Paul van Dyk Wins Top 100

Paul van Dyk has won DJmag's Top 100 DJs Poll 2006, for the second time in a row. The trance megastar played a mammoth set at Fabric after claiming his award.

There couldn't be a No.1 without a No.100," are Paul van Dyk's typically genial words on re-claiming his crown for the second year on the spin.

"If I was the only one doing this then no-one would give a flying fuck for me. Everyone playing electronic music is breaking the ground for the scene as a whole - we all play what we love, we all help build this together."

PvD claimed his crown for the second time at Fabric in London on Wednesday night, at a star-studded bash.

Great Honour

On stage Paul dedicated his Top 100 award to everybody involved in dance music.

He said: "To be voted No.1 last year was a great honour, and to win it for a second time is very special.

"I'd like to dedicate the award to all those involved in electronic music who make and play the records we love.

"The amount of votes in this year's Poll is testament to the continuing strength of our scene, and that in difficult global times, our culture stands as a positive force in uniting people from different cultural backgrounds through music."

PvD then went on to play a rocking set at Fabric, which was the first time the DJ has played at the world famous club.
