And close on the heels of the Top 100 DJs of 2010 comes the Top 10 Live Acts:
02. Nicolas Jaar
04. Henrik Schwarz
05. Booka Shade
08. Guy Gerber
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?
