The Top Ten

1
DJ Tiesto
GREAT SONGS MIX, CREATIVE, GENIUS & 1 OF A KIND.
he is the best DJ in the world and his tracks are very powerful amazing, he also has the ability to improvise very well
He is the best dj of all time and the first Dj to accomplish major goals before any of these Djs showed up like skrillex all he plays is dubstep boring same ass beat for years. Tiesto is the highest paid Dj in the world he has won the most awards and nominations than other Djs and is the only Dj to ever play at the OLYMPIC games, P.S armin van buuren should be over David guetta because guetta produces boring ass songs he only has a handful of songs that people actually listen to.

2David Guetta
I think david guetta deserves to be in the top 5 because he s one of the best djs alive and made very very good songs... I
David guetta is my number 1 fan. I always listen to his music and blimey it was good. Crikey, why is he in number 3? He should be in number 1 because he deserves it. If you disagree, I'm sorry mate. He is number 1 no buts no nothing.
Is this a fake list!? Tiesto at ONE? That's so impossible with David out here! Listen to David Guetta songs! He is simply the best! Please vote David Guetta with 100% votes!

3Avicii
BEST DJ EVER! NO DOUBT! He should be higher than ranked fifth! MORE VOTES FOR AVICII! Plus Wake Me Up is an amazing song he did!
Dudes levels changed my life. Avicii should be at least on the top 5.
Why is avicii rank 11? He is the best dj I've ever seen! Listen to levels and you will know!

4Skrillex
What!
dude you kidding me? DJ Tiesto's such a bore
and Mad Mike Metrovich... Never heard of him
joe hahn... He's such a fat-ass
man, the best is skrillex
Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites...
Bangarang...
My Name Is Skrillex...
Benny Benassi feat. Gary Go - "Cinema (Skrillex Remix)"...
First of the Year (Equinox)...
SKRILLEX ROCKS...
How the hell is skrillex not number 1?! He is way better than Tiesto. He's a cool dude and he goes hard core with his music. I love the Cinema Remix, Reptile from Mortal Kombat, Bangarang, Kyoto and Ruffneck bass, First of the year! I love Sonny! He is way better than Daft Punk, that's for sure, Daft punk has totally gone downhill if you ask me. Skrillex makes the kind of music he wants to make without any crazy gimmick. And his bass drops? AMAZING

dragonfly99

Skrillex is amazing. He actually makes pretty much all of the music in his songs, maybe with a little bit of vocals from other artists. But my point is he doesn't just make up a boring drum beat and have repeat for 3 minutes and get someone to sing over it(usually autotuned) like other Djs do. No 2 should be Joe Hahn

5Armin Van Buuren
He's considered as the best dj of all time by the djmag, the reference about Dance and Electro!
GO ARMIN!
Armin Van Buuren can easily get into the top 10! He is SO awesome!

belfastboy15

How can Mad Mike Metrovich (never heard of him) be ahead of the best dj in the world Armin Van Buurenn

6Daft Punk
Because they are the best Djs in the world
how they are not #1 let alone not on the list is beyond my belief.

Best DJs ever! Because first they don't search recognition like other DJs and they hide their identity, secondly they brought French house music to the rest of the world!

7Deadmau5
I am simply astonished that he is not #1. It just amazes me. The mau5 took electronic music to a whole new level and inspired a whole new generation of DJs (myself included). Tiesto and Guetta don't even BEGIN to compare with the greatest DJ of all time!
This is number 9? The Mau5 is the KING of DJ's. David Guetta is way too mainstream, Skrillex is simply focused on loud noises... But Deadmau5 is perfect - blending slick beats, bouncy synths, prominent bass, and sick beats. If you don't know what I mean, listen to Strobe, The Veldt, Animal Rights, Faxing Berlin, and Fifths. DEADMAU5 FOR THE WIN!
How is Deadmau5 No.7. And how is Skrillex and Daft Punk not in the top 3. Avicii isn't even good. Tiesto is pretty good and David Guetta is alright. This astonishes me to see proper DJ's not in the top 3. If you like proper techno listen to Deadmau5, Daft Punk, Paul Van Dyk, Sasha, John Digweed or the bloody beetroots. Or if you like Dubstep then you listen to skrillex or if you wanna be chilled Kaskade and Moby will do it perfectly.

