My favorite DJs and Artists right now are Gabriel & Dresden. They have had a great year. I have always liked them a lot. I saw them live for the first time at Coachella and they totally blew me away. I heard their Essential Mix and it was spectacular. Their new self-titled album came out and it was completely amazing. Their album is my favorite album of all time. It has a lot of amazing tracks on it. They did a great job. Then I saw them live for the second time in 3 months at the Electric Daisy Carnival and they totally rocked. I got in the front row and was dancing like crazy. So the Coachella, Essential Mix, New Album, EDC combo combined with me listening to all the great remixes I have from them and their productions as Andain and Motorcycle have made them my favorite artists. Gabriel & Dresden have well earned their status as some of the top DJs/top remixers/top producers in the world.

Tiësto is one of the top 3 DJs in the world along with Armin van Buuren and Paul van Dyk. However I have noticed a lot of mixed feelings towards him in the trance and EDM scene. He is a love him or hate him kind of guy right now(mostly love though). Personally I love Tiesto. He is a great producer, a great DJ, and a great remixer and he is vital to the trance scene that exists today. I hear a few people say that they don't like his style anymore or that they think the fame has gotten to him and he thinks he is all that and he isn't. Personally I think Tiesto still rocks! Even if he did think he was all that there are so many great new DJs and producers emerging in the scene that he would have to do his best to keep up with his current status. I think Tiesto probably has some great tunes he is working on up his sleeve right now. And from what I have heard the Tiesto in Concert performances were brilliant. I hope Tiesto keeps blowing us away.
