And the jury’s out. The Resident Advisor Top 100 DJ poll has just been announced. The yearly barometer of underground dance artists, based partly on user voting and editorial selection, has once again put Dixon on the number one spot after winning in 2013 and 2014 as well.
Following in his lead are Maceo Plex on #2, Tale of Us on #3., followed respectively by Ben UFO, Jackmaster, Villalobos, Seth Troxler, Ben Klock, Âme and Rødhåd on #10.
The biggest Dutch surge comes from Job Jobse, who has risen from the #97 spot to #28. An impressive accomplishment by one of late Trouw’s prominent residents, who has more international bookings now than Dutch gigs, all without releasing a single record. Something quite rare in this day.
