Another Marquee resident named Top DJ

Kaskade has had his run as America’s Best DJ, as named by DJ Times, and now it’s time for someone new to hoist the entirely impractical gold-plated Pioneer mixer. That someone will be Markus Schulz, who will spin Oct. 7 at Marquee—where he’s a resident, just like Kaskade—in honor of his win. Wynn residents Steve Aoki and Skrillex took second and third, respectively. The rest of the Top 10 ran down with BT, Z-Trip, Porter Robinson, Wolfgang Gartner, A-Trak, Diplo and Bassnectar. Please adjust your DJ Power Rankings charts accordingly.

Longtime house fans are up in arms in the Twittersphere over the direction the genre has taken, often debating: What is true house music? One of the genre’s recognized originators, Jesse Saunders, hopes to appease them—and to enlighten others—with the Pure House Music Festival on Sept. 29 at the Clark County Amphitheater.
