not that the DJ mag top 100 poll means anything, but i'm fairly confident that goldenvoice won't book anybody who gets exposed for cheating on it. Either way it'll be entertaining

"By looking at the back end of the voting system, it's easy to spot who has been cheating. We are currently investigating a number of DJs with a succession of fraudulent votes, and will be making an announcement on this in due course.
There are a number of DJs that have been caught cheating, and DJ Mag will be naming and shaming them by the end of this week."

Goldenvoice: Ethically not booking DJs who have cheated at the DJ MAG TOP 100 Poll since 1999.

I love that Daft Punk is always on this list each year. In spite of, you know, not DJing anything.

You mean I still won't get to see Deepchord presents Echospace and Demdike Stare at Coachella? :( :(

I thought that just meant they had to play in the Playstation™ Shame Octagon, where the DJs have play from within one of those game show enclosed tubes where air blows money everywhere, except in this case it's their records from which they'll be choosing being flung all around them.

I'm just happy that at most there'll be at most one or two repeats of the trash heap that was last year. We'll probably have to deal with skrillex and god knows who else tho

An uninformed person might (wrongly) assume that these DJ Mag people take themselves a little too seriously.

I highly doubt there will be any big names. If it was a big name, I think it would be more likely that fans were cheating for the DJ without him knowing. I don't know how they would try to prove that the DJ himself was cheating on purpose.

You guys do realize that this poll was conducted through Facebook, right? The same Facebook that recently divulged that nearly 10% (83 million) of their accounts are fraudulent? If they really want to find out who the most popular DJ in the world is they should have fans mail in a severed finger along with their hand written ballot. Otherwise people will "cheat." There is no honor on the internet, especially when Teisto's throne is at stake.
