As we become consumed with the anticipation of new beginnings in the new year and a fresh start, it’s important that to take some time to reflect and reminisce about the past year. Perhaps it’s been prosperous, or perhaps it’s been incredibly difficult. Regardless, we must dance. We must dance for the moments of joy over the last year and be thankful for those we moments we shared with friends, family, and loved ones. We must dance away the sadness, the heartaches, and most importantly, for those who cannot. It’s with this need to dance, for whatever reason, that we’ve crafted our latest Launchpad playlist. This is a collection of house tracks far and wide that beg us to dance and for them to be the ones danced to.

DA Launchpad Selects:

KDA – “Hate Me ft Patrick Cash”

British DJ and producer KDA’s “Hate me” featuring Patrick Cash has been played out by the likes of Seth Troxler, Jamie Jones, Jackmaster, Tiga, and Pete Tong. It was only right for “Hate Me” to make it on this list of daring dance numbers.

Vndy Vndy – “Lost My Friends”

The last year was flooded with future bass. Many may look to the genre with dismay and point to its unoriginality, expected drops, etc. Certainly, though, there are many artists working within the subgenre that are unique and inspiring. Vndy Vndy is one such act. Their original “Lost My Friends” is based on part of the Tchaikovsky’s “Nutcracker” ballet (“Arabian dance”) and it’s a daringly singular offering that we couldn’t help but include in the mix.

Tracklist:

Jax Jones – “Breathe ft Ina Wroldsen”
Vndy Vndy  – “Lost My Friends”
Bes & Merey – “Flying High”
Tom Tyger & Vyktor Nova – “Move Your Feet”
Miss Nine & Basto – “Deep Deep Down ft Nat Conway”
KDA – “Hate Me ft Patrick Cash”
