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.

One Nation, Under Madeon: ‘Technicolor’ (Original Mix)

Rarely does an artist produce a single production a year and get away with it.

Too bad rarity is Madeon’s middle name.

(Actually, it’s Pierre.)

The word prodigy just doesn’t suffice; the voice of his generation, Hugo Pierre Leclercq has done more in nineteen years than most musicians achieve in a lifetime. First came the internet sensation ‘Pop Culture’. Twenty million views later, the 39-song Launchpad sampling took the French sensation on an uncharted journey up the EDM ladder. Singles like “Icarus“, “Finale“, and “The City” placed him atop the list of Top DJ’s under the age of 20. A master of musical theory and notation, Madeon’s intricate compositions go unparalleled in the industry. His sound consummates the French-infused, nu disco style that we’ve all grown to know and love. 

His first release of 2013 is titled ‘Technicolor’, and it could go down as his most impressive piece yet. With a production style more intricate than A-Rod’s relationship with the Yankees, Madeon had this to say on his website: “My goal was to tell a story through dance music using a longer structure than what I’ve done before“.

Well, my good sir, you achieved your goal with flying techni-colors.

See what I did there. I added ‘techni’ to the popular phrase ‘with flying colors’ to give you ‘with flying techni-colors’. That’s the title of the song. ‘Technicolors’.

Have a listen below, and if you like it, purchase it here. And if you steal it, I swear to Madeon, I will end you.
