Sometimes it's hard to know if an artist's 'people' are making the decisions on their behalf, or if they choose for themselves to keep a distance from their fans. In either case it's an outdated approach for an interconnected world in which communication of all types is more vital to an artist than ever before.

Whoever is responsible for making the choice here, the upshot is that Galantis have declined DJ Mag's invitation to answer our questions or talk to us about their inclusion in this year's Top 100 DJs Poll.

Christian Karlsson (from Miike Snow) and Linus Eklöw (Style Of Eye) have between them worked with the likes of Madonna, Britney Spears, Kylie Minogue, Katy Perry and Icona Pop and created massively successful international chart pop hits.

So as the duo Galantis you wouldn't exactly expect them to be at the cutting edge of any underground movement, or maybe even be that bothered about featuring in a Top 100 rundown where they find themselves rubbing shoulders with the world's greatest DJs.

Still, there are plenty of dance fans who like the duo enough to have taken the time and effort to vote for them in this year's Top 100 DJs Poll. Sadly, although most of the biggest, best and most successful personalities in the global dance scene take the opportunity to thank their fans for voting for them, we'll never know what Galantis themselves think of it all.
