Choosing the best club music artist is mostly a battle of tastes. There are many areas that are fundamentally different from each other. However, general ratings are compiled annually, which include the best DJs. Let's find out who is now the leader of this list in Russia and in the world.

By what criteria are the best DJs chosen

There are several ways to be among the best. In most cases, ratings are based on the number of listeners and fans. You can call it a popular vote. However, it cannot be said that such a rating is objective, because people listen to those who often speak and have the opportunity to rotate on the radio.

It is customary in the world to select DJs in the lists of the best in terms of fees. Russia cannot yet compete with European and American club performers, as their fees are measured in hundreds of thousands of dollars.

The most truthful rating of DJs is when the performers choose the best of their colleagues on their own. Everything is taken into account here: from the playing style to the use of unbanal sound combinations. SuchThe lists often list up-and-coming artists who have every chance of becoming famous throughout the country.

Who will be ranked soon?

While the venerable Russian DJs retire or move to Europe,young and promising performers appear in domestic show business. They are not afraid to experiment with sound and record interesting tracks.

Perhaps he is not yet as widely known as Rudenko, but many European stations have already included his tracks in the rotation lists.

The Swanky Tunes quartet from Saratov has earned popularity due to its playing technique. The participants of this project set a real record - a remix for the song "Spring" (performer "Dolphin") was included in the rotation on all radio stations of popular music in Russia. Later remixes set download records. Swanky Tunes are the best DJs in the country according to professionals. The quartet received recognition from other DJs, which is extremely important.

Why do not everyone agree with the ratings

The ratings given by us may not please everyone. There is no need to argue about tastes. Among the world and domestic stars of the club scene there are many talented people. Everyone will be able to find the artist that will appeal to him. Some create only their own tracks, while others prefer to do remixes. Almost any track can find its listener.

Many people may not agree with the lists of the best because of the love for a certain musical style. After the heyday of club culture, a huge number of directions appeared in it. If earlier any electronic music was called "techno", now a person who is far from club life can get confused in styles. Despite some subjectivity, lists of the best musicians are compiled with enviable frequency.
