The Best Electronica Artists

Though the genre has exploded since the end of the 1990s, the best electronica artists have had their roots planted in dance music for a long time. As you probably expect, electronica music features drum machines, synthesizers, and well, other electronic instruments. This list of electronic bands takes into account DJs and artists from across all subsection of dance music, including house, techno, drum & bass and trip hop. Today, many electronica artists are some of the popular musicians in the world. Between the big, thumping beats, laid back grooves and everything in between, electronica music dominates what many people listen to.

So, with all of these great DJs and electronica bands, which one can truly be called the best? For starters, the likes of Grammy Award winners Daft Punk, Moby, The Chemical Brothers, Giorgio Moroder, The Prodigy and New Order can be considered electronica music. These are some of the biggest names in electronic music and with good reason. Their track record and back catalogue demonstrates their importance to growth of electronica. While these bands are certainly some of the biggest names, there are other names that will off your tongue pretty quickly as well.

That said, it's up to you to determine what are the best electronica DJs. If you notice someone is missing from this list, feel free to add them. This list of electronic bands answers the questions "who are the best electronica bands of all time?" and "who is the greatest electronica musician ever?" If you know enough about the genre, please vote based on the quality of the band's music instead of just voting for the most popular electronica bands that you might've heard of.
