The search is on for the greatest DJ of all time

Image for The search is on for the greatest DJ of all time

ITM knows from experience how epic an undertaking it is to put together big countdowns and lists, why, even this year we’ve had The Greatest Live Dance Acts and the Top Albums of the Decade not to mention this year’s shook-up inthemix50! Now our desk-bound dance brethren over at Mixmag are doing a list of their own, attempting to find and crown the greatest DJ of all time.

Launched this week, Mixmag’s search for the best DJ of, like, forever, has swung into full effect, with the UK publication urging fans to get online and cast their vote for their all-time #1 DJ.

But here’s the tricky part where fans start to bicker, as voters can only pick DJs from a list selected by Mixmag and a cast of international DJs who’ve nominated their personal favourites. It’s an interesting system, and the DJs polled offer up the reasons behind their picks in a series of video interviews, a choice few of which you can view below with the likes of James Zabiela praising Sasha and 2manydjs professing their love for Erol Alkan.

Check out and dissect the full nominations list below and head over to Mixmag.net to get votin’.
