The 10 Most Anticipated EDM Albums Right Now

vinyls The 10 Most Anticipated EDM Albums Right Now

While the music industry as a whole has been moving towards a more singles-based structure, you can't deny the impact of a quality album. The mark of any artist is how well they can put together an album, it seems. Sure, you need hits to survive, but a quality LP goes a long way in determining which artists matter, and which artists are just moving about, especially in EDM. And while production equipment and software is much easier to come by, EDM artists still get split by those who have the ability to craft a complete album and those who are just churning out tracks.

2013 is still pretty young, but we've already heard about some pretty exciting projects, from the obvious Daft Punk/Columbia signing injecting excitement into the scene, with artists like Afrojack, Tiesto, and Avicii all saying they have new projects on the horizon. We have more information on some projects than others, so instead of trying to piecemeal an idea of these together, here are the most anticipated album projects within EDM right now.

    Off the top of my head, Bondax + Araabmuzik are worth watching out for too

    • khal

      definitely remember word about araab possibly signing with Ultra for his next one?

      • Reflex Blog

    I’m so excited about the new Daft Punk album that I can’t even sleep

    First, a Daft Punk album dropping is MUCH more exciting than a Jay-Z album dropping, at least in this day and age. And I’m a big Jay-Z fan.
    Second, where’s Madeon??
    That is all

    • khal

      Madeon’s in France, with an album dropping in 2013.

      I’d say Daft Punk dropping an album and Jay-Z dropping an album are on par in terms of excitement.

    Everyone is sleeping on Henry Saiz’s “Reality is for those who are not strong enough to confront their dreams.”

    More good music for me ;)
