This is the second year that Forbes has released its highest-paid DJs list, and if you thought they were makin’ big bucks last year, then this year will really make your turntable spin.

Scottish producer Calvin Harris made a whopping $46 million, for starters (so maybe it’s time to come up with a more creative name, dude). Tiësto, deadmau5, and Skrillex all raked it in as well, with $32 million, $21 million and $16 million, respectively.

And if you were feeling sorry for all the “Jersey Shore” peeps whose 15 minutes evaporated a year ago, hold tight to the knowledge that DJ Pauly D is doing just fine for himself, with the $13 million he made DJing events last year. Day-amn!
