This was definitely an emotional weekend for electronic music fans.

After crowning David Guetta as this year’s #1 DJ, they revealed that Charlotte de Witte has taken the first spot in the Alternative Top 100 DJs. The victory of the promising Belgian techno star is an important milestone for her career, for DJingas a female star and for the reputation of that music genre.


Charlotte de Witte will come to Ukraine for the first time as part of the Technobal, on February 19.


DJ Mag’s Alternative Top 100 DJs, powered by Beatport, is an annual ranking addressed to the biggest house and techno artists. The poll is the result of the cross-referencing between the votes in the Top 100 DJs poll and Beatport’s sales data, on those genres.


Charlotte de Witte dethrones the king Carl Cox who has been acclaimed as the winner since the inception of this poll, in 2018. Furthermore, she becomes the first female artist to win a DJ Mag poll, following in the footsteps of Smokin’ Jo, that won the title back in 1992, when the DJ Mag Top 100 was still in-house voting. Compared to the main DJ Mag Top 100 with 12 women, the Top 100 alternative showcases 21 amazing female artists with five of them in the top 10 alone: Nora En PurePeggy GouNina KravizAmelie Lens, and Charlotte de Witte.
