Desyn Masiello holds the No.70 slot in our poll for the second year running, but he's quick to big-up the other DJs in is SOS collective, namely Omid 16B and Demi.

Clearly, life has moved on for Desyn since a brush with death last year forced him to take a step back from his DJing for a while. But that hasn't lessened his voting power. He is much loved and respected both within the dance world and by some of the most famous DJs in it.

Desyn's ability to bend a set and coax a crowd into wild abandon and near hysteria is perhaps due to his spiritual outlook on life.
"I'm focusing on what can be done when a group of people lovingly get together and share knowledge, music and skills (SOS), and I'm working on a number of collaborative mix compilations due out early 2008," he tells DJmag.
