Historically there has always been strong Dutch representation in the Top 100 DJs poll, and this year is no exception. It should surprise no-one to see Mike Williams amongst the contingent of Netherlands-based DJs in the chart: after all, 2020 marks the Spinnin' Records regular’s fourth successive year in the Top 100. Given that his popularity has traditionally been built on a tireless touring schedule, this is a significant achievement.

Unlike many other DJs in our poll, Williams has already returned to touring. After quarantining in Taiwan for two weeks in September, he was allowed to perform a quartet of sell-out shows at some of the country’s biggest venues.

Up until that point, the jocular Dutchman had devoted much of his time this year to studio work. The result was a trio of hugely popular singles: Curbi collaboration ‘Take Me There’, ‘Make You Mine’, with Moa Lisa, and the recently released Justin Mylo joint production, ‘Face Up To The Sun’. He also found time to remix Tiësto’s ‘Blue’, a rework that has so far notched up around 400,000 plays on YouTube alone.
