"God Is a DJ" is a song by British group Faithless. It was released in August 1998 as the lead single from their album, Sunday 8PM. The single reached number six in the United Kingdom and also reached number one on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart for one week in September 1998.

The song was written by Maxi Jazz, Rollo, Sister Bliss and Jamie Catto. Faithless won a Brit Award for Best British Act in 1999 for their work on the song and other tracks on Sunday 8PM. Billboard claimed in an article in early 1999 that many people involved with dance music thought that "God Is a DJ" should have been nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Recording of 1998.[1]

The song re-entered the UK chart in 2005 following the release of Forever Faithless and reached number 66.

Critical reception

Larry Flick from Billboard wrote that Faithless are "melding electronic elements into a trance-disco beat." He noted further that vocalist Maxi Jazz "strides atop the track with a hypnotic chant that boldly declares the club a church. As he rants "this is my church," organ lines swoop and surround him as the beat pumps with intense authority."[2] Daily Record described it as a "pumping, hypnotic track".[3]
