2Avicii
Seen him live and he is amazing!
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.

11Deadmau5
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
The beat dj of the year
[Newest]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.

12Alesso
ALesoo is the best one love you good work Alessandro
Alessos music is the best one, he always creates something new! He deserves to be DJ Number 1
Just like when Alesso live perform, he always make good mix for everyone who listen him 'mixing' & for every second, he makes AMAZE everyone!

[Newest]He is the best

14Daft Punk
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.
[Newest]This was the year of Daft Punk's comeback! How can they not be at number 1?

I've seen nearly all so called "Top Dj's" and it's true that there are Dj's who make better music than him but the question was who is the best Dj not the best producer and he is definitely the best DJ!

Heady is the best
Founder of hardstyle music

22DJ Antoine

I don't really like dj antoine, he's not that good

23Martin Garrix
Really awesome! He is the first 17 year old to have a Vevo account! He made the popular 2013 song, Animals.
Only 17 and his song Animals has more than 300 million views and Wizard isn't as famous but I think its even better!

Splodge

Martin Garrix should be at least in the top ten list

24W&W
Everything the person has said below is 100% true about david guetta, but I would also like to add Hardwell to the people that are overrated. The main reason for that is because most of his success this year has literally come from W&W. Realistically Hardwell DRASTICALLY changed his style because of these guys. W&W may not make a ton of trance anymore, but as a massive trance fan (Andy Blueman for life) I do respect that these guys have bridged that gap and literally have DOMINATED the house/trance scene this year. Only people that are ahead of them is AvB for sure and MAYBE Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike on the house side of things. But I will safely say that W&W has revolutionized the house and trance scene in the past year ish.
W and W are the best David is terrible Armin van buuren is first
This list is a joke... Sorry but David guetta doesn't do anything that is worth it. He had a trash remix of this is what it feels like. W&W remixed it as well and got a beatport top 10 out of it. This also goes for the code as well considering that was a #1 beatport hit for 2 weeks. The only people above them that don't prerecord most of their sets are Oakenfold Armin van Tiesto. Aside from Armin's album as well ASOT 600 tour, W&W have reigned suprime.
[Newest]Everything said below is entirely true. Especially this year.
