When it comes to glow-ups, many of us have the luxury of burying all evidence of our braces and bowl cuts deep in the depths of old family albums. But for the celebrities, it's inevitable for photos from the vault to pop up now and then.

So what did some of our favorite electronic artists look like before they were main stage headliners? 

From childhood portraits to pre-fame head-shots, we've gone digging for mementos from the pasts of Alison Wonderland, Flume, RL Grime, and other dance music superstars. Complete with swooping side bangs, toothy smiles and early 2010s rave attire, they remind us that not too long ago, these artists were just like us. Let's take a trip back in time.
