DJ MAG TOP 100 - REPULSIVE!
In another absolute atrocity of a top 100, Armin Van Buuren once again takes home the crown. DJ Mag again over looks a plethora of talented, innovative, progressive, and genre evolving visionaries. They opt instead to continue a downward trend of glorifying music for the lowest common denominator and simply ignore actual performance skills. Not only that but the only two non house/trance DJ's are Andy C and John B. Ive seen both of those artist many times and while Andy C holds it down with the best in the world John B is much more skilled in the realms of production and not the most amazing selector out there. This list makes no sense to me and I feel as though this is a testament to the current pitifull state of a large part of electronic music. I honestly can not think of enough negative things to say or words that properly express what a loss this is for electronic music as a whole.
Heres the DJ mag top 5 and the rest of the results
#1 Armin Van Buuren
#2 David Guetta
#5 Above & Beyond
Heres easily a more suitable top 5 off the top of my head in no particular order...
GAS LAMP KILLER
Heres a video of Armin, sorry DJ Mag but you lose!
