Reddit Reveals Top 100 DJs of the Year – Did Your Fave Make the Cut?

The best way to meet other EDM fans is naturally at festivals and music events, but sometimes when you can’t stop gushing about your favorite DJs, online communities are nice, too. Our favorite subreddit on Reddit.com is naturally r/EDM, and the good folks there have compiled their current list of top 100 DJs.

The subreddit had 572 Reddit users vote for their favorites, and the votes went to 425 different DJs. Though their list was 100 DJs long, we’re going to stick to looking at the top 25 so we don’t get too overwhelmed by awesomeness.

Here are Reddit’s top 25 DJs:

1. Martin Garrix

“I’m number one, baby!”

2. The Chainsmokers
3. Porter Robinson
4. Hardwell
6. Marshmello
7. Flume
8. Illenium
9. Skrillex

Skrillex would have to do something totally awful to stop making the top DJ lists at this point.

10. Madeon
11. Dillon Francis
12. Eric Prydz
13. deadmau5

It wouldn’t be a top DJ list without deadmau5, even if he does give crazy Twitter rants.

14. Zedd
15. Tiësto
16. Don Diablo
17. Oliver Heldens
18. Galantis
19. DJ Snake
20. Axwell /\ Ingrosso
21. Armin van Buuren
22. W&W
23. Bassnectar
24. RL Grime
25. Kaskade

Mostly these are artists we’d expect everybody to love, but there were a few surprises as well. Porter Robinson (who hasn’t released any new music in 2016) and Don Diablo have a bigger following than we expected, but it’s also interesting to see that cash king Calvin Harris didn’t crack the top 25–nor did Diplo, Alesso or Kygo, but given the fact that these guys have more commercial hits, it makes sense that a niche group like r/EDM would cast their votes elsewhere.

Then again, the Chainsmokers made it to the number two spot, and they’ve had no shortage of commercial hits this year. They even performed at the VMAs and are dominating the Billboard charts.
