NMF Roundup: Madeon reveals ‘Good Faith,’ deadmau5 takes to the skies on ‘SATRN’ + moreDeadmau5 Cube 3.0

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.

At long last, Madeon’s sophomore LP, Good Faith, has arrived. Though it’s been long-anticipated, the electronic music community didn’t have time to anticipate new deadmau5, which dropped out of thin air on Nov. 15. Dillon Francis’ Magic Is Real makes a full appearance alongside these, tapping artists like Vera Hotsauce for “Barely Breathing.” MK and Sonny Fodera link with Raphaella for “One Night,” and Chris Lake and Solardo “Free Your Body” on their latest. GRiZ’s Bangers[4].Zip has arrived, featuring songs like “Tiger Kingdom Space Camp,” and MJ Cole’s remixed Flume and Vera Blue’s “Rushing Back.” Friction delivers some drum ‘n’ bass goodness on “Good To Me,” and Eli Brown puts his own spin on Dom Dolla’s “San Frandisco.” Snails, Kill The Noise, and Sullivan King team up for a new mega-collab, “Front 2 Back,” and NGHTMRE and Gunna bring the heat with “CASH COW.” Gammer returns to Monstercat for “Brostep Strikes Back,” and Klingande releases his long-awaited debut LP, The Album. Oliver Heldens links with Firebeatz, Schella, and Carla Monroe for “Lift Me Up,” and Dirty South and Marion Amira prove a formidable force on “All I Need.” Dillon Nathaniel goes deep on a new tech house heater, “Do It Again,” and R3HAB teams up with ZAYN and Jungleboi on “Flames.”

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.

Lizzo“HAVE U EVER SEEN A BITCH PLAY FLUTE THEN HIT THE SHOOT?” It was a reasonable question.
