And the most popular songs of the decade with the fewest lyrics are…Martin Garri Dryo

Dance music at its core is no better than the beat that drives the song, and a list compiled by Cloud Cover Music calls out the most popular dance music songs of the decade that have the least amount of unique lyrics.

Topping the list, unsurprisingly, is none other than Martin Garrix‘s “Animals,” which uses an average number of five unique lyrics throughout the track. Garrix makes the list twice, with his collaboration “Like I Do” with David Guetta and Brooks landing the No. 8 spot. “Harlem Shake” by Baauer takes the runner-up position, followed by “Turn Down For What” by DJ Snake and Lil Jon.

Frequenters on the compiled list are highly accomplished dance music artists, such as Calvin Harris and the beloved late Avicii. ZHU, Coldplay, San Holo, and Daft Punk also make the list.

partywithray releases ‘Winter Pool Party Mix’ including a brand new collab with ZHU

partywithray just teased a brand new ZHU collab on his ‘Winter Pool Party Mix,’ coming off the high of his killer collaboration with the enigmatic producer on “Came for the Low.” A longtime friend of the mysterious deep house stalwart, partywithray takes cues from ZHU’s patented brand of enigma and keeps things decidedly anonymous too. On this latest mix, the LA-based producer commiserates the brisk air of a West Coast Winter. A time when the rooftop pools close down and the temperate requires a light jacket. For just under an hour, partywithray keeps things moving and weaves together 34 bumping house and electro jams that are guaranteed to start a pool party in the dead of winter — even if “winter” for Los Angeles means the temperature is in the mid 50s. We’re just bitter and freezing on the East Coast, but at least this mix is keeping us warm.

Dancing Astronaut’s Top Tracks of 2019Madeon Top Tracks Eoy 2019

2019 has been a remarkable year for new music.

The past twelve months brought with them a collection of highly anticipated LPs: Madeon‘s Good Faith, Avicii‘s posthumous Tim, Gesaffelstein‘s Hyperion, Illenium‘s ASCEND, along with a Flume mixtape. Notable collaborations like REZZ and Malaa‘s “Criminals,” Seven Lions, Wooli, Trivecta, and Nevve‘s “Island,” and GRiZ and Subtronics‘ “Griztronics” hit the airwaves in blazes of glory. Supergroups like Dog Blood (Skrillex and Boys Noize) and Get Real (Claude VonStroke and Green Velvet) showcased the power of doubling up on brainpower. And, of course, countless singles had us hitting repeat more times than were calculable: Dillon Francis‘ “Still Not Butter,” i_o‘s “House of God,” Habstrakt‘s “De la Street,” Alesso‘s “Progresso,” and so many more.

In no particular order, we present a 30-track collection of our favorite songs of the year, chosen by DA writers and editors.

NERVO recruit Skazi for new take on ZHU’s, ‘Faded’Nervo Press

It has been a whirlwind year for NERVO. The twin sister DJ duo both gave birth this year, though that didn’t seem to slow their role as they were also named Tomorrowland Radio‘s first ever weekly hosts. Amid major milestones this year, the sisters kept up a steady stream of new material, including their latest, an homage to ZHU‘s chart-topping “Faded” alongside Skazi. The track is available now via Spinnin’ Records.

NERVO’s “Faded” takes on the familiar elements of ZHU’s 2014 breakout smash, matched with the duo’s signature house-inspired flair. Keeping the original’s unmistakable hook, NERVO and Skazi refit the track with a thumping, club-ready backdrop. Hear “Faded” below.

Tchami and ZHU share back-to-back performance from HARD Summer

The house music stars aligned over California this summer. Tchami and ZHU swept the decks, side by side, at the now Insomniac-owned HARD Summer for an hour of four-on-the-floor insanity amid the August heat.

Such a venerated pairing isn’t surprising in the least for those who’ve been following HARD’s iconoclastic narrative for the past decade (and change); and the titillating twosome certainly rose to the brand’s legacy. The dexterous duo treated the audience to standout renditions of each DJ’s eminent discography, like a “Guilty Love” remix and an Umek “Vibrancy”/”After Life” mashup.

The hour is chock-full of revered house cuts, alongside Tchami and ZHU staples. The performance is undoubtedly among the best sets of not only the bygone weekend, but the entire 2019 festival season.

The Bloody Beetroots has teamed up with fellow mystery producer ZHU for the collaboration fans didn’t know they needed in the form of “Zoning.” The cinematic release combines the best of both artists’ styles to create a unique and immersive sound.

“Zoning” features ZHU’s hypnotic vocals referencing altered states, and the production between the two artists becomes a sonic kaleidoscope of pulsating synths, instrumentals, and hard-driving beats.

“Working with ZHU was a rather mysterious experience that led us to write a song that brought together our different musical influences. It was definitely a journey,” said The Bloody Beetroots’ Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo in an official release.    

To support the release of “Zoning” and his other latest material, look for The Bloody Beetroots to return next to the U.S. for a show at Webster Hall in New York City on Saturday, Nov. 2.  Tickets are on sale now here.
