DJ Mag names the year’s top DJ

DJ Mag names the year’s top DJ
Every year DJ Mag present a list of the Top 100 DJs in the World, and last year Martin Garrix became the youngest ever winner. The question is, did the young fella have staying power or was it a blip? The World’s Best DJ has now been announced and…
…Garrix holds onto to his title to become 2016 and 2017 number one. While accepting the prize, Garrix gave the kind of speech we’d like to see more of ““I’m feeling emotional, I’m feeling happy. I’m feeling fucking thankful for all your support since day one.” Yep.
So here’s what DJ Mag say about it all: “Last year, Martin Garrix made history when he became the youngest ever winner of the Top 100 DJs poll… Having rapidly climbed the chart over the past few years, he pipped legendary winners such as Tiësto, Armin van Buuren and Hardwell to the top spot, and knocked Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike off the throne. At the time there was a feeling that 2016 wouldn’t be the last time the young Dutchman claimed the title — there was a buzz about him that nobody else could really match, an ability to traverse the line between dance music and pop that nobody else could achieve quite as well — and now, a year on, he’s proved that hunch correct. Martin Garrix is still the world’s number one DJ.”
