Additionally, we’ve provided our top picks from within The DA Hot 25, highlighting two standout tracks.
The Heat of the Week: deadmau5 – Legendary (ft. SHOTTY HORROH)
Quite possibly the most surprising release of the week, deadmau5 teams up with hip-hop talent, SHOTTY HORROH, for a grungy, urban-electronic number, “Legendary.”
The Breakout Select: Tchami – Don’t Let Me Down
Parisian house maestro, Tchami, came forward with his sophomore EP, Revelations, that featured his festival favorite “Adieu.” Another standout track on the EP, “Don’t Let Me Down,” is a scraping house heater that will surely be on repeat in late night clubs this fall.
