    Any and every poll that does this is dumb as hell, and I bet everybody on that list would agree...except for maybe Tiesto and Paul Oakenfold

    Danny Tenaglia should be on this list. Probably top 10 too.

    I'd also ask for Adam Freeland too.

    And what about Luke Vibert, Squarepusher, and Aphex?

    asking a question like this is stupid as fuck, there are so many factors here. it's like saying "greatest food of all time" and hoping for an actual answer

    that said I'm voting for Tiesto

    Adam Freeland should be on there without a doubt, his mixing has been flawless on any set i've heard live or recorded. His essential mix is still the best one i've heard, and is pretty much perfection.

    I used to travel to see Tenaglia, but in the last few years he's turned into yet another Boredom House practitioner.

    The poll is silly, but that list is actually quite informative. There were a few names that I had never heard of and now I'm a little more learned on the history of turntablism.
