r/EDM Finally Reveals Best Of 2018 Music Results

It’s nearly February in 2019, but r/EDM on Reddit is just now revealing the results of their Best of 2018 voting. Right off the bat, we have to note that the subreddit boasts nearly 440,000 subscribers, and yet the most votes in any single category was 405 for future bass. That is 0.09% of the total subreddit population.

Now, let’s move on to the results. The top two comments on the thread right now are referencing the EDM circlejerk and unwanted results — well, of course! No one voted! The results of the survey skew heavily toward the main stream, not that that’s particularly unexpected, either.

Winner of best artist for big room house? Martin Garrix, no surprise there. Dance Pop? The Chainsmokers, check. Future bass? Illenium, of course. Future house? Don Diablo, who didn’t see that coming. Although, props are due to Nora En Pure for winning best artist for tropical house & commercial deep house.

It also seems that the results could have been skewed by a large influx of Monstercat fans — just look at the drum & bass and electro house categories.

All this being said, another huge congrats is due to 1788-L for nearly sweeping the midtempo bass category after only a year of being active. The only categories he missed out on went to Rezz, for best album/EP and best mix. 1788-L also won best breakout artist overall.
