The UK picks their #1 DJ

Image for The UK picks their #1 DJ

We won the One-Dayers, they won the Ashes, we have the inthemix50 and they have Data Transmission’s Top 40 DJ poll. Our good friends over at Data Transmission polled their UK readers to pick the DJ – or DJs as it were – most loved by Britons.

While Phantasy boss and all-round innovator Erol Alkan has lifted the crown for the previous two polls, this year’s title has been won by trance’s pre-eminent trio Above & Beyond.

Trading places with Erol in this year’s poll, Above & Beyond showed that trance is still a very powerful force in the UK, especially with the trio’s own radio show Trance Around The World keeping them in the spotlight.

Elsewhere on the list there were some other big changes with a host of new entries for established DJs like Markus Schulz, Joris Voorn, Mark Knight and Jaguar Skills, while dubstep fans voted their heroes up with big moves for Rusko, Benga and Skream.

You can check out the full poll results below including the DJs ranking from 41-60 – go Jaytech! – and to read the congratulatory interview with Above & Beyond just hit up Data Transmission.
