RA’s Top 100 DJs Of 2013

Seminal electronic music hub Resident Advisor revealed their Top 100 DJs Of 2013 list today, which saw Berliner and Innervisions boss Dixon standing proud at the peak after his #3 showing last year.

Other big moves included Richie Hawtin’s slip one spot down to #3 behind Tale Of Us, a brand new act by comparison, coming in at #2. Last year’s #1, Seth Troxler, fell four spots to #5.

Since its inaugural edition in 1993, the RA Top 100 has given readers the chance to vote on who they thought had the best year in the DJ world. Much like the site itself, the list is representative of a more traditional definition of DJ when compared with today’s DJ/producer-centric focus in publications and top lists like DJ Mag‘s Top 100, which placed Hardwell at #1 this year, a DJ who is completely absent from the RA Poll.

Here are what we thought were some of the biggest plays of the year:

Biggest Leaps

Mano Le Tough
#53 ⬆ #19
Jackmaster
#68 ⬆ #21

Biggest Falls

Lee Foss #25 ⬇ #85
Blawan #29 ⬇ #88

Notable Newbies

Hot Since 82 (#22)
Rødhåd (#38)
Laurent Garnier (#36)

Highest-Ranking Female

tINI (#12)
