I know what they use, I saw them spin "up close" before you probably even knew of their existence. They won't be playing a DJ set at Coachella.

you didn't mention a-trak.. he would easily run circles around everyone on your list... basically everyone on your list is a button pusher and plays the CDJ's.. Fat Boy is probably the only one who still plays / mixes vinyl, but not like a-trak..

worst fukin poll ever. you're a moron who obviously has absolutely no appreciation or understanding of electronic music. you don't know shit. that's why i'm really afraid that the sahara will suck this year, not because of the music but because of idiots like you inside the tent.

01-23-2008, 04:01 PM
Depends on your definition of best dj. best track selection? best production? best mixing ability? I've seen every dj on the list except Pendelum. Although i dont like prog trance. S&D are the best djs as far as mixing. Fatboy is the best performer. Uffie shouldnt even be in this poll cause she is horrible. Im a better dj than her. Diplo should be included in the poll. On a good day when he's not doing too much baile funk heavy set and more hip hop he is awesome.

I dont understand what all the excitement about the dance/electronic lineup is all about.

There are only a few great acts:

Fatboy Slim
Tenaglia
Adam Freeland
Sasha and Digweed
Justice
Kraftwerk

That would be an awesome lineup for ONE DAY... but they are spread out through the weekend.

best dj on this list by far fatboy slim, followed by sasha n digweed, and justice are the worst dj they just have good dope tracks, uffie should not be on the list.
thank you

You totally left James Zabiela off this poll. I've seen him, Sash and Digweed, and Junkie XL live, and it is no contest. Zabiela puts on a hell of a show.

Tijuana
01-23-2008, 06:25 PM
They put him so low on the list that I did not see his name.

#2 right after Fatboy Slim

I know they play live (though they do dj sets sometimes - check out their ESSENTIAL MIX from DEC. 29 07 it is amazing) but they are definitely the most intense, craziest, dancing in the air electro band at coachella. Plus Kraftwerk and Justice and Fatboy will all probably be doing live sets (ie. sequencers and drum machines etc) rather than dj sets (turntables and a mixer) so I don't see why they shouldn't count just cuz they throw in some guitars and bongo drums as well.

THERE IS NO WAY TO DESCRIBE THE INTENSITY OF THIS SHOW, it was NOTHING like their album, just a crazy intense set with no breaks of steady beats and insane dancing. all who saw them last year know what I mean, definitely not to be missed.

01-23-2008, 08:38 PM
If by 'best dj' you mean the dj who has good skills, regardless of the music he/she plays, I probably would go with James Zabiela.

Pendulum used to do awesome dj sets, good track selection and the guys knew what they were doing. Last time I saw them was 2-3 years ago, so I have no idea if they have improved it. This year they will be doing a live act, though, so don't miss them.

Erol Alkan is my personal favorite, hopefully he stays on the line up this year.

I'm not really much of a fan of zabiela's music, but you're right. As far as skills go zabiela one of the tops on that list.


The fact that people are voting for Justice proves how pointless it is to carry on discussions about DJ's here. Justice don't even really DJ anymore from what I understand. They weren't all that great at it when they did.

If their failed fabric mix says anything about their skills then they are fucking horrible.

Is there some confusion about what "electro" is? I'm assuming that they're just using it as a shortened term for "electronic" however electro (i.e electro house) is a genre that none of those dj's/artists fall under.

Anyways, my vote for best electronic act playing this year would be Booka Shade. They put on an incredible live performance, much more energetic and dance-friendly than some of their recorded material.

I find that everyone this year has such a huge hard on for Justice. Justice this and Justice that. Justice is great, but their album does not compare with other artists...and their skills, nothing close to Kraftwerk/Fatboy Slim...I think people are going through a Justice Rules All phase right now.

I agree about the over use of Justice name by people that think they alone dominate the electro sound...People like to name drop them but come on, boys noize, ed banger boys, check out some kitsune records compilations too. there are a lot of electro acts out there that are just as good.

as far as their album not comparing to other artists...thats a vague statement not really sure what that means but they are good artists, fatboy is too commercial, i mean gangsta tripn? Come on. As far as skills Id say for the short time theyve been around theyve jumped a few levels.

Actually, Uffie is "uffing" Feadz, not BusyP, who is a really good house DJ, even on vinyl, though Uffie is a hack. Pretty much all of ed banger uses Cd-J's, except for Feadz (occasionally) and Dj Mehdi (occasionally), and Justice are good dj's but no where near Boys Noise, E.R.O.L, Surkin and Para One, plus I heard they are doing their next tour (leading up to Coachella) with ableton ala Daft Punk... This poll is interesting though...And yes I am a French House whore...Vive SebastiAn et Kavinsky!!!!
