My Top 50 Artists of 2021

Updated: Dec 31, 2021

First and foremost, I want to say that this list is part of my personal collection that I have been listening to on Bandcamp and iTunes. I didn't have a chance to listen to everything that came out this year. This year I started listening to more genres of electronic music including synthwave, electro pop, cyberpunk, outun and many more.

The artists I have in my top 50 are ones that released music in 2021 and that I have listened to multiple times. I could have easily included every artist on this website and called it a day, but I wanted to make something fun because there was a lot of awesome music that came out this year.

This is not a competition and is only for fun. There is a lot of music I still want to listen to that I haven't yet. The list is in no particular order, and you can click on any of the pictures to see more information on the Bandcamp or iTunes page.

Ok. Enough chatter let's get it started.

1- PurZynth Rekords has many artists I can put on this list, but I wouldn't be able to keep it at 50. "Messages" started my year off right in music which was jammed with awesomeness starting with "Moving In The Shadows" by Elevate The Sky & Oceanside 85 on the first track. Check out Toxxic Project, Spaceman 1981, Sinuhe Navarrete, Red Industrie, Bling Cobra and more from this label.

2- Czarina has been releasing one hit after another in 2021 and also paired them with films. "Atomic: Ad Initivm" started it off in March followed by "Wonderland" and "Medusa." Her new album will be coming out in 2022.
