good to see it's not just full of electro crowd pleasers.
Def a good pick.
Have you checked out Marsh Media recently?

I think that is a shit list.

Raresh is shithouse (seen him and he is shocking), same villalobos (who needs sleeping pills when you have him), order is out of wack etc. Digweed shits mountains of poo over anyone else in the top 10, I could go on and on


yes it's better then the DJMAG poll, but that is not saying much at all.



how the fuck is ricardo "experimental"? seen him twice, he just keeps the same groove for fucking ages, plays some track with an accordion and then back to the same shit.


this list makes me angry. I mean locodice top 5?

he one of the worst acts I have ever seen.


This list makes me angry

i agree and disagree with ya on this one, list looks like ritchies top 20 mates, as for digweed, imo the dude is fucking poo, plays shit music and mixes it very short and boring, not far off intro outro stuff.

yeah I guess, been listening 15+ years, but I'm certainly not stuck in the past.

that list is just a top Flavor of the month chart



I could go on and on about shit the list is and why, but fuck it. Yes there are some awesome acts in this list, but all it does it proves how effective marketing and hype is.


Imo it is certainly not a true reflection of the top 100 djs in the world


and truba, I am not saying digweed is number 1 but he is much better then anyone in that top 10.

you know, at the end of the day when it comes polls, it's always a popularity contest.

the winners will be the ones who are flavours of the month.

Notice how there's no Trance DJ's in that list? RA doesn't cover Trance.

Have you heard any of Troxler's good mixes? He mixes all sorts of different shit, blends it perfectly with a very unique sound. The limited amount of Digweed I've heard doesn't impress me anywhere near as much as what Seth can do at the controls.

i'm pretty sure he mixes of cds, heard some of his sets that are pretty nice, he likes to abuse the echo/delay thingy and loops stuff a fair bit, solid dj, not a massive fan of stuff he plays, sometimes good others pretty average but he never disappoints when mixing, always pretty solid

i think it's pretty much what i would expect from a RA poll.

House / Tech is pretty much RA's bread & butter so it's no surprise to see a chart like that.
