Puro Instinct is getting attention thanks to the release of the new single "Dream Lover," the duo's first work since 2011's debut album Headbangers In Ecstasy. The single is thought to feature on an as yet unnamed EP out later this year. The 405 describes the track as "nostalgic and hard to classify."
Also entering Wednesday's charts is Dillon Francis, after the artist dropped a genre blending refix of his single "Masta Blasta" called "Masta Blaster (Rebirth)" which Mad Decent described as "Trap meets Moombah" while Dani Deahl calls it "an epic track that has us all begging to get a little crazier."
