    Resident Advisor Poll for 2013 rated Seth Troxler as the #1 DJ. I've never heard him live, but I trust RA polls over DJ Mag polls any day. I'm planning to catch his set, Jamie Jones and Disclosure.

    Why? Like DJ Mag, it's just a different segment of dance music fans jizzing all over the current act du jour. Not saying Troxler isn't a fine DJ, but it's not as if the RA poll was some calculated, calibrated ranking of skill and track selection.

    As much of a resident troll as you are, guedita (trust me, I respect it), I know you know your shit about electronic music and care about it deeply. Which DJs are you looking forward to most this year?

    IMO DJ Mag Poll is popularity contest, and the readership is on a much broader commercial tip. RA is much more dance music community oriented, frequented by other DJs, artists, producers, promoters and people tuned into the forward thinking trends. I'm actually relieved that this year's line up isn't riddled with DJ Mag top 10 lookers (except Hardwell). This year's dance music acts will be WELL represented by some REAL talent...

    The RA poll is no less a popularity contest than the DJ mag poll.

    Also, the core commentariat at RA, including the lion's share of the editorial staff, really don't like the whole hot creations, visionquest k-hole house sound.

    Jamie Jones is the DJ I'm looking forward to the most but DJ Harvey, Seth Troxler, Jamie xx, Thugfucker and The 2 Bears (if DJing) should all be great.

    the must see "djs" and best "djs" are a little different considering i have seen half the lineup. the list is my opinion only, so i recommend listening to as much live sets as possible. records and a live/dj set are sometimes really different. here is bittorrent site for live electronic music. have fun. http://themixingbowl.org/

    paul kalkbrenner
    seth troxler
    dj pierre(the only confirmed beer dome dj i have heard of thus far)

    If you want to enjoy a bass heavy crazy party-type DJ then you should see Diplo (as Major Lazer) and Bassnectar

    For experimental looping and fx with smooth, innovative mixing you want to see Richie Hawtin.

    If you want to experience a live-ish band making the craziest bass music imaginable you want to see Dirtyphonics.

    If you want the kids these days to think you are hip you want to see TNGHT

    If you want the indie kids to think you are informed about electronic music you want to see Maya Jane Coles and Booka Shade

    If you are into 4 person turntablist (scratching, looping, etc.) teams you want to see C2C and Birdy Nam Nam

    And if you like the xx you should see Jamie xx

    Hawtin would probably be #1 for me, followed by Luciano and Jamie Jones.

    Disclosure and TNGHT should be rocking it as well.

    3ballmty also have some slick dj mixes as well, so they might be worth checking out

    Can we talk about how idiotic this thread is? Music is subjective. What parameters would you use to qualify any one "dj" as being "the best?" Thagorillaz post is on point. Find out what you like and explore different artists that have that kind of sound. Yes, english is clearly not OP's first language, but come on dude.

    It's so hard to decide, but Knife Party is up there. Saw them at BFD, they mixed everything from Swedish House Mafia to Beastie Boys. Probably followed by Moby and Major Lazer. Maybe Dog Blood and Kill The Noise.
