This week’s playlist features major collaborations from Gryffin & Illenium as well as Lane 8 & Kidnap Kid; commercial heat from Arty, Cash Cash, and Louis The Child; and standout remixes from rising newcomers Ekali, Dan Farber, and Flash ’89. Additionally, we’ve provided our top picks from within The DA Hot 25, highlighting two standout tracks.
The Heat of the Week: Gryffin & Illenium ft. Daya – Feel Good
Gryffin and Illenium had shown no real signs of a collaboration in the works until both producers took to their social media on Monday to announce their joint effort, “Feel Good,” with the vocal treatment from the Grammy-winning Daya. Balancing raw power with beautiful melodies, the trio’s offering will surely make its way into the commercial light as it continues to build.
The Breakout Select: Lane 8 & Kidnap Kid – Aba
After a long work day, Lane 8 & Kidnap Kid’s new single, “Aba,” provides an enchanting release. Serenely smooth and profoundly intricate, “Aba” is a pristine piece of house music that dance fans can sit back and admire the craftsmanship behind.
