Poll 2022: Marshmello

From: USA

DJ style: High-energy melodies.

Best known for: Defying genres, and his helmet.

Mask-wearing DJ/producer Marshmello continued to cross genres in his productions while delivering DJ sets to some of the world's biggest audiences in 2022. His Khalid collaboration 'Numb' has made the biggest impact of his own releases this year, racking up almost 20 million views on YouTube since its release in June — it has also been remixed by ALOK, KC Lights and DJ YUKI.

Marshmello continues to tease his much-anticipated 'Joytime IV' — the fourth instalment in his album series that started in 2016 — which he announced with the release of 'BeFoRe U' in March. The 11-track album is said to feature artists including Chicago drill rapper Polo G, Detroit MC 42 Dugg and the late Juice WRLD. The helmet has been seen everywhere from the F1 to the NFL in 2022, while Marshmello also ran a subscription service for his fans — which he affectionately calls his Mello Gang — and released a watermelon strawberry-flavoured limited edition Coca Cola in June. No, seriously.
