In the age of the EDM ego wherein certain promoters look as much at youtube hits and twitter followers as the quality of your music it’s nice to see some of dance music’s most famous names indulging in a little light hearted self depreciation. As many fans will realize it’s that time of year again wherein DJ Mag compile their always controversial, always commercially dominated Top 100 DJ list as voted for by their readers from the general public.
To mock the almost political level of campaigning for votes by certain artists Will Ferrell owned comedy website Funny Or Die has assembled an A list cast of stars to satirise the whole process. Sharing a spoof ‘campaign video’ a series of international artists from Afrojack to Boys Noize make surreal cameos to explain why we should vote for them or in Dillon Francis’ case why we should vote for the burrito loving Tiesto. For us the highlight of the piece is Paul Oakenfold explaining that voting for him is a moral choice stating “Vote for us, so we don’t have to get kids in India to do it for you” closely followed by Afrojack’s economic stimulus package that involves swiftly crashing luxury cars. Top work guys.
