(2nd post here, and reason I signed up for the site)
It's a good list, but wreaks of RA. I definitely prefer it to the Top 100 popularity contest of bull shite that DJ Mag puts out. Really great to see females in there. Surprised Sasha is that high. I didn't think he was touring that much. Disappointed that it seems to all be 4/4 stuff, but that is RA's audience. I'm satisfied with their #1. I'm surprised they didn't mention he was recently picked up by Jay-Z's label. Richie Hawtin recently toured live and streamed every night of the tour. He is on another level, and then some. Watching him up close is a real treat.
I have seen the majority of that list perform this year, but only b/c I run a website that follows live video streams of DJs and Festivals on the internet. Pretty much everyone on that list streamed a live performance for free from various venues around the world. If interested, check out my site, The Stream Lab
, and add us on Twitter/FB if you want updates. Nic Fanciulli played earlier, and Sharam (of Deep Dish fame) will play tonight. Pretty sure some of the BPM festival will be streamed as well.
I love edm, obviously, but the music is starting to pass me up. Chillout/downtempo is my favorite genre these days.
