Resident Advisor’s Best DJs of 2014: Dixon, Tale Of Us, and Âme

Another year of voting is complete on the incredibly strict Resident Advisor DJs-of-the-year poll, which famously acts as a more underground response to DJ Mag’s overblown “Top 100 DJs” list released every year (whose top three this year included Hardwell, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, and Armin Van Buuren).

The voting on RA’s poll is limited to a window of just three days – which this year landed on some of the busiest days of the year for those of us living in the United States – November 25th – 28th. You have to have been a member of the site prior to the voting period, in an attempt to quell any attempts to cheat by creating fake accounts and votes.

Here’s RA’s Top 10:

  1. Dixon (second year at #1 slot)
  2. Tale Of Us (second year at #2 slot)
  3. Âme
  4. Seth Troxler
  5. Maceo Plex
  6. Ben Klock
  7. Ben UFO
  8. Mano Le Tough
  9. Rødhåd
  10. Ricardo Villalobos

The poll (and RA’s site) always swings more heavily-oriented towards European artists and genres – and this lineup is no exception. Who do you think deserved to be in the top 10 who missed out? Let us know in the comments.

      which is ironic, considering this is the “official” response to the stagnant DJ Mag poll… how can something remain fresh and vital when it doesn’t really change?
