Mixmag have released their Top 20 DJs of 2016, with The Black Madonna earning the top spot.
“At times The Black Madonna felt like the antidote to all the bad news 2016 held. Days after Bowie died she reaffirmed our faith in music with a set at Bugged Out! Weekender featuring an amazing mix of ‘Under Pressure’ and ‘Spastik’, continuing with sets at Glasto, Dekmantel and Space. In a dark year, TBM shone like the sun.”
Upon hearing the news, Marea wrote “I’ve just been named the Mixmag DJ of the year. The list of honorees is a list of people I love and admire. I want to especially congratulate my sister Honey Dijon and all the other capable, brilliant, talented women on the list. There are 6 in the top 20 and that means more than I can say.”
The January 2017 issue is out now.
