Martin Garrix (#1), Hardwell (#three), Armin van Buuren (#four), Tiesto (#6) All Haven't Even ACKNOWLEDGED The DJ Mag Top 100, So Why Should We?

I used to be simply wanting on Instagram and seen that DJ Mag #1 DJ Martin Garrix hasn't even talked about wherever on his socials about being #1 on the DJ Mag ballot and that appeared variety odd to me, so I made a decision to have a look at a number of extra artists social accounts to see in the event that they acknowledged their placements, and boy was I shocked.

Martin Garrix (#1), Hardwell (#three), Armin van Buuren (#four), & Tiesto (#6) all have not even ACKNOWLEDGED the DJ Mag Top 100 record, and I solely have appeared by the highest 6. Other huge DJ's comparable to Laidback Luke, Gareth Emery, Dillon Francis, Diplo, 3lau, Deadmau5  & extra have all overtly bashed the credibility the ballot, some even refusing to partake in all of it collectively.

I do not bear in mind a yr the place this ballot has ever been as ineffective. Call me loopy, however possibly we cease doing these silly DJ ranks? What different music style ranks their artists by some ridiculous ballot that has no knowledge or details behind it? Why is that this ACTUALLY wanted? All it does is divide followers, result in disheartened DJ's who did not make it, and promotes false success by bought votes and vote manipulation.

I truthfully suppose DJ Mag, Billboard, reddit & all over the place else ought to cease rating DJ's. I do know this may not ever occur, but it surely for SURE looks like persons are caring much less and fewer about these polls. You cannot “rank” a techno DJ up in opposition to a dubstep DJ, and you'll't rank a home DJ up in opposition to a hardstyle DJ as their scenes are utterly completely different.

What do you suppose?
