LOS ANGELES: Dutch DJ Martin Garrix has grabbed the top spot in DJ Magazines "Top 100 DJs" for the time in a row.

The 22-year-old is only the third artist to accomplish that feat, behind fellow Dutchmen Armin van Buuren and Tiesto. Garrix was the youngest DJ to notch Number 1 in 2016 and retained the title in 2017, reports variety.com.

Garrix was awarded the trophy by DJ Mag managing director Martin Carvell on stage at the Amsterdam Arena during the Amsterdam Dance Event.

The DJ and producer first garnered fame with "Animals" in 2013, an electronic dance music (EDM) track that charted globally and led to him becoming the youngest producer to have a song reach no. 1 on the electronic music store Beatport.

The Dutch artist has worked with EDM artists like Afrojack and David Guetta, as well as mainstream pop artists such as Usher for 2015's "Don't look down" and Bebe Rexha for "In the name of love" in 2016.
