If you’re looking for the best electronic dance music of the year, then this article is for you. I’ll discuss some of the artists that I feel are worthy of my vote for the best artist and song of the year. First up is Armani. Their new album, Dance, is worth buying, especially if you like the dark, mysterious and powerful deep techno sound that was recorded on the album.
The track “Relax” is another exemplary work from Armani. It has a slow, hypnotic pace, which is perfect for when you want to lose yourself in the clouds or just set the mood for a night out. The track is from their forthcoming album Dreaming, and it’s called Memories. Another track that deserves mention is their electro-pop hit from last year, We Like You.
Above all this, Disclosure is still proving themselves as the kings of electronic dance music. They’ve been touring since 2021 and haven’t let go yet. Their latest album, Burial, is worth purchasing for any fans of dark, atmospheric techno. Just don’t expect the same old thing on this album; it’s completely different.
There’s a track from this album called Banging, and it features British legends Justice and David Gable. This track was featured in the film Trainspotting and was one of the highlights for me in that film, so it makes it a favourite for me. Disclosure also have a track from their last album called Memories and it’s called Don’t Play.
Another favourite of mine is Swedish pop/rock bandaltitude. Their last album Earth, combined with their self-titled debut, was an incredible feat in electronica. altitude are led by vocalist/songwriter/performer Anna Ekstrum, with backing musicians including renowned musician/singer Julian Casablancas. It’s my pick as the best electronic album this year.
The Chainsmokers are leading the pack in my opinion. This collaboration with DJs Tykeimeter and WLS is a stellar collection of high tech, top 40 tunes. I’m not a huge fan of the Chainsmokers as a group, but this track has been standing out in my head the whole time.
What about Disclosure? I had a bit of a rough time finding their music, but they’re back with their third studio album, titled Memories. They’re one of the best at producing electronic music and you’ll definitely notice them on this track. It’s called opener for the album, but it doesn’t sound as amazing as it did on the band’s debut; Reclaim. However, the lead part, featuring Alessia Cara, is still some of the best.
One artist that has been making waves in the electronic scene lately is Kaskade. I’ve always liked him and his knack for blending different elements to create a unique sound. On his debut Man On The Moon: The End of the Day, he took electronic music and layered it with hip hop. No one else is doing what he is on this album.
What about Avicii? He’s become one of the biggest names in house music, thanks mostly to his massive hit, Wake Me Up. This track alone has achieved near instant popularity all over the world. That’s only a small sampling of his accomplishments, but to narrow down our list to just one track isn’t easy.
Out of all of the electronic dance music artists, what about Diplo and Kodee? These guys are definitely the cream of the crop. They have been doing what so many others have failed to do. They have created an empire and made a name for themselves. And that’s all they know.
Now, even though they are considered royalty among their peers, there are still people who doubt their skills. Don’t let that stop you. Even if you don’t think your styles are similar enough, chances are they share a similar passion for what they do. And once you hear how great they sound together, you’ll understand.
So now you can see that the fact that some of these tracks are considered as the best of the bunch doesn’t make them any less worthy of your attention. But the judging process might not be easy. So if you want to impress the other DJs out there, make sure you check out these tracks. That way, you can show them exactly what an impressive electronic dance music producer you are.
