The DA Hot 25: June 15, 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 playlist contains new funky favorites from ZHU, Big Gigantic & GRiZ, and Sigala; crossover anthems from Mike Perry, Young Bombs, LVNDSCAPE & Bolier; and heavy hitters from Borgore, Gorgon City, and Matt Lange. Additionally, we’ve provided our picks from within The DA Hot 25, highlighting two standout tracks.
The Heat of the Week: ZHU – Generationwhy
With his debut album arriving July 29, the enigmatic ZHU unveils the title track, “Generationwhy,” that sports a surprisingly funky outer layer yet is still laced with the veiled producer’s signature sound throughout.
The Breakout Select: Mike Perry – The Ocean (feat. Shy Martin)
Scandinavia has proven to be a gold mine for dance producers with serious crossover potential, and Mike Perry is the newest act to arise. Not much information is known about the producer other than the fact that his breakout single, “The Ocean,” is irresistibly catchy.
