DJ Mag Poll - I made it into the Top 100 & got highest DnB DJ!!!

WOooharrrrrr!!!!

Should have posted this sooner but I've been in a cycle of celebrating & being hungover since last week! If you follow me on twitter or saw the news/mag already then you'll know but - WE DID IT!!! I got to number 92 in the DJ Mag Top 100 Poll, and was the highest DnB DJ in the whole thing!!

Went up to London on Wednesday for the awards ceremony at Ministry of Sound, was my first time at the venue actually - dunno how I've never been before! Went with the gorgeous Hayley Quinn got whisked inside and did a bunch of TV/Radio/Press interview stuff, then hung out in the VIP bit with Gareth Emery and his gang, Andy Moor, Matt Zo, the Anjunabeats folks, and probably lots of other famous trance DJs but I'm terrible at remembering who's who and what they look like! Managed to have a v quick chat with Armin Van Buuren who managed 3 years in a row at number 1 - he said he really liked DnB (but he thought we all still only played vinyl!) and I told him I really liked trance, and erm that's about it haha! He had a humungous entourage too, I counted about 8 or 9 serious looking businessmen types, but the coolest thing was his mum and dad were there with him! If I get in again next year I'm totally taking my parents too - but will have to get some earplugs for my mum, not too sure she's a fan of loud music - Radio 4 is more her bag ;-)

Anyway - I'm absolutely over the moon with the result, it's an amazing achievement to finally break into the DJ Mag Top 100, and an honour to be the highest Drum & Bass DJ! Thank you SO MUCH everyone that supported me in the poll - I promise I'll keep the podcasts coming, and keep giving it 200% on tour! Thanks!!!

You can see the full Top 100 list in this month's edition of DJ Mag, or on the DJ Mag website if you click here.

John did a quick interview with the fabulous skrufff.com guys the day after the announcement too - you can read the article here: http://skrufff.com/2009/10/trance-types-dominate-dj-mag’s-top-100-again/
