Electronic dance music (EDM) is one of the most prominent genres in today's music. It reached its peak  in 2013 when Billboard had to create a separate chart for these bangers that pervade our clubs and airwaves. Despite not being as prevalent as it once was, a handful of names have been keeping the genre relevant by collaborating with big names such as Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez and Ellie Goulding.

 

In this rate, we have collected 70 tracks from 10 of today's hottest (both literally and figuratively) DJs. All songs have charted somewhere in the Billboard Hot 100. Features do not count.

 

We'll also be rating the paternal figures based on their looks, sex appeal and overall daddiness. Open the spoiler below for the complete list of entries.

The Rules

  • Listen to the songs once or twice more if you haven't already memorized them from weekend nights out.
  • Make sure to be objective and take all aspects of the song (production, lyrics, vocals) into consideration. 
  • Rate each song from 1-10. You can give a 0 the song you think is the worst and an 11 to the best.
  • Decimals are allowed as long as they're on tenths place (e.g. 0.5, 1.7)
  • You may send a commentary for your 11 and your 0.
  • Same rules apply to the daddies except you can't give a 0 or 11.
  • Absolutely NO TROLLING. That only works for popgirls.
  • You have three weeks to do the job. Send your ballot to me by August 13, 11:59 PM EST.

Duke Dumont should've been here. Ocean Drive itself would've been a worthy winner.

Love his work but he's not exactly a daddy (or charting in the US)

Would've loved to but it didn't chart in the Hot 100, unfortunately.

If Slide is anywhere near the top 10 with that tragic high pitched voice, the overrated + annoying Frank and the homophobic Migos I will riot! :flower:

I don't know if I want to submit myself to this, but "Feels So Close" and "Turn Down For What" for the win.
