It’s most important day of the week: New Music Friday. Even if you’re still in a turkey-induced coma — fret not. DA has you covered with the latest edition of The Hot 25.

To kick things off, josh pan and AWAY have teamed up for a hefty sizzler called “Mask.” DubVision and Raider bring us warm rays of summer with “Yesterday,” and Tom & Collins deliver some house heat with “Swoon.” Bass veteran 12th Planet has unleashed his heavy Swamplex Terrestrial EP, featuring songs like its title track. After a two-year hiatus, Haywyre has released his second track in two weeks, the groovy “Storyteller.” FTampa thrills in a feel-good remix of Sofi Tukker‘s “Brazilian Soul,” and Nicky Romero delivers an acoustic rendition of “Rise” with Matluck and Stadiumx. Chime continues his tour de force with “Goldfinch,” and Tisoki opens up the dancefloor with “All Like That.”

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.

A-Trak releases intimate, making-of music video for ‘DJs Gotta Dance More’A TRAK NWM 11.1

A-Trak has released an intimate music video for his single, “DJs Gotta Dance More,” featuring his co-producer Cory Enemy and New York DJ icon, Todd Terry, in the booth. The esteemed DJ wanted a behind-the-scenes look, reflecting the production process at its most authentic. In a dimly lit room, the instruments shine and the groove is felt enough for Terry to get into the booth, remaking the entire song in one take.

The song has an old-school ambiance, telling the story of real DJs in the ’80s and their transformation from music lover into a culture curator. The Fools Gold label boss said in a press release, “I released ‘DJs Gotta Dance More’ over the summer. It’s very dear to me, because it talks about all the rituals and experiences you go through when you learn how to produce music: digging for samples, discovering influences, and convincing your parents to let you make noise at the house. Getting Todd Terry to speak on the record was a blessing: he represents a New York state of mind, and a kinship between hip hop and house, which is a huge part of my identity.”

Lauren Sick was the director for the project, racking up previous credits for Vampire Weekend, El-P, and Chromeo. In addition to the music video, A-Trak released two remixes of “DJs Gotta Dance More” by Cassius and Illyus & Barrientos.

Two legends unite: A-Trak and Todd Terry release ‘DJs Gotta Dance More’DJ Gotta Dance More

A-Trak and Todd Terry are two dance music legends that’ve helped to not only pioneer house music, but fuse hip-hop and electronic music together into an infectious whole. The duo have come together for a new release, “DJs Gotta Dance More,” marking their first endeavor together.

The track features a groovy backdrop driven forward by commanding piano chords, and vocals serve as a centerpiece to the song. Terry’s voice chants throughout the song and adds an intriguing dynamic to the jazz-infused house track. His vocals are an interesting commentary on dance music and those who once started as bedroom producers.

“DJs Gotta Dance More” is out now on A-Trak’s own Fool’s Gold label.
