It seems as though those DJs who are actively using new media to garner votes are at a big advantage, the Top 100 is sprinkled with a few odd names amongst established DJs. The era of getting in the chart via extensive gigging are numbered, with a DJ more likely to chart highly if he/she produces literally anything remotely tuneful.

The lack of DJs playing non four to the floor music is worrying- especially when you consider how dubstep has emerged as a genre in the last twelve months. You have to go all the way down to No. 61 to find the first non trance/house/techno DJ Andy C. Unless David Guetta has changed his style from “house” to Mongolian breaks recently.

If you wish to increase your chances of getting into the chart you must consider changing a) your style of music to trance or b) your name to something Dutch sounding. The chart nowadays is nothing more than a bit of harmless fun (if lucrative monetarily) which DJ Magazine publishes to keep their profile high throughout the year.
