Hardwell & Dannic Speak Out Against Top100 Voting
With the DJ Mag Top100 around the corner, and DJ/Producers pursuing or the coveted placings, it’s easy to understand why some are using ‘alternative’ methods to gain popularity and votes. However, it seems not all DJ’s in the running are buying the attention-grabbing voting schemes.
With promo teams circulating the festival circuit and covering the fan-filled streets, some DJ’s are making it almost too easy to vote. A process where you’re given a name, over a chance to really mull it over. Contrary to the likes of Flux Pavillion, who hasn’t even voted for himself this year, rather opted to promote those he believes have influenced the scene the most.
With the current reigning No.1 DJ, Hardwell taking a negative view to the promotion method, along with fellow Dutch heavy-weight and friend Dannic, there’s clearly some tension brewing over the rankings and their validity. Seeing the voting process as a means to portray the best music’s creators, Hardwell & Dannic certainly carry a tone of displeasure at their fellow producers methods to climb up the Top100.
DJ’s with iPad promo teams begging for dj mag votes in the streets, really? Let the music do the talking!
