RA's readers start the poll season off by picking out their favourite DJs of the year.

So here they are: your top 100 DJs of 2010. We know you, the RA readers, each drew upon unique sets of criteria and experiences in selecting your favourites—and this is what we at RA find most fascinating. Whether it was the main stage set that blew you away; the afterparty performance that changed your perspective; or perhaps just doting over a monthly residency, these are the DJs that touched you somehow, affirming the reasons why you love this in the first place.

This is not a radically different list from last year—every music scene has its mainstays of course—but the movers and shakers make for intriguing reading. House, techno and their myriad offshoots naturally represent the bulk of artists on the list, although disco veterans, dubstep selectors and Detroit mavericks all challenge the order. Whoever they were and wherever they came from, these were the DJs who packed dance floors, travelled the world and quite possibly changed some lives in 2010.

20. Chris Liebing



Chris Liebing has been big for a long time, but over the past two years he's also been big and interesting, using his CLR platform to push emerging techno talent like never before. Liebing has sounded rejuvenated as a result, his sets fresher and more textured. It would have been easy to rest on his (very impressive) laurels, but Liebing's slight rise in this year's poll reflects that his fans also appreciate his willingness to innovate. There's a reason that his weekly podcast is the most important and (more importantly) the most relevant of its kind.

19. DJ Koze



More often than not, you'll see an "extended set" tag next to the name DJ Koze. He's a particular fellow in a very good way, in that he demands to make sure that he has the room to present the full scope of his musical interests in any given night. That he didn't do all that much this year—a single, a few exceptional remixes, gigs around the world—shouldn't tell you the story of Koze in 2010. The music did. Lucky for us, then, that we got to hear so much of it.

18. Cassy



Whether it's a mega-club like Amnesia or a shoebox like Club der Visionare, Cassy can always find her groove. These days she's moving up in the world, leaving behind the intimate parties for bigger and bigger crowds, and her sound has changed too—more often Cocoon than Perlon. But one thing that hasn't changed is the warm aura she brings to the decks; between her friendly charisma and her sultry house style, Cassy makes the dance floor cozy.

17. Steve Lawler



"One can't survive without the other," said Steve Lawler when asked to compare mega festivals and underground gigs. "We want people to hear our music. But we also need these smaller events so creativity can breathe." Lawler has maintained a careful balance between both as well, charting a course that keeps him as comfortable in front of audiences both massive and miniscule. That's due in no small part to the meticulous work he undertakes in making edits of nearly everything in his record bag, ensuring that when you hear him perform, it literally sounds like no one else.

16. Soul Clap



Not too long ago, Soul Clap were accepting gigs at Macy's department store in Boston. Now all of a sudden they're international pros, cooling their heels in Miami after a summer spent hopping around Europe. In person they may seem unfazed, as if this was always part of the plan, but you can hear in their music that they're glowing from the breakthrough. Their sexed-up, slowed-down sound has a spark that's rare in club music, and it's got everyone rooting for them.

15. Magda



2010 was the year that Magda broadened her purview. Her much anticipated solo album, From the Fallen Page, dropped in October, while her podcast for us back in July confounded expectations by bringing together the likes of Bernard Fevre, Ryuichi Sakamoto and Fad Gadget. Back on her regular stomping ground—the DJ booth—Magda remained among the most travel-hardened jocks on the circuit. 2010 further proved that her reductionist take on house and techno is still very much in demand the world over.

14. Joris Voorn



"The Secret" might not have achieved the same rabid levels of popularity as "Sweep the Floor," but Joris Voorn's relatively quiet production year hasn't taken any of the luster off his reputation as a DJ. The volume of appearances in the upper rungs of festivals was staggering: from the anorak crowd at Bloc, to Creamfields in Australia, plus WMC and Awakenings, not to mention his We Love... residency. But the arenas and super clubs were smartly balanced out with other highlights, like his bromantic club series with Nic Fanciulli.

13. Sasha



They say that Ibiza is like no other place in the world. And so it was for Sasha in 2010, where at Ushuaia he found his groove again, playing to the beach bar crowd alongside artists like Cassy and Sander Kleinenberg. That's not to say, though, that Sasha has given up his high-profile diary. With shows around the world, he continues to play unique sets that reflect his lengthy career in the scene as well as his insatiable appetite for new music.

12. Sven Väth



Sven Väth has never been the kind of DJ to stand there shyly cradling his headphones. For as long as anyone can remember, he's been ripping off his shirt, throwing his fist in the air and breaking into the occasional crazed dance routine. He's kept up this raucous act for decades, making him almost feel like family to his fans. They don't call him Papa Sven for nothing.

11. Marco Carola



The Italian stallion rode roughshod over the world of dance music yet again in 2010, bringing his tough techno to audiences around the world. Last time around we talked about how remarkable his traveling schedule is, and it was exactly the same in 2010. Rarely taking a week off, Carola is the type of guy who can get away with having a comically underused Twitter: The man doesn't need anything more than his music to interact with his fans.

