DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJ’s of 2012 – Poll Results


The team at BMD really came up clutch for this. Everyone will have their own opinions on the legitimacy of this very controversial list. Is it even relevant, asks Kaskasde? The way I see it, in 2012 there are a lot of people voting for who their favorite artist is ad for the sound rather than the most skillful, most entertaining DJ – many of them not realizing the difference between a DJ and a producer. Anyway, here are the top 100 DJ’s as voted by fans with 11-90 being after the jump. Daft Punk still in the top 50. David Guetta still David Guetta. Avicii‘s gotta be happy right now. Deadmau5 has gotta be angry, as always. But hey, Armin van Buuren regains the crown for his 5th #1 landing. Madeon is the youngest on the list, 18 at #54. Shouts to the first timers Nicky Romero for the #17 debut, Knife Party at #33, and Zedd at #51. I’ll be honest I have not heard of at least a couple of the DJ’s on this list. Regardless of what you think though, the list is definitely interesting, to say the least.
