It’s rather alarming how much being a musician amps up a gentleman’s (or lady’s) “sexiness” level, but there’s no denying it’s true. Musicians have been beacons of much affection for as long as music has existed, perhaps (this is my psych major talking here) because of our innate emotional connection to music, or maybe by some grace of god the handsome gene is connected to the music affinity gene. Who knows. Although I’m more particular to band dudes (drummers, specifically) there’s quite a few devilishly handsome gentlemen amongst the DJ/Producer world that are worthy of the ample female attention they get.

So here we are, as a preliminary chart to GDD’s “Best of 2012″…. Three Wise’s and my list of the “sexiest” artists amongst the electronic sphere. Not only are the below gentlemen considerably easy on the eyes, but their personalities, charisma, wit, and duh, MUSIC all add to culminate what I’d like to call “sexy”. Keep doing your thing, boys. Check out the list all the way to #1 after the jump (my votes in blue, Three Wise’s in red) and let us know where your most handsome DJs rank! -Laura.

Major Lazer has become a movement. Amidst touring the world with their massive collective and spreading the noise, Mad Decent chief Diplo and his new partners in crime Jillionaire and Walshy Fire teamed up this year with UK bass aficionado Flux Pavilion to create “Jah Not Partial,” putting the Rasta spirit into a heavy dub driven anthem. The music video for the track premiered today, focusing on the life & times of the group at festivals and road trips far and wide. Oh, Mister Marshall…

Major Lazer on

Hailing from Stockholm, the 19th year old prodigal producer Phat Deuce as already dropped more than his name on the electronic music scene – and with releases already on Mad Decent project label Jeffree’s and Laidback Luke’s label Mixmash, he’s doing something right. As a token of gratitude for reaching 1k soundcloud followers, he is giving away his big bouncer “SHIT.” I know the name screams class, but fans of Diplo and Mad Decent styles will go ham for this one.
