The DJ Revolution

Martin Solveig Feat. Dragonette: "Hello (remix)"

The DJ world and culture have recently taken the music world by storm. Now, not only are DJs paid to rock parties, but they are also getting paid like artists and spinning their own tracks or remixes in venues where only bands used to perform. Gone are the days when the DJ was just expected to show up, spin some good music, and go home. Now big name DJs have light shows, visuals effects, and even use props during their performances. When Steve Aoki performs, you can guarantee he will be crowd surfing, and Skrillex has used video game technology to put an avatar of himself on the video screen that mimics his every move on stage. DJs have become the new rock stars, not only remixing popular songs, but now creating their own original beats. The DJ has taken center stage. A-trak, who won the DMC (Disco Mix Club) Championship at the age of 15, was Kanye West’s Tour DJ for many years and is now part of the production team Duck Sauce. Here is a list of DJs, artists, and producers who are at the top of their game.
