DJ Mag Top 100 DJs reveal is just around the corner and the rankings have always been a topic of popular debate. In past years we’ve seen DJs such as Hardwell and Armin van Burren as the world’s number one DJ with Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike surprising the entire EDM community after being revealed as last year’s number ones.
This past week, Gareth Emery & Ashley Wallbridge, under the alias CVNT5, released a spoof documentary on the DJ Mag Top 100 DJs competition. This isn’t the first time the duo has called out others who have “paid their way” to the top but DJ Mag has been accused by many for being rigged, ranked DJs buying their votes.
The beginning of the video starts off with “In May 2016, we began documenting the story of EDM supergroup CVNT5 on their quest to become Number One in DJ Mag’s notorious Top 100 DJs poll. WARNING: Contains spoilers of the 2016 poll results. Some viewers may find the following footage offensive.” It documents the journey that the two take to become number one, including a scene where they employ Asian workers in Vietnam (but actually set in Los Angeles) to cast votes in a sweatshop-like environment for CVNT5 to become number one.
