The DA Hot 25: May 18, 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 singles from the debut albums of Kygo and Stephen; dazzling new originals from Marshmeloo, Mija & Vindata, and Krewella; and stellar pop remixes from Young Bombs, The White Panda, and KREAM. 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: Kygo – Oasis (feat. Foxes)
The hype surrounding Kygo’s debut album, Cloud Nine, has been brewing for months, and last Friday, the Norwegian tropical don finally released it to the world. Although the entire full-length is an impressive body of work, “Oasis” with songstress Foxes truly stood out for Kygo’s beautiful piano line that will be stuck in listeners’ heads for days.
The Breakout Select: Mija & Vindata – Better
Two of OWSLA’s most exciting rising talents, Mija and Vindata, teamed up for a heart-pumping yet bright future bass original, “Better,” that ranks up for both artists as one of their best outputs to-date.
