Who is the best EDM artist

TOP 10: The most famous EDM DJs in the world

EDM - electronic dance music. Everyone knows what that means, or at least thinks they know. But still no one can really agree on what that really means or whether it should mean anything at all.

Calling something electronic dance music shouldn't cause any problems, because every track that was created electronically is definitely electronic and is also dance music. Oh, if only life were so easy ...

Fans and the media seem to agree that EDM is a fiery mix of progressive house, big room, arena house, drum 'n' bass, future bass, trance, pop, hardstyle and even trap music. Plus, it includes more build-ups and drops than you can even imagine.

In addition, the genre is also the subject of many discussions. Perhaps that's why DJs themselves avoid the term almost entirely.


More on this:


That's why I just trust my instinct here. Just like a true EDM fan would do. I apologize to everyone who is convinced that Armin van Buuren and Oliver Heldens do EDM and Tiësto not. I would say the opposite, but who knows for sure.

And how to pick the "best" (another minefield you don't want to stumble into) ... I'll avoid any subjective responsibility for it by choosing the EDM DJs who are the most talked about right now . Namely through their result in the Google search as well as the number of followers and subscribers in the social media.
