20 Best EDM, Electronic and Dance Albums of 2014
20

In 2014, dance music continued its expansion, ignoring the boundaries that once divided regions, genres and fans. Duck Sauce added drops to doo-wop, Bunji Garlin used trance and trap to make his soca music hit even harder and Fatima Al Qadiri created an album of sonic dispatches from an imaginary China. EDM still ruled the fields, but even that opened up: Skrillex's Recess contained hip-hop and two-step and Bassnectar built pretty songs on bass blasts. From Big Freedia's New Orleans bounce to Basement Jaxx's warm house to Todd Terje's sonic pool parties: It's list time!
