10 Best DJs to stalk on Instagram
Just when you thought that the Valencia filter was all you needed to look instantly cool, along come these DJs popping bottles of Grey Goose, exiting private planes, and partying with the hottest peeps on this earth – all with #nofilter (sigh!).
This is life beyond the decks and although it makes our food pics look embarrassing, we can’t help but to press follow on these cool kids to see what they get up to after the last beat drops...
Boys Noize (@boysnoize)
Selfie? Check. Selfie on a private plane? Check. Alex Ridha sure knows how to cause envy among his 67,000 followers. Between ridiculously drool-worthy shots behind the decks playing out to thousands of people, Boys Noize also likes to rub salt further into the wound with pics of studio time with Aluna George and Diplo as well as showing an overflowing box of new Nike kicks. Playing homage to his German roots and their love of all things Knightrider, you’ll also find the odd David Hasselhoff snap thrown in and no one hassles the Hoff quite like Boys Noize!
Scrolling through Diplo’s feed you realise that this is definitely someone you need to be friends with. His account is awash with crazy antics, animations and adventures, all with that very Diplo vibe! Standout shots include superimposing his head onto everything from a pic of Mary Kate Olsen, to a 16th Century knight. This one definitely gets points for creativity…
Calvin Harris (@Calvinharris)
One thing is for sure, Calvin Harris is having a damn good time at the moment. His account is covered in unbelievable shots from the various festivals and gigs he has been playing at recently. But behind all that, this DJ loves a good selfie or two – not to mention the odd snap with a ridiculously good looking woman. Our favs on this account have to be the shots of him and his ‘missus’ Rita Ora as well as his poses in front of some very nice looking cars.
Aussie boy Flume is absolutely killing it at the moment and by looking at his Instagram account we can see why. This hugely talented 22-year-old loves to post shots in the studio as well as all the behind-the-scenes snaps from his recently played gigs. Currently conquering America, make sure you look out for his pics from Coachella as well as the odd cute dog shot. What made us love Flume even more was that he too had a plane selfie.... but only in business class (a year or two and we’re sure he’ll be at boys Noize’s private plane status!).
Stafford Brothers (@staffordbrothers)
These Gold Coast boys are looooving their LA lifestyle, and their Instagram is packed with pics of them doing what they do best – partying! Repping their Aussie roots we love the shots of blow up boxing kangaroo’s (especially when their guarding drinks and hanging with lingerie clad hotties). This talented pair are also privy to the odd photobomb as well as some pretty hilarious videos. Check them out...
This famously sober American mega producer is still having one hell of a time on the lemonades. Backstage shots are paired with pics of him with Calvin Harris in Ibiza and Zedd and the Grammys. In true Instagram style, this producer loves to post pics of sunsets and what he’s eating. But since it comes from Kaskade we admit his shots are that much cooler than ours…
Richie Hawtin (@richiehawtin)
If you’re not following this legend yet, then get onto it STAT! This account is like a family album of all the techno gang including Seth Troxler, Magda and Villalobos as well as Grimes, Boys Noize and Carl Cox. There are plenty of crazy globetrotting pics and tomfoolery along the way and the best news? Not a meme in sight!
Dillon Francis (@dillonfrancis)
There is no need to explain but this is what you can expect from Dillon Francis’s Instagram account: Cats, sloths and his face superimposed on a variety of objects from the pope and pickles, to a dolphin! It’s really just an album of the internet’s finest work, with a few pics of festivals thrown in.
Anna Lunoe (@annalunoe)
This Aussie DJ/producer is living it large over in the States and having a huge amount of fun. Not only can she make some pretty amazing music, this talented Sydneysider also has some pretty amazing style and even more amazing captions to go with her pics. Funny, talented AND can take a good pic – this girl is the whole package!
This is one account that every time we look at it, we realise we will never be as cool as Afrojack! Yes there are a lot of private plane shots, festival pics and fast car images, but what really gets us is his pics with his mum. We also give this Dutch lord the award for the most amount of selfies (but when you’re Afrojack that’s totes fine, right?).
