House Music Takes the Throne

 

2011 DJ Mag Top 100 poll resultsWe told you about the emerging trends to watch for:

Trance vs. House
&
New Genres

The days of trance as the most popular genre of dance music are over.

House music’s 2009 foray into the mainstream, spearheaded by David Guetta’s ‘One Love’ album, has been solidified by artists like Avicii, Afrojack and Swedish House Mafia.

Tiesto’s decision to decentralize himself from any one genre has allowed him to reach more fans and grow as an artist, but at the expense of a once wildly popular genre.
 

Highlights of the Poll:

 

1. David Guetta – He brought house to the US mainstream and is now #1.
 
2. Armin van Buuren – After 4 years at #1 his reign has ended – barely but still…
 
6. Avicii – Entered the poll in 2010 at #39. Now he’s in the top 10! It’s Avicii BROOOO!!!
 

Speaking of Armin & Avcii ————->—————>————–>

 
 
7. Afrojack – Made huge waves in 2011 working with Pit Bull, Lil’ Wayne and Paris Hilton
 
10. Swedish House Mafia – The group sells out MSG and cracks the top 10 as a whole
 
11. Paul van Dyk – First time in 13 years he has been lower than #6
 
18. Ferry Corsten – Just goes to show the new trend in EDM. Still one of the best, as far as we’re concerned.
 
19. Skrillex – The highest new entry of 2011. There’s that glitch/dubstep
 
24. Hardwell – The young Dutchman cracks the top 100
 
25. Arty – The Russian trance prodigy jumps 53 places!
 
42. Steve Aoki – Stage diving his way into the top 100! The man is one of the best performers we’ve seen!
 
49. Orjan Nilsen – Trance guys still jumping in!!!
 
70. Alesso – The young Swede enters high, will def finish low.
 
88. Nero – Dubstep in the house!
 
90. Boy George – LOL!!!

    Don’t be laughing at Boy George. I heard him spin several years ago and it was the BEST house set I had ever heard!
