Sony inthemix50 reveals... the 'forgotten 50'

Image for Sony inthemix50 reveals... the 'forgotten 50'

This year’s Sony inthemix50 poll received a huge amount of attention, generating plenty of discussion among dance music fans and very nearly staging a takeover of social networks at times; but what is sometimes overlooked is the massive amount of DJ talent who don’t quite make it into the poll. Gutted at the thought your favourite might have been only a couple of votes shy of cracking the top 50? Well, prepare to satisfy your curiosity, as ITM lifts the lid on the ‘forgotten 50’, the results of those who ranked 51-100 in this year’s Sony inthemix50.

2009 Sony inthemix50 – 51-100 Revealed!

There’s a few interesting observations to be drawn from the ‘forgotten 50’. A handful of more established names pop up who failed to make it into the top 50, like Pee Wee Ferris and TV Rock, while for those who were a little disappointed at the shortage of female DJ talent will be pleased to see names like Jewelz, Helena, DJ Kat, Minx and even Ruby Rose clearing a 51-100 ranking.

There’ll no doubt be a few techno fans happy to see hugely credible names like Dave Pham and Mike Callander getting a look-in for the 51-100, and equally the ‘forgotten 50’ throws light on some of the DJs who are making ground across the country (with Mike Nichol and Scott Richardson doing the trance scene proud, in particular). Could we see some of these new names continuing their ascent through the ranks in 2010?

Kibee, I agree with you that the industry needs to put aside it's old school sexism when dealing with female djs, but ITM50 is a people's choice poll. If the aforementioned female djs have made it into the top 100, then surely they have earned their place

Hey bsxDownhill.. thanks for the response. I agree the poll is the peoples choice, my point is about getting the females up there in the first place so they can get the exposure they need. Of the women that got in there I have seen Jewelz and DJ Kat and

Take a look at the competion to play the opening set at God's Kitchen, almost none of the DJ's played trance and the female DJ looks like something from Goldfingers!! Sexism is rampant amongst promoters. Give the girls a chance to show that they can play.
