The DA Hot 25: April 27, 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 groundbreaking new music from RL Grime, Flume, and Kygo; fresh, tasteful cuts from Nina Las Vegas, Bakermat, and Mura Masa; and innovative remixes from Gryffin, W&W, and Unlike Pluto. 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: Flume – Say It (ft. Tove Lo)
Flume’s sophomore studio album, Skin, is undeniably one of the most anticipated electronic albums of the year, and last week, he unleashed his power collaboration “Say It” with Swedish siren, Tove Lo. The combination of Flume’s thunderous, future bass instrumentation and Tove Lo’s serenading vocals can only excite fans even more for the arrival of Skin.
The Breakout Select: Lost Kings – You (feat. Katelyn Tarver) [Unlike Pluto Remix Edit]
Unlike Pluto’s remix of Lost Kings’ “You” is a straight-forward tropical house offering with a piano progression foundation. The remixer crafts a catchy lead section to complement the gentle, vocal-laden breakdown. It’s an easy-going assemblage altogether, and one that is destined to attract attention in the crossover dance space.
