Two iconic acts in dance music are going head-to-head in one of our latest reader polls — Swedish House Mafia and Daft Punk!
Over 9.4k votes and counting, our readers are weighing in on whether they prefer the mainstream progressive house trio or French disco-dance robot duo. While both acts are widely cherished in EDM, both are quite elusive nowadays.
“Don’t get me wrong, SHM are amazing, but this is Daft Punk they’re up against! DP is practically God-tier in terms of dance music!” one reader exclaims in the comments.
Another agrees, “EDM shows wouldn’t be what they are today if it wasn’t for Daft Punk and their Alive 2007 tour, anyone who votes for SHM is just ignorant.”
“You’re comparing gods (robots) to mortals,” another says.
While the comments overwhelmingly reflect a deep love and loyalty for Daft Punk, the race is neck and neck. Currently 49.7% of the votes side with SHM while Daft Punk has the edge with 50.3%.
