DJ Magazine (also known as DJ Mag) is a British monthly magazine dedicated to electronic dance music and DJs.[1] Founded 31 January 1991, the magazine is translated monthly to Portuguese, Polish (since June 2010),[2] Ukrainian, Lithuanian, Chinese, Bulgarian, Spanish, French, German, Italian and Dutch.[3]

DJ Mag Canada, launched in partnership with IHM Media Group in January 2012 and publishes exclusive Canadian content. IHM Media Group also publishes DJ Mag Caribe and DJ Mag Australia.

DJ Blackbook[edit]

In January 2008, the magazine created the DJ Blackbook which is a database of DJs, producers and promoters. It was released online and in a printed version with over 10000 contacts.[citation needed]

DJ Mag Top 100 Polls[edit]

The magazine publishes two annual "Top 100" lists, one for DJs and one for nightclubs. As of 2010 both polls are based on a public vote. Trackitdown.net formed a collaboration with the 2008 DJ poll, saying "By offering each voter a free track to download from our catalogue of 350,000 titles from over 10,000 labels, we can demonstrate how easy it is to find your favourite electronic music legally."[4] The awards party for the poll has traditionally been hosted at the Ministry of Sound nightclub in London. For the 2011 poll, the event was hosted outside of the UK for the first time in its history, being staged at the 2011's edition of the Amsterdam dance event. The 2012 and 2013 award shows were both held on 19 October at the same event.[5][6] Until 2002, the top three has consisted of at least one English DJ. However, the same year and onwards saw at least one Dutch DJ in the top three. Armin van Buuren currently holds the record of most wins with five to his name. Although, some DJ's pay for their place on this list, which is a legal action, offered by the DJ Magazine directors.
