        so that means the best DJ can’t be the best DJ just because he already is?
        he should have the right to be eligible again so we can see if people still thinks he is best!

    Worth noting pretty much every other poll I’ve ever seen here in Europe doesn’t feel the need to make Nationality and Citizenship and issue. A good DJ is a good DJ, whether from the US, the UK, Spain, Germany, Brazil, wherever.

    I believe an incredible DJ can only be judged from the dancefloor. I have seen many, many live performances, only a handful were indredible. Many of them were good set builders, some were indeed very technically gifted but only a few stood out as truely great. The DJ’s that I have witnessed tearing up a dancfloor with jaw dropping effect were: Mixmaster Mike, doing a 10min intro routine at a Beatie Boys gig, 20,000 people left buzzing about him. DJ Sneak, the guy oozes talent, great tunes, also the ability to use turntableism aside house and techno, altogether memorable every time. Dave Clarke, this guy cuts, spins and drops Techno bombs like a B52, intense dancefloor killer. Laurent Garnier, legendary 4-5 hour sets, covering jazz, jungle, house, techno and anything else, truely mesmorizing sets. And of course Ritchie Hawtin, the guy is like a scientist of DJ technology, always paving the way for legions to follow. Soulwax, or 2manyDJs, these guys broke the mould & turned CDJing into somthing interesting…at last. I’ve seen them a couple of times at festivals in huge arenas and they totally kicked the shit out of it. And who can forget Carl Cox, still rockin at 50, but in his 3 deck wizard days…WoW, he never took any prisoners, dancefloors were always packed, nuff said. Jeff Mills, wierd and wonderful, every colour, every shade of rhythm, sometimes a blur of activity but hugly impressive. And finally representing drum & bass the one guy that I believe is one of the best DJ’s on earth is none other than the Tornadfo from San Paulo, DJ Marky, OMG WTF just happened, is exactly how i spent 2 hours watching him, it was like watching a technics championship in fast forward! Additionally he was using CDJ’s, which is really my point. Many many guys out there bitch about new digital equiptment not being as good as Technics (to me personally they aint), but these guys are all out there showing you how its done. Anyway just some thoughts on the subject. Cheers, Rooshdy.
