The Resident Advisor 2016 Poll Results Revealed

The results are in and some of 2016's top performing artists have risen up the charts.

| by | News

Essentially, we can never really trust these polls or charts. The DJ Mag Top 100 is a tough one to really believe, with many paying over the top prices for features (and some even paying for chart places). Some on the other hand are more believable, such as the Resident Advisor 2016 poll, which essentially looks at the underground side of the scene.

And this year, the results are in. Some of the most prominent artists have made it onto the fan voted chart, with plenty of success stories coming through. Looking at the chart though, some are not really a surprise to see them feature, they really have had a major year and so kicking off the chart, we have this year’s winner.

Dixon. Yeah he has done it again as the Berlin native wins the gold medal for the 4th year in a row, four years! He has been dominant on the scene though, so for many, it doesn’t come as much of a shock. However he was closely followed by Jackmaster. And what a year the Scottish DJ has had. This man has stayed true to his values, still eclipsing his sets and still evolving his style, all while staying away from the studio. It’s not often these days you find an artist who does so well, without actually producing his own tracks.

Tale of Us, another duo who seem to be smashing the scene at the moment, have taken 3rd spot once more, before being followed by Maceo Plex and Solomun, in 4th and 5th respectively. AME, Adam Beyer, The Black Madonna and Ben UFO all round out the top ten, but not before we give a special mention to BICEP, the duo from Belfast. These two have been absolutely ripping through the scene with their own parties, huge edits and mighty tracks. They are firmly putting Northern Ireland on the scene.

A huge congratulations to everyone who featured on the Resident Advisor 2016 poll and all those that placed, you can check out the full Resident Advisor 2016 poll here.
