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.

Zedd and Kehlani kick things off this final Friday of September with their new collaboration, “Good Thing,” and Boys Noize links with Francis and the Lights for “Why Not?” Kaskade keeps it mellow on his new collaboration with TELYkast, “No One Else,” and Zeds Dead join forces with Funkin Matt an Fiora for “Feel So.” AC Slater’s new album includes tunes like “Bad Behavior” with Chris Lorenzo and Purple Velvet Curtains, and Mercer takes on DJ Snake and Majid Jordan’s “Recognize.” Golf Clap and MASTERIA deliver “Mystery Scene” on mau5trap/Insomniac, and Gareth Emery follows “Laserface 01 (Aperture)” with “Laserface 02 (Thoughts In Pieces).” Dimension remixes himself on “If You Want To,” and Gorgon City reveal “Warehouse Mix” and “Terrace Dub” iterations of “There For You.” Tritonal team up with Rosie Darling on “Never Be The Same,” and NGHTMRE remixes Saven Lions, SLANDER, Dabin, and Dylan Matthew’s “First Time.” Galantis bring their piano-filled joy to “Holy Water,” and Tinlicker reveal their new LP, This Is Not Our Universe. Anna Lunoe and Nina Las Vegas cook up a weekend heater, “One Thirty,” and YehMe2 remixes Matoma and Bryn Christopher’s “All Around The World.”

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.

Sunday Morning Medicine Vol 162, with ZHU, Mat Zo, Luttrell, + moreSMM 2400

Sunday Morning Medicine is a feature from Dancing Astronaut dedicated to the mellower side of electronic music. We bring you our favorite therapeutic selections—old and new—in attempts to alleviate the agonizing effects of a long weekend of partying.


Mat Zo is turning the key on our Sunday Morning Medicine ignition this week, with his funky, idealistic remix of a vintage Porter Robinson track, “Flicker.” Zo’s rendition, which Robinson himself dubbed one of the best remixes he’d ever heard in his life, is full of wispy percussion and swirling melodies, erecting a city of celestial sound perfect for playing hide and go seek with responsibility.

Remixing an artist as colorful and inventive as Tycho is no small undertaking. But Anjunadeep‘s Luttrell (formerly one half of The M Machine) recently struck some sonic gold with his brand new “Epoch” re-envision, lending the track one of his signature chugging beats and preserving Tycho’s reverberating synth strums. Have a dance—or maybe just an extended sit—under Luttrell’s gleaming “Epoch”-al sky.

Here we have ZHU‘s ode to every painfully cool girl with a bad habit from a club locale nearest you. She lives lavishly inside the track’s cultivated wobble and sensuous, breathy vocals.

Manatee Commune’s newest, “My Dearest Friend” is a well-warranted spoonful of quixotic chaos. Instrumental, optimistic, and bouncy in all the right places, “My Dearest Friend” is here to eviscerate the residual alcohol-induced ringing in your ears.

Nothing lasts “Forever.” But tomorrow never comes for just over three minutes as Majid Jordan pulses through your speakers. You might just levitate as the duo’s illusory vocals and R&B tenderness breathe life into your tired weekend brain.
