The DA Hot 25: February 3, 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 left-of-center offerings from josh pan, Tchami, and Barclay Crenshaw. We’ve also highlighted major releases from REZZ & k?d, Alesso, and Sampha, as well as this week’s best remixes from Gorgon City, Gryffin, and Getter. Additionally, we’ve provided our top picks from within The DA Hot 25, highlighting two standout tracks.
The Heat of the Week: REZZ & k?d – Fourth Impact
From deadmau5′ techno prodigy to one of dance music’s most forward-thinking producers, REZZ has been an exciting artist to watch strengthen her artist project with every move she makes. Finally coming forth with her collaboration alongside up-and-coming prodigy, k?d, the duo unleash a diabolical, bass-crunching cut called “Fourth Impact” that is sure to be rinsed in her festival sets in the coming months.
The Breakout Select: josh pan x X&G – nowhere
OWSLA favorite, josh pan, crashed onto everyone’s radar last year with his Skrillex-backed single, “Platinum.” His new single, “nowhere,” with serial collaborator X&G boasts a much different temperament leaning in the indie-electronic sphere and absolutely knocking it out of the park.
