a Timeline of the EDM Decade
Electronic music, disc jockeying, and remix culture extend back generations, with the past ten years marking their biggest recent mainstream breakthrough. On the foundation laid by house and techno innovators like Frankie Knuckles and The Belleville Three - as well as superstars like Paul Oakenfoldand Armin van Buuren, who carried the torch at the turn of the millennium - EDM came to describe the most recent era in dance music history.
A convergence of trends was responsible for EDM's rise in the early s. Around the time music streaming services began to change the face of the recording industry, the North American festival boom increased the demand for globetrotting DJs. Combined with advances in music production software that shattered the barrier of entry for bedroom producers and yielded exciting, new sounds, these factors made for a perfect storm in which a vibrant chapter in the story of electronic music could unfold.
As approaches and the EDM decade draws to a close, the EDM.com staff have collaborated on a timeline of stories that illuminate a widely impactful pop culture phenomenon. Read on for our list of events that defined EDM over the past ten years.

David Guetta and Sia release "Titanium"

As was coming to a close, David Guetta and Sia accomplished as much with "Titanium."

Madonna makes "Molly" joke on Ultra Music Festival main stage

Molly is a slang term for MDMA, the active compound in ecstasy. The pop icon also took advantage of the stage time to perform a track off her latest album, aptly titled MDNA. The Molly reference took a life of its own after deadmau5 slammed Madonna on social media. The two eventually buried the hatchet days later.
Baauer releases "Harlem Shake"
Bauuer's "Harlem Shake" showed the potency of meme culture and influencers in the social media era. Whatever the formula was, "Harlem Shake" was wonky enough to draw fans in and engage participation from millions who felt compelled to make their own videos to the song. Matt & Kim, the Miami Heat, and the Norwegian Army were just a few of the song's long list of seemingly random supporters who got in on the act. Today, this particular intersection where music meets memes is alive and well on TikTok, but in many ways "Harlem Shake" was the case study that showed the pathway for artists to rise by becoming memes even existed.
Paris Hilton debuts as a DJ

Robert Sillerman's SFX Entertainment spurs "the EDM Arms Race"

In what Billboard dubbed "the EDM arms race" in a September, cover story, he pledged to invest $1 billion into the industry annually.

