Top Ten DJs

The Top Ten

1 David Guetta Pierre David Guetta is a French DJ, songwriter, record producer and remixer who has sold over nine million albums and thirty million singles worldwide. In 2011, Guetta was voted as the number one DJ in the DJ Mag Top 100 DJs poll.

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.

I love David guetta, but I don't really like his new songs that much... exept bad, that's the best song ever made by David guetta! :D I'm talking about shoot me down or blast off n stuff... I liked titanium, she wolf, when love takes over, turn me on... but still, I think he deserves to be on 2

What are you thinking? David Guetta í not that much of a DJ. If you like his songs then he's a good producer and I can agree with that but he's no more of a DJ then Paris Hilton, this is the top 10 djs list ffs not top 10 producers. If you can't tell those 2 ocupations apart then you have gone to the wrong list

A personality is one who is able to carry his success on his shoulders. David guetta doesn't only do that decently but his songs have the quality of of refreshing you any time you want... All we gotta do is listen..

2 Avicii Tim Bergling (September 8, 1989 - April 20, 2018), better known by his stage name Avicii, was a Swedish electronic musician, DJ, remixer and record producer. He is best regarded for his work in Electronic Music during the 2010s in which his works have charted among the Top 40 Radio and for his influence ...read more.

Oh My God I love Avicii to DEATH! I would literally die for him. NO JOKE! Seriously! Oh my God I hated modern pop crap until I heard Wake Me Up on the radio I went on my laptop and I listened to the song TWELVE TIMES! I counted!
Then I heard Hey Brother and I had no clue it was by the same person I looked it up and then I listened to more Avicii songs and I bought concert tickets. Then when I heard Addicted To You... (And saw the gross video) I was in love! Not with the video... the song laugh out loud. It is my favorite song in the world and Avicii is my favorite person ALIVE!

Avicii is overhyped. In my country(Germany) his songs are played all the year( only the SAME SONG)and it sucks. I cannot hear him anymore, because all his songs are similar to each other and everybody knows him and behave like edm fans as he is the best dj in the world and and and -.- Sorry, but other djs like hardwell should be better than him. Hardwell makes really qualitive songs and always sound different. HE took me to edm with "call me a spaceman" not "Levels" what I really liked at that time, but it failed. So please, the people who only listen to avicii, rate fairly and compare with other djs. And don't feel like you are edm experts and take tickets of tomorrowland or other big festivals away!
Thanks

One of the greatest musicians of our time, who changed the world with his music, he wasn't afraid to try new things and he didn't feel the need to follow trends, he just did what he thought was right and ended up changing billions of lives. You cannot overstate the importance and influence he had.

I think he easily is the best DJ of our time,and not because he is dead.You could easily see it. His production-the country folk influences in his instrumentals was truly unique. Even on non-country like songs like Lonely Together, it was the real instruments that just made it stand out instead of generic EDM-Pop.And his lyrics, they were touching and very relatable. He should've become more famous in his lifetime, that is, if he had actually gotten help instead of committing suicide.

And instead,we got DJ's like DJ Khaled doing nothing but screaming "WE DA BEST MUSIC! " and "ANOTHER ONE,DJ KHALED". I bet if he had put Avicii on a song, we would've figured that out a long time ago. Avicii's production is so unique we could've telled it was his.

Also, I wanted to also mention that I was watching ARTV's video about how DJ Khaled does nothing and how he mentioned Avicii as a DJ that actually did something. He forgot to mention that Khaled weighs about a zillion pounds while ...more

3 DJ Tiesto Tijs Michiel Verwest, better known by his stage name Tiësto, is a Dutch DJ and record producer from Breda. He was named "the Greatest DJ of All Time" by Mix magazine in a poll voted by fans. In 2013, he was voted by DJ Magazine readers as the "best DJ of the last 20 years".

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, u 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 u want to party & dance then u can listen Skrillex & Guetta But if u wanna experience Hallucinations that u 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 ...more

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.

I love so many of the DJs on the list, but none of them top Tiesto. Rolling Stone, Mix Mag and DJ Mag knows it. He repeatedly gets voted number one in the industry by fans and experts because he deserves it on merit, originality, skill, range and versatility. He is in a league of his own. Genius.

I can't believe the David Guetta is number 2. He is way to mainstream and frankly, pretty underwhelming. Tiesto is an absolute genius. Skrillex is just loud and annoying, but I'm not a big dubstep fan so I guess that is just me. I think Deadmau5 should be higher than he is, he is possibly the most diverse Dj I've listened to. Seriously, put I Remember up against Raise Your Weapon, you wouldn't think they'd be by the same person.

