DC Clubbing Top 50 DJ Poll

Voting Open Tuesday March 6 – Tuesday March 20

About:

Inspired by the DJ Mag Top 100, the DCC Top 50 aims to shed light on the rising volume of DJ talent based in the DC/MD/VA region.

With home grown acts like Dubfire, Sharam, Saeed Younan, Tittsworth, Volta Bureau, Nadastrom, Andrew Bayer, BT, Alvin Risk, Thievery Corporation, DJ Enferno, Breakfast and Pleasurekraft having established themselves on an international level; this poll has been reserved for the local residents, rising stars and future of clubbing in Washington DC.

DJ Selection:

For the first year, we scoured DC looking to draw the most comprehensive list of mainstream, hip-hop, dance, underground, Latin and mash-up DJs possible. We reached out to club owners, promoters and long-time members of the DC nightlife community in order to ensure transparency.

If you or someone you know is not listed and should be, we apologize and have provided a write-in option. In order for a name to be added, you must have at least (10) people write it in the blank space provided. It will then automatically be added to the drop down list.

About Chuck Levin’s Washington Music Center

Chuck Levin’s Washington Music Center was founded in 1960 by Chuck and Marge Levin. The store was originally located at 12th and H Streets in downtown Washington, D.C. In April of 1968, that location destroyed due to fire in the riots of that same year, following the assassination of Martin Luther King. Two months later, operations resumed at the current location on Veirs Mill Road in Wheaton, Maryland.

Washington Music Center (popularly known as “Chuck’s”) occupies four warehouses and separate repair facilities in close proximity to the main store, as well as state of the art Pro Sound and Home Keyboard showrooms in a building adjacent to the main store. Chuck’s is truly a family operation, and a great deal of our success is directly attributed to the close working relationship of this family. In recent years, the original founders’ two sons, Alan and Robert, have taken over stewardship of the company.

Washington Music Center’s reputation for customer service, competitive pricing, large inventory, reliability, integrity, honesty, dependability, personal attention to details, good will, quality, and customer satisfaction remains unsurpassed by anyone in the retail music industry. For these reasons, Chuck’s has continued to grow and prosper continuously each and every year since it’s inception, winning top sales awards from several of the biggest manufacturers in the music industry. We couldn’t do it without a loyal customer base, and for this you have our utmost gratitude. Thanks everybody!
