Now entering its 9th year, America’s Best DJ fosters the growth of US DJ & nightlife culture by encouraging dance-music fans to support their favorite US-based DJs in a quest to crown the USA’s top jock. At the end of each summer, one DJ will be voted America’s Best DJ.


Nozomu Matsumoto founded Pioneer as an audio products manufacturer in 1938, making speakers in his garage. Fast-forward to the present, where Pioneer is a world leader in electronics products for the car, home and business markets, respected for their role in introducing such innovations as the consumer laser disc, car CD player, GPS car navigation, DVD-Video player, high definition plasma display, organic electroluminscent display and much more. To this day, Pioneer still develops and manufactures innovative and high-tech entertainment and electronic products.

Pioneer’s DJ division is a market leader in the dance music industry, with nearly every modern club featuring their industry-standard CDJ-2000 CD player, DJM-900 mixer, or variations thereof.

The mobile DJ might enjoy recent offerings such as their DDJ-SX, S1, or T1 , while the bedroom or entry-level DJs have been known to take a liking to their XDJ-R1 and XDJ-AERO wireless DJ systems. Pioneer DJ also offers a wide array of other CD/DVD/media players, DJ controllers, mixers, effectors, speakers, and headphones.

Pioneer DJ has provided four pairs of their flagship HDJ-2000 professional DJ headphones as well as one of their venerable DJM-250 mixers as prizes for fans that connect with America’s Best DJ’s social properties (keep an eye on our Facebook and Twitter pages for weekly prize giveaways throughout the summer).


Established in 1988, DJ Times is America’s first magazine for professional DJs. Every month, more DJs turn to DJ Times than any other industry publication for information on the newest products and emerging technologies, for catching up on the latest trends and tunes, and for advice on how to go further in the craft.

Club DJs, mobile DJs, remixers, turntablists, producers, laptop DJs, radio jocks—DJs of all types and styles, all read DJ Times. The publication which reports on the trends of the industry must also help define and shape those trends, and DJ Times is precisely that magazine.
