I'm honestly just baffled at this point that 1) this poll still exists and 2) anyone takes the result at all seriously. It's not about DJ skill or production quality, it's just "who has a recognizable brand with a name i can dump in the form this year?"
If there was any way to make this poll better, it would be to have nominees for specific categories (production, mixing, etc) and then label the popularity contest as a "fan vote/most popular DJ award."
I love Martin Garrix, but Hardwell has had a legendary year. No way he should be lower than 2, but the iPads strike again.
Also, where's RL Grime?
At least my girl Alison made it at all.
Hardwell at 4? FUCK THAAAAAT
iPads man, Fuck Tomorrowland for allowing them to do that shit and banning Hardwell there
*：前年，Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike曾被多人爆料称他们雇人拉游客在街头通过iPad给他们投票
Have to say this, Martin Garrix has been using iPads as well. My girlfriend was approached to vote for him while waiting for a train at a central station. DJMag is just vote-based and people should start accepting that. It is not a list of the best DJ's, just the most popular.
RIP DJ Chetas
Steve Angello @ 82. Never did I think Dj Mag would get this bad.
Steve Angello排名82.从没想过DJ Mag会烂成这样。
honestly, the good producers just don't give a shit and they know how stupid this thing is and they know to stay true to their music because their fans will always be there regardless. Other notables that pissed me off was Rayel, Deadmau5, and Romero's positions
其实，好的制作人并不在乎这榜单，他们知道这东西有多傻。他们知道他们只要对音乐走心，他们的粉丝就会一直粉他们。还有让我火冒的是Andrew Rayel，Deadmau5，Nicky Romero的排名。
What about Kaskade not even being on it the last few years?
KAYZO, Arty, Audien, Kaskade didn’t make it ... lmao
Kaskade could literally headline any festival in the USA lol
Easily, even Coachella.
I’m just here to read all the butthurt comments
Biggest jokes on this list:
Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike
Wolfpack (wtf is this)
It's just funny how high they are lol
Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike
I'm pretty sure Wolfpack are good friends with DVLM, and at this point DVLM probably has some pull with the magazine.
（回复楼上）我很确定，Wolfpack他们俩是Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike的好朋友，可能他们俩赞助了DJMag杂志吧。
Who tf is DJ L at 98, I can't even find him on any social medias
And why is W&W or NWYR not getting into top 10?
They're not rich enough
Where the fuck is Vicetone
Where the fuck is Dyro
Porter at 96?
Hardwell at 4?
David fucking Guetta is still that high?
I know it’s a shitty list but this takes it to the next level
Vicetone在哪儿？Dyro在哪儿？Porter Robinson在96？Hardwell第四？David 他妈 Guetta还是那么高？我知道这榜单就是坨屎，但是显然现在更屎了。
DVLM and store-brand DVLM can fuck off tho
Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike跟他们的公司一起滚吧
I'm pumped about mike williams getting on for the first time at 60!! Can't wait to see what he does in the future.
I think in the future he will doing future house :)
Garrix played the exact same set all year
This is just absurd, Axwell /\ ingrosso at 21 ? What’s worse than that is hardwell at 4 ?! Come on he makes way better sets than Martin Garrix . Don’t get me wrong Martin Garrix is great and I listen to him, but he doesn’t have the exciting mashups like hardwell. And Steve angello is at 82?!?! This is just bull shit .
贼难受，Axwell /\ ingrosso 排第21？比那更糟的是，Hardwell第四？！大哥，他的set比Martin Garrix好太多了吧。不否认Martin也不错，我也听他歌。可是他并没有像Hardwell那样的Mashup。然后Steve Angello第82？扯淡呢？
Dubstep artists never do well in the DJ Mag. People from all over the world vote. Bassnectar is pretty much only popular in North America. Most people who like Bassnectar probably don't even vote. Same with probably Zeds Dead and RL Grime. I'm sure their fans probably couldn't care less to vote.
Dubstep艺人很少出现在榜单里。全世界的人都会投票。Bassnectar只在北美人气这么高。喜欢他的人很少投票。Zeds Dead。RL Grime这些人也是一个情况。我确定他们的粉丝完全不在乎投票。
All the people complaining about Hardwell DVLM etc. noone cares about Steve Aoki? Dudes shows are horrible.
also a big joke in the top 10
Different year, same bullshit. This list should be banned, it's a cancer to EDM.
Seriously, I could write a fucking essay on everything wrong with this list. How did Armin van Buuren not get #1 after the year he had? How are the chainsmokers 6th? How is Marshmello 10th? How are DV&LM 2nd? How is Nicky Romero 50th and Paul van Dyk 51st? How are Arty and Kaskade not even on the list, yet the likes of Carnage is? The entire concept of these lists is just toxic.
讲真，我可以写一篇文章来吐槽这榜单。Armin Van Buuren得了第一之后怎么掉下来的？烟卷为什么第六？Marshmello怎么到第十的？DVLM怎么到第二的？而Nicky Romero和Paul van Dyk是怎么掉到50和51名的？为毛Arty和Kaskade不在这个榜单上？Carnage呢？整个榜单都有毒
How did Lost Frequencies went to 26 immediately? I thought he was relevant years ago with Are You With Me? Did anything new?
失频是怎么突然排到26的？我只记得他几年前的Are You With Me，还有啥新歌吗？
He's managed by the same people as DVLM...
Skrillex is below Marshmello and Steve Aoki. Enough said.
This list is trash, always has been always will be. It's about the money
Avicii #28?! What did he do last year? And Chainsmokers in the top 10? Puh-lease.
