Today, we’ve put together a selection of our favorite Instagram DJ accounts for you to check out.
We’re starting off with a couple “duh” ones that you nonetheless may have forgotten to add (we’d be straight up neglectful to leave a couple of these off the list), then we’ll move on from there. Let’s go!
Norwegian musician Kyrre Gørvell-Dahll (“Kygo”) is all over YouTube and Soundcloud with over 1 billion combined views. His Instagram is well worth a follow, too, with some absolutely jawdropping shots of both performances and landscapes. There’s some artistry with the photography available here—plus, you’ll see guest appearances from the likes of The Weeknd in Barcelona (pictured).
As if we need to tell you, The Chainsmokers are an American DJ duo of Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart. They got so much radio play and are so wildly popular that you probably already follow them via most channels. But if you’re not low-key stalking them on Instagram, you should—these guys know how to have fun. There’s tons of jetsetting going on and behind-the-scenes shots are abundant af.
First gaining worldwide recognition by remixing songs by Zedd and Jack Ü, there’s good reason to follow @marshmellomusic—no one knows who the EDM producer is!
OK, that’s not really true any longer. He’s effectively been outed as American DJ Chris “Dotcom” Comstock. Still, there’s no official confirmation. Plus, he always wears a giant marshmallow helmet, and how many of the IG accounts you follow offer up that sort of visual?
Considered to be among the best Australia has to offer, brothers Matt and Chris Stafford hail from the Gold Coast but now rep LA. The first EDM act to sign with Cash Money Records, the Stafford Brothers are worth your Insta time because of stuff like this. And this. Really. They just love to have a good time, and you’ll have a good time following them.
Sydney-based DJ and producer Alex Sholler is pretty fresh on the scene, but you may as well get acclimated with her in advance. Initially a classical musician (rocking the cello), her debut album “Run” dropped in March 2015. Like the Stafford Brothers, she’s tops from the Land Down Under and has already collaborated with the likes of Wayne Coyne of The Flaming Lips on her track, “U Don’t Know.” Oh, and she’s pals with the mysterious/not-so-mysterious Marshmello.
Inspired by Swedish House Mafia, Daft Punk, and others, Dutch group Sick Individuals—composed of Rinze "Ray" Hofstee and Joep "Jim" Smeele—are blowing up. They’ve already offered official reworks for Avicii, Rihanna, Tiesto, David Guetta, Madonna, and Flo Rida, among others. Here they are playing Papaya Club in Zrce Beach, Novalja, Croatia.
