The DA Hot 25: February 10, 2017
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 radio-friendly cuts from Axwell Λ Ingrosso, Kygo, and Illenium; speaker-blowing singles from REZZ, Malaa, and Ghastly; and more mellow offerings from filous, Kidswaste, and Lostboycrow. Additionally, we’ve provided our top picks from within The DA Hot 25, highlighting two standout tracks.
The Heat of the Week: Illenium – Fractures (feat. Nevve)
Illenium can’t seem to miss with his extraordinarily powerful style of future bass. His new single “Fractures” balances beautiful melodies with pumping synths as Nevve’s vocals ties the entire track together elegantly.
The Breakout Select: REZZ – Matrix
Mau5trap prodigy REZZ,came forth with “Fourth Impact” – her long-awaited collaboration with rising star k?d – last week to many fans’ delight. Clearly a woman of the people, it seems that the skilled producer couldn’t wait to release a follow-up piece, “Matrix,” which brings her grimy, ominous tones to greater depths than perhaps ever before.
