I may be marking myself out as a bit of a nerd here, but I have a guilty pleasure in listening to the poppiest of pop music from the Far East, particularly Japan and South Korea. Perfume, an all-girl trio are my favourite group and they make ridiculously super produced electro pop music.

Some of their music is very cutesy (see Chocolate Disco: first video below) but they’ve also made a fair whack of harder edged stuff that could easily be mistaken for Justice or Daft Punk with added nice Japanese lady vocals (see Fake It: second video below).
