Best Rave Music Artists

Rave music is exactly what you'd expect it to be: music played at raves. Beyond the obvious connotation, more specifically, rave music refers generally to the late 1980s/early 1990s implementation of house, techno and acid house played at clubs and dance parties. This is one of the first booms of electronic dance music and rave culture and thus, rave music, started in Europe and at these parties and expanded to North America shortly thereafter. Rave music is generally considered happy and and favored synthesizers in its sound and would later become drum and bass and jazzstep among other genres.

So, what is considered the best rave music? When you think of rave music, names like The Prodigy, Die Antwoord, Fatboy Slim, Liquid, Orbital and Portishead. These groups represent the best that rave music has to offer and with good reason. These dance music artists are closely associated with rave music and are thus considered pioneers in the expansion of electronic dance music.

That said, it's up to you consider who are the best rave music artists.
