harris Nero Inna Alexandra Stan Nadia Ali Nnife Party Tiesto Armin Van ...more

Am a huge fan of example and have been for a very long time I grow up listening to him as a child and teen changed the way you kiss me and stay awake where my jams when I was 14 back in 2011. I started listening to example back in 2008. And he has brought something new to the dance music sence by mixing dance with rap and grime which is his own style. Example so reminds me of the early 10s in clubland. I remember back in 2012 I was 15 years. After school I used go allways go straight come and allso had a free house due to fam been out wha I did right is order a pizza turn and clubland T.V. and dance nation example was more shown on them channels. There was Example,Calvin Harris,Swedish House Mafia,Cascada,Inna,Alexandra Stan,DJ Fresh,Armin Van Buuren,Tiesto,Basshunter,Ultrabeat,Flip&Fill,Kelly Lloreana and more those where the artists back then. It's a shame Example has not had a hit in 4 years he needs a great chart come back. - Subs1997

16 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.

He's not underrated. If anything he's overrated

The terms "Overrated" and "well known" are two different things. The mau5 is now pretty much well known rather than overrated considering how his style of music differs from generic "EDM". An example of overrated artists are Skrillex, Chainsmokers and Calvin Harris.

Deadmau5 has been underrated. Despite his simple melodies, he puts a lot of effort into synths and the rhythm. Others like Martin Garrix usually have a simple rhythm of quarter notes. Deadmau5 on DJ Mags is dropping. Producers who buy bots to vote like Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike are not even that good. It is just that people are slowly transferring from pop to EDM so people still like energetic music. One main reason Deadmau5 is underrated.

Overrated but good.-DarkBoi-X

Him and calvin harris are the only good dance artist left. Like if Allan Walker was in the charts in the early 10s then he would have more hits in the chart. - Subs1997

I still cannot understand s guy is not making millions of dollars at the box office. Sure his music is very weird, but that doesn't mean he is a bad artist. He is slowly getting more attention, since his most popular song Supernova recently hit 1M views on YouTube, but i
this guy deserves at least 10.000.000 views, because songs like Supernova, Ego Death, Corrosive (my personal favorite), Hate Everything, I Like Your Face, Paracosm, Hidden Daggers Remix, Ichor, Soulstorm, Terran Era, Event Horizon, Zelda 2 Castle Theme Remix, Birth of the Sun, Chemical Rage, Jnana, The Armor Of God, and the recently released Nirmitti are very high quality songs that clearly have a lot of effort put into it, yet they don't get the recognition that they deserve. Please go check out this amazing artist on Newgrounds, it will be worth giving them a look.

42 Marshmello

Considering how much songs by him has made it onto the music promotion channels, he do. - MChkflaguard_Yt

Are you kidding, he's not even in the list of underrated?! - LegendaryProdigy

46 Christian Büttner / The Fat Rat

Wow! I can't believe he is not included in this list... an overly underrated glitch-hopper that had made good EDM. Listen to his "Unity" and "Monody", I'm sure you will find these and more of his songs good... Windfall, Never Be Alone, Time Lapse. And most of his better music can relate to its title, like Fly Away, which makes you feel like you just flew up into the sky and you saw everything below you. - meitokenchop

47 Kings of Tomorrow

Listening right now to "Fall For You". Very good house track. - PositronWildhawk

48 The Loops of Fury
49 Serge Devant

Absolutely fantastic old-school style house music, as well as 80's-style classic electro, which I feel like a fool for not having included in the remix. Listen to Take Me With You, Addicted, and Something Special, then come back. - PositronWildhawk
