Top Ten DJs


The Top TenXW

1David 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!

He is the best

2DJ Tiesto


Initially I liked Tiesto because he was the one when I actually started listening EDM. But today I like him more for his talent rather than for memories I have when I actually started listening to him. And I hate people when they slam other artists because of their own particular favorites, Specially Skrillex & Guetta's fans when they scream HOW COULD TIESTO be number 1? Skrillex can also be slammed. Like, you can say he produces same ass beats always. However, Guetta & Skrillex are also my favorites including Tiesto.

One more thing I would like to tell, if you want to party & dance then you can listen Skrillex & Guetta But if you wanna experience Hallucinations that you have never experienced in your lifetime then take pot just close your eyes & listen to 'Adagio for Strings'. You may experience that his 'Adagio for strings' is actually one of the best songs of all time.

Meanwhile, the favorites ranking of anyone can't be criticized because it's a matter of personal choice. And you can't actually impose other people choice over your choice by remarking that this artist is & blah, blah.. Because this list is based on Voting. - hasandarvish

he is the best DJ in the world and his tracks are very powerful amazing, he also has the ability to improvise very well

Love Tiesto the energy and mixes. No dj better live. Adagio fit strings, traffic. Any better trance anthems then those...

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!

Waiting for love changed my life

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...
My Name Is Skrillex...
Benny Benassi feat. Gary Go - "Cinema (Skrillex Remix)"...
First of the Year (Equinox)...

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

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

He just sounds better than everyone in my opinion

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.

Just awesome... While listening Deadmau5 feels great to mind...

6Calvin 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!


Should be number two or three

7Daft 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!

The absolute best. David Guetta is great, but the rest above these guys range from mediocre (Avicii), to boring (Tiesto), to just plain irritating (Skrillex). My vote goes to Daft Punk.

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.

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

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

Awesome person awesome music

9Armin Van Buuren

He's considered as the best dj of all time by the djmag, the reference about Dance and Electro!

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

He is the only one who delivers REAL MUSIC... Others just do the beats and are all boring. Armin van buuren is the best!

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.

I really can't see why Zedd isn't bigger than he is, well, he's big but in my opinion he's in another dimension than the other DJ's in this world. He is so musical and talented and his songs contain so much feelings and dimensions, Well, he's like my god! Lol

Zedd is incredibly talented. How come he's not in the Top 5? One of the youngest among the DJs... And also, one of the best. Go Zedd!

The Contenders

11Swedish House Mafia

Common People, 3 amazing DJ's in one group
They deserve a top 10 spot
They will be missed

Come on peeps! A supergroup like swedish house mafia should not be at 11. They at least deserve to be in the top 5. Don't believe me? - listen to "Don't You Worry Child" & "Save The World".

Come on... Really? Out of the top 3?

As a trio they deserve to be in top ten

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.

Listen to Session, a masterpiece. Rock on Joe Hahn! Linkin Park rules.

13Mad Mike Metrovich

Mike is gone. but played the best music and had the best dances. MISS YOU MIKE!

Mad Mike was the best, He should be back in number one, where he belongs...

amzing, amazing and amazing i just love the man THE BEST DJ IN THE WORLD LISTEN TO HIM ALLL THE TIME - dazza

Afrojack is right up their wit tiesto and guetta.

I don't know but Afrojack REALLY should be in the top 10. Damn!

Its all fake afrojack should be in top 3 at least

Afrojack is the master mixer and producer,... All along with his talent, passion and personality he is number 1... Just view the documentary march of afrojack

Afrojack and his beat drops

15DJ Fresh

Just reward the guy for what he's worth. HE'S very innovative

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

Its gonna get louder...

16Benny Benassi

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 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 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!

17Paul Van Dyk

Paul Van Dyk has got to be in my top FIVE along with the DJs that have been leading the Dj mag Tiƫsto, 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!

18Martin Garrix

What is wrong with you all... Martin garrix should be at least in the top 10... And definitely in the top 3. Just listen to his songs and I'll be a fan... What didn't you guys ever listen to tremor, virus, helicopter, animals, etc. if you haven't then I bet your life is boring and lame. Vote him man come on.

Martin Garrix is so much more awesome than David Guetta! David Guetta sucks his own... Please vote for Martin Garrix! - Woozaa

Martin is a young kid who achieved his peak @ a small age lad's... He deserves to be in top 10...

Remember he brought you Animals and Wizard and many more

19Above & 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!

On my way to heaven

Exactly. Above and least 3rd or 4th.

20Nicky Romero

His live performances are the best ones in all festivals!

He deserves to be in the top 10's... He is just perfect
