FYI | The DJ Mag Top 100 Poll Is Live, Thank God

Posted by on July 16, 2013


Has it really only been five minutes nine months since the results of the 2012 DJ Mag Top 100 Poll? Wow. That totally flew by.

The DJ Mag poll is more than just a poll, of course; it’s an increasingly dominant internet sideshow that is about to become a larger part of your life than you’d probably like. How we’ve missed the pageantry of it all — the fervent sense of camaraderie that gets expressed through status updates (see above); the earnest pleas to our finer sensibilities (“a vote for Steve Aoki is a vote for pandas!”); the reliable kvetching from @Deadmau5 (“lol fuk this poll…even though I always crush the top 5 #whatever”); and, of course, the overwhelming sense of inevitability anticipation (spoiler alert: Armin wins in 2013). The only thing better than Shark Week is the DJ Mag Top 100 Poll!

In truth, this year’s poll is already shaping up to be even more unbearable than ever, due to two very distinct forces coming together to create a veritable perfect storm of awfulness:

1) Hashtags over everything. (Case in point: Ferry Corsten is now a hashtag on his own Facebook page.)

2) The EDM Explosion of 2010-Present — or whatever phrase du jour you, your grandmother, and/or The New York Times are using to refer to this awesome/terrible watershed moment in our musical metanarrative.

So if you think you’re in for anything more than a whole lotta this for the next three months…well, LOL, bro. That’s adorable.


Dubstep | DJ Fresh – Exhale (Nostalgia Bootleg)

Posted by on March 22, 2012

Thank God for angry musicians, just the other day Rusko went off about how pissed he was at Mad Decent and how he plans to give his new album out for free because of it. Nostalgia leaked out this gem since DJ Fresh dropped it from the ‘Exhale’ release. This track is filthy, leave it to DJ Fresh to screw up an amazing release. Nostalgia turned this into a monster. Like Alvin Risk, Nostalgia is just another nerd with glasses…who likes to make your ears orgasm.
