The DA Hot 25: April 20, 2016
The DA Hot 25 is the definitive playlist series running through dance music culture and hand-delivering you with the essential tracks of the week. Whether it’s the hottest or quickest trending tracks, brand new music from your favorite artists, or songs from the unknown that should be landing on your radar, Dancing Astronaut brings you 25 carefully selected records that reflect what’s happening in our world.
This week’s selections include radio crossover hits from Galantis, DJ Snake, and Zedd; brand new heat from favorites like AlunaGeorge & Flume, Lido, and 3LAU; newcomers on the rise like Justin Jay, TJANI, and Big Wild. Additionally, the greatest ears in dance music will make bold picks within The DA Hot 25, each week highlighting two featured tracks:
The Heat of the Week: Galantis – “No Money”
After premiering “No Money” during their Main Stage performance at Ultra last month, Galantis’ irresistibly catchy, tropical-tinged tune entered Billboard’s Dance/Electronic chart this week to prove the track’s serious radio potential in the coming weeks.
The Breakout Select: KOLAJ – “The Touch”
Originally released independently and then recently signed to Darkroom/Interscope Records, KOLAJ’s “The Touch” is the definition of where indie meets dance. With its lighthearted blend of breezy percussion, effervescent guitar strums, and soothing lyrics, KOLAJ will surely make a splash this summer.