4 Skrillex Skrillex is an American (Born in 1988, in Los Angeles, California) EDM producer who is known for popularizing dubstep. He is part of the bands Jack Ü (DJ) and From First To Last (Lead Singer). His album Recess debuted at 4 on the BB200, tying him with Zedd for the highest debut for an EDM album on ...read more.

Do you know what love is? It's scary monsters and nice sprites... Rock n roll...bangarang... Summit oh this song still gives me the chills even after hearing it a thousand times... Make it bun dem is the epitome of cool... There is kill everybody which is so true... So many variations and not one song sounds the same as others... Don't even get me started on the remixes, they are gold... Everything this guy touches turns to gold. Cinema and levels are two such songs... Of course the levels remix wasn't as good as the original song but it was still awesome. This man defines dubstep. On top of that, a very nice person too. Easy choice for number one.

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

I think Skrillex is the best.
Tiesto is good too. But he didn't compose Adagio for strings and Elements of life that is his best songs in my option.
I do not like Skrillex for his dubstep.
I like him for the beautiful melodis he does.
Scary monsters and nice sprites have one of the most beautiful and creative melodies I've heard.
The vocals in First of the year and Scary monsters and nice sprites is his own.

What! Why is Tiesto at a higher spot than Skrillex? I am not saying that Tiesto is bad in any way, since he Tiesto is quite good. But man, comparing him to Skrillex would be like comparing a man to a god! Plus, look at this guy! Look at his popularity and his hit songs! He is truuly the Beethoven of electric music!

5 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 popularizing work in the areas of progressive house and electrohouse, along with the genres themselves. ...read more.

my dad met him once, and he told me he sooooo down to earth guy, and I love his music along with martin garrix, zedd and newbie dj marshmallow

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.

Deadmau5 makes the some of the best music made by any DJ on this list, he has an incredible range of music styles that its just amazing, he truly deserves the No. 1 spot with songs like Strobe, Some Chords, Alone With You, Cthulu Sleeps and Ghosts N Stuff, as much as I wanted to vote for Avicii and Swedish House Mafia, I couldn't deny how much I absolutely love the musical stylings of the incredibly talented Deadmau5!

Deadmau5 is awesome. He makes the best DJ songs around. All of the technology he uses is astonishing and it rocks your head with awesomeness. In 2010 he made the album 4x4=12 and one song is called 4x4=12. He spent so much time on that song that he made it exactly 69 minutes and 55 seconds. My favorite song that he made was ghosts 'n' stuff featuring Rob swire. Deadmau5 should be the #1 DJ.

6 Calvin Harris Adam Richard Wiles, known professionally as Calvin Harris, is a Scottish DJ, record producer, singer, songwriter and remixer. He is known for his hit singles like Summer, This Is What You Came For and How Deep Is Love.

YOU DON'T KNOW ELECTRONIC UNTIL YOU'VE HEARD CALVIN HARRIS MUSIC. This guy and Avicii have been dominating the world of electronic music since 2011 and damn sure should be Top 5. Feel So Close, Levels, Wake Me Up, Let's Go, We Found Love, Sweet Nothing, etc are EDM national anthems and continue to rock all our parties.

He is the greatest DJ of all time. He can play the bass guitar, DJ, and write songs. That is a truly talented person. I can not understand why he is in the lower ten of the list.

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!

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.

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

I think people in this article is voting because of the production skills and not, dj skills, try to get a little bit more knowledge about the difference between a dj and a producer, dj is not making music, that's a producer, a dj's work is to shuffle the songs and make them sound nice on live, also to change tones, volumes, bass, etc... just check a hardwell live set he has a lot in his YouTube channel, just check them and you will see what a real dj is he is just AMAZING no one like him David guetta is not even a dj he's a fake dj he just uses pre-recorded sets and do things in the cdj machine when is off, how can be a person like him in the number one, hardwell because of what he does, not just in the great parties, is everywhere hardwell is just THE BEST

You people are crazy if you think that Hardwell is number six because you must have no knowledge if you haven't heard his song how we do or survivors or even his edit of the chain smokers don't let me down this guy is the best DJ ever do he should be in the top three or probably most likely number one

Hey hey, people was just joking am I right? Oh come on, this isn't April fool. He's the best! I fell in love with Apollo and Spaceman.. Great mix, great person, and style. Raise this vote guys! 3% isn't enough. I'm expecting more than this.

