April 02 2015
One of the biggest weeks in EDM is done and dusted and while you are either wrapped up in a blanket recovering from a massive week of partying, or suffering from the worst case of FOMO ever, we decided to count down the 10 tracks that dominated Miami Music Week.
10. Galantis – Runaway
One of the hottest acts to come out of the Sweden is this collaboration between Style of Eye and Christian Karlsson of Miike Snow. Their recent EP has dominated the US with their revitalised big room sounds and it was no surprise that their lead single Runaway would be a huge success in front of the UMF crowd.
9. Justin Martin & Ardalan ft PartyPatty – Function
The crew over at Dirtybird records are just smashing out the hits right now. Celebrating their 10th Year in the game, Claude Von Stroke and friends have delivered a compilation album that has been turning heads with a bunch of brand new nightclub burners. Legendary Dirtybird labelmate Justin Martin has offered up this light-hearted, booty bouncing jam that caused havoc at Disclosure's Wild Life party.
8. Martin Solveig and GTA – Intoxicated
Martin Solveig may have been left out of the Ultra Music Festival lineup, but that didn't stop his latest collaboration with GTA from getting a serious run on the Ultra mainstage.
7. Flosstradamus & GTA feat. Lil Jon – Prison Riot
Flosstradamus are undoubtedly the hottest act in the world right now, and while they were too busy rocking their HDYNATION vibes in Australia, one of their unreleased gems with GTA and Lil Jon, Prison Riot was one of the most played tracks, and made appearances in the sets of Skrillex, Milo & Otis, GTA and Yellow Claw. Keep an eye out for this release. While Prison Riot is unreleased, have a listen to the neighbouring single from their upcoming EP Soundclash.
6. Martin Garrix Ft. Usher – Don't Look Down
We can't fault this kid right now. He is literally conquering the world. Martin Garrix unveiled his latest tropical collaboration with R&B megastar Usher to bring one of the most memorable moments of Ultra Music Festival.
5. Eric Prydz Vs CHVRCHES – Tether
Eric Prydz has continued his legacy of offering crowd thumping tracks with his latest release Tether which remains true to his style. One of the most respected mainstage producers, Eric Prydz took to the ASOT stage in Miami to bring the audience something much more darker.
4. Kygo – Firestone ft. Conrad
Kygo has been ruling 2015 with his tropical house phenomenon and amongst a massive UMF show, Kygo was also the star of his own rooftop showcase where he performed an acoustic version of this little beauty.
3. Valentino Khan – Deep Down Low
One of the dark horses of Ultra Music Festival, Valentino Khan's track Deep Down Low was the most played track at the festival, and a favourite amongst artists such as DJ Snake, Axwell ^ Ingrosso and Zedds Dead.
2. Axwell x Ingrosso – Can't Hold Us Down
Axwell and Ingrosso and have proven that their life after Swedish House Mafia is only getting stronger with their latest album and this main room anthem. Expect to see this track on every mainstage around the globe.
1. Major Lazer & DJ Snake – Lean On Ft. MØ
Finding the balance between festival banger and commercial hit, DJ Snake finished his set with his Major Lazer collaboration and ultimately what is going to be the biggest track of the American Summer.
