The votes are in!

Every year DJ Magazine collects thousands and thousands of votes in determining the worlds #1 DJ. The poll is the most respected in the DJ community because the poll collects the most worldwide votes. Votes from over 190 countries has found this year's top DJ in the world. Who is it? Hardwell!

Hardwell has become an international dance music icon in the few years he's been playing massive festivals like Ultra Music Festival and Tomorrowland. My friends and I have watched hours of his live performances on Youtube in my beat lab. We're slightly nuts. His Dutch electro-house sound has earned him over two million 'likes' on Facebook and over 900,000 followers on Twitter.

In 2010 he launched his own record label called Revealed Recordings. From the label, Hardwell has introduced the world to up and coming DJs like Dannic (#74 DJ in the world), Dyro (#30 DJ in the world) and W&W (#14 DJ in the world).
