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.

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.
The track, aptly named “Lazersx999,” features a pushing beat and synths that resemble a video game. HI-LO and Chocolate Puma overwhelm the senses with unrelenting lasers, placing the listener in the center of the chaotic game the two artists created.
When producing as HI-LO, Heldens tends to lean more towards an electro style, and this new single is no exception to that rule. “Lazersx999” sounds like an ode to the European rave scene; its high energy begs to be featured heavily in the club culture.
The immersive two-day festival will have four curated stages, taking place in Rawhide Western Town & Event Center—Arizona’s massive 1880s western-themed entertainment venue. The venue is home to other Relentless Beats festivals including CRUSH Arizona, Decadence, Phoenix Lights, and many others.
Life is Beautiful returns to Las Vegas later this year, taking over 18 blocks of the city to host a multi-day festival of today’s biggest names. For its seventh edition, the festival boasts a multi-genre set of talent, with some of EDM’s hottest acts topping the bill.
Oliver Heldens has gone in a new direction with a folk-leaning release “Summer Lover,” and as the title of the track alludes to, the new collaborative cut could be the summer anthem everyone is looking for. The track features vocals by Devin and Chic’s Nile Rodgers, with Heldens dropping his characteristic house chords, a kicking guitar backdrop, and flaring synths. The catchy melody adds a new element to a Helden’s production with its upbeat energy centered around the enthralling vocals, making the song a likely pop radio hit. The track is out now via RCA Records.
“Summer Lover” comes just as Heldens is wrapping the first North American leg of his Heldeep 5 World Tour. Stream “Summer Lover” below.
Oliver Heldens has constantly worked to keep is sound both accessible and fresh. While he came to fame quickly for his exciting and fun take on the future house movement, Heldens soon settled into a groove of upbeat vocal house. Then this time last year Oliver began dropping some heavier more tech-oriented tracks such as
