Here’s a List of Generational EDM Anthems That Turned 10 In 2022

It's 2012. "Levels" is blasting through every house party. Big room house music is dominating the club circuit. Avicii, Skrillex and Pretty Lights are headlining Ultra Music Festival. Life is good.

That year, the EDM bubble looked more like a 5 Gum commercial, a mind-bending maelstrom of fantastical electronic music festivals and totemic tracks. Rave culture bubbled up from the underground and exploded through the mainstream, leading to a collective serotonin rush that still remains.

And while the EDM ecosystem is still thriving, it's markedly different from those days, when DJs and producers pumped out hits like a broken printer. 2012 gave rise to a slew of generational dance anthems, which are now relics of a bygone era.

Read on to turn back the clock a decade and spin some timeless electronic tracks from 2012.
