Reddit awards the best of EDM through fan poll

The internet is a place full of social networks, discussion forums, obscure corners, for all types and tastes, and there is a place that is one of the best places to talk about absolutely everything, Reddit. The place where you find the best of the internet, as the site itself says, brings together tribes from various subjects and places of the world and of course, has many users talking about electronic music.

Many people use Reddit to look for new music, criticize DJs, create conspiracy theories, reveal the most anticipated albums of the year 2019, and create their own TOP 100 DJs, among other things and now, a user on r/EDM has created a poll to choose the best of the electronic scene for 2018 in the ‘Best of EDM Awards’.

In the traditional voting models we already know, the best of EDM was chosen through 19 categories/genres, which reward Best Artist, Best Original Track solo and collab, Best Remix, Best Album, Best Set Mix for each. There’s also an extra category, Miscellaneous, which awards best Live Peformance, Festival, and Radio Show, among others. In categories, we have bass house, big room, drum & bass, future bass, trance, techno, trap and a few others. See below the list of the Best Artists in each of the 20 categories and here is the complete list of the winners of the ‘Best of EDM Awards’.
