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 album highlights from Excision, Empire of the Sun, and Lost Frequencies; mind-bending remixes from Four Tet, Bixel Boys, H.O.S.H.; and weekend anthems from KOLAJ, Party Pupils, and Borgeous. Additionally, we’ve provided our picks from within The DA Hot 25, highlighting two standout tracks.
The Heat of the Week: Excision – Drowning ft. Akylla
Although a divine figure in the dubstep world, Excision’s new album Virus has a couple tracks where he steps out of his vicious growls and gargling bass. Undeniably a highlight on the album, “Drowning” is an incredible example of Excision’s production prowess and is a euphoric, melodic dubstep masterpiece that will send chills down your spine.
The Breakout Select: Karma Fields – Sweat (Bixel Boys Remix)
With Halloween weekend upon us, LA’s Bixel Boys flip Karma Fields “Sweat” into a grimy, sinister place in the house spectrum made for the spooky holiday upon us.
Tune in each Friday, exclusively on Spotify, where The DA Hot 25 debuts weekly on our curator page.
