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.

Kygo’s 2013 remix of Henry Green’s ‘Electric Feel’ is now on Spotify

This post was originally published on this site

Many moons ago in October 2013, as one may recall, Kygo added his signature tropical house Midas touch to Henry Green‘s sultry cover of “Electric Feel.” Despite the remix being posted to both YouTube and SoundCloud, Kygo never received official clearance by the record labels in order for the song to end up on streaming platforms such as Spotify, Apple Music and Tidal.

The time has finally arrived four years later where Kygo’s take on “Electric Feel” can be added to any playlist, delivering endless summer vibes for listeners who want to groove to an easy beat, gentle guitar riffs, and soothing vocals. Kygo’s latest addition to Spotify follows the premiere of his documentary, “Stole The Show,” which debuted a couple of weeks ago at NYC’s Metrograph. With the warm remix of Henry Green’s “Electric Feel” resurfacing from the earlier stages of his career, we are reminded once again why we fell in love with Kygo from the start.

The Hot 25: August 4, 2017

This post was originally published on this site

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.
