The DA Hot 25: June 29, 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 features crossover summer hits from Sia & Diplo, Matoma, Cash Cash; thunderous festival anthems from Dillon Francis, Dizzee Rascal & Calvin Harris, and HI-LO; and tranquilizing slow-jams from Felix Cartal, Lee Foss, and Theo Kottis. Additionally, we’ve provided our picks from within The DA Hot 25, highlighting two standout tracks.
The Heat of the Week: Sia – Waving Goodbye
Is there anything hotter than a Diplo-produced Sia track? Between the veiled songstress’ incomparable Coachella performance and Diplo’s consistent ability to push the needle of both pop and dance music, “Waving Goodbye” was set up for greatness before the two even hit the studio.
The Breakout Select: Matoma & Becky Hill – False Alarm
Trop-pop has taken over commercial radio since its rising popularity over the past two years, and Matoma has one of the top talents in the category. His latest crossover output with Becky Hill, “False Alarm,” is irresistible, catchy, and overall mood-heightening.
