Ladyhawke won the award in 2009 with her self-titled album.

The New Zealand Music Award for Best Electronic Artist is a New Zealand Music Award that honours New Zealand artists for outstanding dance-pop and electronica recordings.

The inaugural award was presented as Best Electronica Album in 2002 to Sola Rosa for their album Solarized. The following year the award was renamed Best Dance Album, then in 2004 the award was again renamed, this time to Best Dance/Electronica Album. In 2010 the award reverted to Best Electronica Album, and from 2016 it became Best Electronic Album. In 2017 the award was changed to Best Electronic Artist with the entry criteria changed to require either an album or a minimum of five single releases in the eligibility period.[1]

Salmonella Dub and Concord Dawn have each won the award twice, while Shapeshifter has been nominated six times but won only once.
