The hottest electronic dance music to kickoff your weekend starts here:

1. Disclosure – “January” (Kaytranada Edition)
Montreal’s Kaytranada reworks January to create a reverberating twinkling beat.

2. Luniz – “I Got 5 On It” (WHIIITE & ETC!ETC! Remix)
WHIITE and ETC!ETC! hook us up with THE weekend jam, a hot new twist on the classic Luniz jam “I Got 5 On It”. Cop it (free).

3. The Game vs. Cro – “Easy” (Wekeed Boot)
Wekeed celebrates one million soundcloud plays with a free download titled, “Easy.” Taken from their MEEXTAPE #1, the French duo slap on vocal stylings over a classic 50 Cent favorite, et voilà!

4. FIGHT CLVB – Sticks And Stones Volume 1
FIGHT CLVB pack a hell of a punch. In a fierce round-one, the New York trio knock us out with new and unreleased tunes; an energetic combination just in time to rally this weekend.

5. Sander van Doorn – “Neon” (Ummet Ozcan Remix)
Sugar and spice and everything nice. The always-smiling Sander van Doorn mixed in all the best ingredients for “Neon.” Now, Ummet Ozcan transforms the Spinnin’ single, plentiful of a sweeping orchestra of chello, flutes, and echoing synths into a full-blown electro banger.

6. Yolanda Be Cool feat. SYF & Fritz Helder – “All That She Wants”
The Australian duo Yolanda Be Cool take on Ace of Base’s dance classic and reimagine it in an unlikely fashion. Featuring vocals by SYF & Fritz Helder (formerly of Azarii & III), the updated tune emanates a cool and brooding vibe and will be released via Dim Mak in February as part of a remix EP. Sneak a peek.

7. Cedric Gervais & CID – “Never Come Close”
Cedric Gervais and CID collaborate for their festival-sized banger “Never Come Close”. Think major impact with a deep dark kick drum, bouncing accompanying synth lines, and fat electro production. Cop it.

8. David Dallas feat. Jim Jones – “Runnin” (Remix)
Taken from Dallas’ Falling Into Place album, the chilled-out “Runnin” gets the remix treatment compliments of Fire and Ice. Burn one and play loud.

9. DJ Jounce Mix Episode 06
LA-based DJ Jounce electrifies with a brightly lit December Episode 06.
