Resident Advisor Top 100

Awhile back when the DJ Mag Top 100 DJ issue came out there was more than a fair amount of outrage around the interwebz. In it’s own right, the DJ Mag poll does say a lot about the state of (mainstream) dance music. If you’re a festival producer and you’re wondering which acts will be your biggest draw, look to that. But if you’re a creature of the night, a lurker in the shadows with a head full of acid and bad intentions, someone who wouldn’t be caught dead with that hottie in the tutu and neon boots (not that we have anything wrong that) then look no further than the Resident Advisor Top 100 DJs.

This year crowns a new king, and it really couldn’t be more well deserved. A big congrats to everyone, especially GDD™ fav Maya Janes Coles (#9) and RA Top 100 debut Maceo Plex (#5, far and away the highest debut ever, and a higher debut than Skrillex’s #19 in the DJ Mag poll LOLZ) and finally to Hot Creations bossman Jamie Jones (#1), or as RA puts it, “the chillest bro in dance music.”

Here’s a quick list of the Top 10, for the full 100 head over to RA now.
