Dj Mag's Top 100 Dj list

The long-awaited results of the DJ Mag’s Top 100 Dj pool have finally arrived yesterday. This ranking is usually met with a good deal of anticipation and a heavy dose of criticism as you come across artists you haven’t’ heard about, and genres you didn’t know existed.

This year’s poll came with much more amount of WTFs than expected with Eric Prydz being at position no. 66, Carl Cox is believe it or not (highest ranked techno DJ) at position no. 77, and legends like Richie Hawtin, Nina Kraviz, Knife Party, Kaskade, Bassnectar and A-Trak are not even on this list.

If you need a reminder, these are the results of the DJ Mag Top 100 DJ poll for 2016:

The reactions about the list were varied, with a huge amount of supporters and detractors, but no matter the stance, it seemed like everyone across the scene felt compelled to voice their opinion.

This is how the dance music scene responded:

This is how serious everybody should take DJMAG.

It’s important to note that Twitter wasn’t filled only with negativity about this list, as some of the Martin Garrix’s colleagues congratulated him on winning the award.
