Posted by ARNOLD YU on November 09, 2009.

DJ Mag’s 2009 Top 100 DJ List is Revealed!

Each year we look forward to seeing who will claim the title for the “World’s #1 DJ” in DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJ List. This annual list, first opened to the public vote in 1997, names the hottest DJ’s of the electronic dance world. Here’s a recap of who’s hot and who’s not in the dance world this year.

The Worlds #1 DJ award goes again to Armin van Buuren, the third time reigning champion. He beat out two time winner Paul Van Dyk in 2006, and has held the #1 DJ title since. Tiesto came in at # 2 again, and Above & Beyond stayed at #4.

David Guetta was among the top movers this year, as he moved from #5 to the #3 spot- replacing Paul Van Dyk (Crowned World’s #1 DJ in both 2005 and 2006) , who moved down to #5!


The public also showed a surge of support for Deadmau5, creator of this year’s Halloween favorite “Ghosts N Stuff”, as he moved from #11 to #6 on the list.

    Is this still open?? Okay! Best rave DJ ever? Dj P.S.I, absolutely no question!!! The cleanest, maddest,intense, most empathetic storytelling DJ I ever had the pleasure to hear. Circa 1990-1994 incidentally.