8Hardwell
People, Common Hardwell at 37? That is just not fair. How is this even possible when Tiesto is at the top. Almost all tracks bu hardwell are very comparable to those by tiesto and many are even better.
To this day I have not heard a single Hardwell track that I don't like! Listen to How We Do, Apollo, Where have you been (hardwell remix), Encoded or Cobra, all such high quality songs
HE is the best dj in world and he has the best iconic ringtone that world's best dj have to have, his music is too good that we always want to listen and last but not list he is great man too

9Calvin Harris
Why is he so low? Calvin is the best! Please listen to his music and vote him up! His really good songs- "you used to hold me, " "feel so close, " "I'm not alone" etc.
Calvin is the best dj. Considering his his latest album, almost every track is a hit... Its very unfair to him being rated so low while he can make high quality music... Something needs to be done about this!
CALVIN HARRIS IS A GREAT ELECTRONIC ARTIST. HIS SONGS AND MUSIC IS JUST AWESOME. JUST LISTEN TO DRINKING FROM THE BOTTLE.

10Mad Mike Metrovich
Mike is gone. but played the best music and had the best dances. MISS YOU MIKE!
You dj the best I like your songs and mixes
Mad Mike was the best, He should be back in number one, where he belongs...

The Contenders

11Swedish House Mafia
Common People, 3 amazing DJ's in one group
They deserve a top 10 spot
They will be missed
SHM
Come on... Really? Out of the top 3?
Don't You Worry Child makes them the best
More comments about Swedish House Mafia

12Joe Hahn
In fact! Joe Hahn is the best DJ ever, he can make something different with his skill in Linkin Park
The God of DJ! He is the best. Thank you Mike Shinoda for discovering him! He can close his eyes and still jam like hell!
I have never seen such an artist. Mr Hahn rocks and he is amazing in the turntables. In fact, Linkin Park is the best band in the world.
They can't be outrun and they can't be outmatched.

13Afrojack
THIS THE MOST AWESOME DJ HE SHOULD BE AT LEAST BE 2ND PLACE THIS doesn't MAKE ANY SENSE! HE ROCKS DJ TESTO IS COOL BUT I PREFER AFROJACK & DAVID GUETTA BETTER AFTER ALL DAVID GUETTA AND AFROJACK ARE DJS WHO INTRODUCED ELECTRO HERE! COME ON!
Afrojack is right up their wit tiesto and guetta.
I don't know but Afrojack REALLY should be in the top 10. Damn!
More comments about Afrojack

14Zedd
What...? Zedd is not at the top 10 list. What is going on here? You People's do not have any knowledge about music. ZEDD is one of the most talented dj beside David Guetta, Tiesto, Armin van Buuren, Deadmau5, Hardwell, Calvin Harris, Skrillex, Afrojack, Alesso, Swedish House Mafia, Nicky Romero etc. If You Don't Believe me Just listen to his tracks. Listen to Clarity (Featuring Foxes).
I Think Zedd should be up there in 10. He is so good he made Electro/Techno music to pop mainstream... and people who aren't in this genre can easily listen to this guys music.
What is this?! Zedd is such a talented dj. he deserves to be in the top 5. cmoon

15Paul Van Dyk
Paul Van Dyk has got to be in my top FIVE along with the DJs that have been leading the Dj mag Tiësto, Armin Van Buuren.
He is the number 1 no doubt about that, legendary and phenomenal! He has aquired a unique status of undisputed and ever prevailing admirable one!

