Ah, another year, another round of Gotta Dance Dirty’s roundup of the year’s ‘sexiest’ DJs from NYC’s very own Three Wise as well as yours truly. What started as a joke turned in to a mini internet frenzy and more importantly ignited a discussion of to what makes a DJ ‘sexy’. 2013 was a big leap for dance music, and aiding this leap was a fine selection of boys and girls who in different forms and ways got the world excited about music. It’s more than just looks, it’s more than how many groupies want to send you naked snapchats. So much more. To be a sexy DJ you have to ultimately hold your own, to be identifiable and recognizable amongst the masses as someone predominately good at their job, have their own sense of fashion, humor, and philosophies, someone who is confident in who they are and what they are capable of. In this sense, we’ve gathered our favorite ten DJs that have made an imprint on us this year, sparked a sense of excitement and wonder in our eyes, ears, and hearts.
So without further ado you can find our selection of the ten sexiest DJs of the year after the jump, my selections in BLUE and Three Wise’s in RED.

GDD has decided to put a new spin on our weekly Dirts, and instead of pairing up internally we’re branching out and pairing up with artists. So every Thursday, hop on board with us and some of our favorite artists – where you’ll get your weekly dose of 100% free tracks from us and a cool little selection of music that gives you a bit of insight into the minds of the DJs and producers you know and love.
I’ve partnered up with none other than one of my best friends, probably one of the funniest and coolest dudes in the business, the #10 gentleman on my Sexiest DJs list: Max from Prince Club. He’s the DJ version of Tom Hardy and smokes more than a chimney, and because of that we present his top 5 tracks to smoke to. Click the jump to see some of my favorite free tracks of the moment, and check out Max’s favorite stoner jams as well. Enjoy!
Mykki Blanco is far from your average MC, but damn he’s been putting out some fire tracks in the past 6 months. Teaming up with producers like Brenmar, Sinden, Flosstradamus, and Matrixxman, Mykki takes spacey bass beats and adds some incredible, unique raps on top. Mykki and Matrixxman have teamed up once again for the latest track, ‘Feeling Special,’ which definitely carries on from where their last collaboration, ‘Haze.Boogie.Life,’ left off. Mykki just kicked off a massive tour last night here in LA, so check the track below and get the full tour schedule after the jump. √+
2013 has only just begun and Salva is already having a hell of a year. After announcing his primetime slot on BBC Radio 1′s “In New DJs We Trust” (along with the wholly deserving Brodinski), running train on the blogs by dropping a collab with Brenmar “Let Me Bang” and an early preview of “Drop That B”, finishing a quick US tour, and laying down a rowdy set to a massive post-Grammy’s crowd last night at Drai’s, he’s dropping his first EP of the year Odd Furniture… and doing it early.
Made up of heavy ones, light ones, deep ones, and dirty ones – GDD big wigs Jonah Berry and BONES bring you the 103rd edition of the dirt, with (10) freebies both classic and fresh to add to your arsenal. Dig in kids….

Well what originally started as entirely a joke between young Three Wise & myself quickly escalated into one of the most popular posts on GottaDanceDirty…. and for that we’d like to thank SEXY DJs and the apparent thousands of people who want to know who they are. Any way, we’re back & although there’ll be slightly less pretty pictures for you to look at this week there’s definitely no shortage of sexy jams. — Laura.

GDD™ fav, Brenmar, is giving away his latest original, “BF/GF,” today accompanied with artwork and an interesting new “love messaging service” from designers, Pinar&Viola. You may have seen work from this Amsterdam duo before on Diplo & Oliver Twizt’s “Go” single artwork or music video, but if you’re not familiar I’d highly encourage you to check out their portfolio. Their designs are inundated with “colossal visual gestures, hyper intricate detail and excessive embellishments” and “by transposing, fusing and altering [the design's] elements, [they] aim to subvert conventional compositions.” Sparkly, weird, and wildly sporatic would be some apt adjectives I’d use to describe their work, and the new messaging service, 4Eva, will provide members with 10 intimate messages/photos full of love. Sign up here and download Brenmar’s “BF/GF” below. Quirky and twerky.
