1 DJ FASE Not only is his weekly Monday-night gig at Alto Basso one of the hottest nights in town, but he's also the go-to guy for hiphop and funk who gets booked for a huge variety of events and always delivers.
2 MIKE TULL The days of DJs who make their names in one multi-hyphenated subgenre are over, which is great for the incredibly versatile Tull . Whether you want soul, electro, hiphop, house, reggae, rock or Latin, he's probably got it.
3 ADAM MARSHALL Though he spins at many local techno parties, Marshall still manages to play something that surprises you each time you hear him.
4 WILL MUNRO In the ongoing debate about technique vs song selection, Munro makes an extremely strong case for the latter, playing unmixed sets of punk, disco, electro and no-wave that actually get people dancing.
5 ADAM KHAN His Solutions deep house parties have had a tough year looking for a new home, but as a DJ Khan's getting better and better. His online sets provide the soundtrack to many a day in front of the computer.
6 ANDREW ALLSGOOD Very active in pushing that as yet undefined electro-disco-house-rock-techno fusion, Allsgood mixes the best of the brand new with familiar classics, a balance you can catch at Synchro and Fascination, his two ongoing events.
7 DINO & TERRY Their regular club nights have moved around this year, but they've emerged from the changes with a hot yet intimate Friday-night party at Beba and a rotating residency Saturdays on the third floor of Lust Nightclub.
8 QUADRASONIC Alvaro C and Boris "KidConga" run a monthly party that modifies the traditional role of the DJ: they team up with two guest DJs playing simultaneously on eight turntables. It could have failed, but the crowds love it and continue to pack their events.
9 TASK Over the past year, DJ Task has emerged from the shadow of his experimental techno collective, Wabi, to shine as a techno DJ who can work both the feet and the mind.
10 MARK OLIVER It's easy overlook an institution like the Guvernment, but it's hard to ignore the fact that Saturday-night resident Mark Oliver continues to fill that huge room every week. If you let go of your ideas about underground cool for a moment, you'll have to admit he's talented.
