Are DJ's pop artists?

Recommended Posts

I wouldn't call 'em Pop artists. Pop music is popular, as in mainstream, in my opinion. DJ's are still a niche group. They are popular in their crowd, but hardly mainstream.

I checked out the DJ Timbo track. It's alright, but it just doesn't really grab my attention. Nothing unique about it.

I have to agree, i think there is a big difference between pop music and a Dj's music. Pop music stands on its own but Dj's music is more for club and special social settings...

I dont necessarily call them pop artists...they are doing what djs are suppose to do which is to mix music whether it be pop songs or underground songs. DJs like DJ AM became are really popular but you cant label him as a pop artist for becoming famous.

The most interesting and innovative music for me these days is in the electronic genre - and yes, i think DJs are artists.

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
