For the past couple of years DJ Mag has used Top 100 DJs data to calculate and reflect the international popularity of DJs from the house and techno scenes.
With the continuing dominance of EDM, these genres have been on the periphery of the global poll in recent years, despite commanding huge audiences worldwide.
What can you say about Carl Cox? A titan of the worldwide electronic music scene, he’s a global ambassador whose effervescence and joie de vivre behind the decks is absolutely infectious.
This artist from Durban, South Africa, has become the country’s most globally celebrated electronic musician, playing to capacity crowds at enormous stadiums, DJing everywhere from underground institutions such as Panorama Bar in Berlin to gigantic festivals like Ultra in Miami, and working with R&B megastars Drake and Alicia Keys.
Steve Lawler is a true stalwart of the UK club scene. In what is approaching three decades of dedication, the Birmingham-born DJ/producer has done it all – from early days of throwing infamous raves under the M42 to being crowned the ‘King of Space’ during his nine-year residency at the legendary Ibiza club.
Resistance Ibiza has revealed the first details for its summer 2019 season. Taking place every Tuesday night from 23rd July to 17th September, the beloved party is returning to Privilege for what is set to be an unforgettable series.
So far, Carl Cox – Resistance’s global ambassador – and Adam Beyer are the only names that have been locked for the season. Following the pair’s unforgettable b2b at Junction 2 festival earlier this year, we can only hope to experience something similar at Privilege, but no matter what the set up is, it’s going to be wild.
Eric Prydz, AKA Cirez D, and Adam Beyer have confirmed more b2b sets for 2019.
After playing several dates together this year the respected bosses of Pryda and Drumcode are now setting sights on the coming 12 months according to a post on Twitter.
Thanx for 4 incredible shows. We tried to bring a different set each time and i think it worked. We will be back with more next year.
