Armin Van Buuren Crowned King of 2008 DJ Mag Poll Ultra Records’ Artists Tiësto, Above & Beyond, David Guetta, Ferry Corsten, Markus Schulz, deadmau5, Sander van Doorn, Paul Oakenfold and Axwell Take Top Honors (Ultra Records)

Armin Van Buuren Crowned King of 2008 DJ Mag Poll Ultra Records’ Artists Tiësto, Above & Beyond, David Guetta, Ferry Corsten, Markus Schulz, deadmau5, Sander van Doorn, Paul Oakenfold and Axwell Take Top Honors (Ultra Records)

Last night, the official and full results of the British DJ Mag Top 100 poll were revealed at the official ‘DJ Mag Top 100 DJ’s Party 2008’ in London. Ultra Records’ artist Armin van Buuren has been voted number one DJ for the second year in a row!

Armin van Buuren has been listed in the DJ Mag Top 100 since 2001, when he entered the poll at the 27th position. In 2002 he climbed up to the 5th position, and in 2003, 2004 and 2005 he was listed at the third spot. In 2006 he moved up to the second place, until eventually in 2007 he topped the Poll with a number one position. And this year he did it again.

2007 and 2008 have undoubtedly been 2 of the busiest, yet exciting years for Armin van Buuren. Next to hosting his award winning, weekly radio show ‘A State of Trance’, with an estimated 25 million listeners, Armin has released his third artist album ‘Imagine’ in North America on Ultra Records (Armada). The album made history as the first Dutch dance album to debut at number one on the Dutch album chart. Armin also toured the world with his ‘Armin Only: Imagine’ concerts, with the sold out first edition in the Jaarbeurs venue in Utrecht, providing more than16.000 party people a stunning show and exclusive 9 hour set.

Armin’s reaction: “For me this is an incredible honor, because it’s an award from the votes of so many dance music lovers that went online to vote. I‘d like to take the opportunity to thank everyone for their support. Thank YOU!“

Ultra Records’ artists maintained a heavy showing in the illustrious UK dance publication’s annual poll. Dutch phenomenon, Tiësto, who maintained the polls number one position 3 years in a row remains at number 2, and stellar trance production and DJ trio Above & Beyond take number 4. David Guetta’s Pop Life success and non-stop touring places the French native at number 5, and Dutch trance maven Ferry Corsten pulls in number 6. Sasha, who released his acclaimed ‘The emFire Collection’ on Ultra earlier this year retains his long standing amongst the Top 10 at number 7. Markus Schulz’ relentless touring pushes him to the number 8 position.

Newcomer to the poll is deadmau5 – riding high on a string of incredible productions and his debut album RANDOM ALBUM TITLE already earning him the award for Producer of the Year from successful digital retailer Beatport – he debuts on the chart at number 11. Sander van Doorn, whose powerful debut album ‘Supernaturalistic’ released on Ultra Records, takes number 13. Paul Oakenfold, who has always maintained high positioning on the poll, claims 14, and house producer, Axwell hits at number 20.

Other Ultra Records’ artists charting this year include Eric Prydz at 21, Fedde Le Grand at 29, Benny Benassi at 39, Roger Sanchez at 57 and Sander Kleinenberg at 60. Congrats to all Ultra Records’ artists for their continued success!
