Reddit’s EDM community /r/EDM is the latest to reveal their “Best Of 2017,” and it ambitiously covers nearly every genre thinkable in dance music. From bass/G house to trance to hardcore to dubstep, community members had the opportunity to vote on five categories: best artist, best original track, best remix, best album/EP, and best mix/set. For the most part, winners within genres presented a good amount of variety. However, within some genres, certain artists definitely came out on top.


In the bigroom genre, Hardwell and KSHMR dominated every category; Muzzy showed up strong in the drum & bass genre, clinching three categories to himself; Illenium grabbed four out of five categories in the future bass genre; but Don Diablo showed his true colors, utterly sweeping the future bass genre all to himself.

And for best label? None other than indie darling Monstercat.
