The Swedish House Mafia recently announced that they’re throwing a “Black Tie Rave” benefit concert in NYC to raise money for Hurricane Sandy relief efforts. According to Twitter, the gang pulled in over $400,000 during the first round of ticket sales last week.
The DJZ/10 is a collection of ten DJs that we think you should know about now. Some of them are already familiar to you, others you may have never heard of. The list is not based on (1) a secret computer algorithm, (2) social media popularity, or (3) payola. Every month or so we get together to decide if somebody from the broader A…Z directory is about to break out and should be included in the DJZ/10, or if somebody already on the list, for that matter, is “phoning it in” and deserved to be replaced by another DJ who is more worthy.×
