I have been using music scrobbling service Last.fm since 2006 to keep track of the music I listen too, and I always find it interesting to look back over what I listen to the most. The list below shows the top 20 artists that I listened to the most during 2011, along with a few comments on artists I have something to say about:

  • 01. Daft Punk (Plays: 544) – Daft Punk is at the top for 2011 due to the late December 2010 release of their TRON album, and the excellent remix album that soon followed.
  • 02. Digitalism (Plays: 384) – German duo Digitalism released their new album “I Love You, Dude” in 2011, hence the heavy play count. 
  • 03. deadmau5 (Plays: 240)
  • 04. Sébastien Tellier (Plays: 172)
  • 05. Justice (Plays: 148) – Justice released their new album titled “Audio, Video, Disco” in 2011, although not as memorable as Cross it had a few decent tracks. Overall though it disappointed me.
  • 06. Lady Gaga (Plays: 126)
  • 07. Cee Lo Green (Plays: 110) – Bright Lights Bigger City is fun.
  • 08. Air (Plays: 108)
  • 09. Jamiroquai (Plays: 95)
  • 10. Metric (Plays: 95)
  • 11. Gorillaz (Plays: 93)
  • 12. Röyksopp (Plays: 89)
  • 13. Calvin Harris (Plays: 86)
  • 14. Boys Noize (Plays: 81)
  • 15. Kanye West (Plays: 78)
  • 16. Electric Light Orchestra (Plays: 76)
  • 17. Fila Brazillia (Plays: 73) – My old University Audio Technology lecturer makes up one half of electronica outfit Fila Brazillia. I’ve listened to their music in the past, but this year I found them on Spotify which is why they charted in 2011.
  •  18. Tinie Tempah (Plays: 72)
  • 19. Phoenix (Plays: 64)
  • 20. N*E*R*D (Plays: 64)
