@Vivek, PvD is great!

Comment by Vivek Jaising on October 12, 2013 at 1:22pm

@Martin Buskoop  you are right, Carl Cox is also a strong candidate, Personally I Voted for PvD - Who can forget " For An Angel " It's my all time Favorite EDM track.

Comment by Martin Buskoop on October 12, 2013 at 11:32am

@Vivek don't forget Carl Cox..

Comment by Vivek Jaising on October 12, 2013 at 8:01am

I won't be surprised if Paul Van Dyk or Tiesto make it to # 1, Armin is also a strong Candidate.. Lets see.

Comment by Ovrik Bentree on October 11, 2013 at 4:51pm

Nice Top 10 Benjamin, they should be in the list.. Let's see.

I do not really understand these three by the way: 2ManyDJs, Seth Troxler, 14. Tony De Vit
