According to Google, the most popular DJ’s on the web are:

1. DJ Earworm

dj earworm united states of pop Most popular DJs on the Web according to Google

who he is: An San Francisco based mashup dj/producer/remixer

why he’s popular: I personally heard him several years ago before his mashups were being played on the radio.  His mashups are technically sound, precise and he does a good job of making the extra effort to drop in custom samples to round out the mix.  He rose in popularity from his billboard mashups that received (deservedly) national radio play around the nation, and even the world.  He went on to gain internet popularity, posting his mixes available for online downloads.

Here is an excerpt from his website, where he humbly explains what he does. I’m sure what he does is a little more complicated than the way he presents it:

“Basically, what I do is take a bunch of songs apart and put them back together again in a different way. I end up with tracks called mashups, which I post to this website.  I also DJ with my laptop.”

2.  DJ AM

dj am rip Most popular DJs on the Web according to Google

who he is: An American DJ who rocked the parties for hollywood celebrities with his eclectic mix of mainstream, 80′s, 90′s and rock blends.

why he was popular: While many have questioned his true djing techniques and artistry, it’s undeniable that his ability to rock the celebrity crowds till the early morn has what earned him a respectable legacy despite his unfortunate and untimely death.  He has worked with the likes of Will Smith and Madonna, and earned himself celebrity status on several shows including ‘The Entourage’ where he stars as himself.  He’s definitely got big shoes to fill.

“Adam Michael Goldstein (March 30, 1973 – August 28, 2009) was an American club DJ and musician better known as DJ AM. Goldstein was a member of the rock band Crazy Town, co-owner of a management company called Deckstar and worked on albums for Papa Roach, Madonna, and Will Smith, among others. He was a frequent collaborator with Travis Barker of Blink-182 and appeared on several television series.” — from his wiki entry

3.  DJ Tiesto

dj tiesto in search of sunrise Most popular DJs on the Web according to Google

who he is: A Dutch electronic DJ, producer, remixer

why he’s popular: Needs no real introduction with his “In Search of Sunrise Series” and ability to draw in crowds the size of stadiums. Here’s an excerpt from his website:

“Inspired by the likes of U2, he invested heavily in the live aspect of his sets, employing his own sound, light and visual crews, creating arena-friendly dance music spectaculars. In 1997 he formed his own label, Black Hole Recordings, to release both the records he made himself and ones made by likeminded electronica visionaries. He has been nominated for a Grammy, had worldwide hit singles (his remix of Delerium’s Silence featuring Sarah McLachlan; Dance4Life featuring Faithless’s Maxi Jazz), performed at the opening ceremony of the Athens Olympics with music he composed especially for the occasion, wowed the rock festival crowds at Coachella, and remixed the likes of The Killers, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Bloc Party. He is, in short, the biggest DJ in the world.”

4.  DJ Shadow

dj shadow Most popular DJs on the Web according to Google

who he is: A hugely popular underground hip hop dj/turntablist/producer

why he’s popular: He’s been credited for many things including the development of instrumental hip hop and pushing the envelopes for sampling and production of hip hop instrumentals.  DJ Shadow has worked with high profile artists such as Q-Tip, E-40, and Cut chemist along with his participation in the hugely popular DJ Hero game.  He even appeared on David Letterman in a performance role with Q-Tip.   From his website:

“DJ Shadow (born Josh Davis) is widely credited as a key figure in developing the experimental instrumental hip-hop style associated with the London-based Mo’ Wax label. Inspired by hip-hop’s early years, he then grew to absorb the heyday of crews like Eric B. & Rakim, Ultramagnetic MCs, and Public Enemy; groups which prominently featured DJs in their ranks.

Josh “Shadow” Davis had already been fiddling around with making beats and breaks on a four-track recorder while he was in high school in the NorCal cow-town of Davis, but it was during college that he co-founded his own Solesides label as an outlet for his original tracks. Hooking up with Davis’ few b-boys (including eventual Solesides artists Blackalicious and Lyrics Born) through the college radio station, Shadow began releasing the Hip-Hop Reconstruction mix tapes in 1991 and pressed his 17-minute beat-head symphony “Entropy” in 1993. His tracks spread widely through the DJ-strong hip-hop underground, eventually catching the attention of Mo’ Wax.”

5.  DJ Khaled

dj khaled we the best Most popular DJs on the Web according to Google

DJ Khaled We The Best Album Cover

who he is: A Hip Hop DJ, producer and record label executive who

why he’s popular: Nominated as DJ of the year multiple times by BET, DJ Khaled has worked with major hip hop artists such as Fat Joe, Drake, Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, Nas, Snoop Dogg, Ludacris, and Nelly.  Here’s an excerpt about him from his wikipedia entry (doesn’t seem to have a legitimate website:

“Khaled Bin Abdul Khaled (born November 26, 1975), better known by his stage name DJ Khaled, is an American record producer, radio personality, DJ, and record label executive. He is a radio host for the Miami-based urban music radio station WEDR and the DJ for the hip hop group Terror Squad. In 2006, Khaled released his debut album Listennn… the Album. Following were We the Best (2007), We Global (2008), and Victory (2010). In 2009, Khaled became the president of record label Def Jam South.”

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DJ_Khaled

Of course, these google results never represent the true popularity of DJ’s and even to realistically measure “popularity” of a DJ is truly impossible.  DJmag puts out a top 100 DJ’s in the world (mostly electronic dj’s) but even this list has stirred controversy.
