The mystery surrounding the prolific EDM vocalist Nevve has reached critical mass. Fans everywhere have noticed her distinct vocals and appearance on some of the most popular EDM songs of the last few years. When seeking Nevve out over social media, however, they are frequently met with profiles empty of content and vague theories on forums. So, who is Nevve?
During the dawn of rave music, it was common for producers to sample vocalists from popular songs and integrate them into their own beat in creative ways. The rave scene of the late ’80s to the early ’90s put more focus on the beat, and any vocals were intentionally blended into the background so as not to stand out as much. But the rave scene has since matured and Electronic Dance Music has reached levels of popularity and production unheard of in the earlier days. While glitchy vocal samples and fully instrumental tracks are still common, these days have seen the rise of talented vocalists who specialize in offering their voices over EDM tracks. Some vocalists are extremely prolific and feature on some of the biggest EDM anthems of the decade. Unfortunately, it often seems that these prominent voices don’t always receive the spotlight they deserve. More importantly, since EDM is a male-dominated scene (which is definitely changing) it seems as though females, in particular, have had a harder time receiving recognition for their work. Below is a list of some of the most prevalent female vocalists who have most likely featured on a song you love.
