Miami’s newcomer, Jordan Postrel, kicks off the GDD™ Guest Mix series in 2014 with an ace offering. Citing influences like Richie Hawtin, KiNK, Hot Since 82, and Claude VonStroke, he emerges out of underground territory that has helped shape his productions into tracks like his remix of The East Flatbush Project’s “Tried By 12,” among others. Postrel now flexes his DJ talent for an engaging 1-hour mix of house and tech-house that serves as an impressive addition to any mix archive.
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.
Hearing about a new record from Booka Shade will always put a big smile on my face. It’s been three years since the duo from Frankfurt released their last album, More!, but Walter and Arno are back with a dozen new tracks for their 5th studio album, Eve, due out digitally November 1st via Berlin-based Embassy One Records.
Today, we’ve been given the first single from the new record, and it’s gotten me truly excited and energized for what Eve has to offer. “Love Inc” is a delicate, precise club jam. Not overbearing and perfectly balanced, the single displays the genius that Booka Shade has always delivered over the years. As if that wasn’t enough, “Love Inc” will be released as an EP October 4th ahead of the album release, featuring 4 remixes from Hot Since 82, Emperor Machine, Richie G, and Booka Shade themselves. √++

Hot Since 82 is having a banner year, and the man from Leeds is showing absolutely no signs of slowing. So far this year he’s already had a couple chart topping hits, and I’m claiming his latest remix of Green Velvet to sit comfortably atop the ranks when it sees a release on Circus Recordings. With a commanding bassline that churns under the haunting vocals of Green Velvet, this tune is primed to be doing the rounds across the globe.
