Rager Onions Presents: The Top 10 EDM Songs of 2013

After compiling over 100 of the best songs from 2013, the staff at Rager Onions put their super-powers (our brains) together and narrowed it down to ten. Ten s0ngs that not only caught our ears, but blew our minds.

Without further adieu, the Top 10 EDM Songs of 2013. 

10. Protohype chilled out a little with this track, and the result was a masterpiece. With one of the most motivational songs of 2013, “Fly” is a tasty dubstep anthem for any music palette. Seriously, even your grandma might like it.

9. The dark horse, Andy Duguid, takes trance to a whole new level with “7Even”. Like all great songs, this one gets better with every listen. One might even call it ‘orgasmic’.

8. The French sensation has done it again. Madeon may not be old enough to drink alcohol in the U.S. yet, but he did produce one of the top-10 EDM songs of 2013. Kids these days.

7. Disclosure and Flume in the same sentence? You know it’s going to be nothing but gold.

6. Coming from one of this years top LP’s, Sub Focus also found his way onto the top-10 with this up-beat, D&B melody. Whether you’re having problems at work, problems with a girl, or problems doing laundry on a consistent basis – this song will surely put you on the right path. 

5. Dillon Francis did a lot in 2013. But nothing was more impressive than his first love song, “Without You”. According to Dillon’s Soundcloud, “This song is very meaningful to me because as TEED and I were working on the song I was having relationship problems of my own. He ended up writing the song about the whole situation i was going through..”

4. Just nasty. Trap isn’t dead yet, you guys. You heard it hear first: What So Not is the future of trap.

3. Audien exploded in 2013, and we’ll expect nothing less in 2014.

2. Our #1 EP of 2013 belonged to KOAN Sound & Asa’s Sanctuary. “Starlite” took the EDM world by storm, and for good reason.

1. The song that was at the top halfway through the year, stays at the top. Funky, passionate, and perfect for love making – this collaboration from two of EDM’s brightest minds will go down in the record books. Because “Easy” was the best EDM song of 2013.

Honorable Mentions:

The best remix of 2013 belongs to Kat Krazy.

We just can’t say enough about Sound Remedy. So we won’t.

This song got bumped from the top-10, but The M Machine deserves a lot of love for this “Tiny Anthem”.

You’re going to hear this song on the radio a lot over the next few months, but make no mistake about it – it was one of the best EDM songs produced this past year.

We’re all hippies at heart.

Rager Onions Presents: The Top 5 EP’s of 2013

The Top 5 EP’s of 2013:

5. Calling all music lovers (and heroes): Adventure Club has no entry fee, and the perks are endless. Amazing music and free cookies. What more could you ask for!

4. One year ago, Skrillex quietly released an EP that just could not be ignored even 12 months later. Leaving isn’t going anywhere anytime soon, so get use to OWSLA’s finest to continue paving the path to stardom.

3. A collaborative EP for the ages, Blow The Roof stands as one of Flux Pavilion’s finest ensembles yet.

2. Who would have thought Metropolis Pt. I could be topped? The M Machine did. That’s who.

1. KOAN Sound & Asa crossed a new frontier in electronic music with their eclectic masterpiece, Sanctuary.

Honorable Mentions:

Beware of the Teddy Killerz.

You’ve never heard of Spektrem? Blasphemy! Enter The Spektrem and have a look and listen.

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.
