The past week’s top tracks come from Kaytranada, Jauz, LCD Soundsystem; innovative remixes from Kill the Zo, Flux Pavilion, and Madison Mars; and finally, some genre-blending originals from Ekali, Malaa, and ZHU.

Additionally, we’ve provided our top picks from within The DA Hot 25, highlighting two standout tracks.

The Heat of the Week: Gorillaz – Stobelite (ft. Peven Everett) [Kaytranada Remix]

The Gorillaz have been still riding high after their momentous return with their fifth studio album, Humanz, and the LP came with a number of high profile remixes including Baauer, ZHU, Bonobo, and more. To further flex on the album’s remix catalog, Kaytranada steps forth and applies his own twist on the groove-ridden R&B number, “Strobelite,” and the Soulection maestro does not disappoint.

The Breakout Select: Jauz – Alpha

Festival season may be approaching its final week’s of the year, but that won’t stop Jauz. The bass house trailblazer came forth today with a wub-pumping original, “Alpha,” that is sure to electrify crowds from the main stage through the end of this year and into next.

This week’s Launchpad is meant to take you somewhere else, out of this crazy world. Put it on, relax, and let your mind be transported.

DA Launchpad Selects:
Kartell – “5 A.M.” 
This Paris-based producer earns our respect for the groovy bassline combined with the array of interjected samples and vocal chops.
einarIndra – “Sweet Honey Flows”

This week’s Launchpad is all about that bass-heavy summer party music. Whether or not you have “official” time off, we hope this list of tunes will induce the euphoric vibes of summer break.

DA Launchpad Selects:

“Slo Mo” by bordrs. earns our respect for the combination of smooth, almost haunting vocals, with a build that definitely matches the intensity of the chainsaw-heavy levels of the drop.
Rounding out the list, Swedish producer Arc North deftly recruits the punk pop vocals of Dani Rosenoer for a fresh, fast take on the future bass genre with “Onward (Pt. II)”.

The Hot 25 is the definitive playlist series running through dance music culture and hand­-delivering you the essential tracks of the week. Whether it’s the hottest or quickest trending tracks, brand new music from your favorite artists, or songs from the unknown that should be landing on your radar, Dancing Astronaut brings you 25 carefully selected records that reflect what’s happening in our world.

The past week brought a batch of A-list collaborations from Skrillex & DJ Sliink, KSHMR & Snails, R3HAB & Felix Cartel; stand-out singles from Steve Angello, Rezz, and Bicep; and finally, some weekend-ready remixes from Spencer Brown, SAVI, and Tim Engelhardt.

Additionally, we’ve provided our top picks from within The DA Hot 25, highlighting two standout tracks.

The Heat of the Week: Steve Angello – Rejoice (feat. T.D. Jakes)

While his most recent activity has been limited outside of his back-to-back weekends at Coachella this year, dance music icon, Steve Angello, returns with two new tracks that are the start of a slew of releases. Out of the two, “Rejoice” stands out for the ex-Swedish House Mafia member’s ability to convey raw power in a seven minute piece that transcends the current trends of electronic dance music. Recruiting T.D. Jakes to provide a groundshaking speech atop of angelic voices and organ chords, Steve Angello once again shows the scene why he has been at the forefront of electronic music culture since the beginning.

The Breakout Select: Bicep – Glue

Underground wunderkinds, Bicep, slide into the tail-end of summer with a break-heavy new single “Glue.” A tad slower than what one might call a club track, the Irish pair balance spastic percussion with ethereal synths and heavenly wails to yield a product that is certainly at the top of our releases for the week.

The past week saw fiery original releases from Rezz, Paul Oakenfold, and Tchami; major crossover offerings from Zedd, Mura Masa, and AlunaGeorge; as well as under-the-radar gems from Laibert, KOLAJ, and filous.

Additionally, we’ve provided our top picks from within The DA Hot 25, highlighting two standout tracks.

The Heat of the Week: Rezz – Relax

Rezz’s ascendance from deadmau5 protege to dance music tour de force has been astounding over the past year, but the Niagra Falls-based producer really shook fans up this week with the announce of her unreleased album. “Relax” is the first piece off the LP, and if its any indication of whats to come, Rezz fans should be justifiably excited.

The Breakout Select: Paul Oakenfold & Lizzy Land – Waterfall (Original Mix)

The breakout select goes to one of dance music’s most seasoned veterans, Paul Oakenfold, and his new song “Waterfall” do to his ability to evoke a rush of nostalgia while applying a modern touch.

Whether it’s the hottest or quickest trending tracks, brand new music from your favorite artists, or songs from the unknown that should be landing on your radar, Dancing Astronaut brings you 25 carefully selected records that reflect what’s happening in our world.

The past week saw the release of Calvin Harris‘ fifth studio album, Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1, with features from Snoop Dogg, Schoolboy Q, Katy Perry, Kehlani, and more. On top of that, Mura Masa, San Holo, and Seven Lions all released stellar originals in addition to standout remixes from Yotto, Gryffin, & Oliver Heldens.

Additionally, we’ve provided our top picks from within The DA Hot 25, highlighting two standout tracks.

The Heat of the Week: Calvin Harris – Cash Out (feat. Schoolboy Q, PARTYNEXTDOOR, D.R.A.M.)

While Cash Out came in third on our ranked list of Calvin Harris’ new album, the track certainly stood at the top of new tracks that came with the album. Schoolboy Q and PARTYNEXTDOOR succeed in bringing an urban edge to Harris’ 90s hip-hop-inspired instrumental.

The Breakout Select: Mura Masa – Second 2 None (feat. Christine & The Queens) / Blue (feat. Damon Albarn)

Mura Masa’s forthcoming self-titled album could be one of the most anticipated LPs of 2017 with an eclectic yet all-star list of collaborators. The latest peep into the album comes in a dual-sided release with two of music’s most credible acts, Christine & The Queens and Damon Albarn of the Gorillaz.
