America's "Best" DJ Is Markus Schulz

Posted by on Mon, Sep 17, 2012 at 11:59 AM

Here are the results of America's Best DJ poll. The winner is... Markus Schulz, who seems as bland and indistinguishable from dozens of other short-haired, smooth-faced white guys making the mega-club circuit. Nobody should be surprised that this top-10 list is largely filled with jocks who play middling music to move huge crowds of people with mediocre tastes—although at one point in the not-so-distant past I'd actually be excited to catch sets by Diplo and A-Trak. Anyway, here you go, America: These are your top 10 DJs, according to people who think popularity equals quality.

2012 AMERICA’S BEST DJ FINAL RESULTS
1. MARKUS SCHULZ
2. STEVE AOKI
3. SKRILLEX
4. BT
5. Z-Trip
6. Porter Robinson
7. Wolfgang Gartner
8. A-Trak
9. Diplo
10. Bassnectar

At least Pauly D didn't make the cut.

And of course they are all guys it seems. Sad.

The quality of a DJ is a simple function of the number of hot women on the floor dancing their asses off to his music.

Huh, okay, seandr. Intentional/ironic sexism is hilarious, right?

Seriously? Z-Trip and Markus Schulz and Bassnectar are indistinguishable? Research before you write.
