The Top 100 EDM Producers of 2013


Music: deliberation in its most creative form. 

A medium inhabited by a unique balance between melody and rhythm, an aid in our ever existing pursuit to find meaning in this thing called life. Since the beginning of man, universal disparity has created a tear in our ability to keep the peace. Time passes, but our inability to find resolve continues to devastate our existence. Wars are fought over every facet of our functional lives. Religion, race, political factions, nationalities, ethnicities, you name it. It seems that our greatest challenge in life is to simply coexist.

And that’s where we come in.

It’s simple: No human cultural distinction can change the fact that music in it’s purest form sets us free. The world around us is changing, and with change comes an ethical responsibility to do right by your objective reality.

This is our time, it’s the age that we live in. 

Embrace the times. Embrace the music. We are Rager Onions.

*This ranking system was created with bias. These are (in our opinion), the most impressive producers (not DJ’s) in electronic music over the past year. Hate on, haters.

    deadmau5 as #25? Come on mang.

  2. John Dunn says:

    Above & Beyond is without a doubt the greatest trance group of all time. Hell, Tri-State was the album that plunged me into EDM.

    That being said, they’ve had ONE release this year outside of their acoustic show. One. I just can’t wrap my head around them at #1 for 2013.

  3. Eno Laget says:

    Greetings from Dominica Source a Social media network created to promote talents from the island of Dominica (not the Dominican Republic) in the Caribbean. Everyday, we come across people of great talents who we seek to promote however, there’s none like this young 20 years old Kieron Mc Kean Williams. Kieron is an aspiring EDM producer. There’s a lot more I can say about this young man however, as we are focusing on his musical talent, I will let his beats and remixes do the talking. Kindly take a listen to his original beats and remixes below. Great talent can be found in the most strangest areas and occasions. Dominica is literally unknown globally yet he is making wonders there. Kieron is quite respected among his peers and artists on the island. This is his handle on Soundcloud:

    You can find out more about Dominica here

    With Sincere Thanks
    Kenny M W for Dominica Source