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.

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

How are they never listed as the most influential DJs ever, if not the most influential electronic artists ever?! Without their albums, NONE OF THESE OTHER GUYS WOULD EXIST. If their albums had not become worldwide, auto tune, synthpop, masked DJs, remixing, popular sampling, electronic house music, etc. would still be unpopular as they were before Daft came around. Daft are the only DJs that are truly unique, timeless, powerful, beautiful, and mind-blowing all into one. The quality of other DJs simply does not compare. Whenever they release an album, it literally changes the trend of the music industry. Most underrated beings on this planet!

They are just down because they don't release as much singles/albums as others do. Once they release an album all hell breaks loose.

These guys are like my no. 1 Idol. Guy and Thomas were the people that MOSTLY inspired me to become a DJ. I wish that someday, I can be like these guys. My favorite album by them is their second one, "Discovery." It has many upbeat songs, with my favorites being the one's with Romanthony. When they collaborate together, It's a full masterpiece waiting to be let out of its cage. I was so happy when they won the Grammy's with Random Access Memories. Daft Punk will always be my favorite DJ!
by the way My favorite DP songs are Technologic and One More Time.

Daft punk should be number 1! Best DJs in the world, for decades now offering excellence through music! Harder better faster stronger forever, also loving the new stuff, get lucky was a brave step with old style music from previous generations, Daft Punk defies time! :-)

9 Armin Van Buuren Armin van Buuren is a Dutch remixer, music producer, DJ, musician, pianist and songwriter from South Holland.

I have listen more than 100 DJs songs from last 5 years... in my view he deserves to be at 1st... five times first rank holder in dj maag rankings which is the record... now in 2015-16 many new faces like hardwell, avicii, martin garrix, Skrillex, deadmau5,etc rises and there is lot of competition in them... 10 years ago Armin was the best... and now after his new album embrace, we shows the world that no one can beats him.. in my opinion, Armin van buuren, David guetta and Calvin Harris are epic... ARMIN THEN,NOW,FOREVER

First of all, he should be #1, and he is.. This top ten is fake as hell. Armin van Buuren is the legend of trance and all DJ's around the world. He made EDM more popular so Armin should get all the credits.

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

I usually go for Tiesto, but seeing as how Armin Van Buuren is not at least #2 my vote goes out to him... DeadMau5 is not even a DJ, what guys...

10 Zedd Zedd is a Russian- German DJ known for his hits such as Clarity, Transmission, and Break Free. 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.

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).

What is going on! Such a great talented decent personality is just ranking 10th...are you people out of your senses not doubt be should be in top 5..and in my BEST DJ LIST he rAnks 1st... And here 10th... Oh hell if only he gets little support from you guys... Which he is getting very less! He is giving his 100% and wants 100% support from you all which in real he is just getting 10%... So guys bring a change...VOTE FOR ZEDD

What, how could he doesn't come in top 5 ranking, he is totally different from others. Hear he all songs from his latest album 'True color'. He is just great then Tiesto and others in ranking. This is not fair with him. Others who don't support him don't support, but I will support him till I die.

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

The Newcomers

The Contenders

11 Joe Hahn

This is the ONLY DJ I know who actually makes good music. He really gives a great effect to Linkin Park songs. Other DJs just make a bunch of lame crap. Joe Hahn, instead of starting a solo career, cared about making good music, not good money, hence he's still with Linkin Park, making real music.

Joe Hahn is not going anywhere from top ten, top 5 is what he deserve. He is a DJ but not like the others on this list. That makes him more special. He is the key to Linkin Park's successful debut with music people never seen before and still is now.

Did you actually know he is actually a Korean? He just changed his nationality and he proved that Asians can be DJs too. His creativity and his work with Linkin Park just inspires me a lot.

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.

12 Martin Garrix Martijn Gerard Garritsen, known professionally Martin Garrix, is a Dutch DJ, record producer and musician.

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.

He should be the fifth one... He is such a talented person a perfect DJ.. His sense of MIXING songs is just so good...No other DJ can compete to him accept Zedd,David guetta,Avicii and Tiesto... But surprisingly he ranks 16th... It's all in your hands,pals! Don't know why you aren't voting! He is giving his 100% he expects 100% from you... SO GUYS VOTE FOR MARTIN GARRIX..

