Who Are the Hottest DJs of 2012?

February 26, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 230

Not only do DJs have to be technically proficient, but they also have to understand how to read a crowd. If they are spinning for a group but failing to get their desired response, they need to know how to adjust on the fly to ensure the evening does not turn into a bust. If you are wondering who is on top of their game, here is a look at three of the hottest DJs of 2012:

Skrillex: Not only is Skrillex the undisputed hottest DJ of 2012, but he is also the most controversial. While you might expect the controversy surrounding him to stem from his personal life, he is actually regarded as a fairly low key individual. The actual source of his controversy comes from those who do not think he is an accurate representation of dubstep. Since this genre of music has so many passionate fans all over the world, it should come as no surprise that not all of them share the exact same opinions. But regardless of how much controversy he may generate, he has already made a major name for himself by winning three times at the 54th Grammy Awards. As if that was not enough to make 2012 an amazing year for Skrillex, he also has big plans for multiple tours and releasing new music.

Deadmau5: Although he once said that he does not like being viewed as a DJ, that classification is what has helped him gain recognition across the globe. And while there are plenty of people who would not recognize his face, just about everyone is familiar with his signature mouse head. Deadmau5 first rose to fame by attracting more than five million listens on MySpace. Even though none of his four Grammy nominations have translated into wins, he has still racked up eleven other awards from major events.

DJ Pauly D: Like Skrillex, bringing up Pauly D has been known to quickly kick up a lot of controversy. The main argument of those who fall into the hater camp is that Pauly D does not actually have any talent. However, at the end of the day, regardless of how you feel about him as a DJ, you cannot deny the fact that he has made the most of the exposure that he has gotten from Jersey Shore. In addition to landing a record deal for three albums, he is the resident DJ at Palms Casino. He also toured with Britney Spears during the course of 2011.

What is It Like to Be a Famous DJ?

You may never have an opportunity to spin for tens of thousands of ecstatic fans. However, that does not mean that it is impossible for you to experience what it is like to be a popular DJ. If you want to see what it is like to be in the shoes of a DJ like Skrillex, you can command a virtual dance floor by playing an online DJ game. Not only is this type of game a ton of fun, but you can enjoy it from the comfort of your own home!
