AFROJACK

First appearing in this poll way, way back in 2010, within 12 months Nick Van de Wall — aka Afrojack — had catapulted into our top 10, dropping out just once in the years since (and even then it was only down to No.12). In 2016 his tones moved on from the pop sensibilities that

ALAN WALKER

If 2016 was the year 20-year-old Alan Walker truly exploded into the EDM premiere league, 2017 has been the year he’s truly settled into his role as a next-gen ambassador. After being plunged into the deep-end (he was playing Ultra and supporting Rihanna within months of making his live debut), the be-hooded/masked-face English-born Nord has

ALOK

It didn’t take long for Alok — son of the founders of Universo Paralello, a dance festival set in the Brazilian mountains 17 years ago — to make a super-sized splash in his home country back in 2014. Starting out as a DJ at the tender age of 17, an appearance as fresh as his

ARMIN VAN BUUREN

While Martin Garrix may have once again won the title this year, when it comes to long-term success in the Top 100 DJs, every other DJ in the poll could learn a thing or two from Armin van Buuren. Now 40 years old — but still looking and sounding as fresh as DJs half his

AVICII DJ

Nothing shocked the dance music world more this year than the tragic passing of Avicii. The Swedish DJ/producer (real name: Tim Bergling) died in April in Muscat, Oman, after a long and widely-publicised battle with addiction and mental health issues. Shortly after his death, his parents released a heartbreaking statement implying the DJ had taken

AXWELL – INGROSSO

An Axwell – Ingrosso show is a show to remember indeed, and because each one is a spectacular  they’re able to cherry-pick venues and dates, which means you’ll only be able to catch them once or twice a month this season. Naturally their summer was jam-packed, and interestingly they were able to chose to take

Boris Brejcha DJ

Born in 1981, Boris Brejcha started his musical education in his childhood. His first two releases in 2006, “Monster” and “Yellow Kitchen” had been released on the Berlin label Autist Records. After a couple releases, Boris changed from Autist Records to Harthouse. With tracks like “Die Maschinen Sind Gestrandet”, “My Love” and “Lost Memory”, he

CALVIN HARRIS

Quoted by Digital Spy as originally adopting the moniker Calvin Harris because it “sounded a bit more racially ambiguous”, the Scottish producer not better known as Adam Wiles actually began putting out soul-influenced tracks. So while a string of very North European-influenced EDM hits might have made him one of the richest men in dance

CARL COX

Unlike a fair few DJs in the 2017 Top 100 DJs list, Coxy isn’t ‘too busy’ to answer a few of our questions. He knows that thousands of his fans have taken the time to vote for him, and he isn’t unofficially known as the Nicest Man In Dance Music for nothing! Carl didn’t answer

Danny Tenaglia

Danny Teneglia was born in Brooklyn, New York, where he stayed until his move in 1985 to Miami Florida. Danny’s first gigs in New York include the Roller Palace, on of the first roller discos in Brooklyn, Stix and Crisco Disco. In Florida, Danny was a.. The tale of Danny Tenaglia’s love affair with music,

DASH BERLIN

This year for EDM kingpin Dash Berlin was all about ‘We Are Part 2’, his latest album which spawned hit tracks ‘With You’, ‘Coming Home’ and ‘Listen To Your Heart’. He also played a series of special intimate gigs “which brought me back to the early years of being really close to the people”, and

DAVID GUETTA

For the last two decades, DJ/producer and showman David Guetta has been one of the biggest names in dance music. Whether you’re an EDM devotee or an underground raver there’s little doubt you have heard of the ubiquitous Frenchman, who’s been holding his Ushuaia residency for the last few years in Ibiza, alongside regularly topping

DIMITRI VEGAS & LIKE MIKE

Another year, another madness: Belgian/Greek brothers Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike remain in the upper EDM echelons as two of the most personable, ambitious and hardest working men in the big room game. Having signed out 2016 with another sold-out run of arena shows in Belgium (performing to a staggering total of 84,000 fans), they

DJ SNAKE

After a huge 2016 that saw DJ Snake — real name William Sami Etienne Grigahcine — release his debut album, ‘Encore’, it looked difficult for the Parisian DJ/producer to maintain his trajectory into the stratosphere. But through his triumphant closing headline set at Ultra Music Festival Miami, alongside huge performances at Tomorrowland, Coachella, Lollapalooza and

DON DIABLO

HEXAGON boss Don Diablo has had another blistering year, and once again it’s been reflected by his rise in our poll and the nabbing of Oliver Helden’s ‘Highest Future House’ title in the process. As well as releasing another string of Beatport hits (‘Momentum’, ‘What We Started’, ‘Save A Little Love’) and remixes for Rihanna,
