The Vote Is On for America’s Best DJ

The competition is fierce in this year’s battle to be crowned “America’s Best DJ.” With talented and diverse artists like Mixmaster Mike, Diplo, A-Trak, and Moby gracing the list of 100 nominees, we’re curious to see who claims the title when electronic music lovers of all sub-genres cast their votes.

The competition, run by DJ Times magazine, opened polls to voters on Friday, May 28th. Throughout the summer, fans can vote for their favorite DJ at www.americasbestdj.net, choosing the one DJ who they think deserves the title (umm, not Pauly D, that’s for sure). The polls will close on Labor Day and the contest will wrap up with an award show/closing party on October 2 at The Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas (coincidentally where the 2009 winner, DJ Z-Trip, holds his weekly “Z-Trip Revolution” residency).

By voting for your favorite DJ, you’ll be entered to win gear from Pioneer DJ and Novation and free music downloads on Beatport. One voter (and a guest) will win a trip to Las Vegas for the America’s Best DJ closing party, including roundtrip airfare, a room at The Palms and the full VIP treatment.

But winning prizes doesn’t even come close to our favorite part of the competition: watching the nominees showcase their talent. No DJ can display their music-mixing and crowd-controlling skills unless they’re doing it live; so to help us choose our #1 pick, the ABDJ nominees have taken to the live music circuit, spreading their individual sounds across the states on a 20-event summer tour. The three-month run kicked off over Memorial Day weekend at Movement: Detroit’s Electronic Music Festival and hit Baltimore’s Starscape Festival last Saturday. If you missed out on those shows, you can still catch some of these guys perform throughout the summer. Trouble & Bass Crew will take the stage tonight at Santos Party House (NYC), while DJ Icey can be found at Ruby Skye (San Francisco) on June 18th and Saeed Younan at Lima Lounge (DC) on July 3rd. More shows should be announced soon, so keep on the lookout to see your favorite DJs perform live.

Stay tuned to CP for updates, and in the meantime, let us know who you think should win the 2010 America’s Best DJ competition.