10. Marcel Dettmann



Dettmann: The simple, eponymous title of the Berghain resident's debut album encapsulated an MO that Ben Klock described to us this year as "music without compromise." Despite the bloody-minded nature of his sets and recorded output, Dettmann increasingly become an international commodity in 2010. That he travels the world via a stark, unmitigated vision of techno—and continues to enjoy a place among the genre's foremost names—is testament to a man with an unwavering belief in his art.

09. Luciano



The sound of Cadenza continued its assault on the mainstream of dance music, most notably in Ibiza where Luciano and friends took over Pacha every Sunday night this summer. By all accounts, it was an enormous success for club and label alike. But perhaps, most of all, for the DJ. A master of Latin-inclined house music, it's no wonder this marriage has worked out so well on Ibiza. Now among the hottest DJing properties on the global scene, Luciano is one of the flushest vagabonds you're likely to ever run across.

08. John Digweed



How do you explain John Digweed's continued top 10 appearance in your DJ poll? Easy. There are few other DJs in the world that have been able to push progressive house this late in the game and still sound as fresh. Diggers hasn't revolutionized his sound, but it's most certainly evolved over the years. Just look over the tracklist for his most recent mix, which fits John Daly, Nic Fanciulli and Vincenzo alongside the Guy Js and Nick Warrens of the world. Still distinct after all these years, it's no wonder Digweed remains among your favourites.

07. Dixon



Maybe the biggest advantage DJs have over bands is this: they can play absolutely whatever they want. Few artists take advantage of this fact more than Dixon. Over the course of a half hour in one of his sets, you could hear anything from Oni Ayhun to LCD Soundsystem to Crystal Waters' "Gypsy Woman." Combine that with sensei-level mixing skills and a knack for narrative arc, and you've got one of the top ten DJs in the world.

06. Jamie Jones



If there were a "Rising Star" pageant sash for the year, it would adorn the shoulders of the affable Welshman who has galloped 30 places ahead into our top ten. 2009 defined Jamie Jones as a producer, but this year he felt more present as a DJ, whether it be with sunny disco, edit-friendly house or tribal beats, he left an impression long after aching feet and ringing ears had faded. Like we said of his standout set in Detroit, "It was only when Jamie Jones came on that things began to distinguish themselves."

05. Ben Klock



The Berghain sound. When the noise the Berlin club was making came to widespread prominence in 2008 it was unclear whether this particular strand of techno packed longevity. Ben Klock was among the chief proponents of this tenebrous throb, and in 2010 played an intrinsic role in consolidating the sound. His Berghain 04 mix evidenced impressive depth of range, while gigs in Russia, Japan, Argentina and America imparted the vibe of a debauched Sunday morning upon international audiences.

04. Loco Dice



The physical house sound of Loco Dice once again reigned supreme in 2010. It was due in no small part to the man himself, whose charismatic sets continued to impress. All three of the event reviews featuring Dice this year mentioned his superstar presence behind the decks, and they're right to do so. He has a commanding style. But perhaps even more fascinating is that while his label released some of the biggest club hits of the year, they also found room for the poetic wandering of Der Rauber und Der Prinz and Pulshar's dance pop.

03. Seth Troxler



It's hard to say exactly why Seth Troxler has again made an enormous jump in RA's DJ poll. But somehow it's also hard not to imagine why he wouldn't. He's the classic "boys want to be him, girls want to be with him" DJ of the moment, a gregarious jock who can't seem to put a foot wrong. From his outlandish interviews to his outstanding sets, Troxler translated id-inspired artistic decisions into enormous success. Whether it be bats in Miami, a DC-10 residency in Ibiza or party guilt in Berlin, it was Troxler's world in 2010. We were just witnessing it.

02. Richie Hawtin



The most incredible thing about Richie Hawtin as DJ in 2010? The fact that he did it at all. The rebirth of Plastikman was a massive undertaking for the Minus boss, making his DJ sets a sidelight. Even so, Hawtin continued to deliver throughout the year, whether it be as a fill-in for Ricardo Villalobos at Movement or as the main event at just about everywhere else. Tough and menacing, he's hardly minimal these days, pushing a technologically-enhanced sound that is often the result of three or more tracks being played at once.

01. Ricardo Villalobos



There's something comforting about seeing Ricardo Villalobs at #1 for the second time in three years. It means that you value a DJ willing to take risks. A DJ that doesn't court the media. A DJ that still plays vinyl almost exclusively. There is a cult about him, sure. But sometimes these things arise for good reasons. What made Villalobos particularly great in 2010? All of those aforementioned elements, in addition to a punishing schedule that saw him play just about anywhere (aside from an aborted gig in the United States at Movement) that matters in the world of electronic music. London, Berlin, Ibiza, Australia: All of these places and many more got to see just what makes Ricardo Villalobos your #1 DJ of 2010.
