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.

Diplo leads the charge this NMF with a sultry remix of Kaskade, Felix Cartal and Jenn Blosil’s “More,” and Spencer Brown previews deadmau5’s forthcoming here’s the drop! remix LP with his take on “fn pig (ov).” Cashmere Cat’s sophomore album makes its debut on Sept. 20, featuring song like the Christina Aguilera-sampled “WATERGIRL,” and Chris Lorenzo takes on Boombox Cartel and MadeinTYO’s “NEW WIP.” M83’s much-anticipated 15-song DSVII is out now, featuring songs like “Feelings,” and Kill Paris puts an even groovier spin on Haywyre’s already-funky “Storyteller.” Opiuo and Lafa Taylor shine in “Send It,” and Muzzy tackles Knife Party’s “Ghost Train” with a sinister rendition of his own. Billy Kenny and Huxley take to the dance floor on “SWEAT,” and Feenixpawl and Marcus Santoro bring the feels with “Forever Young.” Cristoph puts his own spin on The Temper Trap’s “Sweet Disposition,” and Dom Dolla plays with words on “San Frandisco.” David Guetta remixes himself as Jack Back in a new remix of “Thing For You,” and Luttrell paints a serene soundscape with his remix of Jai Wolf and Mr Gabriel’s “Lose My Mind.”

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.

Often times, a remix effort overcompensates in order to try and do the original justice, it happens time and time again — luckily, that isn’t the case with Midnight Kids‘ remix of The Temper Trap’s iconic “Sweet Disposition.”

Midnight Kids are a relatively new duo that has locked in impressive official remixes for the likes of The Chainsmokers, Zedd, and Louis The Child, recently amassing over 1 million streams on SoundCloud without any original music out yet. The mysterious duo radiates fresh energy from tune to tune as they infuse each remixed track with their uniquely upbeat melodies and crafty productions.

“We listened to this song in times when we were down or lost and really had no other option than to just get lost in the music,” the duo says of their remix. “We all go through hard times and have that song we listen to. Well this is that song for us.”

Midnight Kids’ take on The Temper Trap‘s “Sweet Disposition” is marked by a beautifully crafted atmospheric appeal, designed to pulls on the listeners’ heartstrings. The track’s lyrical accents melt on top of swelling percussion builds, introducing a goosebump-inducing drop that’s primed for summer dance floor action.
