Reddit is known for being one of the best spots on the internet, for literally, everything. It is a true melting pot, and a place where both die-hard, and casual fans can come together. When it comes to the world Dance Music this no different. It is a hotspot for AMA‘s from our favorite producers, as well as a haven for the freshest music, & big news. As of late, we’ve seen Reddit compose its own “Top 100 DJ’s List”, as well as a “Hype Thread“, which helped to shed light on our favorite artists’ upcoming albums.

More recently, the Subreddit r/EDM got together to vote for the 2018 edition of the “Best of EDM Awards!“, and a lot of the results are just as we expected. In the moderator’s own words:

“Over the past two weeks, the community [has] voted on what it thinks is the best music from 2018. We’ve tallied your votes, and are pleased to announce this years winners!”
