1001Tracklists is back with their annual ‘A State of Dance Music’ report, which ranks the top elements in a multitude of electronic music categories for their performance last year – including top tracks, artists, and most-streamed sets.
Music is in everyone’s lives. Whether it’s going to and from work/school, having a night out, or simply accompanying one’s chores at home, there’s no doubt that music constantly has a presence in one way or another. Dance music is one of the genres with the largest audience these days, and this report is here to prove it. The platform, self-described as ‘the world’s leading DJ tracklist database’, works all year round to give its users the most extensive list of songs, sets, and playlists possible, covering festival sets faster than anyone out there. If you’ve been to a show and want to know the name of a song, it’s probably up in 1001Tracklists.
We’ve taken a look at the new report and condensed some of the most appealing data points worth sharing. Read on to learn more about some of the most significant dance music topics of last year.
