With dance music’s ever-increasing popularity across East Asia, votes for artists from across the region continue to pour in thick and fast. And as a result, we’re happy to welcome China’s ChengLong (Leon) Zhou, aka DJ L, who makes his first appearance in the Top 100 DJs poll this year. 2017 has seen DJ L release a slew of new music, including ‘Kraken’ with AvAlance & Flash Finger, ‘Pow Pow’, and his collab with AVYANNA ‘Follow Me (MYST Version)’ — with the latter two dropping via major label, Sony Music.
