Think of all that house music at the dance club you hear and wonder if you even know who sings them? Outside of electronica circles, the male and female vocalists singing for producers such as Basement Jaxx or Deadmau5 are mostly anonymous. Many people are probably surprised that DJ Sammy the dude that mixed ‘Boys of Summer’, not the singer.

So while looking forward to dubstep super group Magnetic Man latest hits, I discovered Katy B.

Electro-pop and dance-pop acts aren’t exactly uncommon, but it is rare for a vocalist to gain fame through dubstep, hardly a mainstream genre even in electronica.

It’s about time people start recognizing the electronic vocalists that help drive the beats in the dance club.
