Don Diablo is The World’s No. 1 Future House DJ in DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJs poll 2022, appearing in the top 10 this year at No. 9.
The Dutch DJ and producer has had a busy year by anyone’s standards. He was hugely productive in the studio, experimenting with new sounds, writing new hooks, working on new harmonies and finding ways to take the so-called future house sound to new heights. He also reached the milestone of 400 episodes of his Hexagon Radio show, which has now clocked up over 40 million downloads to date, and will spawn a new clothing collection in 2023, including a very special collaboration with his favourite Netflix show.
After years of pushing the future house sound forward, it has now become familiar to a global audience, with elements of it crossing over into other genres. “It has matured and will continue to evolve,” he reckons. “My aim will always be to challenge myself and to keep re-inventing the sound, whilst safeguarding my own signature production style.”
1.3 million votes were counted from 243 countries in this year’s Top 100 DJs poll. Among the smaller territories who participated, we received votes from St Kitts & Nevis, Djibouti, Micronesia, Isle of Man, Palau, the Falkland Islands, Marshall Islands, Nauru, Tuvalu, Montserrat, and even a vote from the Vatican City, demonstrating the truly global reach of the Top 100 DJs poll.
