The DA Hot 25: March 17, 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 heavy cuts from ZHU, Jauz, and Bassnectar; crossover standouts from Mura Masa, k?d, and BUNT; and major remixes from Marian Hill, Andrelli, and Megalodon. Additionally, we’ve provided our top picks from within The DA Hot 25, highlighting two standout tracks.
The Heat of the Week: Mura Masa & Charlie XCX – 1 Night
Mura Masa’s album is turning out to live up to the hype. Kicking it off with a major collab alongside A$AP Rocky with Love$ick, the British beat-smith has turned his attention to taking his sound into the crossover space, teaming up with Charlie XCX for “1 Night.”
The Breakout Select: Jauz – The Game
Bass house pioneer Jauz certainly pumps out his fair share of remixes and originals to keep his fans satisfied. However, Sam Vogel’s newest release, “The Game,” will excite fans who were looking for the innovation that put the producer on the map in his career’s earlier stage. Led by a growling current of bass and a woodblock melody, Jauz’s latest output shows off a wide variety of the producer’s ability to manipulate textures and sculpt impressive sound design.
