Less than 24 hours after the results of the DJ Mag Top 100 DJs list for 2013 have been announced, the DAD staff has been pouring over the standings, trying to make sense of where the DJs landed... and why some DJs didn't make it. After dissecting rankings and thinking over the year of 2013, DAD's surprised. Not shocked, just surprised. Here is a list of what's surprised us (and made us chuckle) about the 2013 DJ Mag Top 100 DJs list.

    Totally agree with the lack of “bass dj’s” in here. It lacks of trap producers as UZi (quiet a technical dj if you watch him working live) Bro safari, Floss’ etc, and it’s true that way too many of them are a bunch of trance/house djs… next year maybe we’ll see guys like Munchi, Dj Snake, Major Lazor, Uzi, Bro Safari and others become new entries representing moombah, trap, dubstep and so on.

    keep in mind that mainly Europeans are voting here… Diplo isn’t that big of a deal in EU, neither is Mad Decent… Not if you compare to the status the imprint has in US at least.

      Which would make sense if 2013 wasn’t also the DJs list debut of Dillon Francis and Krewella. Even if Diplo “isn’t that big of a deal in EU,” I doubt that means he’s just not getting into European consciousness.

  • The Colonel

    The lack of bassmusic DJ’s isn’t that surprising because this list has always been skewed towards big-room Euro DJ’s.

    Which is why I’ve never rated this list.

    Sounds like a couple of American bitches crying because they don’t understand why the rest of the world doesn’t share their poor taste in “EDM”.

    • khal

      You’d say that in a list where we were wondering why bass music DJs aren’t included?

      Avicii did huge numbers with “Wake Me Up” in the UK. As a matter of fact, London was hugely in love with America’s EDC. So save the “poor taste in ‘EDM’” comments for a conversation where that commentary makes sense.

    The fact that dj bl3nd made the list defies all logic.
