Who Are The World's Best DJs?

Yall. I read at the Daily Swarm that some magazine called "DJ Magazine" came out with their top 100 DJs of 2k8. While I am not a big electroHouseDisco Music buff, I feel like I should know more people on this list.


I just don't understand why my BlogCentric view of electro music didn't make a bigger splash on this list. Does most of the world listen to guido+eurotrashCore 'techno' music? Am I an unEducated electroFan? Does the music that I listen to 'not matter' in the context of 'authentic electronic' music?

I have made the bloghouse/mainstreamLectro bands that appeal to me GREEN.
Everything is that is guidoCore/electronica/technoh0use/authentic techno is RED.

Please feel free to let me know how you feel about this list. I just want yalls input.
Who are blogville's most relevant DJs? Which DJs probably cost the most?
Are u tired of all of the guidoHouseTechno DJs getting all of the attention? (Are they more authentic than bloggy electro DJs who have capitalized on the entrylevel alt population growth spurt?)

But SRSLY, doesn't it piss u off when ur local DJ seems like he'd rather be any where else than playing at your local ElectroParty?
