So the top 100 DJs in the world according to DJ Magazine’s annual poll are in. Top 10 are as follows:
2: Armin Van Buuren
5: David Guetta
6: Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike
7: Nicky Romero
8: Steve Aoki
10: Dash Berlin
Nothing to complain about here really.
Here are some other highlights:
40: Martin Garrix – only 1 note worthy (ghost produced???) track under his belt and he’s into the top 50.
87: Tenashar – WTF!!?!? Usually we aren’t into DJ Bashing… we love all DJs/Producers and if your track is good enough we will play it. (As some may know our Resident DJ here at The Overload recently had a nasty run in with Chad of Tritonal on FB and we still play their records). BUT… This chick? Take a listen to her mashups on Soundcloud. Adagio For Animals – Adagio For Strings (Tiesto) vs Animals (Martin Garrix) Tenashar Mashup. Proof that money/advertising/and a nice rack get you whatever you want in life.
TyDi who did NOT make the top 100 this year had one of the most humbling comments on the whole ordeal.
Dear fans,I want to be honest with you about something. For the last four years I was ranked in DJ Mag’s top 100 DJ Poll. Apparently this meant I was one of the top 100 most popular DJ’s in the world?… well, I don’t believe I deserved any of it. How was it that artists as famous as Daft Punk were listed below me?? Or huge idols of mine with obviously way more fans? – Not just thousands more fans than me, but hundreds of thousands. How could the numbers in this list make a single ounce of sense? I’ll tell you how – because I literally had to beg you guys to vote for me and even pay for advertising. I was never worthy of those rankings and I shouldn’t be proud of them either. How was I able to call myself the #48 DJ of the world one year when true superstars who scored lower results sat there in such beautifully humble silence?… Admittedly it fed my ego and gave everyone an inaccurate illusion of my position in the music industry. So I’ll wrap this up – I know who my fans are because you’re right here! You’re the ones who write to me on twitter, you’re the ones who buy my music and go absolutely crazy at my shows around the world. So, from the very bottom of my heart, thank you. Thank you for making my life as incredible as it is today. I truly appreciate you.Tyson
