Voted the best DJ in the world by Resident Advisor readers for the past four years...

To put that in perspective he has been voted the best DJ in the world as many times as his native Germany have won the World Cup.

Dixon

On announcing Dixon's fourth win in 2016, RA wrote:

"2016 has been a year of shocks and upheavals, but Dixon clearly didn't get the memo. Many of you might have predicted this—after all, it's the Berliner's fourth gold medal in a row. Even so, it's hard to overstate the scale of this achievement. No other DJ has ever exercised such dominance over the top spot. For someone who tours relentlessly and helms one of dance music's most popular record labels, Steffen Berkhahn always looks incredibly relaxed. His social media presence is disarmingly human and self-deprecating, with plenty of goofy snaps. In the booth, he's always perfectly composed, no matter if it's the first or the fourth gig of the weekend.

There's no safer pair of hands in the scene. Technically flawless but with a wild streak, his sets, especially the all-nighters, are atmospheric, otherworldly and reliably unpredictable. You'd think that would be a hard act to maintain, but over time Dixon only gets better. The same goes for the various projects he's involved in, from the almighty Innervisions to the label's one-of-a-kind Lost In A Moment parties. As things stand, it's hard to imagine anyone stealing his crown."
