I am not a DJ. I am not a Musician. I don’t know crap about Music Theory. I am a just a tech guy who happens to have a true passion for techno music. I have never DJed a single day of my life and I am not planning on doing so in the near future.
I am not in this corrupt EDM game! I don’t produce songs for money. I have no interest in selling tracks on beatport or Itunes or at the dollar store. I am pretty much just a hobbyist techno producer who is raising little children in elementary school while juggling a full time IT job and occasionally driving Uber too. The reason why I make this line of music is simply because I really happen to like this line of music.
What’s my secret?
The secret is a different workflow which combines DJ & Producer into one simple DAW. Investment and Hardware requirements are practically zero. Think about what this means for the future if someone like me – a non DJ / non musician – can produce and play at this level without any need for hardware whatsoever. Exactly ….u dont need $hit!!! … but what is this going to mean for 100s of companies in the business of producing hardware which they currently find relevant for EDM production? Exactly! Adios amigos. Uh oh …. I just painted a target on my back. Pioneer is gonna put a bounty on my head now 🙂
While the average EDM artist either goes down the path of an EDM producer or local EDM DJ, I’ve taken a slightly different approach by combining both into my DAW. I built tracks by recording myself DJing freestyle with the DAW. While this is the most difficult way, I now have prove that this is the fastest way for progression as a DJ and Producer at the same time.
I’ve been doing this for a couple years only but my approach is almost like hardcore body building on steroids. You will witness an incredible self-growth if you adapt to my workflow and use the DAW for DJing and Producing simultaneously.
You may wonder what type of progress you will make within 12-24 months. Here is a sample. Check out some of my earlier tracks i.e. ElectroBeatz which I produced 2 years ago. My skill level was up to that level at that point. Compare this to i.e. Album 420 or some of my more recent work. Do you see what I mean? You will go from zero to hero within just 1-2 years. It takes conventional artists often a decade or longer to reach a certain maturity level.
I actually truly believe that the combination of Workflow & DAW which I created will set the standard for the next generation EDM production since the advantages of producing / DJing my way are way more fruitful in the long-run than any conventional methods. I have just produced Album 420 with 23 tracks in less than 8 hours.
You no longer have to go down an exclusive path of an EDM producer or local EDM DJ. Those days will be over soon and future artists will use a DAW that does both.
Peace 4 now

General Problems with DJ TOP 100 Lists
It’s based on EDM Ticket Sales which reflects how well the Artist is marketed by the label; not artistical talent.
DJMAG data is not suitable as an unbiased resource !
I would have probably expected a few more candidates from the Duchess neighbors to the South East since:
Germany has over 80 Mil residents, 4 times the population of Holland and had the Love Parade for 2 decades until 2010. The Love Parade, one of the most famous Rave events of the year which originated in Berlin in 1989 and has been going on for decades until 2010 where 1.4 Mil people attended. Small map below showing path from cologne to Amsterdam, only 2 1/2 hours.
One last time …
Spinnin’ Records maintains and rotates a fairly large pool of dutch artists through the Top 100 DJ spots.
Spinnin’ engages in traffic recycling techniques which they use on all their artists. They like to co-brand their new artists with their more prominent Top 4 artists such as Tiesto, Garrix, Hardwell, Vegas & Mike and arrange for collaborations exclusively within their own artists in order to reuse, recycle and focus their fan traffic only on in-house Spinnin’ signed artists.
As seen in the screenshot below. Artist participation can often be voluntary as long as the name is in the title, we good. Who cares, right?
P.S. This Blog goes well with Chardonnay.
