It would be great to start this piece saying “finally the Top100 DJs period is over”, but we will be more diplomatic. The time of votation for Top100 Dj Mag 2019 is over and the final chart is released thanks to the support of the huge community of EDM lovers and final users.
Users, i.e. fans, enthusiasts, music-industry professionals, and whoever is in the world of the Electronic Dance Music expressed their preferences by voting the Top 100 DJs/Producers in the World. The controversies around the chart are getting louder and louder. Indeed, in the last years is accused of providing distorted results and an unrealistic/misrepresented image of the EDM World. After the triplet from Martin Garrix, this year the highest rank of the Top100 DJs is again in the hands of the “gods from Tomorrowland” Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike. Yes, again, since in 2015, the “iPad brothers” (this is how they were nicknamed) won the so-desired prize.
We clearly are not agreeing with this result. Although many releases in this 2019, and the return of the project “3 Are Legend” on the 15th anniversary of Tomorrowland, the two Belgian brothers got the reputation of “best Djs in the World”.
