From the warehouse techno of the 90s, to the up beat garage sound of the early 2000s, to the energetic sound engineering of modern EDM, the list has got you covered. An electronic music starter kit, if you will.
Tens of thousands of EDM fans voted for the list below, making it a true fans list.
What was number one? Well, I’ll meet you at the bottom when you guys find out!
4. Underworld – ‘Born Slippy’ [Junior Boys Own], 1995
3. The Prodigy – ‘Smack My Bitch Up’ [XL], 1997
2. Tiësto – ‘Adagio For Strings’ [Independance], 2004
1. Daft Punk – One More Time [2000 / Virgin]
That’s right folks. The French robots took it. And it’s difficult to argue against the people here.
Daft Punk’s hit was huge when it dropped at the start of the millenium. The slow house tune leads you along, slowly speeding up as it goes.
The auto-tuned lyrics intend to spark a smile whenever the song hits speakers, consoling the listeners that there’s always “One More Time” to “celebrate and dance so free”. Almost makes you feel like each amazing night will never end.
Listening to the song, even now, over a decade after its release, reminds true EDM fanatics why Daft Punk is and always will be a legend.
