Unsurprisingly, DJs are really mad at the results of the DJ Mag 100

Over the weekend, DJ Mag named their Top 100 DJs of 2017, and — as per usual — the results have people divided.

Dutch wunderkind Martin Garrix took out the top spot for the second year running, with mainstage stars like Armin van Buuren and Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike rounding out the top three.

As usual, the poll offered a few questionable moments: Porter Robinson only just scraped in at #96, Flume landed at #87 despite the fact he prefers to play live over DJing, and revered selectors like Nina Kraviz and Tiga failed to make the cut at all.

Since the results were revealed, a stack of DJs and producers have voiced their disdain for the poll over social media, even artists that were included in the ranking. Mad Decent head Diplo came in a #25, but he didn’t seem to care that much, tweeting: “only 75 spots til I’m finally off this list let’s go further next year.”
