Editor’s note: Over the last few weeks, we set out to find the best DJ talent in some of our major cities – and we found it in droves.

While it’s been a lot of fun to bring you our Best DJ lists, it also hasn’t been an easy task to narrow our rankings down to 10 names in each city and we’ve had to make some tough calls. We realize everyone may not agree with our final lists and that’s OK. What we really hope to have accomplished is to highlight some of the incredible talent of the men and women who keep us dancing with their original mixes and produced tracks, and to introduce our readers to some names they may not have heard of before – whether in their own city or another.

What’s true of all the DJs on our list is that when you listen to their work, there will be moments that simply catch you off guard and make you smile. Their creativity and artistry know no bounds, and we’re very proud of the final list we put together. Sit back, listen and enjoy the sounds brought to you by the Best 100 DJs in the nation.
