Brazilian DJ and dance music producer Vintage Culture has taken the #1 spot in 1001Tracklists' "Top 101 Producers" list for 2021. David Guetta, Kryder, Armin van Buuren, and John Summit follow.
This year's list contains artists from 27 different countries. The United Kingdom and Netherlands total nearly 40% of the artists represented. 33 artists made their first appearance and eight have re-entered. AVIRA, Armand van Helden, KC Lights, and MARTEN HØRGER were the producers that saw the biggest rise within the list.
Guetta championed this list back in 2019 for his pioneering future rave sound. His continued success over the years paved the way for his close friend and collaborator MORTEN to rise through the rankings to #20.
