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.

Hot Since 82 on
Here’s some serious fire from Leeds-based producer, Hot Since 82. Since listening to his Hurt You EP that I got amongst a stack of promo CDs in Miami last March, I can’t seem to get enough of this dude. Forty Shorty is HS82′s latest project — a deep, bassline-filled 2-track EP out on the famed Get Physical imprint this week. While the title track definitely gets a firm pat on the back, it’s the second track “Like You” that really is the business for me. A rolling bassline rounds out the track paired with swirling vocal repetition, perfect for late-night, drughaus hours. Pick it up. √+
The ever-groovy Russ Chimes released the well-received House track, “Back 2 You,” on the Positiva imprint at the end of July via Beatport, and now the single is slated for a September 17th release on Positiva/Virgin which will feature a bundle of new remixes — including this incredibly tasteful rework from Leeds producer, Hot Since 82. With tracks already released on Moda Black, Noir, Defected, and now this superb remix for Virgin, Hot Since 82 should be a name you’ll be seeing more of in coming months. √+

Hot Since 82‘s “Sundown” came out back in April, but I recently discovered it for myself, and it’s too good not to post. With a great after-hours vibe and plenty of bass, it’s a tune that just keeps on giving. I’ve also included his most recent release, a remix of Los Suruba’s “Mantis,” which will easily satisfy your need for grooves. Hot Since 82 seems to be an awesome deep house talent and we should all stay updated on his future releases.
GO DEEP after the jump!
