In terms of Djing, not producing, i would say i really like Hardwell and Laidback Luke, outside the EDM world i would go to Jazzy Jeff, what a turntablist! Saw a set and some videos of him and i became a fan instantly.
    Pretty much

    Kids these days, SMH! Some software and a sync button does not make you a Dj! Mixing and scratchin, knowing how to read a crowd a rock a party, song selection...that MAKES you a Dj. Lets be real, hip hop birthed the Dj, if you dot recognize jazzy Jeff as one of the greats, you don't know jack bout dj'n period! If you never bought a mixtape that was actually recorded on a cassette tape, you may not be qualified to say what a Dj is. If you ever saw Big Ace (RIP) tower of a set of 1's&2's and keep the dance floor packed the entire night, you may have never seen a "good" Dj in action. Guys like Jam Pony Express was doing the EDM style of sampling, producing, mixing, scratchin, regulating (mc'n) long before half these EDM guys were born. And printing stuff to tape. Now you got microwave DJ's with Traktor that don't even wanna take the time to actually Dj, they wanna drag and drop a bunch of songs and hit export, wishing that the software would make a mix for them. Lazy bastards!

Thats the reasen why on DJmag top100 there are only famous producers. Everyone can be a good Dj
    I respectfully disagree with you. If you are a dj and you are not from New jersey and I put you in a club in newark, you will have no clue how to handle a jersey crowd. They are two different arts. You only say producer because you probably only see what is on youtube of slow tech house in boiler room sets with people only 2 stepping. That is not what a club vibe is really like.

    Or if you are in New York, you have to know that 35 and older people go to clubs and many are latin and like to hear old school house, freestyle, old school hip hop, as well as the new stuff. I f you don't know how to read the crowd and see that the crowd is older and can't tap into their memories, then yes, you are not a good dj. Dj is not only technical. You think it is only because that is what you see now because clubs have couches where people ares suppose to dance.

    There's a HUGE difference between a 1 year DJ and a 3 year DJ, unless of course you're talking about people who hit the "sync" button on their controller and only play beatport top 100 tracks. Give 2 DJs 20 tracks and they will mix/blend/scratch the entire set differently. There's no formula for DJing, it's an art. And anyone serious about Djing knows that DJmag is a joke of a list.

    Oh and for your "creative" producers, check this out: https://soundcloud.com/daleri/epic-mashleg All songs were taken from the beatport top 100 that you seem to worship.

    Sorry for the rant, but when someone calls out DJs as only being able to transition and throw in some effects, I take offense.
    Boom! Preach on brother, preach on!

    Because it will ultimately morph into a discussion and debate as to whether or not the name posted merits recognition. it is not as simple..

    There a club djs
    battle djs
    mobile djs
    social djs

    He wasn't specific in his question. A scratch battle dj doesn't necessarily translate to being a good nightclub dj.
