100 Greatest Electronic/Dance
Recording Artists

see on mobile
Criteria: - • For the purposes of this list, "Electronic/Dance" is considered to be a genre of popular music, spanning an array of styles including but not limited to the following: Early Electronic, Ambient, Italo Disco, Hi-NRG, Synthpop, Industrial, Electro, House, Techno, Freestyle, Miami Bass, Trip-Hop, Trance, Hardcore, Jungle/Drum & Bass, Big Beat, UK Garage, Grime, and Dubstep. Some would refer to this genre as "Electronica," though others dismiss this term.

• Artist rankings are based on equal parts musical impact, acclaim, innovation, influence and popularity.

• Electronic composers of Post-Classical/Avant-Garde music are not eligible, unless they have contributed significantly to the popular electronic music genre (e.g. Wendy Carlos, Tomita).

• This list is reserved specifically for recording artists, therefore DJs, remixers, and producers who have little to no artistic output were not considered.
