Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike have been voted the The World’s No. 1 DJ group in DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJs 2023.
This year marks also marks a decade-long reign in the top five of the Top 100 DJs poll for the Belgian-Greek duo, who have also evolved and changed up their sound this year, tapping back into their roots in early rave sounds, gabber, and techno, with the full support of their fans. “We’ve been digging into the sounds that made us fall in love with electronic music in the first place,” Dimitri told DJ Mag, “it’s refreshing to see all barriers have clearly been broken. It’s been fun pushing the envelope this festival season.”
Frenetic festival energy and the chaos of club stages have dominated the last 12 months for DVLM, who recently finished up their summer residency with Tomorrowland at Ibiza’s Ushuaïa, taking over the open-air club every Wednesday from June through September, joined by the likes of Alok, Lost Frequencies, MATTN, Timmy Trumpet and Yves V. Creamfields, Tomorrowland, Germany’s Open Beatz and Medusa Festival in Spain have also been privy to the new and improved DVLM sound this year. It's been received with open arms. “We’ve experienced a lot of crazy energy at so many big festivals, especially Tomorrowland — this summer was a constant high” said Mike.
The awards were announced during a broadcast event, hosted by BBC Radio One’s Arielle Free from The Standard, Ibiza. The show featured an iconic David Guetta performance from an Ibiza cliff top, alongside sets from four leading DJs from unique locations that spanned five continents.
