Yesterday’s DJ Mag Top 100 list left many as jaded as the year before, with many mainstage acts and still confusion about why it’s called the “Top 100 DJs” when there are many better DJs than those listed. Naming ambiguity aside, it’s an interesting insight into analytics and statistics and how either 1) DJs can leverage their fans for votes or 2) how loyal some fans are to groups that either haven’t done anything this year or haven’t done anything notable.

On the other side of the coin, DJ Mag is running its Alternative Top 100 this year once again, in partnership with Beatport. The list is compiled by combining votes in the Top 100 DJs poll with house and techno sales data from Beatport, in order to produce a list of the top house/techno DJs in the world.

The Alternative Top 100 looks very, very different than the mainstage-centric Top 100, with names you’d more commonly find at neonGARDEN at EDC or the Pink Tent at HARD, or any other house-focused festival stage. Oft looked over by those heading to the main stage or bass stages, the house and techno community is often as die hard as they come, and still put out their votes for their favorites this year.

Compared to the main DJ Mag Top 100 which featured 12 women, the Alternative Top 100 features 21 amazing women, with Nora En Pure becoming the highest new entry already breaking into the top 10, and Charlotte De Witte coming away with #1, over Carl Cox! There are five women in the top 10 alone, including Amelie Lens, Nina Kraviz, and Peggy Gou.
