I don't know about DJ Z-Trip being #1 or even coming close to being on the same level as DJ AM.
What I am glad to see is that he's using VINYL, which a majority of today's "out of the box DJ's" know nothing about. Give them Serato or Traktor, a laptop and they call themselves DJ's.

It'll be interesting to see how long DJ Z-Trip will hold this spot.

R.I.P. DJ AM

It's good to see Ztrip get some well deserved recognition. A master at rockin the party and a true artist of mixing.
