Results: DJ Mag’s 2016 Top 100 DJs

The results are in for DJ Mag’s 2016 Top 100 DJs poll!

Martin Garrix tops the list as 2016’s top DJ after moving up from the #3 spot in 2015.
This year, DJ Mag asked voters to back up their choices by telling why they chose their DJs:

“The top answer was music style (36%), with 28% opting for DJ skill and 24% for production ability. Only 3% suggested they voted for a DJ because of their popularity, and only 6% due to showmanship. This suggests that it’s not about who is famous or who performs various ‘antics’ behind the decks, but it’s the music and the way sets are put together, and shows the importance of production in helping a DJ/producer to break into the big-time.” via DJMag.com
