As contentious as the yearly results might be, there’s no denying the interest that builds around the DJ Mag Top 100 DJs poll. There’s a new #1 set to unseat David Guetta in 2012 (we’re still not sure if that means an entirely ‘new’ winner, or a returning poll hero like Armin van Buuren or Tiesto), and the past 12 months have been especially strong for big names like Swedish House Mafia and Avicii. As DJ Mag builds toward the announcement of the Top 100 this Friday at Amsterdam Dance Event, they’ve started a slow reveal of the DJs voted #150-#101.

Queensland’s own The Stafford Brothers have polled at #140, ahead of an Australian summer that sees them touring with Future Music Festival. With a residency at Marquee Las Vegas and a slot this weekend at London’s iconic Ministry Of Sound alongside Roger Sanchez, the duo’s profile is certainly trebling in 2012. The other reveals so far include Stereosonic-bound tech-houser Joris Voorn at #148 and Sidney Samson and Kyau & Albert dropping out of the Top 100. We’ll keep updating the list below if the poll is something you like to keep tabs on.

On Friday night, the new #1 will be flying by private jet to DJ at two parties running simultaneously – the first at Amsterdam Convention Factory for ADE and then Ministry Of Sound in London. The ADE line-up includes Hardwell, Arty, Sander van Doorn and R3hab, while over in London there’s Markus Schulz, Thomas Gold, Orjan Nilsen and Sean Tyas.

From those support casts, we’re going to take a punt at Armin van Buuren reclaiming the top spot in 2012. Unless DJ Mag is throwing out a red herring, we can’t see Guetta, Afrojack, Avicii or ‘not a f*#king DJ’ Deadmau5 meshing comfortably with those line-ups. Or maybe it’s Above & Beyond’s year to jump from #5 to #1…
