Who Is The #1 DJ In The World For 2009?
There are a number of different polls but DJ Mag is one of the big ones. For 2 years running DJMag readers and pollsters have voted Armin van Buuren (NL) as the #1 DJ. For 2008 he was followed by Tiësto (NL) at #2, Paul van Dyke (D) at #3, Above & Beyond (GB) at #4 and David Guetta (F) at #5. But the polls are closed for 2009 and the new #1 will be announced this Wednesday night at Ministry of Sound in London. Are you attending? My money is on David Guetta for #1 following his incredible year. Here's his new House song On The Dance Floor that once again mixes hip hop/rap into a House beat. (BTW, DJ#91 in the Top 100 is Steve Lawler (GB) and he plays tomorrow night (Tuesday) at Firestone.)
Wednesday Update: Well the votes are in and Armin van Buuren repeats for the 3rd year in a row as the #1 DJ in the world. Tiësto remains at #2 while David Guetta moved up to #3, Above & Beyond to #4 and Paul van Dyke was #5. Visit DJMag.com for the entire Top 100.
