I like polls. I like voting. I also like DJs.
These are my top 5:
Julietta never lets me down. I haven't seen her in years but her sets just get better and better.
Barac encapsulates the sound that I am most into right now, that hypnotic, Romanian minimal sound that is really growing. His productions are amazing and his DJ sets - triptastic.
It should be no surprise that Craig Richards features as he does every year. Utterly reliable and utterly underground.
Sonja Moonear keeps impressing - I have seen her a couple of times this year, one minimal and one techno set. Both thoroughly excellent.
Finally, Dana Ruh was the highlight at Cocoon in Ibiza for me, such well-constructed sets.
No Ricardo. Well, he couldn't be bothered to turn up the one time I tried to go see him. First time I have not voted him in a DJ poll since I discovered who he was.
At some point I shall release my top 500 DJs list. Yeah, I have a spreadsheet.
