Find out more about famous DJs, including Idris Elba, Avicii, Marshmello, Pauly D and Erykah Badu.

Can you imagine a Saturday night party without foot-tapping music and a talented DJ to mix and play a sequence of exciting music tracks all night? No one can! Parties would be incomplete and a lot less fun if we didn’t have any DJ in our midst! And it’s not just parties that DJs liven up! Disc Jockeys can be of various kinds, radio DJ and club DJ being the most common. While radio DJs, also known as RJs, mix and play music for their live radio audiences, club DJs perform at parties, nightclubs or music festivals. Richard "Richie" Hawtin, a three-time DJ Awards winner, is a Canadian DJ counted amongst the most famous DJs of all time. Another prominent DJ who left his mark in the field was Larry Levan. He experimented with drum machines and synthesizers in his live shows to create innovative music and ushered in the era of electronic, post-disco sound. Calvin Harris, Kaskade, Skrillex, and Martin Garrix are a few other popular DJs. This section gives you information about the life and works of famous DJs.
