The Hot 25: June 9, 2017
The Hot 25 is the definitive playlist series running through dance music culture and hand-delivering you 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.
The past week saw radio-setting collaborations between Justin Bieber and David Guetta, Sigala and Ella Eyre, and triple-threat combination of Lost Kings, Ally Brooke, & A$AP Ferg. Also, we highlight impressive remixes from Michael Brun, Kaskade, and Major Lazer. Furthermore, notable downtempo releases from Tycho, Jerry Folk, Bonobo, and EMBRZ came into the fold.
Additionally, we’ve provided our top picks from within The DA Hot 25, highlighting two standout tracks.
The Heat of the Week: David Guetta – 2U (ft. Justin Bieber)
Say what you will about both parties, the combination of David Guetta and Justin Bieber is made for radio. Guetta’s instrumentation for “2U” surprisingly punches harder than one would expect while Justin Bieber lays his silky croons over to create a dance-pop treat.
The Breakout Select: Sigala – Came Here For Love (ft. Ella Eyre)
While his name is still on the rise over here in the states, Sigala has been a force to be reckoned with overseas and looks to take over both domestic and international radio waves with “Came Here For Love.” Sunny melodies in tandem with soulful yet bright croons from Ella Eyre, the London beat-smith creates a tune made for the warm weather and poolside festivities.
