DJs are generally known for their background work of scratching, looping, break beats, mashing house music, punch phrasing etc.
But these days they are also in the forefront of the music industry by releasing hit singles and even albums.
Financial magazine Forbes has recently released a list of top-earning DJs in the world.
Calvin Harris was crowned the world’s top-earning DJ, according to its newly-unveiled list of the world’s highest paid DJs.
The rankings, based solely on the individual’s DJ income, placed Harris’s earnings this year in the vicinity of US$63 million, with fellow DJ Tiesto the closest runner-up on $38M.
Tiesto replaces David Guetta, who has been displaced to No.3 after earning $28M for his DJing in 2015, just over Zedd in fourth place with $24.5M.
Steve Aoki rounded out the top five on $23.5M, with others who made the list including Diplo ($23M), Skrillex ($20M), Kaskade ($19M), Martin Garrix ($16M), Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike ($15.5M), Afrojack ($15M), and Avicii ($14.5M).
