Hottt Dance Trax, April 2013
Lest there be any doubt about it, expect this to be the summer of crossover. One of the biggest songs in EDM right now is Alesso's remix of social-media-savvy OneRepublic's "If I Lose Myself." Afrojack invited Chris Brown to throw a pity party over the moody "As Your Friend." And then there's Arianna's globe-trotting "Sexy People (The Fiat Song)," a vintage-inspired electro-swing number that connects Sorrento to Cuba via a guest spot from Mr. Worldwide himself, Pitbull. (Scoff if you must, but it's currently No. 5 on Billboard's Dance/Club Play chart.) Even Dillon Francis is, inexplicably, turning to synth pop on his new single, "Messages." Listen to those, along with big new tunes from Hard Rock Sofa, Avicii, Moguai, Flosstradamus and more.