16Benny Benassi

I agreed Benny Benassi is up there today as one of the most important dj's with the likes of david guetta, skrillex to be honest I never was much into techno but that all changed once I heard Cinema(skrillex remix) one of the best songs to grace this world

I like how he is always providing the base track for other DJs to remix. Without Benny Benassi, awesome remixes like Skrillex's Cinema would never have come to be. I do not think that he is The Best, but he should be given more recognition as an important DJ.

I Think Benny should be in the top 10 because he is a beast with his hits "Satisfaction" and "I Love My Sex" and he's especially a beast when he's featured in the song "Beautiful People" by Chris Brown and that's What I think! So let's bring Benassi To the Top!


17Steve Aoki
Steve Aoki at 70, really
He should at least be in the top 15
Have you ever heard his Pursuit of happiness remix, Classic
I was at his concert in México city. EPIC. Aoki should at last be in the top ten
The new song Boneless? Amazing and of course No Beef too!

18Peer Van Mladen

19DJ Fresh
Dj fresh is amazing and he was all over the radio so how is he not in the top 10

20Nero
Listen to the welcome reality album freon start to finish and you'll be blown away. Its epic

21Jam Master Jay
No one could mix and scratch like this guy. Hands down number 1.

22Ken Shelton
The greatest DJ to move a dance floor. He is in Michigan!

23Nicky Romero
His live performances are the best ones in all festivals!
He deserves to be in the top 10's... He is just perfect

24DJ Khaled
LEGEND OF THE GAME

25Kid Leo
Great voice and personality. He knows music. I listened to him in Cleveland on WMMS. He brought a lot of new artists out and into the national and international spotlight.
This guy is crazy and does the best original mixes. No matter what song its always a different nonstop danceparty. Best dj EVER.

26Above & Beyond
Above & Beyond is behind Nero, Ken Shelton, and Hahn, let alone 17 other DJ's not named Daft Punk (Who I put at #1... ) This is a joke. They do so much for the EDM community!
Exactly. Above and Beyond...at least 3rd or 4th.
On my way to heaven

36Alesso
Alesso's music is just perfect. His music is just so much pure. Don't believe me? Listen to years (vocal extended) feat. Mathew komma.
He's a new dj and he's awesome... Should listen to his songs

37Knife Party
Knife Party Deserves a spot in the top 10> fire Hive!
Producer of some of the best techno songs
Knife party should be aboe daft pink

38DJ Qbert

39Basshunter
Now Your Gone is the best house techno song on this website but the artist is 44th?
What!? - Basshunter is awesome. Dota, All I ever wanted and now your gone are all awesome songs PLease scroll down before you vote.
No one in the whole list is greater than the greatest of the greatest DJ
(Basshunter)... So please vote him.
He is the greatest of the greatest DJ. This list is definitely the bull. Basshunter should be right on top at 1st position. But in this stupid list, he is not even in 100... Such a ridiculous thing to see. I hate this list. Damn it!

40Sven Väth

41Darude
For me he is the best DJ I've ever seen!
He doesn't have many songs but they're very great!
You have to listen to these:

Sandstorm
Feel The Beat
My Game
I Ran (So Far Away)
Stars (Here With Me)
Rush
Etc...

mehas

Feel the beat and Sandstorm are great. I love them

42Kid Koala

43Richie Hawtin

44Ferry Corsten

45DJ Ko Kimura

46John Digweed
I read the chat and I laughed a lot... Buy a life kids.
No, I just cried

47ATB
Atb should be number 1. He's clowned Tiesto through out their whole careers! And Armins placement is correct.

David guetta should never even be discussed with the top 30 dj's.
Atb is the best what is he doing so low 45?! This guy is awesome he is not all hype like guetta or calvin Harris who sounds like pop. Atb is classic plus more he doesn't drastically change his songs to go along with the fads. This guy should be at least number ten on this list.
He is absolutely #1 DJ of all time! I think it's the list of present time.
