Top 10 Top 10 Dance Artists

By DJ Ron Slomowicz, About.com

Top 10 Dance Artists

1. Moby

DJ? Artist? Producer? Author? Restaurant Mogul? There isn't a single title that can be used to encompass the multitalented genius known as Moby. Taking a break between a promotional tour and a concert tour, Moby took a few minutes to talk to us about his new album "Hotel," the joys of Teany and political activism.

2. Underworld

Dance artists rarely make it past one album, much less to a greatest hits album. Underworld is not a typical dance artist and Anthology 1992-2002 is not a greatest hits album, but rather a collection of songs that document ten years of music from white labels to major soundtracks by one of the most important electronic music artists. Karl Hyde spoke to us about the progression of Underworld through their unique live shows and creative visions that keep us all jumping on the dancefloor.

3. Mylo

Mylo's debut CD "Destroy Rock and Roll" spawned the massive club anthems "Drop the Pressure" and "In My Arms." Critical praise and commercial success assured an eventual US release, led by the mashup "Doctor Pressure" which layered Miami Sound Machine's "Doctor Beat" over "Drop the Pressure." Taking a break between albums, Mylo (born Myles MacInnes) is touring the world as a DJ and recently made a stop in New York to play a party for internet record label Recall Records.

4. Scissor Sisters

Scissor Sisters are redefining pop music with a playful edge; fusing rock, dance, and just about everything else with incredibly well-written songs with hooks that force you to sing along. Baby Daddy teamed up with lead singer Jake Shears to form the nucleus which expanded to include self described "drag queen stuck in a woman's body" Ana Matronic, drummer Paddy Boom and guitarist Del Marquis.

5. Infusion

Springing from intense afterschool discussions about Depeche Mode and the fecund sounds emerging from the international rave scene, Infusion (Manuel Sharrad, Jamie Stevens, and Frank Xavier) have been delivering quality dance music since their first 12” “Smokescreen,” bringing creativity and fierce energy with their productions and remixes ever since then.

6. Prodigy

Is electro the new punk rock? On The Prodigy's new album, Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned, Liam Howlett goes back to his punk roots, exploring his influences and mashing them together in his laptop. Inviting people as varied as Kool Keith, Juliette Lewis, Princess Superstar and Twista along for the ride, the CD is like one we have never experienced before.

7. Junkie XL

Following up the gargantuan concept album Radio JXL with the more personal and instrospective Today, Junkie XL goes back to his musical roots, building the album around the guitar, the instrument he is most comfortable with. Not that he hasn't been busy lately, remixing everyone from Coldplay to Britney Spears and scoring film soundtracks and videogames, though he might be best known for his work with Elvis.

8. Conjure One (Rhys Fulber)

Few artists can honestly say that they witnessed and contributed to the birth of modern industrial music... Rhys Fulber can. Widely known for his work with Austrian musician Bill Leeb on a little project called Frontline Assembly, Fulber has cemented the use of synthesizers and electronic drums in industrial music. Since Frontline Assembly, Fulber has expanded his musical horizons by composing for numerous side projects such as Intermix, Delirium, Synaesthesia and now Conjure One.

9. Kraak and Smaak

And you thought Dutch dance music began and ended with only trance music? Kraak & Smaak, the team of Mark Kneppers, Oscar De Jong and Wim Plug, break the mold with funky house rhythms from a DIY perspective. Whether you experience their performances as a live band, their intense DJ sets, or their cutting-edge videos, you will definitely groove to the tracks from their impressive debut CD "Boogie Angst."

10. Second Sun

Voraciously energetic performers, the members of Second Sun are up-and-comers to watch. Not since The Prodigy have electronica artists been such engaging crowd pleasers. With their artist album in stores now, Antoine and Adam are touring North America this summer.
