Known to many as one of the most popular genres of dance music, house music is known as one of the precursors to the electronic dance music movement. House music's origins are in Chicago in the mid-1980s and its sound is distinctive for its use of repetitive beats, synthesized bass lines and use of a drum machine. Among all the dance music artists, house music artists are some of the most popular DJs in the world. House DJs are known for dynamic live shows and strong regional fanbases who hung on what the best house DJs record and ultimately spin.

So, what are the best house music DJs? When you think of house music, it's likely that DJs like Daft Punk, Axwell, Armin Van Buuren, Fatboy Slim, Zedd, Tiesto and Calvin Harris. These house music artists span all waves of house music and are widely considered to be the best by not only house music fans, but critics as well. Their songs have been heard not only in the dance music scene, but also on mainstream radio as well. 

That said, it's up to you to determine what are the best house music artists. If you notice that a DJ isn't on this list and should be, feel free to add them. This list answers the questions "who are the best house music bands of all time?" and "who is the greatest house music 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 house music bands that you might've heard of. (279 items)
