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.

After the release of their Lost Souls EP earlier this year, Knife Party have tapped Laidback Luke for a groovy remix of “Death & Desire,” and Jason Ross, Dabin, and Dylan Matthew team up for “One That Got Away.” Wave Racer has released a new single, “This N That” with LunchMoney Lewis, and Martin Garrix links with Dean Lewis for “Used to Love.” Walker & Royce tackle Dom Dolla’s “San Frandisco,” and Hot Since 82 takes it one deeper on “Tilted.” Arty lends his spirited hand to Gorgon City and MK’s “There For You,” and Axwell remixes Halsey’s “Graveyard.” Four Tet’s dingbat-riddled moniker unveils new content, and Nicky Romero, Mike Williams, and Amba Shepherd collaborate on “Dynamite.” REZZ and Malaa take no prisoners on “Criminals,” and Golf Clap deliver their iteration of “Let It Go” by Hood Rich and BRUX. NGHTMRE flexes on an interpretation of Habstrakt’s “The One,” and Herobust cranks up the intensity on “Smoke.” Chime keeps the Halloween spirit alive with “Haunted,” and Modestep sound the “Alarm” on their new single.

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.

REZZ and Malaa unshackle mid-tempo malice, ‘Criminals,’ just in time for Halloween

REZZ and Malaa‘s long-awaited, two-headed aural animal of unearthly proportions has arrived. “Criminals” has been the source audacious anticipation from each artist’s fandom—who often and enthusiastically intersect—but have now directly collided for the occasion.

The track rings of the beguiling mid-tempo riddling REZZ’s catalog, but that has only just began to slither and writhe into Malaa’s repertoire, namely in the form of “Revolt.” Although, the transition has proved a seamless one for the anonymous but sonically marked masked phenomenon.

The track sizzles with the explosive nature of both its creative entities. However it’s rather difficult to discern who contributed to what production-wise, since the song arrives like a bare-bones version of a REZZ original. The grimacing vocal hook, however, harkens Malaa’s handiwork for certain.

The masked menace hits milestone 25th episode of ‘Who is Malaa’ mix series

Who is Malaa? Conspiracies run rampant. But titles like purveyor of pernicious beats and mixer of maniacal melodies ring with resounding veracity nonetheless.

The French ski-masked menace just hit a noteworthy benchmark, the watershed 25th episode, in his longtime SoundCloud series, Who is Malaa. The mix collection has served as a vessel for Malaa to channel his multifarious musical proclivities, which range from minimal techno, to heady bass house, to his newfound affinity for on-brand nefarious mid-tempo (i.e., “Revolt“).

This latest installment exercises the length of the “Notorious” producer’s palette. From Eli Brown‘s whimsical, dancefloor-destined rework of up-and-coming Aussie powerhouse, Dom Dolla‘s recent “San Frandisco,” to Kage’s pandemic new “Virus,” to Martin Ikin’s soulful Beatport-topper, “Hooked,” the most in-demand house cuts of the moment are accounted for in the 30-minute milestone effort. The malevolent mix maestro’s mantra rings as apt prelude for this one: “You can listen to this shit at the club and go rob a bank afterwards.”

Malaa keeps the tone ominous in the newest visual accompaniment to recent single featuring Jacknife, “Revolt.” In Malaa’s typically noir-leaning fashion, the new video is shot in black and white, and depicts various characters wearing the enigmatic producer’s calling card black mask.

Malaa’s impersonating characters smash cars, tout guns, engaging in a variety of crime-laced stunts throughout the video, inciting total mayhem throughout. The video has an artistic edge, replete with dancers spinning in and out of flames, motorcycles, and more. Tune in below.

Malaa is back in action with episode 24 of WHO IS MALAA [Stream]

After more than eight months since its last iteration, a new WHO IS MALAA mix from house music’s masked avenger has materialized, no doubt to his fervent following’s maniacal merriment. Although it’s been a while, the mysterious Frenchman is still at the forefront of driving, propulsive beats. A significant departure from his previous mixes, though, this mix lends itself to the bouncier, Ibiza-friendly sound that’s enthralled the next phase of house music fanatics in recent months.

Stand out tracks from the mix come from a variety of house mavens including “Off” from Dale Howard, a notable Elrow release, in addition to Martin Ikin’s latest release on Toolroom, “How I Feel,” which does serious damage in the midst of this half-hour house-cursion. The world may not be any closer to knowing who Malaa really is, but his sonic identity remains crystal clear.

On Aug. 3, DJ Snake and Malaa took to HARD Summer‘s Pink Stage to unleash some unwieldy house madness.

Their 72-minute set took attendees through an array of both artists’ tunes, sprinkling some IDs and songs from friends like Green Velvet, Valentino Khan, Wax Motif, and many more.

The iconic duo seamlessly wove one heater into the next, no doubt thrilling all who were fortunate enough to be in the crowd. Luckily for the rest of the world, the set has surfaced on DJ Snake’s SoundCloud and is now streamable for all.

DJ Snake’s performance comes just days after the release of his 17-track Carte Blanche album, which featured collaborations with Zomboy, ZHU, Cardi B, Sean Paul, and more. Malaa, too, was featured on the album. The masked artist has also been busy in 2019, releasing on Snake’s Premiere Classe and Tchami‘s CONFESSION.

Enjoy this iconic back-to-back set below.

Flashing back to April of this year, DJ Snake extended his interminable archive of notable collaborations when he unleashed his hip-hop blockbuster, “Enzo.” The posse cut showcased A-listers including Offset, 21 Savage, Gucci Mane, and Sheck Wes, and now the track has received a boost from Snake’s masked affiliate and fellow Pardon My French teammate, Malaa.

Those attending EDC Las Vegas this summer received a fleeting introduction to Malaa’s bouncy rendition of “Enzo” making him a clear candidate to handle the first official remix. The Ferrari-denominated flip is a welcomed pivot for those craving a quicker tempo than DJ Snake’s original cut. This is far from Malaa’s first remix for Snake— it’s inevitable that the duo ready a proper collaboration, especially considering the two are rumored for back-to-back performances at this year’s Hard Summer and Electric Zoo.
