We could argue that back in 2000 the DJ magazine Top100 DJ list was perhaps far more relevant than it is today. Does anybody really even look at it anymore ? is it still a gauge for what's really happening out there in clubland. Y2K was a phenomenal year for Progressive House and below is a snapshot of the top20. We have Sasha admitting his style is "drunken progressive house", Digweed calling Danny Tenaglia "incredible" and Danny Howells hailing Patrick Cowley's mix of I Feel Love as a firm favourite. For me the best thing about this chart was seeing the 'prog house don' - Anthony Pappa make an appearance, arguably should have been a much higher placing for such a technically proficient DJ but all the same he was there and boy did he bring something special to the table. Read on and enjoy the nostalgia - The greatest DJs in the world Y2K.
