30 years of Top 100 DJs explored in new documentary: Watch

A new documentary exploring 30 years of the DJ Mag Top 100 DJs poll has been announced today. You can watch the trailer for it below.

The DJ Mag Original documentary, Top 100 DJs: The World’s Biggest Music Poll, premieres exclusively on YouTube on Wednesday 31st January.

Directed by DJ Mag’s Liam Smith, the documentary features interviews with artists that have been central to the Top 100 DJs poll during its 30-year history. These include Carl Cox, Smokin Jo, David Guetta, Martin Garrix, Charlotte de Witte, Steve Aoki, Armin van Buuren, DJ Paulette, David Morales, Fatboy Slim, Arielle Free, ALOK, Sonique, Don Diablo, Hardwell, Sister Bliss, Sarah Story, Paul van Dyk, John Digweed, Mariana BO and many more.

Speaking about Top 100 DJs: The World’s Biggest Music Poll, DJ Mag’s senior producer, Smith, said, “Although the project started as a way of celebrating the Top 100 DJs’ 30th anniversary, it quickly became an insight into dance music history, looking into how electronic music has evolved over the last three decades alongside the poll.”

DJ Mag’s operations director, Simon Kelly, added, “Since evolving from an editorially curated list to celebrate the 100th edition DJ Mag, Top 100 DJs has grown exponentially over three decades and now acts as a definitive global snapshot of the popularity of DJs worldwide.

“To mark the 30th anniversary of Top 100 DJs, we wanted to capture this trajectory — in an honest and open way — alongside the sounds, scenes and artists the poll has reflected along the way. The team have worked tirelessly to bring this — our first long-form DJ Mag Original documentary — to fruition and we’re incredibly excited to put this out into the world.”
