Sony inthemix50 reveals... the 'forgotten 50'
Wed 9th Sep, 2009 Newsin
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.
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?
