The Nocturnal Times Top Electronic/Dance Songs of 2022



From dominating the electronic/dance charts, whether Spotify, Billboard, Apple Music, iTunes, Beatport, or 1001 Tracklists — just to name a few — selecting The Nocturnal Times Top Electronic/Dance Songs of 2022 was no easy feat. Each year, the process seems to become more difficult, especially with how much new music is being released each year, month, week, and even every day.

Including the most popular hits of the year, the founder’s favorites, our team’s picks, and some sleeper, unexpected features, narrowing down a list (and playlist) becomes increasingly tedious, yet extremely necessary. Having a year in review — a chance to look back on which songs had the biggest impact on the music community and circuit as a whole — is a chance for us to remember the imprint and moment in time.

Surely, a majority if EDM fanatics will recognize many of the artists or songs included on The Nocturnal Times Top Electronic/Dance Songs of 2022, however, there are plenty that you may just be hearing for the very first time. From mainstream EDM to underground, trance to techno, deep to drum n’ bass, disco to dubstep, tech to tribal, electro to progressive, and big room to trap — this year’s list is more diverse than ever before. Rising artists having explosive, breakout years, to electronic mainstays and dance music staples bringing some of their best works of their careers thus far; what a year it was for music.

For your listening (and convenience), we’ve added a full alphabetical list of The Nocturnal Times Top Electronic/Dance Songs of 2022, as well as a full playlist, below. Until next year… don’t stop dancing!
