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.
Check out this week’s playlist featuring crossover magic from Lost Kings, Lemaitre, Zeds Dead; awe-inspiring album debuts from Lido and GTA; and face-melting bass cuts from Rezz, Snails & Flux Pavilion, and Pegboard Nerds. Additionally, we’ve provided our picks from within The DA Hot 25, highlighting two standout tracks.
The Heat of the Week: Lido – Citi Bike
Lido has continued his quest to break barriers by completing the career milestone of releasing his debut LP, Everything. “Citi Bike” is the seventh track of the album, and it’s certainly a standout piece, with its gritty yet graceful temperament characterized by its distorted vocals and pummeling progressions.
The Breakout Select: Lost Kings – Phone Down feat. Emily Warren
Once champions of the remix game and HypeMachine charts, Lost Kings leave their festival anthems in the studio and come forth with a mature, crossover number, “Phone Down.” Featuring songwriting aficionado Emily Warren, the LA duo may be hot on the heels of their management mates, The Chainsmokers, as they set their sights on the radio.
