It’s been said that DJs are the new rockstars. Even if you don’t agree with that, you can’t argue with the kind of superstar money they’re pulling in. Forbes just put together the list of the highest paid DJs of the last year (June 1, 2012 through June 1, 2013) and it’s fairly insane. We don’t know how much every band member makes out there, but we’d guess a lot would dream of making Calvin Harris money.

1. Calvin Harris – $46 million

2. Tiesto – $32 million

3. David Guetta – $30 million

4. Swedish House Mafia – $25 million

5. Deadmau5 – $21 million

6. Avicii – $20 million

7. Afrojack – $18 million

8. Armin van Buuren – $17 million

9. Skrillex – $16 million (tie)

9. Kaskade – $16 million (tie)

11. Steve Aoki – $14 million

12. DJ Pauly D – $13 million (tie)

12. Diplo – $13 million (tie)

The Ridge is a modern, slim, front pocket wallet, made to declutter the modern lifestyle. The main compartment is an expandable card holder, for any and all forms of plastic payment and identification. Attached to that is your choice of a money clip or cash strap for when old fashioned paper money is your best option. Being on the smaller, compact side means the Ridge doesn’t encourage the typical flotsam and jetsam acquisition of the traditional leather bi-fold, with its faded receipts and unnecessary cards. The Ridge re-evaluates your everyday carry and gets rid of the bulk.
