Hardwell is number 1!

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

Hardewell is better than tiesto and david guetta

THIS GUY INSPIRED ME TO BECOME A DJ. "Follow me", "Young again", "Spaceman" and this which I can never forget, "Apollo"! This guy has changed the track of my life. He has totally changed my taste in music. So creative and unique and amazing songs which make you feel nostalgic! And as they say, I love HARDWELL!

2 Avicii Avicii Tim 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.

Avicci is awesome wake me up and addicted to you are cool but hey brother is awesome. Avicci's songs usually have a meaning.

The Contenders

11 Deadmau5 Deadmau5 Joel 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.

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

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

He is best known for his album True Colors, which has the highest debut on the Billboard 200 for an EDM album (tied with Skrillex's Recess). He is one the the richest EDM artists in the industry.
