BEST OF BRITISH 2013: THE NOMINEES

Cast your vote here!

In the wake of the hype and hysteria following the global behemoth that is the Top 100 DJs poll, the time has come to — once again — shine the spotlight on the UK underground.

Best of British — now in its sixth year — is your chance to pay homage to the homegrown DJs, artists, clubs, record labels and festivals that make the UK one of the most exciting scenes on the planet.

This year, however, it's with a twist. After seeing the likes of Breach, Disclosure and Duke Dumont crossover to reach mainstream success in 2013, this year's poll is also a chance to highlight those industry players taking it next level, but still staying true to the underground.

Browse our nominations below, and cast your vote at the bottom of the page to give these homegrown heroes the kudos they deserve!
