In case you’ve been out partying all weekend and missed the news, on Friday October 16 DJ Mag revealed their Top 100 DJs results at Amsterdam Music Festival.

Voted 100 per cent by the electronic music loving public – with a reported million-plus votes pledged in every voter-registered country! – the results reflect the mainstream taste of the global dancefloors… With just a smidgeon of the good stuff lurking among the EDM and trance big guns.

The full 100 is listed below and, for the first time in its 23 year history, it’s topped by a duo (Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike). Here are some interesting elements we’ve noticed from a bass music perspective…

* Skrillex is in the list twice: Jack U were a new entry at 45 while solo he’s the only artist to rep the bass in the top 10 at 9.

* Diplo is in the list thrice! As Jack U (obvs), as himself (20) and as Major Lazer (54)

* Two D&B DJs have made the list (as opposed to the usual one) with Netksy storming into the poll at 75. Top 100 DJ poll soldier Andy C hit the list at 92.

* Flux Pavilion’s Flux100 mission paid off; he’s repping in the Top 100 for the first time at 86

* Trap has also made its mark on the Top 100 DJs poll with DJ Snake hitting the top 40 at 33 and Yellow Claw making their poll debut at 76

* Dillon Francis, Borgore and Knife Party are all representing in the Top 100 for another year. However, they’ve all moved down the chart. In the case of Knife Party they’ve moved down the chart 47 places!

* While he’s not usually categorised as ‘bass music per se’ – massive props to the low-end loving Oliver Heldens… He’s shot up the chart 22 places!

* While he’s not bass music in any way whatsoever, Angerfist is a really cool DJ name

As ever, the poll results have caused all sorts of uproar and divisive chatter among fans – and DJs – online over the weekend. But that should come as no surprise at all.
