Bomba Estéreo has dominated the Hispanic EDM scene for the past few years, but took their production to a whole new level this year with the release of Amanecer. Their 2015 release took a departure from the introspective, laid back feel of their 2013 album, Elegancia Tropical, by featuring tropical bass hits. Their song “Soy Yo” was also chosen for FIFA 2016’s soundtrack.

16. Jack Ü, ‘Skrillex and Diplo Present Jack Ü’
