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.

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.