ODESZA reinvent the live experience of EDM
Top 20 Biggest EDM Hits of s
s is a blossoming decade of EDM genre, so-called Electronic Dance Music. It’s not like EDM has not ever existed until now; the evolution of the genre dated back 40 years ago, but not until this decade did it truly gain commercial momentum. Some could arguably call it the Golden Age of this treble-soaked, bass-shaking movement, for its massive success to the mainstream audiences. This ongoing and ever-growing musical trend is a decade-defining moment, a page-changer of music in s. It changed but at the same integrated with pop music very well: DJs have yearned their recognition as “pop artist” instead of being the behind-the-scene men, and pop artists such as Britney Spears, Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber, etc have taken a lot of EDM influences to their body of works, from Britney Spears’ dubstep-filled Hold It Against Me to the recent massive trap hit 7 Rings by Ariana Grande . Very few genres have been able to change and evolve so quickly like EDM; within 10 years, dozens of EDM subgenres have been brought to the mainstream, with each of it finding a short reign, with dubstep setting the tone for the decade, followed by progressive house, deep house, tropical house, trance, hardstyle, and most recently, trap. Inevitably, this is the fastest-growing music genre. It grew so fast that in Grammy has to change the eligibility for Best Dance Recording to include true DJ recordings and exclude pop singers
A new decade has come, and EDM still finds its glory on the charts and in the festivals, and hopefully will continue to evolve as we grow. To celebrate the prominence of the genre, we decided to compile the TOP 20 BIGGEST EDMS HITS OF s. We will be including club-bangers that keep us crawling on the dancefloor like maniacs from up to now. For the legitimacy of the ranking, we will include only songs that credited their producers as the main artists. So we won’t see Britney Spears, Madonna, Rihanna, Justin Bieber, etc here. We will also exclude remixes, so sorry I Took A Bill In Ibiza, you are a great EDM track though. Please take note, the ranking is not TOP 20 BEST EDMS HITS; tastes are subjective and we respect that. Our criteria will be based on commercial success combining with critical success and its impact in the mainstream music. This means songs like “Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites” or “Bangarang” by Skillrex won’t be joining the list, despite how influential it was, due to limited chart success and universality
Taki Taki – DJ Snake, Selena Gomez, Cardi B, Ozuna
This track proved that moombahton does have its charm for the mainstream audiences. It is a massively successful song worldwide with billion views on Youtube and nearly million streaming on Spotify. Ozuna and Cardi B have done the magnificent job for firing up the song with their rapping with Selena lightened it down a bit with her sensual vocal delivery
The Spectre – Alan Walker
This progressive house track is an explanation of why Alan Walker is so loved and known by international fans despite the lack of media exposure. Its larger-than-life production, dreamy verse, anthemic chorus, bedtime-story-like vocal delivery, etc are what you wanna hear in any festivals
In The Name of Love – Martin Garrix ft Bebe Rexha
This summer sensation of probably won’t get away from your workout playlist or any club’s setlist. There is something about Garrix’ production that felt so chaotic and yet so clean.
Something Just Like This – The Chainsmokers ft Coldplay
Who wouldn’t know the fusion between EDM and alternative rock could be this satisfying. This billion-viewed and billion-streamed track went on to became the 5th best-selling single in the USA of its released year.
More Than You Know – Axwell & Ingrosso
Two-thirds of Swedish House Mafia reunited and put out a single that sounded just like when there were three of them .This worldwide, anthemic banger is performed only once in Coachella , but we still hear it every time we hit the club. And no, we are not bored of it.
This Is What You Came For – Calvin Harris ft Rihanna
What happened when the back-then power couple Calvin Harris and Taylor Swift made a song together? Undoubtedly a mega hit that was played billion times on Youtube and million times on Spotify. Taylor Swift’s outstanding songwriting skills have once again been put into use for the first time in EDM, and Rihanna was absolutely the perfect vocalist for this track. But the highlight is still the ear-orgasmic production from Mr. Harris himself
Summer – Calvin Harris
Do we really need to explain why this is the summer anthem of ?
I’m An Albatraoz – AronChupa
This Swedish track hit it big in the Europe and lived long just like any of their IKEA items. Limited release in America doesn’t change the fact that this is one of the most well-known, overplayed and beloved EDM bangers of all time, with billion views on Youtube
Don’t Let Me Down – The Chainsmokers ft Daya
This Grammy-winning song from the duo earned them critical respect. It was their first top 5 hit in the US, scoring over billion streaming on Spotify and was viewed billion times on Youtube. It is is a smooth combination between the aggressive trappy big room beats and the sultry vocals of the year-old Daya. An EDM anthem that will never let you down as soon it drops
Faded – Alan Walker
No one can deny there was a time that Faded flooded the charts like a thunderstorm. It enjoyed massive global success, especially Europe where it topped most of the charts. Despite peaking at #80 in the US, the song has sold over 3 million copies and certified 3x Platinum there. Surprisingly, Faded turned out to be a way bigger sensation in Asia. It was literally everywhere! From the clubs, stores, shopping malls, café to your nearest neighborhoods. We heard so much that music in became “Faded and other songs”. Well that explains why the video garnered billion views and 18 million likes on Youtube
Feel So Close – Calvin Harris
After gaining momentum with We Found Love with Rihanna, Feel So Close further solidified Harris’ foothold as a top DJ in the scene. Harris’ vocals were minimal, but his electro-fingerprints were enough to make all of us all feel so close together. The result is a club banger that climbed to top 15 of Billboard Hot selling million copies in the US alone.
