UPDATE 2/6 | This article was formulated using a leaked preliminary draft of the results. The official results have been posted and can be seen here.
Reddit has two general electronic dance music subreddits that don’t cater to specific genres, labels, or artists: /r/EDM and /r/electronicmusic. The former released its Best Of 2017 at the end of December, but it’s taken until the first of February for the latter to compile everything (and create this nifty graphic below).
If there’s one takeaway from the results, it’s that Odesza had a phenomenal 2017. The duo won for Best Artist, Album Of The Year, Song of the Year, Best DJ Mix or Live Set, and best AMA. Wow.
Other winners were:
- EP of the year: Feed Me – Existential Crisis
- Remix of the year: The xx – On Hold (Jamie xx Remix)
- Breakout artist of the year: Droeloe
- Best album artwork: Jlin – Black Origami
- Best Label: OWSLA
- Biggest letdown: Kendrick Lamar – Humble (Skrillex Remix)
The full results are below, with the runners up in parentheses next to the winners. Check it out!
