Armin van Buuren Nabs #1 Spot in DJ Mag Top 100 DJs Poll, Full List of 2012 Winners Announced

Move over David Guetta, there’s a new number one DJ in town.  Votes are in from over 170 countries and Dutch DJ/producer Armin van Buuren has regained the top position in DJ Mag’s Top 100 Poll for 2012. Van Buuren was given the prestigious award last night at the Top 100 DJs Poll Awards event held during Amsterdam’s Convention Factory.

This win marks van Buuren’s fifth, record breaking victory, ousting last year’s winner, David Guetta, by a significant margin (Guetta placed fourth). T

Obligatory press gush from Armin van Buuren: “2012 opened new doors. David being No.1 last year, the popularity of Avicii, Swedish House Mafia and Afrojack, for dance music, it’s amazing. It was great that David got it last year, to show dance music is evolving and it’s still exciting. Being No.1 again feels fantastic – there’s so much love out there. I’m so thankful for it.”

Awards were also announced for the highest placed DJ in each genre; the highest climber, Porter Robinson; and the highest new entry, Nicky Romero. Danny Tenaglia was entered into the inaugural Hall Of Fame, with his award presented by film and television star, Idris Elba. Last year’s highest new entry, and this year’s highest placed dubstep DJ, Skrillex, has made it to No. 10.
