This week saw high-profile remixes from Diplo, Galantis, Cheat Codes; head-turning breakout releases from newcomers like Kid Froopy, White Machine, Filous & MOUNT; and artistic exploration from Audien, Jerry Folk, and Skrillex. Additionally, we’ve provided our picks from within The DA Hot 25, highlighting two standout tracks.
The Heat of the Week: Audien – Crazy Love (feat. Deb’s Daughter)
The Grammy-nominated, Audien, leaves his festival-ready progressive house style behind to experiment with more jubilent dance-pop moods in his new single, “Crazy Love,” featuring Deb’s Daughter.
The Breakout Select: Kid Froopy – Bb (Four Missed Text)
Growing online collective, Moving Castle, saves their best release of the summer for last with newcomer Kid Froopy’s cut “Bb (Four Missed Tex).” Subtly lacing the pop-based vocals and guitar strums with sounds of the URL world, Kid Froopy shines bright.
