Resident Advisor Ranks The Worlds 100 Top DJs

Move over Hardwell, there's a new #1 DJ in town

2014 was undoubtedly a revolutionary year for EDM, and it saw the meteoric rise of a plethora of talented djs and producers. As DJ Mag continues to display their interpretation of our scene's Top 100 DJs each year, there has been a growing discrepancy between the validity and true representation of these artists and their rankings. It seems nowadays that anyone with a massive marketing budget will land a spot on their "illustrious" chart.

Despite all of this, one music publication known as Resident Advisor believes their fan-based list is a better representation of the Top 100 DJ list, despite it focusing almost entirely on the underground scene. From deep house to tech to trance and everything in between, Resident Advisor ranked their Top 100 DJs this year, and the results are surprising to say the least. Here are the 100 Top DJs -
