The Hot 25: May 5, 2017

The 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 the comeback releases of Skrillex and RL Grime; major release from Flume, ZHU, and Marshmello; and thunderous bass cuts from JOYRYDE, Wiwek, and Boys Noize.

Additionally, we’ve provided our top picks from within The DA Hot 25, highlighting two standout tracks.

The Heat of the Week: Skrillex & Habstrakt – Chicken Soup

It’s felt like forever since Sonny Moore released a song under his Skrillex moniker. Returning to his bass roots with his highly-anticipated collaboration with Habstrakt, “Chicken Soup,” the OWSLA head takes a stab at bass house, culminating ripping growler that will definitely be a staple at festivals this summer.

The Breakout Select: Flume ft. KUČKA – Hyperreal

The latest piece from Flume’s Skin project, “Hyperreal,” is another collaboration with songstress KUČKA. As the two continue to test their hands at creating unique combinations of experimental and commercial elements, they only improve as a pair.

Tune in each Friday, exclusively on Spotify, where The DA Hot 25 debuts weekly on our curator page.

Additionally, the Dancing Astronaut writers have supplied over 30 songs in a special Cinco de Mayo playlist to help start your Friday festivities.
