The results of the most definitive dance music poll are in...

Well, the results are in, the votes have been counted, and we can finally reveal who has emerged triumphant in the first (or is it last?) year of the millennium.

For the most part, it seems to be reflecting what most of us here at NMEDANCE.COM have been wibbling on about all year - that 2001 is going to be the year when progressive trance takes mainstream trance by the horns and wrestle it, screaming, into submission.

As predicted when Muzik awarded him Outstanding Contribution at 1999's Ericsson Muzik Awards, Sasha has perhaps been the DJ who most dominated 2000, as the sound he and occasional DJ tag-team pal John Digweed reaped the rewards of the sound they've been championing for years finally coming into vogue. Sasha topped the poll for Best DJ by quite some margin, whileDiggers hasn't done too badly either, mind, coming fourth in the DJ poll, and with his ever successful Bedrock mid-weeker coming in second in the Best Underground Category and coming first in the Most Up For It Crowd category.

Elsewhere, Home's rising star Steve Lawler came up with the goods, scooping both the Best Underground DJ and, perhaps more tellingly, Brightest Hope For 2001 gongs, while Bent provided the real surprise, pipping Fatboy Slim to the album of the year post with their sublime 'Programmed To Love' missive. Whatever, to cast your eye over the most definitive dance music poll this side of 2001, get clicking! - Click here...
