Of all the music communities in 2023, it feels like rising EDM artists and dance music fans are the ones who have most joyfully embraced the reopening of venues post-pandemic and really enjoyed reuniting with their friends on the floor.
There’s a global passionate feeling of embracing shared experiences with renewed fervour, and new music coming out of the dance scene is full of confidence, across subgenres and different dance communities. Plus, EDM seems to be embracing the mainstream more and more.
Here are seven new electronic artists rising through the scene in 2023.
Upon its release, Waleed’s UK garage-influenced track “Se Rompen” was discovered by Floating Points and Four Tet. The elusive producer’s sound draws from his Iraqui-Puerto Rican heritage.