Just the best, love all his songs. Really love: Lions In The Wild, Tremor, Animals, In The Name Of Love, Dragon, Oops, and Forbidden Voices. They are just the best, love Martin

Martin Garrix should be in the top 3 man! Listen to his songs my favourite Forbidden Voices Animals Gold Skies Don't Look Down and more

13 Mad Mike Metrovich

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

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

cause he was the best a great guy...

14 Afrojack Nick van de Wall, commonly known by his stage name Afrojack, is a Dutch DJ, record producer and remixer.

You are like a god for me afrojack. Everyday when I get out of my bed I start my day with your songs. Fantastic man. But how is he not number 1. People support him please

Your Song ( Ten Feet Tall And Summer Thing ) Is Best Forever... Afrojack Should Be In Top Ten List... ( BECAUSE HE MAKES VERY GOOD SONGS )...

Looking for a dream just listen to it guys best artist ever tiesto is boring

He is the best dj ever better than david guetta. It is adisgrace if he is not at the top of the list

15 Swedish House Mafia Swedish House Mafia is a Swedish house music supergroup consisting of Axwell, Steve Angello and Sebastian Ingrosso.

How can the creator of this list not put SHM on the TOP dude these guys make the most epic music ever! DYWC, STW, ONE ALL ARE AMAZING MTI THEY GET GUYS LIKE TINI TEMPETH AND HAVE THE BIGGEST CROWDS AND I'VE DJD BEFORE THESE GUYS ARE AMAZING BUT I HAVE TO ADMIT SKRILLEX FILLS IN EVERY BORING SPOT IN HIS MUSIC WITH SOMETHING OR THE OTHER WHICH IS EPIC SHM can improve on there boring stuff, but they r brakin up my favorite djs :-(

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... What the hell is up with you people? They are the best. DYWC is just the best. How could you not like them?

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

16 DJ Fresh

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

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

Anyone who has actually seen this guy live knows why...

18 Moby Moby is an American musician, who has produced inventive new styles to various subgenres of electronic music, inspired by 1950's gospel as much as by modern rock, and musicians from New Order to David Bowie. ...read more.

How are all the old school DJs down here?

19 Benny 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!

20 Fatboy Slim

I wasted my vote. Now I realize DJ Khaled is above Norman. How stupid.

205? This dude is a legend, bring him to the top 10!

Right about now. The funk soul brother!

This guy should be on the top 10

21 Steve Aoki Steven Hiroyuki "Steve" Aoki is an American electro house musician, record producer, and music executive.

Innovated nothing. Just continued what others have been doing in EDM since the '90's.

DJs now are more known for their fashion sense or for the celebrities they have been seen with as opposed to actual technical ability or for creating something original that has to do with music. FFS, there are Playboy models selling out arenas that cannot even blend beats together properly (train wrecking).

Steve Aoki at 70, really
He should at least be in the top 15
Have you ever heard his Pursuit of happiness remix, Classic

Steve Aoki is the 5th richest DJ in the world. This is all because of his famous songs. He deserves to be in the top 10.

Steve Aoki is obviosly the best he is #1 his music is the greatest all his songs are better

22 DJ Khaled Khaled Mohamed Khaled, known professionally as DJ Khaled, is an American record producer, radio personality, DJ and record label executive.

Dj khaled is the best dj and should be in the top 15

He's the best music! Another one! DJ Khaled!

Dj khaled is number 1 no doubt

LEGEND OF THE GAME

23 Tiesto Tijs Michiel Verwest, better known by his stage name Tiësto, is a Dutch DJ and record producer from Breda. He was named "the Greatest DJ of All Time" by Mix magazine in a poll voted by fans. In 2013, he was voted by DJ Magazine readers as the "best DJ of the last 20 years".

Only the third tiesto on the list. maybe he'd be first if you all voted for the same tiesto

24 The Chainsmokers The Chainsmokers are an American DJ and production duo consisting of Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart. The EDM-pop duo achieved a breakthrough with their 2014 song "#Selfie", which was a top twenty single in several countries.

Are you kidding me, these guys are the best, they should've been on the top 5 list

They don't deserve to be on 56th position...anyway, I am a BIG FAN!

The chainsmokers r amazing they should be in the top 20

I love them songs. They are ia handsome guys had much talent

25 Alan Walker

My favorite songs: memories, burn, new heart, big universe, the raid, celebrate, fire of the soul, burn 2.0, long road, relax, above the sky, hope, energy, sky, 135, war of melodies, energy, flying dreams, force, spetre, the spetre, sing me to sleep, alone, r0ut1n3, routine, force, walkzarx, new energy, perry, denis, fade, faded, all falls down, and all remix and all other songs
