Every year, the world’s leading source for DJ tracklists, 1001 Tracklists compiles a list of the top-played artists, and they’ve just released the list of winners for 2018.
As told at the beginning, 1001tracklists has unveiled its TOP 101 Producers for 2018. The ranking is super simple: the more your tracks are played, the more your position in the ranking rises.
This year works a little bit different from last year because, if in 2017 the ranking was released in January, at the very beginning of the year, now they have used the data from October 1, 2017, to September 30, 2018.
Don Diablo takes the top spot with more than 1350 people who have played at least one of his records. Although Skrillex only popped up to play shows here and there, he holds down the number 2 spot. Axwell, CamelPhat and Hardwell round out the top five followed by Sebastian Ingrosso at the 7th, with two positions gained. Avicii rounds out the top 10 in great company with Martin Garrix, Diplo, and Tiesto.
Scrolling down the ranking we can find Kryder, Leandro Da Silva, Tom Staar, and D.O.D whom inexplicably lost positions. Dannic has gained a huge number of positions, as well as Nicky Romero, respectively 12 and 46 positioning themselves at the 32nd and 38th position. Steve Angello has climbed 59 positions, thanks to his unbelievable album HUMAN.
This year’s new entries includes Italian trio Sunstars, ranked at 41st followed by Will K at the 48th position.
