THE DJ MAG TOP 100 DJ’S [REVIEW]

THE DJ MAG TOP 100 DJ’S OF 2016. WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN?

A few weeks ago, DJ Mag released the ever anticipating list, Top 100 DJ’s in the world.

Many artists were perplexed as to what the list meant [in all its fame & glory]. There are many unanswered questions in regards to its purpose and we’re here today to answer that.

Artists like Hardwell took to the stage to express their thoughts and opinions.

“This guy doesn’t get a chance to play the big festivals,” he says. “He doesn’t get the chance, so he’s never gonna be on the f—ing list…”

– Hardwell

Dillon Francis is among some of the DJ’s who took to shows and social media to lash out at the mockery of “The DJ List” [Billboard Article seen here].

The team here at The DJ’s Tribune broke it down and formed our own opinion as to what it meant and why DJ Mag has a list in the first place.

“The Top 100 DJ’s List is mainly based on an artists’ business model and majority income for that particular year. It is also designed to congratulate the Top 100 artists’ who’ve poured their blood, sweat, and tears into the creation and contribution toward the electronic dance music industry.” 

– The DJ’s Tribune

Whether it’s ticket sales, track and album sales, or popularity on social media, the list is a combination of the overall quality and appearance of the DJ’s brand image. Yes. Popularity is a large part of the decision making process, but not the most important.

Basically, what is your total revenue from all music you release and perform that year? And, how popular are you on social media? But, is that it…?

Whatever the case may be, we’d like to congratulate Martin Garrix on his No. 1 spot as DJ Mag’s Best DJ of 2016. Keep up the great work man!

BILLBOARD TOP 15 ‘ARTISTS TO WATCH’ [REVIEW]

BILLBOARD TOP 15 ‘ARTISTS TO WATCH’ RECAP AND 2016 MOST DEVELOPED DJ OF THE YEAR

The DJ’s Tribune found an old article that was worth another look; ‘Billboards Top 15 Artists to Watch’, which was released at the beginning of 2016.  Let’s take a deep listen to some of their predictions.

Today, we examine how these artists sit now that we’re well into fall and approaching 2017. The multitude of blogs, streaming services, and music platforms makes it difficult for record labels and fans to spot some of these rising stars in the Electronic Dance Music industry.

Artists like KSHMR continue to “break the internet”, while labels find it hard to stick with their email submissions and instead, go on the offense to sign the right candidates by scowwering music platforms.

Billboard‘s January article featured a slew of DJ’s and artists from across all parts of the world. We decided to condense their list into the one(s) who have developed the most with their careers this year. Our fall 2016 ‘Artist to Watch’ is . . . .
