Armada - With incredible pride, we bring you the news that this year’s DJ Mag Top 100 list features no less than 17 Armada DJ’s! Topping the list for the historic fifth year in a row, is Armin van Buuren, who claimed back the number one for the first time in the history of the poll!
He was voted #1 in 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010, and after one year of lending the crown to David Guetta, Armin van Buuren got it back in 2012! But there’s many more Armada DJ’s that have made a remarkable rise this year. What about Dash Berlin, who’s still rising and rising, and now claimed number 7 on the DJ Mag Top 100? Markus Schulz was voted ‘America’s Best DJ’ by DJ Times Magazine only a few weeks ago, and now takes in lucky number 13 in the popularity poll of DJ Mag. Egyptian superstars Aly & Fila went up one, grabbing hold of an incredible #19.
But the biggest stars this year, are the new talents. W&W rose from 36 to #25 this year, Orjan Nilsen went up 17 places, rising all the way to 32! Tenishia have made the biggest rise of the Armada DJ’s, climbing 41(!) places to #50! Rising stars Omnia and Shogun, both rocking the trance scene, respectively take charge of #58 and #68. Australia’s tyDi grabs hold of #71, while upcoming producer & DJ Andrew Rayel surprises everyone with a #77 position! Youngsters Heatbeat, Buenos Aires locals, make a brand new entry at number 81!
John O’Callaghan, the absolute number one of Ireland, takes a worldwide stand at #55, while living legend Paul Oakenfold remains at #69. Hungarian duo Myon & Shane 54, who were the first Hungarian DJ’s to enter the DJ Mag in 2009, now made it to #80! Last but not least, Roger Shah grabs #84 and Andy Moor rocks #87!
We’d like to thank each and every one of you for casting your vote and continuously supporting us and our DJ’s, and want to congratulate those that made it to the DJ Mag Top 100!
