The DA Hot 25: October 14, 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 an eclectic mix of offerings including darker dance floor heat from Boys Noize & Mr. Oizo, Kidnap Kid, Destructo; mind-numbing future bass from Seven Lions, Illenium & Said The Sky; and crossover guilty pleasures from Win & Woo, Zeds Dead, and Marshmello. Additionally, we’ve provided our picks from within The DA Hot 25, highlighting two standout tracks.
The Heat of the Week: Boys Noize & Mr. Oizo – Midnight (Boys Noize & Mr. Oizo Handbraekes Remix)
While The Heat of the Week typically features more commercial tracks, Boys Noize and Mr. Oizo undeniably earn this week’s title with their pumping collaborative remix of Boys Noize’s own “Midnight.” Fueled by stabbing synths and quaking percussion, the Handbraekes reunion sees both artists at their finest.
The Breakout Select: Kidnap Kid – Brokenhearted (Original Mix)
Seductive and dark yet melodic and beautiful, Kidnap Kid’s new single “Brokenhearted” is a prime example as to why the producer is one of the UK’s top house exports.
