Ten Richest DJs: From Pauly D to Deadmau5, Swedish House Mafia, Skrillex, and Tiesto
6. Deadmau5: $11.5 Million Per Year
Why is Mr. Joel Zimmerman (AKA Deadmau5) so worried about "a piece of shit" like DJ Pauly D? Maybe because tbe King Rat hates that he only makes $500,000 more than a reality-TV-star-turned-professional-button-pusher.
5. Steve Aoki: $12 Million Per Year
So what if little Stevie is an heir to daddy Rocky's Benihana fortune? He charges less a night and works harder every day than all these other millionaire jocks, playing over 200 shows, running his own Dim Mak label, and collecting 2012's fifth most epic EDM income.
