Ten Reasons Rolling Stone's "25 DJs That Rule the Earth" Is Total Bullshit
Porter Robinson Makes the Cut at All?
Right after Daft Punk -- who actually bridged the gap between kids into guitars and kids into four-on-the-floor, making this whole American EDM explosion possible -- comes Porter Robinson. Who is Porter Robinson? Some kid Skrillex signed that will cease to have mattered five years from now. None of this makes sense, no explanation is given.
Carl Cox at No. 22?
In line with shitting on legends, Rolling Stone places the hefty-in-more-ways-than-one Carl Cox in the less-than-stellar 22 spot. Because we live in Miami, we realize that Carl Cox rules over Ultra, and ruling over Ultra alone gets you into the Top Ten. Plus, bro has mad swag all over Ibiza and satellite radio. How are some of these underground names ruling harder than the man? Oh, sorry, Rolling Stone doesn't have to explain anything.
