DJ Mag Top 100 DJ Results 2010

The results are out! Well, not officially. But here are the leaked results for this year’s DJ Mag top 100 DJs.

Without sounding like a total cynic, I think these polls are more an exercise in marketing than anything else – those paying publicists large sums, releasing tunes at the right time, and appealling to the more commercial market will always be favoured in polls over the more underground artists producing phenomenal music.

The rise of Guetta (2nd) and the swedish house mafia (10th ,14th ,16th, and 23rd) is no surprise, as is the fact Prydz is lower than would be expected (30th) seen as he rarely plays outside of Europe. I’m surprised Max Vangeli hasnt made an appearance after a full force online marketing campaign (I seem to see his banner on every site I visit) and Andy Moor has dropped 17 places – maybe this is related to the voting scam centred around him and Above & Beyond that may or may not have been a smear campaign.

It would be interesting to see the results by Geographical region – I suspect that the Deadmau5, Guetta, and SHM love is much stronger in the US than in Europe and trance DJs feature heavily in South American and Asian charts. And where the hell is one of the best producer/DJs on the planet: Martin Buttrich? Hmm?
