NEWS: MixMag Reveals the 20 Greatest Dance Acts of All Time!


Talk about a daunting task! MixMag is by far my favorite EDM publication, and I view it as a holy bible. The editors are brilliant, the content is exceptional, and the breadth and depth of information found throughout the magazine is overwhelming. Their list of the top 100 DJ’s of 2011 was tenfold better than DJ Mag’s, with names like Jamie Jones and Marco Carola in the top 10, rather than Avicii and David Guetta. So, without further ado, I present to you what the legends over at MixMag had to say about the greatest dance acts ever:

“The results are in! From September to December last year, you voted in your tens of thousands to decide who was the greatest dance act of all time.The poll was embraced by fans from Birmingham to Buenos Aires – acts campaigned fiercely, heated debate ensued and all of our expectations were exceeded by your response to the poll.And now the wait is over. Below is a list of your top twenty greatest dance acts of all time, including the all important winner.”

1. The Prodigy
2. Daft Punk
3. The Chemical Brothers
4. Faithless
5. Deadmau5
6. Plastikman

    I wouldn’t call the prodigy overrated. Perhaps they don’t deserve 1 (I would have voted Daft Punk for 1), but they are still amazing. The amount of big producers that draw influence from Prodigy’s “Fat of the Land” album is unbelievable. Right up there with “Homework” by Daft Punk and “†” by Justice.

    The Prodigy’s Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned album is fantastic

    But indeed Fat of the Land is one of the most influential EDM albums out there.
