This week’s playlist comes in strong with impressively creative remixes from Mura MasaTchami, and Kaskade. Next, Lost Kings head for chiller pastures with their new single “Don’t Call.” Axwell / Ingrosso emerge with an end-of-the-year track, “Dreaming,” to cap off the year.  Additionally, underground maven Amtrac mesmerizes with “Companions,” while on the exact opposite end of the spectrum, Marshmello & Migos team up for a hip-hop/trap collaboration “Danger.”

The Heat of the Week: HAIM – Walking Away (Mura Masa Remix)

Now Grammy-nominated, Mura Masa returns after his monumental debut album for a brisk, refreshing take on HAIM’s “Walking Away.”

This week’s playlist comes in strong with radio-ready singles from Marshmello and Kygo. Next, Porter Robinson emerged for the first time since “Shelter” with a side project called Virtual Self and offers up the first song under the moniker, “EON BREAK.” Additionally, Kayzo & Slander team up for a fiery bass-driving collaboration called “Holy,” while the two legends Carl Cox and Nile Rogers provide one of the week’s most unexpected joint efforts with “Beat the Track.”

Finally, for those looking for energetic big room, Dash Berlin, Deorro, and Vigel come forth with main stage heat.

The Heat of the Week: Ghastly – I’ll Wait

While Ghastly has built his brand off 808-pounding bass house and dubstep cuts, the Arizona-bred producer has recently been stepping out into new genre spaces and continues his experimentation with new original “I’ll Wait.” Highly melodic and loaded with grandiose synths, Ghastly shines in his ability to show fans a more emotional side to his sound.

The Breakout Select: Mansionair – Astronaut

The point of The Breakout Select is to showcase one track each week that unexpectedly wows us, and Mansionair earns the honor this week with “Astronaut.” A sublime piece of indie-electronic instrumentation complemented with a pacific vocal topline, the Australian trio even channel some Daft Punk inspiration with a funk-tinged vocoder in the chorus.
