If you are a modern music lover, then you must surely be a fan of some or the other DJ whose beats just pump up your heart. Whoever may be your favourite DJ, there’s a magazine that lists down the top 100 DJs in the world every year. This helps people discover new musicians and new music. This time, a very young man has topped the list.

The ‘DJ Magazine’ has released its list of Top 100 DJs in the world, and standing at the number one position is a Dutch DJ named Martin Garrix. Martin is just 20 years old, thus making him the youngest DJ ever to get to the top of DJ Mag’s list. In case you don’t know, this list is a publicly voted one that ranks DJs every year.

Talking about this year, the ‘DJ Mag Top 100 DJs’ list 2016 got more than one million votes from countries including (but not limited to) India, Russia, China, Japan, Spain, UK, Germany, Mexico, Italy, Brazil, France, and many others. Most votes went to Martin Garrix, who is famous for the hit ‘Animals’ (2013), ‘Don’t Look Down’ (ft. Usher), and more.

Reports say that the young Dutch DJ is releasing seven new songs at the Amsterdam Dance Event. So far, he has released ‘Sun is Never Going Down’ (ft. Dawn Golden), ‘Spotless’ (ft. Jay Hardway), and ‘WIEE’ (ft. Mesto).

While Martin topped the list, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike were placed at the second spot. The Belgian duo were on the top of the list last year. Meanwhile, the third place has been claimed by Hardwell, another Dutch DJ, who was the winner of the list in 2013 and 2014.
