The Best House Music of 2018
Top 5 House Artists Of 2018
Camelphat absolutely DOMINATED the House music scene in 2018, making them an easy choice as the top House artists of 2018. After dropping the tune of the year in 2017 with “Cola”, Camelphat came right back with some of the biggest tunes of 2018. “Panic Room” with Au/Ra has already crossed 30 million streams on Spotify, their remix of Fatboy Slim “Right Here, Right Now” is our remix of the year & “Breathe” with Christoph has blown passed 1.5 million streams in under a month. Camelphat is about as high as you can get right now, congrats.
2. Chris Lake
Chris Lake had an absolutely massive 2018. Lake had a busy year dropping “Deceiver” with Green Velvet, releasing our #2 House tune of 2018 “Turn off the Lights”, forming Anti-Up, a tech-house dream team with Chris Lorenzo, as well as releasing collabs with Destructo and Walker & Royce. Chris Lake comes in at #2 on our Top 5 House artists of 2018.
3. Green Velvet
One of the forefathers of modern day house, Green Velvet clocks in at #3 on our list of Top 5 House artists of 2018. Dominating the club and festival scene is typical for Green Velvet, but he also dropped over 15 singles in 2018 including “Deceiver” with Chris Lake, “Got This”, & “Sauce” some of the biggest house tunes of the year. Green Velvet is on fire and NOT slowing down any time soon.
Blowing up in the house music scene bigger and faster than anyone I can remember, FISHER comes in at #4 in our Top 5 House artists of 2018. Because he possibly dropped the biggest electronic song of 2018 with “Losing It” as well as taking over social media, with his infectious personality and humor, FISHER is well on his way to the top.

Rapidly establishing himself as one of the top dogs in the House music scene, Eli Brown is our #5 House artist of 2018. With some monster tunes this year including “In The Dance”, “Strung Out”, “Touch Me” and about a half dozen more, Brown is a name to keep on your radar.
