1HardwellRobbert van de Corput, who performs under the stage name Hardwell, is a Dutch big room house and electro house DJ and music producer.

Gotta give credit to a fellow dutchman that plays great music with amazing beats... Always able to get the crowd jumping!

His Music inspired me from killing myself because I've been getting bullied in my school a lot lately and without his music I wouldn't be alive right now. Thank you Hardwell if your reading this. You are the best dj I know and I will be attending you gig at El Paso, TX on August 14th. Hopefully I will get a chance to talk to you.

Sincerely, Kevin Elgirus

2AviciiTim Bergling, better known by his stage name Avicii, is a Swedish electronic musician, DJ, remixer and record producer.

By far the most creative and talented EDM producer this world has ever seen. I can't mention any other Dj/producer that can compete with Aviciis genuine, unique tracks. He has really set some of the standards to house music, starting with levels and from there on continuing, most recently with fantastic "wake me up" and "hey brother, hey sister" where he combines country with house in a truly spectacular way! He's the man.

Seen him live and he amazing and I got all his remix on my phone

I find his songs different to most these days. They seem to have that extra touch to them. Plus they seem to have more meaning. I just love his songs.

Saw his video wake me up it was awesome

The Contenders

11Deadmau5Joel Thomas Zimmerman (a.k.a. deadmau5) is a Canadian DJ producer, formerly a web developer, who produces a wide variety of electronic musical genres, such as electro and dubstep, but is best known for pioneering work in the areas of progressive house and electrohouse. Notable songs include Ghosts n' more.

Awesome DJ way better than afrojack

DeadMau5 you are the best DJ I have ever listened too you inspired me when I was 5 years old I started drawing you on papers and now I made good hats that you have and I always wear the red one someday I want to try what you because if you keep making music my life keeps building up never quit carry on at what you do best buddy never let yourself down my favorite songs from you are hi friend all the ghosts and stuff or whatever and animal rights like I said never ever quit

Deadmau5 must be in the top 3. Have you heard his songs? He made 270 of them (and more to come) in 9 years! Skrillex shouldn't even be in the top 10. His songs are okay, but he only made 70 in 6 years. If you compare, Deadmau5 has made more and better songs than Skrillex in one year. Deadmau5 made an average of 30 songs a year, and Skrillex made an average of 11-12 songs per year.

He is not really a dj because he programs his music but he is the best producer and the true definition of playing live, he actually works live unlike most others which just come with a usb and play the track.

13Daft PunkDaft Punk is a French electronic music duo consisting of producers Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter.

It must be the top 9 djs, because Daft Punk always be in level god.

Maybe 13 now but after ram they will be in top 5

Daft punk deserve a best position because the duo has working much much time to make a good song now with the sucess of Get Lucky one more reason to be in a best position.

They won 5 grammy awards for their album...and now they're #13
