Who is your favorite DJ and why is he/she? I am interested in what ppl have as their favorite. I mean DJ as in liveset, not as producer :P:

I like Tiesto the most of all. In the first place he doesnt look that good. But after i heard him live somewhere i felt in love immediatly :love:

I love the way how he brings the new track while mixing. Everytime he mixes in a new track you get an euforic feeling. I like the way armin van buuren mixes too but he doesnt fit the magikal skills Tiesto has.

I noticed we need a bit more forum activeness so threads like this are welcome. You didnt tell us about your favorite dj yet Dan.. :P:

I love Tiesto too, he might be a corporate conglomerate (spelling?!) these days but he still knows how to thrill a crowd..... in my opinion of course!

He's always relentlessly playing with his knobs (on the mixer before you get any ideas!!) when bringing in a new track.

He generally plays a wider range of tracks too, something I enjoy as I like many different forms of EDM......

Can't wait to see him when he's back in the UK

No one is better than PVD... Paul has got the best mixing skills (no matter if its vinyl cd or pc) this guy simply rocks. No one on earth can make such energy-filled sets like he does... Armin is also goood... but PVD is my personal No1

DJ Precision & Ronski Speed was my favorite of all time! But now is Aly & Fila, DJ Shah!
Since Ronski Speed doesnt really spin my style anymore and DJ Precision quit to keep up with his label Somatic Sense!

he was in Poland last year at Creamfields and i didn't hear him but i heard that it wasn't amazing set, nothing special.. but i also saw film from Love Parade 2006 and Paul's set was unforgettable! one of best sets at LP 06
so now.. and now i don't know.. i don't like Paul as a producer and i haven't heard him live yet so .. i'm neutral :P:

fav dj well let see i seen tiesto live many times and i love how he drives the crowd he gets into the crowd but his sets arent that great some times he is my number 1 dj when is LIVE but on the radio ferry corsen woah that kid is insane i meet him a cuple of times and woah he is nuts inside the dj booth and out side so
number one to listen to live TIESTO number 2 listen on radio or live ferry corsen !
number 3 pvd !

There is a big difference between TIESTO live and live at the radio. I think he is way better Live. On the radio he is just as good as many other dj's..

ATB? TIESTO?

Ok....I'll keep my mouth shut.

James Zabiela blows pretty much everyone out of the water, if you dont know who he is, find out. You need to know the future of DJing.

This guy is the only DJ who has ever made me go "WOW". Period.

There are a bunch of DJs on AH.fm that would give TIESTO and ATB a run for their money live, i would really like to see anyone do the things James Zabiela does. I have been working for 6 months learning his techniques even purcahsed a couple of EFX-5000s, and creativity and hands-on approach of this guy still amazes me.

its the future.

I liked Tiesto since 2004......then he got reeally worse to me....

Nowadays I really like some other "less known" djs, like Manuel le Saux, Six Senses, Sean Tyas, Lange, Leon Bolier, Bronzwaer and many others......I actually get crazy with PvD sets, vut recently he's also gone down with his powerful sets, shame!

Hanki

'What'

I mean he can't produce a DJ set, because he doesn't know what does good transition mean, he doesn't know what's mood and what's style, not to mention a tracks selection...

well since he started to release his ATB the DJ compilations, think he has improved so much is previous cheesie period, didn't he?

as producer of course he's still not the best trancer, for sure!!

Right now, Talla 2XLC and Sean Tyas.
Both are impressive as a DJ. Sean is an excellent producer to.

After the set Talla 2XLC did at Mondaybar Lucia Cruise. Probably the best I've heard from a DJ ever.

Well, seems like U don;t get the point of the DJ mix. It's not only about the tracks, because you can play simply the best ones, but the thing is, that you've to bring'em to the listeners in a proper and adequate way. DJing it's not foobar or winamp where you only put tracks and play them, track order and the style, the way you present and play them is I think the most important factor as we're talking about the DJ mix. ATB doesn't know these rules so that's why i can't call him a DJ and his 'mixes' are damaging my brain...

This really makes me download a set of atb. I'm really interested right now..

I do agree with Hanki that it takes more then just choose best tunes and mix them, on the other hand I can't really comment on the whole my cousin cant mix, I never head a set by Andre.

Its all about the journey the dj can take you on with his shows... :P

Its hard to say is my favorite I've been listening and Dj'n a long time. There is so much talent out here. Tiesto by far is years ahead of the music. Very talented and has always been the best. Well, we all know that but Ive seen him several times and every time he comes to Florida he just doesnt seem to be as excited to be here. Know Armin and Ferry are always interactive with the crowd. So my list of favorites is 1Tiesto 2 Armin 3Paul VanDyke 4Ferry Corsten 5Paul Oakenfold 6Matt Darey 7 Markus Shulz 8Sean Tyas. Sorry about that list goes on and on.......................................:grinning:

Favorite producer of the moment: Paul Miller. No doubt about it.

Although in both categories there are a lot of DJ's/producers which I can't decide who will be in my top 5. :)

May 14th, 2008, 21:49
My favourite DJs are Armin van Buuren and Eddie Halliwell. Armin is one of the few that I've seen playing live. It was in Amnesia, Ibiza, and the man just made the people go nuts with his set! Eddie is, well... Eddie is just brilliant! His sets are always very energetic and uplifting and the man knows it all when it comes to djing and scratching!
This year I'm going to see Paul van Dyk and Tiesto here, in Portugal.

Well...there are so many DJs that I admire and I love listening...But I think Tiesto is who I'm really mad about! :super:His tracks that make everything in you move, the way he plays the records, the way he feels the music, the way he gets out of control on his parties and he makes the whole croud go mad... I'm in love with the In Search of Sunrise series...beautiful tracks...music that touches your heart! :love:
