Scottish singer-songwriter Calvin Harris must be glad he abandoned performing live for taking a stand behind the decks, after topping the Forbes magazine list of the world's highest-paid DJs.

The 29-year-old Scottish star, who holds the record for the most UK Top Ten hits from a studio album (nine) took home $US46 million ($A50.71 million) over the past year.

Harris pushed last year's list-topper Tiesto into second place, with the Dutch record-spinner earning $US32 million.

They were followed by French house music producer David Guetta, the trio Swedish House Mafia and Canada's Deadmau5.

Swedish DJ Avicii is the youngest on the list, pocketing $US20 million at just 23 years old, followed by Afrojack ($US18 million) and fellow Dutchman Armin van Buuren who took home $US17 million, while US Djs Skrillex and Kaskade rounded out the Top Ten.
