Sasha "humbled" by Mixmag Greatest DJ Result

Sasha has been in touch with Mixmag to thank everyone who voted for him in the poll to find the Greatest DJ Of All Time . The DJ was voted at number 8 in the final results.

He said “ When it comes to dance music, everyone has a different viewpoint that comes from personal experience. My ‘greatest DJs of all time’ will always be the Haçienda DJs; Mike Pickering, Graeme Park and especially Jon Da Silva, who not only introduced me to this scene but taught me so much about DJing. While i thought it was an impossible task to create a poll for something so hard to quantify i am very humbled to be among such esteemed company in this top ten. The guys around me are all legends.”

What do you think about these results?

Mixmag Announces Results Of "Greatest DJ Of All Time" Poll - Tiesto won

Since September 2010, Mixmag, the world’s biggest clubbing and dance music magazine, has asked dance music fans around the world to vote in the only DJ poll that matters: The Greatest DJ Of All Time.
The huge online poll canvassed the views of hundreds of thousands of clubbers asking them to vote and debate a shortlist of DJs nominated by some of the biggest stars in dance music, the results are released today in the February 2011 issue of Mixmag.
The Top Ten Greatest DJs of All Time, as voted for by dance music fans across the globe, are:

1. Tiësto

2. Richie Hawtin
3. Sven Väth

4. Carl Cox
5. Ricardo Villalobos
6. Andy C
7. Paul van Dyk
8. Tony De Vit
9. Sasha
10. 2ManyDJs

Nick DeCosemo, Editor of Mixmag said:
"Obviously with any public poll the results reflect current popularity as much as overall contribution, but we think that the top 10 reflects a great spread of dance music genres and DJs over time; from techno, well represented by the likes of Richie Hawtin and Sven Väth to drum 'n' bass with Andy C or hard dance with the sadly departed Tony De Vit. And of course, Tiësto, undoubtedly the biggest DJ in history. For us, though, the result has always been secondary. The really great thing is the way that the process has sparked such passionate debate – from Facebook and Twitter to clubs and afterparties around the world. Also, we hope we've achieved our aim of opening clubbers' eyes to some of the lesser known pioneers of the scene, DJs like Francis Grasso, Larry Levan and even Jimmy Savile (all included in our shortlist) who were so pivotal in creating the culture that we know and love today. We don't expect the debate to end here!"
A shortlist of 35 DJs were put together, with each nominee chosen by another big name from the world of dance music.
The nominees ranged from across the spectrum and history of dance music and included the likes of:
… Contemporary superstars such as Fatboy Slim, Tiësto, Richie Hawtin, 2ManyDJs, Erol Alkan, Carl Cox, Sven Väth, Paul van Dyk and Andy C
… Founding figures of disco like Francis Grasso and David Mancuso
… Original house DJ Larry Levan (championed by Arthur Baker)
… The godfathers of hip hop such as Grandmaster Flash and Kool Herc
… Paul Oakenfold and Sasha, the first of the superstar DJs
… NY warehouse legend François K (championed by dubstep pioneer Mala)
… The first person to set up two turntables in a club, Jimmy Savile!
