DJ Mag has announced the 2012 list of the worlds’ top 100 DJs and I am pleased to see Above and Beyond still in the top ten. Armin Van Buuren is at number one with Tiesto at number two. Their places, whilst much deserved are a given, this year, and it will take someone (and something!) really unique to knock them off the top spots.
Above and Beyond remain in the top ten, at number 8, and after more than ten years together the trio made up of Paavo Siljamaki, Jono Grant, Tony McGuinness continue to wow the crowds and listeners. Their tracks are regularly played by several top world DJs which include Armin Van Buuren and Ferry Corsten. They are the bosses of the label Anjunabeats and they also host their own weekly radio show Trance around the world.
If anything in the top one hundred dissappointed me it is that Fedde Le Grand and Nicky Romero did not make the first ten. Fedde comes in at 26 whilst Nicky makes it to 17. Let’s hope they do some climbing over the next year. As far as I am concerned they are already top tenners!
So here are the top ten, according to DJ Mag … Who are your favourite DJs?? Comment at the end of this blog!
