Top Ten DJs


The Top Ten

1 David Guetta David 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!

2 Avicii Avicii Tim Bergling, better known by his stage name Avicii, is a Swedish electronic musician, DJ, remixer and record producer.

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!

One of the best dj's and a wonderful music producer with meoldy and positive vibes

3 DJ Tiesto DJ 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 ...more - 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

BEST DJ EVER! This guy is awesome. He makes the best songs of all time (his song Suburban Train is literally the magnum opus of music). His songs are just PERFECTION! He REVOLUTIONIZED the EDM industry. In fact, I consider him the absolute legend of music along with Metallica. - PhoenixAura81

4 Skrillex 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 more.

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

Skrillew is the god of all dj and edm

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

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.

Many artists can come and go nuts there will always be one Deadmau5, he's always the best in my list and this guy proved that you always don't have to be orthodox to have fans

6 Hardwell 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.

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

Mixes live, awesome song selections, sick releases!

7 Calvin Harris Calvin Harris Adam Richard Wiles, known professionally as Calvin Harris, is a Scottish DJ, record producer, singer, songwriter and remixer . He was known with his hit singles like Summer, This Is What You Came For and How Deep Is Love . He also was cheated on by Taylor Swift in their relationship for Tom Hiddleston more.

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 the king of dance. Calvin should be higher in the chart, you haven't seen Tiesto being classed as the king of dance. Calvin should be number 1

We found love, enough said - MisterX

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

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!

Have you heard Starboy and I Feel It Coming? Those sengs has the best instrumentals for years!

10 Zedd 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, 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 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.

Zedd is a beast

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".

These guys are truly amazing. - EastZombie

13 Martin Garrix 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.

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

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

Hey Martin Harris should be in top 2 he is awesome

15 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!

16 Paul 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!

Simply the best of all time.

Paul van dyk is a legend live he is the best dj in the history, he even won an oscar do, he shuffles with a men in the drums on live

17 Mad 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

21 Joe Hahn

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!

In fact! Joe Hahn is the best DJ ever, he can make something different with his skill in Linkin Park

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.

Have you listened to Cure For The Itch? It just proves his ability!
