See r/EDM’s highest voted electronic songs and albums of 2017 [full list]

This post was originally published on this site

The people of r/EDM have spoken.

As streaming platforms like Spotify compile end of year playlists comprised of the year’s most popular dance tunes, so too does Reddit‘s electronically focused r/EDM subreddit. The subreddit has produced a list of 2017’s “Highest Rated” songs, albums and EPs, and throwback posts, using user submitted Reddit ‘up-votes’ to calculate the year’s crowd favorites.

The democratic approach sees Reddit visitors elect The Chainsmokers & Coldplay‘s “Something Just Like This” as the highest rated song of the year with 497 votes. The full list features a total of 30 tracks, with Skrillex‘s remix of “Humble” registering in second place with 443 votes, and Illenium‘s “The Sound of Walking Away” weighing in at third with 373 points. Kygo, Martin Garrix, Marshmello, and ODESZA likewise rank, speaking to a resurgence of preference for mainstream releases among voting Reddit users. Porter Robinson‘s opaque Virtual Self alias charts twice on the highest rated list for “Eon Break” [303 points] and “Ghost Voices” [245 points], reflecting a general fondness of the DJ’s new pet project. Virtual Self’s eponymous EP is duly noteworthy for its placement as fourth on the subreddit’s grouping of the highest rated albums and EPs.

Reddit voters exhibit a collective inclination towards ODESZA‘s A Moment Apart, the platform’s top voted album of a total of ten albums/EPs with 561 points. Avicii’s Avīci EP receives the second most votes at 528, while Illenium’s sophomore album attracts the third most, earning 441 for Awake. Kaskade‘s debut seasonal album, Kaskade Christmas also emerged as a highly celebrated release, securing the eighth spot on the list.

r/EDM’s Highest Rated Throwback Posts category is as selective, as the subreddit’s Highest Rated Albums/EPs section, made up of only ten tracks. A testament to the memorable quality of Porter Robinson’s original productions, “Language” sits at the top of the list, likely gaining newfound popularity in the wake of Robinson’s foundation of Virtual Self. Skrillex’s Scary Monsters & Nice Sprites EP claims the succeeding position, while Justice‘s “Cross” follows.

The publication of the subreddit’s statistics has elicited a variety of responses from r/EDM users, with some finding the results to be an “expected” but paltry reflection of the year’s most widely acclaimed electronic releases, whereas others alternatively identify the lists as those that are accurate in their identification of listeners’ dance preferences this year. While the findings are indicative only of the listening trends of those that voted, the charts denote just where voters’ fan favorites were concentrated, with the utmost transparency nonetheless.

Here’s Coldplay’s Chris Martin On Modern Family

Yesterday evening, Coldplay’s Chris Martin was the toast of the scripted-half-hour-comedy world for a night, appearing as himself on what one might fairly characterize as one of the more Chris Martin-y shows currently (still) on television, ABC’s Modern Family. I don’t mean to thoughtlessly equate “Chris Martin” and “basic” or anything—that’s a little reductive—but suffice … More »
