Dance Songs fared in this year’s Hottest 100

The Hottest 100 of 2017 is officially done and dusted, with Kendrick Lamar  taking out the top spot with his hit track ‘HUMBLE.’

It turned out to be a significant year for acts, with fourteen of the top 20 tracks coming from musicians — three of those from Sydney group Gang of Youths. All up, 65 places in the countdown went to functions — one down from the record-breaking number of last year.

It was a good   year for the dance scene as well.   A variety of locals featured at the end of the countdown, such as Pnau at #7 using ‘Go Bang’, also Peking Duk at #12 and #20 using ‘Fake Magic’ and ‘Let You Down’.

Up, 13 dance tracks made it into the poll, including   Touch Sensitive’s ‘Lay Down’, Hayden James’ ‘NUMB’, Flight Facilities’ ‘Arty Boy’, also Camelphat along with Elderbrook’s ubiquitous hit ‘Cola‘. The comeback of the Preset hit ‘Do What You Want’ came at # 93 in late, also Sydney duo Vallis Alps appeared after at #84.

A bunch of local favourites like Slumberjack, Alison Wonderland, and Motez just missed out of creating the countdown and wound up in the Hottest 200.  So close.
