The DA Hot 25: August 17, 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 saw standout new music from rising stars like Azad, Unlike Pluto, and k?d; massive joint efforts between Porter Robinson & Madeon, Afrojack & Ty Dolla $ign, Party Favor & Gucci Mane; and hip-shaking house from Martin Solveig, Destructo & Wax Motif, and Cash Cash. Additionally, we’ve provided our picks from within The DA Hot 25, highlighting two standout tracks.
The Heat of the Week: Porter Robinson & Madeon – Shelter
Both pioneers of the complextro scene, Porter Robinson and Madeon decided to break the Internet last week by announcing their ongoing collaboration for not only new single “Shelter,” but a dual headlining tour as well.
The Breakout Select: Azad – Enough of You
Electronic hip-hop newcomer, Azad, creates a dark and desolate soundscape for his single “Enough of You.”