9. Martin Garrix – Animals
Would we ever get to hear In The Name of Love without Animals? Martin Garrix’s age is polar opposite to his versatility. Widely regarded as the most popular Big Room House song of all time, this floor-smashing classic made Garrix the youngest DJ to reach number one on the electronic music store Beatport, later attaining worldwide success and became an overplayed smash that makes you say “No not again” but still dancing to it. The song has achieved billion views on Youtube
8. Clarity – Zedd ft Foxes
Zedd is no stranger to the EDM mainstream scene and has spawned numerous hits under his belt, but none has surpassed the career-making hit Clarity that pierced his name on the chart like the cannonball. Clarity, at the time of its release, was a risky song that broke the tradition of ordinary progressive house by entailing tons of synth details that sound chaotic but put together a beautiful picture. Let’s also not forget the beautiful vocal performance of Foxes.
7. Titanium – David Guetta ft Sia
David Guetta is no stranger to featuring a lot of mega stars in his works, including Rihanna, Florida, Akon, Nicki Minaj, etc, but who knows his signature hit is the one that blended the vocals of back-then-underdog Sia. Originally a Katy Perry-reject, Titanium shot Sia to stardom and it is undeniable that she nailed what she wrote. The empowering lyrics of self-worth fusing with Sia’s sultry vocal delivery that signifies cries of sorrow, highlighted by Mr. Guetta’s fast-pacing, rushing drop haave created a multi-layered banger that sets itself apart from Guetta’s previous releases. The song turned out be a mega hit, especially in the UK where it is the 4th best-selling song, along with a 1-billion-viewed video
6. Closer – The Chainsmokers ft Halsey
The Chainsmokers’ success has always been a controversial topic among fans and Closer is the best example that captures this love-hate relationship: some might love it to life, some might hate it do death. But it is foolish to undermine the significance of “Closer” in pop culture. This overplayed future bass hit has that catchy, campy chorus that while it doesn’t stay resonant in festivals, it stays in your head. This is undeniably the duo’s biggest hit, staying at #1 for 12 weeks and top 10 for 32 weeks in the US, earning billion streaming on Spotify and over 2 billion Youtube views. Whether you hate it or not, this will forever be a classic and a song that in 10 years, you will sing along with it anyway.
5. Wake Me Up – Avicii ft Aloe Blacc
Soul and EDM are like chalk and cheese in music, but with the magic hands of the late legend Avicii, everything turns gold. This resulted in a massive critically-acclaimed and commercially-successful EDM work that will continue to resonate in festivals and dancefloors even after his passing. This flawless combination still retains the raving nature of progressive house, but at the same time, the sultry vocal delivery of Aloe Blacc has created much more depth to the song, setting it apart from other regular club-bangers. Wake Me Up managed to topped almost all of the countries it charted, including #4 in the US, where it has sold 4 million copies. The song has also been streamed nearly million times on Sportify, viewed billion times on Youtube, making it one of the most-streamed and most-viewed songs, respectively. Do you feel a bit of fire in your heart now?
4. Lean On – Major Lazer & DJ Snake
What happens if two of the most powerful EDM forces join hands? The result is probably the biggest, most ambitious crossover in the electronic music industry. Its irresistibly half speed tempo lures the crowd to unconsciously shake their hips, then shoot it straight to the chart, to become once the most streamed hit on Spotify with nearly billion units currently, and one of very few music videos to achieve billion views. Lean On also stormed the global charts, including #4 in America, selling million downloads, thus becoming one of the best-selling singles of all time
3. Turn Down For What – DJ Snake , Lil Jon
Turn Down For What entered the mainstream music as a piece of blank page. It was something we did not usually listen on the radio, but it is oddly satisfying and catchy. That’s how this jam popularized trap music to the world of EDM, which cracks the charts like it cracks the dancefloor. Contrary to his chillaxing, hips-moving, Macarena-esque smash hit “Lean On”, DJ Snake made his career-making hit a megaphone to the chest, a spring to your feet that just makes you want to jump with your heads blown and just before the drop happens, you can’t turn down “another round of shots”.
2. Don’t You Worry Child – Swedish House Mafia
While most artists reached the peak during their career, Swedish House Mafia made it after. The trio has put out Don’t You Worry Child, the last single of their career before their split, which did not only become their most successful hit and their only song to crack American chart Billboard (#1), selling copies worldwide, but it also became a Grammy-nominated masterpiece. By honoring the memories childhood and embracing the beauty of adolescence, Don’t You Worry Child quickly became an empowering festival anthem, while making EDM fans mourn for their departure. Lucky for you, each of the trio is enjoying their reputation as an individual DJ now.
1. Levels - Avicii
Wake Me Up might be Avicii’s most commercially successfully hit, but it was Levels that was his career-breakthrough that even the position #60 in Billboard Hot won’t alter its game-changing impact on radio and EDM world. This EDM anthem not only opened the door for progressive house to mainstream audience, but it also set the standard for the entire generation of club bangers. Its simplistic structure, catchy hooks along with the sultry vocal sample from Etta James from “Something’s Got A Hold On Me” made Levels sound larger-than-life, thus becoming an overplayed sensation in electronic music festivals and parties. The song attained tremendous global success around the world, peaking at top 10 in the majority of countries it was release and still continued to chart even up until now and spawned countless samples and remixes. Avicii may have passed away, but he left for us the Smell-Like-Teen-Spirits legacy that will forever resonate as the decade-defining most influential sonic masterpiece in the music world.

