It’s that time of the year again, same time every year, and no it’s not Christmas. At least not yet! But we know that with the poll, Christmas might just come early for some of your favourite DJs/producers.
Yes. It’s DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJs 2012!
Last year, the poll saw the ultimate win for David Guetta. He was, of course, no stranger to winning awards considering the fact that he has been bagging accolades since 2006.
The ways and means in which he seamlessly dominated the mainstream radios’ airwaves and the innumerable pop artistes he has collaborated with (such as Black Eyed Pea’s “I Got a Feeling”, Flo Rida’s “Club Can’t Handle Me”, Kelly Rowland’s “When Love Takes Over”, Rihanna’s “Who’s That Chick?”) earned him his spot as the world’s No.1 DJ last year.
The years before that, for four years in a row (2008 to 2011), Dutch trance DJ/producer extraordinaire and musical genius Armin van Buuren hogged the title – for good reasons. Said to be one of the longest-running world No.1 DJs in the history of the prestigious DJ Mag poll, he is most famous for his radio show, “A State of Trance” (ASOT) which has a horde of 15 million weekly listeners in 26 countries worldwide.
In the recent years, ASOT went from radio to larger than life, spawning to include parties around the world. As a matter of fact, last year’s epic ASOT 550 was hosted several countries (United Kingdom, Russia, United States, and The Netherlands).
So, back to our point now – who do you think should win this year’s poll? Is trance strong enough once again to reclaim the title? Or should the No.1 spot remain in the hands of a commercial house and pseudo pop star DJ/producer?
Lovers and haters, you can decide. Click to vote your favourite DJs/producers for DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJs 2012.
