Tiesto failed to retain his crown for the 4th straight year and drops down to second with Armin Van Buuren holding on to his number 3 spot from Sasha. Other movement in the chart saw roadtripping legend Carl Cox move into the top ten while Paul Oakenfold drops to 11th. The big shakers this year were trance trio Above & Beyond jumping a massive 20 places to 19th and Richie Hawtin up 32 places to 12th while new entry Infected Mushroom stormed into 26th. Notable losers this year were Christopher Lawrence down 7 and Sander Kleinenberg down 8 but both remain in the exclusive top 20 club.

The announcement caps a great year for Van Dyk with his new album "The Politics of Dancing 2" receiving praise from the critics, us included. Be sure to listen in on Paul's latest mix set exclusively on InternetDJ and watch a video clip of the man himself DJ'ing in San Francisco.
