It’s most important day of the week: New Music Friday. With a refreshing amount of tunes hitting the airwaves today on the first NMF of 2019, Dancing Astronaut has you covered with the latest edition of The Hot 25.

Perhaps one of the biggest releases of today is a mega collaboration from Seven Lions, Wooli, Trivecta, and Nevve called “Island,” which is packed with cascading melodies and powerfully emotive beats. Lost Kings have also arrived in full force, releasing their Paper Crowns EP, which is headed up by “Don’t Kill My High” with Wiz Khalifa and Social House. mau5trap has released their We Are Friends, Vol. 8 compilation, which features 35 tracks from some of the label’s best rising acts, including i_o, ATTLAS, No Mana, and more. Hardwell kicks off his 2019 releases with “Being Alive” with JGUAR, and Sofi Tukker delivers four remixes for “Benadryl,” including a breezy take from TOKiMONSTA. Ghastly and G-Rex have joined forces on the formidable “Heretic,” and Tom Staar puts a grooving twist on Oliver Heldens‘ “Fire In My Soul.” 3LAU taps the talents of vocalist Carly Paige on his newest, “Would You Understand,” and Galantis‘ “Emoji” gets a rework from BEAUZ in their new remix pack.

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.

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory Vol. 31

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory is a weekly collection of songs from DA music editor and staff writer Robyn Dexter. With a taste that can only be described as eclectic — to say nothing of a name that lends itself to punnery — DA is happy to present a selection of tracks personally curated by Dexter for your listening pleasure.


Tim Schaufert‘s releases in the past few months have been nothing short of perfection. His latest, “Runaway,” is a gorgeously haunting partnership with frequent collaborator CASHFORGOLD. Her delicate vocals juxtaposed with a minimalist trap beat make for an almost eerie atmosphere.


This sultry number comes to us from Luna and Sarah De Warren. With a deep-set melody driving the verses, the collaborators lead up to a chorus that brings a Middle Eastern accent to the song. The dance floor-ready track brings a modern flair to the exotic melody, combined with vocals that are both seductive and heavenly at the same time.


Whenever London producer Dimension posts a new track, madness is sure to ensue. His latest release, “Raver,” draws its power directly from its name. “Raver” is pure UK drum & bass insanity in the best possible: it’s chock-full of deep bass, racing BPMs and energized vocals. Unlike his last release (an emotive, melodic collaboration with Wilkinson), “Raver” brings out the raw intensity of a London dance floor late at night.


Earlier this week, Sound Remedy quietly released a 10-track LP called Seeds. Most of the album’s track tap into the softer side of the LA artist’s production, like this one. “Sunset in Palos” is the opening track on the album and serves as the perfect introduction to the nine tracks ahead. Something about the subtle sweetness of the guitar reminds me of Lost Frequencies‘ “Are You With Me,” and I love it.


I typically try to use new-ish tracks on this series, but this one is an exception. I found StarGuy and Flamingo‘s remix of Rihanna‘s “Kiss It Better” last week after hearing it in StarGuy’s StarCast mix with Lenno and have had it stuck in my head ever since. It’s a few months old, but its old-school disco vibes bring a funky twist to the modern song.
