We’re delighted to announce that John B was voted #1 DnB DJ at this year’s DJ Mag Top 100 Poll, coming in at #92 overall!
John was presented with his award on Wednesday night at the Ministry of Sound nightclub in London, by Peter Hook (of Joy Division & New Order). More than 300,000 votes were cast this year, from 263 different countries.
We’d like to thank everyone who voted for John for the support & for taking the time to vote for him. John said in his blog: “I’m absolutely over the moon with the result, it’s an amazing achievement to finally break into the DJ Mag Top 100, and an honour to be the highest Drum & Bass DJ! Thank you SO MUCH everyone that supported me in the poll – I promise I’ll keep the podcasts coming, and keep giving it 200% on tour! Thanks!!!”
Armin Van Buuren was number 1 for the 3rd year running, (and told John he was secretly a fan of Drum & Bass!), and there were some great DJ sets on the night from Mr Buuren, Gareth Emery, Above & Beyond & lots of other guys, but we’d had too much champers by then to remember!
You can see the full Top 100 list in this month’s edition of DJ Mag, or on the DJ Mag website if you click here.
John was interviewed by skrufff.com about the award last week – you can read the article here.
Here’s the John B entry in the Magazine:

The promoters from the John B gig at Douala in Ravensburg on Saturday night kindly gave us this clipping from the SchwÃƒÂ¤bische Zeitung, the main newspaper for the region.
If our German skills are correct it looks like they called John a ‘Bird of Paradise’ hahahah! The mention of Nine Inch Nails lured in a few mega-NIN fans too, along with all the usual electroDnB misfits! Excellent to see such a broad range of fans out at the weekend going mental in such a small town!
You can see John B’s iphone photoblog pictures if you click here, and we’ll shortly be posting photos from the pro-photographers on the night too.
The first John B gig on 2009, if the rest are anywhere near as good it’s going to be a killer year!

If you can read German here’s a cool mini interview John did for a magazine in Freiburg before his gig over there in November 2008.
