Dance scores again in ‘next’ Hottest 100

The results of triple j’s hottest 100 often prove pretty divisive for folk ‘round these parts, so it was nice to see dance music fare pretty well when the station unveiled their Hottest 100 last week. Unsurprisingly, it was man of the moment Flume who proved the biggest winner, snagging four entries in the countdown including Holdin On at #4 – but the likes of Major Lazer, Calvin Harris and Rudimental all did well too.

Turns out, a lot of dance-y acts also went pretty well in the ‘next’ Hottest 100, the list of tunes that placed 200-101 and missed out on the official countdown. Kicking things off at #200 was Knife Party with Centipede, followed by Shockone’s Chaos Theory at #199. Afrojack and Steve Aoki’s big collaboration No Beef also ranked, as did Swedes Miike Snow, the Bloody Beetroots and rap-rave weirdos Die Antwoord with I Fink You Freeky. Hottest 100 high-rankers Flume, Major Lazer and Hermitude all appeared in the 200-101 list too, but the producer closest to cracking the official countdown was one Porter Robinson, whose anthem Language narrowly missed out at #104. Check out the full list below.
