The results are in and “Trance-master” Armin Van Buuren is back to reclaim the #1 Dj spot in the world, According to Dj Mag’s Top 100 DJ’s of the year poll. Armin was unseated in 2011 by David Guetta for the first time in four years. Guetta has gained massive Top 40 success in the U.S. and last years win definitely helped his DJ “cred” but the world keeps turning! David Guetta’s new single “She Wolf” is slowly making it’s way into radio and we can’t wait to hear what these two great DJ/Producers will bring us in 2013!!!
The announcement was made during a special ceremony during the Amsterdam Dance Event.
His return to the top spot of the poll is sure to vindicate the Armin acolytes. “I still believe in melodic, uplifting trance,” the DJ told inthemix this year. “If you listen to A State Of Trance, you’ll see I still support that and I’m not changing my sound. I’ve always made different-sounding tracks: Drowning, Feels So Good. And then I make tracks as Gaia, a track with Orjan Nilsen, or something likeSuddenly Summer. I like to vary my palette, and I have no illusions that everyone will love everything I do. Staying stuck in one sound doesn’t inspire me.
