Tunes of the Month – Hottest Tracks of January 2024

These are the songs that shaped our month, from work to the club, and back.

To some, each January feels eternal. To others, it goes by in the blink of an eye. However the passing of the first month of the year feels to you, the fact is, it can set a precedent for the other months that are to come. And artists know that. We’ve had the pleasure of covering tons of new music set for release during the recently gone January, from the calmest to the most energetic. What’s more, a few IDs have made their first appearances, too.

For all that new music shaping the Dance scene, we’ve decided to make a little recap highlighting those tunes we can’t get out of our heads. So sit back, put on your best set of headphones, and read on, as we unveil our top tracks of the first month of 2024.


Genre(s): Tech House
Release Date: January 26th, 2024
Mood(s): Groovy, Tense

An unreleased original for close to a year, Mau P‘s ‘BEATS FOR THE UNDERGROUND‘ arrived just in time for a feature on our January list. The Tech House maestro has delivered banger after banger for years now, and shows no signs of stopping — actually, he just announced a LV residency, too. If you were desperately repeating his recorded sets to give this one a play, good news: you can finally add it to your playlists.

4. Justice & Tame Impala — One Night/All Night

Genre(s): Electro Pop, French House
Release Date: January 24th, 2024
Mood(s): Funky, Sexy

Unsurprisingly, the news of the return of French Electronic duo Justice to the industry has been received with excitement and open arms. What’s more impressive, is the fact that they’re coming back with an entire album, Hyperdrama, later in the year. And what’s even more impressive, is that the first EP lifted from the album contains a collaboration with no other than Tame Impala. The kings of the past meet the warmest retro sound the world has seen in the last years, and they all join forces for a track that is, at the very least, infectiously catchy.

3. Anyma & PARISI feat. Wishpig — Pictures Of You [UNRELEASED]

Genre(s): Melodic Techno
Release Date: February 9th, 2024 (Confirmed)
Mood(s): Epic, Energetic

New rhythms, giant screens, and a man who’s been at the forefront of the whole pairing music with custom visuals practice. We’re of course talking about Anyma. The Melodic Techno giant is on a roll, on the heels of his 2023 album Genesys — picked by our team as Album Of The Year — and the neverending rise of the Afterlife imprint. ‘Pictures Of You‘ or ‘Pictures Of You Without Me‘ is his latest piece, set to see the light of day this very Friday. Until then, have a grasp of the full experience by watching this fan-recorded video below.

2. The Temper Trap – Sweet Disposition (John Summit & Silver Panda Remix)

Genre(s): Tech House
Release Date: January 26th, 2024
Mood(s): Groovy, Happy

Currently sitting comfortably as the top track in all of Beatport, the conjoint effort of John Summit and duo Silver Panda hasn’t gone unnoticed. Since we listened to their take on the timeless classic that is ‘Sweet Disposition‘ back on Summit’s Essential Mix, we couldn’t stop singing it. “A moment, a love, a dream, aloud, a kiss, a cry, our rights, our wrongs“…

Honorable Mentions

As a month with quite a substantial amount of new music, there was a ton of material which, even though didn’t make the cut into our list, shouldn’t be overlooked: our favourite Dutch Melodic duo Tinlicker unveiled ‘Nothing To Lose‘, featuring Circa Waves; living legend Steve Angello released a solo track ‘ME‘; ARTBAT and Another Life teamed up for ‘In Your Arms‘; Techno queen Charlotte de Witte breathed new life into the absolute Push classic ‘Universal Nation‘; and NERO returned to their Drum and Bass sound with ‘Blame You‘.

1. Sharam – Patt (Party All The Time) (Adam Beyer & Layton Giordani Remix) [UNRELEASED]

Genre(s): Techno (Peak Time)
Release Date: N/A
Mood(s): Banging, Happy

It’s being played everywhere lately! And we’re not mad about it. Two expert Techno crafters have, allegedly, come together once again to remix an absolute classic: Sharam‘s ‘Patt‘. Adam Beyer and Layton Giordani are to blame if the motif you thought you were over for good, has suddenly come back to your head. We don’t blame you — it happened to us too. “My girl wants to party all the time, party all the time, party all the time“. Yeah, it’s time for us to give the set below a play for the tenth time today. Be sure to locate the 01:41:48 mark.
