Diplo is a superstar, there is no doubt about that. He may be the hardest working man in dance music. At the front lines of Mad Decent‘s world domination, delivering his weekly Saturday night shakedown over BBC Radio 1’s airwaves, with block parties, boat parties, and everything in between somehow the main stage mayhem maker still has time to salute loyal fans in the best way possible. Music. A whole bunch of it. For free.
To commemorate reaching one million followers on Facebook, Diplo and some of his friends deliver a nine track bootleg pack pro bono that is absolutely loaded with heaters for the coming summer months. The bootleg pack dips and weaves through a grip of genres, leaving no taste unsatisfied. A pulverizing trap gem collaboration with Grandtheft, “Pretty With Her Eyes Low” offers a grimy down-tempo appeal with clean hip-hop sampling and a bombastic break. Party Favor‘s explosive twerk inspired edit of Diplo’s classic rump shaker “Express Yourself” is sure to become a festival anthem. A joint effort with Jeffrees producer Davoodi, “Badman” comes through as a sort of Belgian born industrial hard style techno hybrid.
Wes leaves no stone unturned offering dance hall beats and glitch-hop on the same edit pack, but ultimately that is quintessential Diplo. And with one million thumbs up to prove it, Diplo shows us once again why he is the man.
