Results of Top 100 DJ Poll released


30 oct. 2009, 17h55m

Unsurprisingly to most of us clubbers, Armin van Buuren has snagged the top DJ spot for the third year in a row. And he got the call that he'd won yet again whilst on honeymoon.

"I couldn't believe it," he says with a huge smile. "I still can't believe it. I expected David Guetta to win so I was totally blown away. This was the least expected one. I can understand that people might think that if you win it for the third time it's not that special anymore. But, for me, it's the most special." Hear his gratitude for his fans in his own words in the video below.

DJ Mag has tacked up substantial articles on a lot of the top 100 DJs up at their site. You can find Van Buuren's here. In it, he reveals that Ben Liebrand has been Holland's best kept secret since the ’80s, and why the Pioneer CDJ-2000 is his favourite tech toy.

Also, Armin Only, a book about his work and successes, has finally been translated from Dutch to English.

The other nine DJs in the top ten, from 2 to 10, are Tiësto, David Guetta, Above & Beyond, Paul van Dyk, deadmau5, Ferry Corsten, Markus Shultz, Gareth Emery, and Sander Van Doorn.

To celebrate, I'm posting a video of him performing this year at Opera nightclub in Atlanta, the very club where I had the honour of clasping his hand. (I'm still sore from seeing Sasha there a couple of nights ago.)
