It’s most important day of the week: New Music Friday. With the overwhelming amount of tunes hitting the airwaves today, Dancing Astronaut has you covered with the latest edition of The Hot 25.
Skrillex kicks off the weekend with a stacked collaboration, “Malokera,” with MC Lan, TroyBoi, Ludmilla, and Ty Dolla $ign. Alison Wonderland and QUIX have teamed up for “TIME,” and Louis The Child and Wrabel deliver a bittersweet joint effort called “Too Close.” CRAY brings a retro tone to her latest, “idontwannatalkaboutlove,” and The Knocks continue their summer releases with “Colors.” Cashmere Cat is full of “EMOTIONS” on his newest, and Good Times Ahead (formerly GTA) get with Flosstradamus for “Waffle House.” Cedric Gervais remixes DJ Snake, J Balvin, and Tyga’s “Loco Contigo,” and Mazare and Essenger turn it up to 11 on their new Monstercat single, “Berzerker.” The Chrises got in the studio for a new Anti Up single, “Right Now,” and Alok and Zafrir bring “Vale Vale” to listeners’ ears. HEYZ previews his new Bite This! album with “Castaway King,” and Valentino Khan drops off his new EP, stacked with songs like “BRB.” Fedde Le Grand puts his own touch on Matoma, MNEK, and Kiana Lede’s “Bruised Not Broken,” and Herobust preps for the weekend with “Dumb Lit.”
As each week brings a succession of new music from some of electronic music’s biggest artists, here’s a selection of tracks that shouldn’t be missed this NMF.
The Summer of Skrillex continues with the LA-based super producer dropping off his next single, while both of his recently released Show Tracksstill remain heavily on repeat. Skrill’s latest is a posse cut that finds him linked once again with TroyBoi, frequent collaborator Ty Dolla $ign, and dominating Brazilian forces Ludmilla and MC Lan on the long-teased “Malokera.” And, as per usual with Skrillex, it’s completely different than his other recent outputs—a knocking Brazilian funk framework polished by multilingual spits from Ty Dolla, Lan, and Ludmilla.
Skrillex and TroyBoi are forming a close production kinship as the latter joins OWSLA‘s roster, with “Malokera” serving as an enticing follow up to June’s “WARLORDZ.” Together they’ve delivered an infectiously bouncy original cut that proudly wears Brazil on its sleeve. Stream below.
Skrillex can’t stay out of the headlines thanks to the sheer volume of music and diverse nature of collaborations he has been releasing as of late. Over the last few weeks, the producer has released music with Ed Sheeran, Ty Dolla $ign, Lykke Li, and TroyBoi. According to a new Instagram post, it would appear Skrillex will not be stopping there.
TroyBoi took to Instagram to announce a new collaboration with the OWSLA boss that will feature Ty Dolla $ign, Lan, and Ludmilla titled “Malokera.” The new collaborative cut comes hot off the heels of Skrillex and TroyBoi’s boisterous “WARLORDZ” joint from earlier this summer. While TroyBoi did not specify a release date, he did note that the track is “coming soon,” giving Skrillex fans their next piece of material to look forward to. This track announcement comes only weeks after news surfaced of TroyBoi’s upcoming EP, PAPI CHULO, which will almost certainly feature “Malokera.”
