If i would have to choose I'll say tiesto because he is one of the few DJ"s that can have a crowd of 90.000+ . And he has been known to be the best in he's music . here's some feedback:

born Tijs Michiel Verwest [tɛɪs mixiɫ vərʋɛst] on January 17, 1969)[2] is a Dutch DJ and record producer of electronic dance music. Although he has used many aliases in the past, he is best known for his work as DJ Tiësto.[3] On his latest productions, however, he has dropped the "DJ" label and is now known simply as "Tiësto", an alias which is a twist on his childhood nickname.[4]

In 1997 he founded the label Black Hole Recordings with Arny Bink, where he released the famous Magik and In Search of Sunrise CD series. In 1999 he collaborated with Ferry Corsten to create Gouryella. The act released songs that are regarded in the club circuit as all-time classic trance songs. In 2001 he released his first solo album In My Memory which gave him several major hits that launched his career as well as his remix of Delerium's "Silence" featuring Sarah McLachlan which exposed him to more mainstream audiences. As his popularity rose in the early 2000s he became the first DJ to perform to a large crowd without any other DJs or opening acts. He was crowned the "World’s No.1 DJ" 3 consecutive times by DJ Magazine from 2002 through 2004.[5]

Just after releasing his second studio album Just Be in 2004, at the Summer Olympics he performed live at the opening ceremony in Athens, Greece becoming the first DJ to play live on stage at an Olympics Games. Songs he made specially for the Olympics were mixed together and released as the mix compilation Parade of the Athletes later that year. He was appointed Officer of the Order of Orange-Nassau in 2004 by Queen Beatrix. He was chosen as the official ambassador for the Dance4Life foundation in May 2006, and released the song "Dance4Life" with Maxi Jazz to help spread the awareness of HIV/AIDS. In April 2007 Tiësto launched both his radio show Tiësto's Club Life on Radio 538 in the Netherlands and released his fourth studio album titled Elements of Life. The album reached number one on the Dutch album chart as well on "Billboard Top Electronic Albums" in the U.S. and received a nomination for a Grammy Award in 2008.[6] Tiësto is set to release his fifth studio album called Kaleidoscope in October 2009.

Danger Mouse
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Danger_Mouse)

Excerpt from wikipedia:

Brian Joseph Burton, better known by his stage name Danger Mouse, (born July 29, 1977) is an American artist and producer. He came to prominence in 2004 when he released The Grey Album, which combined acappellas from Jay-Z's The Black Album with instrumentals from the album The Beatles (also known as The White Album).

He formed Gnarls Barkley with Cee-Lo Green and produced their albums St. Elsewhere and The Odd Couple. He produced the second Gorillaz album, 2005's Demon Days, as well as Beck's 2008 record, Modern Guilt. He was nominated for a Grammy Award in the Producer of the Year category.

I have to agree Danger Mouse is pretty awesome. Other notable artists who spin from time to time Ellen Allien, Audion, Miss Kittin, Alec Empire (sometimes), Ladytron.

Personally I think artists like Tiësto and Ferry Corsten are absolute garbage. Overproduced Trance crap. If you know how to make a thick detuned saw wave with a synthesizer and have a rudimentary understanding of rhythm (you can keep time with a 4/4 beat), then you can make Trance. Half the time these guys are waving their hands in the air or jumping up and down while their gear just sits there and plays some pre-mixed garbage.
