For those of you who don't know, Tuff Questions is our regular interview series that sees us asking DJs a succession of incredibly tough, but ultimately pointless questions. We ask the same questions of every artist, and after grilling over 40 DJs we figured it was high time to review the results and present some findings.

I have done a load of interviews and this was genuinely one of the most fun and interesting ones I have done yet! So BIG thank you. Love, Gok xx

Starting with one of the least controversial questions, the Godfather of House music is far ahead of the pack with 8 DJs naming him House Music's prophet, with second place going to Larry Levan with 3 nominations and a 4-way split for 3rd place between Larry Heard, Kerri Chandler, Carl Cox, and MK.

The field a lot of respondents didn't want to win, but we have a feeling that the ultimate winners, Solardo will wear this honour with pride. A whopping 5 of their peers nominated them for Biggest Party Animals in dance music.

If you could only play one record for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Both David Morales and Monki selected Bill Withers - "Lovely Day" as the track they'd play for the rest of their life.

And the only other track to get a double nomination is Stardust - "Music Sounds Better With You", which was selected by Tchami and Kideko.

The people have spoken

By far our favourite question, and a very close race, but green cloud of gas when you far just pipped eggy burbs to the post. What's most surprising about this one was that 3 DJs asked if they could have both.