Billboard's 10 Best Dance/Electronic Songs of Critics' Picks
Unders - "Syria"
Coming courtesy of Dutch DJ Unders (real name: Duncan Meulema), this Eastern-influenced deep house gem commences with a lurking guitar line and woodwind drones before sidewinding into an infectious melodic groove midway through. With Unders emerging as a staple of freeform festivals like Burning Man (where he made a rite of passage debut aboard the Robot Heart bus last year) and Afrika Burn, it’s little wonder the eight-minute odyssey arrives playa-ready. - Matt Medved
9. The Black Madonna - "He is the Voice I Hear"
You'll have to purchase a vinyl record to hear The Black Madonna's first original release in two years, but it's well worth the investment. The Chicago DJ/producer (real name: Marea Stamper) launched her new We Still Believe imprint with a moving ten-minute tribute to dance music pioneers who came before her -- specifically Frankie Knuckles, Larry Levan, Arthur Russell, Walter Gibbons and Loleatta Holloway. Stamper succeeds in her stated aim to "make a record that returned to the core values of dance music," tapping Grammy Award winning violinist Davide Rossi and pianist Christoforo LaBarbera for this memorable disco homage - Matt Medved
8. Mr. Fingers - "Qwazars"
When Larry Heard released the Outer Acid EP this year, it marked a welcome return for his Mr. Fingers persona — the same moniker that birthed undeniable classics like "Mystery of Love" and "Closer" more than two decades ago. "Qwazars," which builds around a comforting, gradually evolving synth loop and light percussion, is the EP's serene highlight. "What's going on?" a garbled voice asks mysteriously, but the answer isn't important — everything here is pleasantly inscrutable. - Elias Leight
7. Porter Robinson & Madeon - "Shelter"
Supergroups can create some of music's most exciting moments, and the Porter Robinson and Madeon collaboration was definitely one of 's brightest and most adorable musical creations. The two best friends have known each other way before the hype, and their sounds are all but meant to come together. They proved that fact when they hit the road on a double-headline collaborative live tour, mixing and mashing their original productions together in new breathtaking ways, but this one-time-only single is the highlight that will live on forever in our hearts – until maybe they give fans a live tour LP, which would be totally awesome and should totally happen. - Kat Bein
6. Calvin Harris ft. Rihanna - "This is What You Came For"
It might have been written by Taylor Swift, but it's Rihanna's unmistakable voice that helped push this single into smash territory. It's the singer's third major collaboration with the Scottish superstar, and “This Is What You Came For” holds strong against its massive predecessors. Harris' hasn't lost his touch for the perfect hook, and while it didn't land the duo a Grammy nomination, it has audiences ravenous for Harris' next album, whenever that's scheduled to come along. - Kat Bein
5. Major Lazer ft. Justin Bieber & MØ - "Cold Water"
As the first taste of what's to come on Major Lazer's upcoming fourth LP Music is the Weapon, “Cold Water” set the tone for big features and catchy, melodic hooks. The song features vocals from Jack U collaborator Justin Bieber and “Lean On” homegirl MØ, as well as writing credits from Ed Sheeran, Benny Blanco, and others. Its uplifting message and easy dancehall rhythm helped make the single a bonafide pop-radio smash. Three official music videos didn't hurt either. - Kat Bein
4. DJ Snake ft. Justin Bieber - "Let Me Love You"
DJ Snake did it again. The biggest hit from the French artist's strong debut album Encore shows off his sensitive side with a perfect vocal performance from dance music's favorite new collaborator Justin Bieber. The beat is more melodic than turn up anthem, which helped it match Snake's Hot high watermark (No. 4) and made it a deserving radio mainstay from the moment it was released. Plus this song would top the list if it were up to Billboard Dance's Facebook following. - Kat Bein
3. Cashmere Cat ft. The Weeknd, Francis and the Lights - "Wild Love"
Norway's Cashmere Cat went from future bass darling to heat-seeking pop missile in nearly no time. His cute, bass-laden style has been tapped by Kanye West, Selena Gomez, Miguel, and more. Fans wait with baited breath for his debut LP, and “Wild Love,” with its weird bouncy beat laid bare against The Weeknd's running vocal, set the tone for what's to come. Cashmere Cat will give people the pop they want, but never at the cost of the bold, unique style that got him here in the first place. It's a cool, wintery song that can't be confused for anyone else's. - Kat Bein
2. The XX - "On Hold"
Drake isn't the only king of loves turned ghost. The XX are one of the most darkly romantic groups on the scene, and this lead single from forthcoming third album I See You is the most danceable tune from the English trio to date. It's the kind of song you could put on repeat for half a day, and you still won't get tired of its droning bass and haunting guitar. All that lofty atmosphere pairs perfectly with Jamie XX's upbeat production. “On Hold” is an excellent omen for things to come in early - Kat Bein
1. The Chainsmokers ft. Halsey - "Closer"
When The Chainsmokers debuted an ID duet at Coachella this year, few realized it would become emblematic of dance music's mainstream arrival. By distilling the millennial zeitgeist into an infectious four-minute earworm, the New York duo became the first dance/electronic artists to score a Billboard No. 1 hit since Baauer's "Harlem Shake" in -- and they didn't even need a meme to achieve the feat. As the capstone to a campaign that included two top 10 hits in "Roses" and "Don't Let Me Down," "Closer" bested Drake and Justin Bieber for the longest Hot reign of the year with 12 weeks atop the chart. The hit's impact was far-reaching, bringing electronic musicians back to pop's highest summit (one that not even time-tested hit-makers like David Guetta and Calvin Harris have reached as solo artists) and the award show stages. "Closer" was quite simply this year's most significant dance/electronic song.
