DJ Mag‘s annual Top 100 DJs list always seems to create a lot of controversy, usually featuring unlikely DJs at the top of the list. This year, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike curiously took the No. 1 spot, leaving fans confused. The duo had an aggressive 2015 marketing campaign, consequentially leading to their win.
As questioning of DJ Mag’s credibility has been an issue in recent years, a new top DJ list has been created by Reddit. The website polled fans on EDM, trap, and hardstyle. Reddit’s list debuted Eric Prydz as its No. 1 DJ of the year, with Porter Robinson coming in at No. 2. The difference in style between the top two DJs is refreshing and unlike DJ Mag’s Top 100.
Martin Garrix, Madeon, Flume, and Galantis, all made the top 25, after having astronomical success in 2015.
