It’s that time of year again. A time where everyone gathers together for the holidays, and DJ’s flood the news feeds with “vote for me” or “don’t vote for me (but really vote for me)” posts. Jokes aside…it is a great time of year, musically, to reflect on the artists that truly made an impact on the scene as well as ourselves. The Resident Advisor polls are now open.
Voting for the 2014 Resident Advisor Top 100 DJs/Live Acts poll will be open until this Friday, November 28th, and you can cast your vote by following the link to the voting page. Unlike many other polls that seem to be strictly a popularity contest, the Resident Advisor poll has more methods to help ensure credibility. In order to vote for a specific DJ or Live Act one must have seen the artist(s) perform this year, and this is measured by the users RA diary. By having confirmed attendance via the specific event page on Resident Advisor, that is the indicator that RA uses to determine if the individual has in fact witnessed the artist perform. A valiant attempt to achieve some accurate votes and portray a true top 100.
Last years top 100 had a healthy mix of artists all over the underground spectrum. From the heavy techno of Marcel Dettman and Jeff Mills to the deep house fan favorites of Hot Since 82 and Eats Everything, the poll literally had it all. Will Dixon defend his title at the top as #1? The choice is up to us. Make sure to get your vote in before Friday, and you can be sure that we’ll keep you posted the minute the final results are in.
