Help Z-Trip Become "America's Best DJ"

The PHX's Z-Trip is already considered by many to be the "Godfather of the mash-up." But could the 38-year-old also be the best DJ in the whole damn U.S.?

That's entirely up to you...and the rest of the online world, for that matter.

The Tripster s in the running for the annual "America's Best DJ" contest sponsored by industry publication DJ Times. He's currently in the Top 10, competing against 99 other big names in the biz, including the likes of Steve Aoki, DJ AM, Dieselboy, and the Crystal Method. (The only other cat with a Phoenix connection is Markus Schulz, who held residencies at various Valley spots in the early 90s).

Fans can vote online until August 9, and the award will be doled out on September 12 at a boffo blowout in Sin City.
