Dixon Tops Resident Advisor's 2016 Top 100 List

Maarten Kadiks
DJ Dixon

Plus: Carl Cox, Skream & The Black Madonna break the top 20 for first time.

Resident Advisor is the underground's answer to the DJ Mag Top 100.

Both are fan-voted lists, but the RA readers seem to value mixing ability over star power -- although we may never completely understand the way it works. For instance, why is this the first year Carl Cox has cracked the top 20? Skream too. These guys are legends, and we're proud their hard work is paying off.

Also joining the ranks of the illustrious top 20 are Hot Creations' Patrick Topping, Chicago's The Black Madonna and Korea's Hunee.

Taking home the top prize for an unprecedented four years in a row is Germany's Dixon. Jackmaster, Tale of Us, Maceo Plex and Solomun round out the top five. Check the top 20 below, and see the full list and learn more about the artists at Resident Advisor.
