DJ Mag Results 2016

DJ Mag hosted the opening party for Amsterdam Music Festival on October 19th 2016 and revealed this year’s Top 100 DJs results. Over 1 million votes were pledged this year but only one DJ can claim the top spot: Martin Garrix.

20-year old Garrix is the youngest DJ to ever win the poll. He first appeared in the poll in 2013 at 40, rising to number four in 2014, three last year and then top spot last night, knocking Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike off the position they held last year.

Top voting countries were US, India, Brazil, Mexico, Belgium, Netherlands, UK, Germany, Spain, Italy, France, Russia, China, Japan. And the main genres represented in the poll are EDM and trance with a reasonable presence of house and techno.

While bass-related music has enjoyed a really exciting year creatively, its underground nature hasn’t encouraged voters. Skrillex is still repping the low end in the top 10 (and can also be found at 40 as Jack U) but beyond him there are only a few interesting positions: Marshmello was the highest new entry at 28, Jauz and Flume both made Top 100 debuts at 83 and 94 respectively and Netsky is the only drum & bass artist on the list at 85.

Read on to find out who else is in the poll. As always, there’s a whole host of names you might not recognise. As always Angerfist is a brilliant name for a DJ. As always, keep your Twitter feed on red alert for moaning, whinging and various accusations.
