Top 100 DJs 2005

Record number of votes received again!

A staggering 123,933 dance music fans voted in DJmag's 2005 Top 100 DJs poll.

That's 33,000 more than last year and a true indication that dance music is still a massive global phenomenon.

The truly global reach of DJ culture was once again highlighted with votes coming in from 147 different countries.

The USA provided the most votes in 2005, closely followed by the UK, and then Germany.

There are interviews with all 100 of the DJs that made it into the poll in DJmag's special collector's edition of the magazine. Out Now.

The Results


1 Paul van Dyk - PVD is the new No.1 DJ in the world, knocking TiŽsto off the top spot. The German trancer has been in the Top 10 since 1998.
2 TiŽsto - Depite losing his crown, Dutch trance superstar TiŽsto remains one of the biggest spinners the world has ever seen.
3 Armin Van Buuren - Armin holds the No.3 spot for a third year, but with his own grand scale solo stadium gigs planned, watch this space.
4 Sasha - Non-mover Sasha has fully embraced the world of digital DJing in 2005, touring non-stop using Ableton Live.
5 Ferry Corsten - His brand of trance is an incredibly popular sound. Ferry is one of the biggest and best exponents of this style.
6 John Digweed - Former No.1 DJ John Digweed is up two spots this year, a sign that his recent cutting-edge sets are getting even more popular.
7 Hernan Cattaneo - Despite dropping one place this year, Argentinian DJ Hernan Cattaneo remains one of the major players in house music.
8 Deep Dish - Deep Dish climb two places this year. The release of their album 'George Is On' cemented the boys production credentials too.
9 ATB - German DJ ATB makes his first entry into the big Top 10. Seven artist albums under his belt, he's a huge star in his own country.
10 Carl Cox - Coxy is one of the world's most recognisable DJs. This year he moves up a place, proof that he still rocks it every time.
