EDM.com has revealed its official Class of 2021 list.

This isn't an index of hot SoundCloud beatmakers or a vanilla "artists to watch" list to keep an eye on for some nebulous amount of time. It's a list of ten musicians with game-changing skill sets who are on the precipice of becoming headlining superstars in the electronic music landscape.

Through their defiant approaches to industry standards and their workhorse-like mentalities, they have already proven their volcanic potential in the dance music scene and are now ready to erupt.

Over the next month, we'll be publishing a wide range of special content from these artists. This includes guest mixes, interviews, and Instagram takeovers with live, behind-the-scenes footage and sneak peeks at new music, among other exclusives.

Congratulations to the EDM.com Class of 2021 comprised of AWAY, Blanke, BLVK JVCK, Eliminate, Giolì & Assia, Lastlings, Lucii, Moore Kismet, Papa Khan, and William Black! You can get familiar with their music below ahead of a month's worth of stories offering a unique glimpse into the future of dance music.
