And close on the heels of the Top 100 DJs of 2010 comes the Top 10 Live Acts:

01. Plastikman
02. Nicolas Jaar
03. dOP
04. Henrik Schwarz
05. Booka Shade
06. Shed
07. Moderat
08. Guy Gerber
09. Shackleton
10. Paul Kalkbrenner

Anyone see a pattern here? If the DJMag poll is riding nuts on the trance express, then RA is in the back room with techno. Somebody has to say it!

Look, I’m not saying these aren’t killer live acts… I’m just saying that there is an agenda with Resident Advisor and the folks that have been slammin’ me for not going along with their poll picks as the final word in dance music need to acknowledge the favoritism. RA leans to tech-ish sounds! It doesn’t take anything away from the artists, but it is what it is.

Besides, what has Plastikman/Hawtin done lately?
