Since 2006, the folks at America’s Best DJ and Pioneer DJ have been working together to find out who the fans think is, well, the best DJ in the U.S. And today, it’s been revealed who the fans think deserves the top spot for 2011: Los Angeles-based DJ Kaskade. He will receive his award for being voted America’s Best DJ at a party in Vegas next month, when they’ll hand him a special gold-plated Pioneer mixer. Pretty rad.
Kaskade issued the following statement on his win:
“I am really proud to be named America’s Best DJ. When I look at the Top 100 list, there are so many talented people on there, people that I have looked up to for years. So, to be awarded this title amongst such an awesome group is a great feeling. I really want to thank all my fans for voting and their continued support.”
Some of those talented people he was referring to are Skrillex and Z-Trip, who landed in second and third place, respectively, along with A-Trak, Diplo, Designer Drugs, and others who fell in the top 10.
