DJ Mag has released a new feature-length documentary: Top 100 DJs: The World’s Biggest Music Poll, celebrating the 30th anniversary of their Top 100 DJs poll.

The documentary gives an exclusive insight into the world’s biggest music poll, as told by some of electronic music’s best-known artists, from its humble beginnings in the ’90s as a postal vote through to what it is today.

It features interviews with artists that have been central to the Top 100 DJs poll during its 30-year history, including Carl Cox, Smokin Jo, David Guetta, Martin Garrix, Charlotte de Witte, Steve Aoki, Armin van Buuren, DJ Paulette, David Morales, Fatboy Slim, Arielle Free, ALOK, Sonique, Don Diablo, Hardwell, Sister Bliss, Sarah Story, Paul van Dyk, John Digweed, Mariana Bo and many more.

Speaking about the doco, DJ Mag’s operations director, Simon Kelly, said,

“To mark the 30th anniversary of Top 100 DJs, we wanted to capture this trajectory — in an honest and open way — alongside the sounds, scenes and artists the poll has reflected along the way. The team have worked tirelessly to bring this — our first long-form DJ Mag Originals documentary — to fruition and we’re incredibly excited to put this out into the world.”
