DJ Blackbook

In January 2008, the magazine created the "DJ Blackbook" which is a database of DJs, producers and promoters. It was released online and in a printed version with over 10000 contacts.

DJ Mag Top 100 Polls

The magazine publishes two annual "top 100" lists, one for DJs and one for nightclubs. As of 2010 both polls are based on a public vote. The DJ poll is seen as important enough in the industry for DJs.[2] Trackitdown.net formed a collaboration with the 2008 DJ poll, saying "By offering each voter a free track to download from our catalogue of 350,000 titles from over 10,000 labels, we can demonstrate how easy it is to find your favourite electronic music legally."[3] The awards party for the poll has traditionally been hosted at the Ministry of Sound nightclub in London. For the 2011 poll, the event was hosted outside of the UK for the first time in it's history, being staged at the Passenger Terminal Amsterdam (for boats and ferries), nearby Amsterdam Central train station. [4] It will form a part of 2011's edition of the Amsterdam dance event.
