With Belgium brothers Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike hailing the number 1 position, there slurry of chart-topping House and Electro releases has rightfully secured themselves crowning position among EDM royalty. At number 2 sits Hardwell, another name we have become well acquainted with. Hardwell who has been dethroned after a 2 year run as DJ Mag’s reigning DJ has perhaps been too busy filming his documentary “I Am Hardwell”, collaborating with rising jungle terror star Wiwek, as well as DJ Mag’s number 4’s Armin van Buuren to maintain a stranglehold on Dj Mag’s apex position. 19 year old Dutch producer and DJ Martin Garrix rounds out the top 3 position and proves that age doesn’t matter when it comes to producing high-energy chart-toppers like “The Only Way Is Up” who Garrix recently coproduced earlier this year with Dj Mag’s number 5 DJ, Tiesto. While Dj Mags’s top 5 may not come as a surprise to many, it only shows of the unequivocal power of aggressive largescale promotional campaigns as well as the relevance of popular genres in deciding who’s who among the ranks of popular DJs. As the popularity of techno and trance gradually wane and the prevalence of house and electro continue to garner support from top DJs, those who deny the current trends in music, or simply do not have enough money to afford lavish marketing campaigns will inevitable suffer losses in global popularity.
