Taking the top spot is Oliver Heldens followed by MEDUZA (#2), Armin van Buuren (#3), Tiësto (#4), and David Guetta (#5), rounding out the top five. RetroVision, Diplo, Don Diablo, Leandro Da Silva, and Martin Ikin make up the top 10.
Oliver jumped 23 spots to make number one, as we expected, Oliver Heldens did a decent job this year and this is bearing fruit even before the DJ Mag results were announced: an archive of 1001 tracklist playlists collected his statistics and summed up – Oliver became the most played producer this year, breaking the record of author’s releases among the world’s top DJ -elites! With a total Unique DJ Support: 1,033 plays
But there are plenty more impressive jumps including Malaa, Nitti Gritti, Matroda, and more. It’s exciting to see all the strong newcomers — Party Favor, Vintage Culture, SWACQ, MORTEN, Roman Messer, and so many more.

HOW WAS EACH ARTIST’S SCORE CALCULATED?
Once again, we recall how this top from 1001tracklists was compiled: the 1001Tracklists system is completely devoted to collecting and analyzing data. The results show the producers who have earned the most DJ support in the last 12 months. Any track released in the last 2 years can be qualified and earned points for every use of the track in DJ sets, live shows, radio shows, mixes, and podcasts.
It’s strange not to see many famous DJs here, but this is based on statistical evidence.
