Diplo & Alvaro – 6th Gear (GRRL Remix) [TNJ001]

For the fourth release off Jam Family Records Vol. 1, we have a contribution from North Carolina-based breath of fresh air GRRL. With remixes of Rustie to The Chainsmokers to Spooky Black to countless originals, there’s nothing to love about this TNJ favorite.

GRRL: Tumblr | Twitter | SoundCloud

GRRL’s contribution is a straight club-crushing remix of Diplo & Alvaro’s track 6th Gear. With blaring marching band whistles, quirky synth runs and the feel of a frantic video-game marching band, this remix is the perfect way to take your dance floor to the next level.

This Yellow Claw Video Is Infinitely More Effective Than EZOO’s PSA

This collaboration between Yellow Claw, Diplo, LNY TNZ & Waka Flocka Flame came across my attention a couple days ago and I kinda breezed over it as another “trap banger”.  Granted, this is an absolute BANGER but at a moment when the market for ignorant turnup music is kinda saturated, I could safely say I wasn’t looking to get rowdy during my daily 11am SoundCloud binge.  Today, I came across this video with the caption “A thousand times more effective than EZOO’s PSA in my opinion…” and that was enough to catch my attention.  With harm reduction and risk management seeming to be the most likely alternative to follow the current dominating policy of feigned ignorance, anything that adds to that conversation deserves a moment.

To lead off, big ups has to go to whoever conceptualized this whole idea because it isn’t until you see the video that the message comes through.  Having Waka Flocka yelling how his “trap is going techno” is the perfect hook to serve as a tongue in cheek reference to the fact that rappers are now influenced by dance music more than ever as well as the fact that the “trap game” has switched up to cater to this new influx of “EDM”.  While the Electric Zoo public service announcement was certainly well-intentioned, the message should focus on what an enormous risk it is that you don’t know what those substances are and how they got there until you test it, not just berating the “You can have fun without drugs!” message.  The sonics of ‘Techno’ suggest a straight club banger that eventually even grows into a full hardstyle production, peep the video and follow the storyline that will change this turnup anthem into a serious warning about what you put into your body.

Dawn Golden – All I Want (Diplo Remix)

In case anyone was confused, the whole reason that the man Diplo is the mover and shaker that he is in the current music landscape is due to the fact that he is an out of control talented producer. The man behind the sounds of M.I.A., Major Lazer, Mad Decent, his own music, that song Climax by Usher and about 1329847298374 other things that you would recognize has a golden ear and this latest remix of Dawn Golden is no exception. Mixing elements of indie, hip-hop, trap music and whatever else runs through that brain of his, this song can be purchased on the Dawn Golden EP or streamed via SoundCloud!

SoundCloud Just Got ‘Diplo Approved’

Man of the moment Diplo has crafted himself quite a little empire since breaking into the spotlight in the early 2000’s with M.I.A.. He’s always just a bit ahead of the curve sonically and has the ability to influence tastes and trends at will so what better way to distill that than with a SoundCloud account dedicated to reposting songs he likes without infringing on his artist page. The first track reposted to the account was the Genesis remix of the Schoolboy Q & Kendrick Lamar collaboartion Collard Greens. Definitely check out the link and give it a follow to see what exactly Diplo’s into lately.

Diplo & GTA – Boy Oh Boy (TWRK Edit) [Free Download]

The release comes as a free download and just in time for HUMP DAAAAAY. Working at the Lincoln Center for the week has left it real hard to find time to post so excuse the brief writeups until next week!

Skrillex and Diplo Debuted a Ton of New Jack U Music At Ultra

There’s something to be said of the “importance” of sets at a festival like Ultra Music Festival. With more of the top talent available to choose from than one might know what to do with, it may be easy for some gems to get lost in the sauce. Looking at the lineup, the name Jack U might not be the first to jump out at you but their set from Ultra was an hour long auditory onslaught that had the crowd on a whole other level. Sprinkled in was new music from Skrillex’s new album Recess like his track Strangers which we featured on this past week’s episode of ThatNewJamFM and the new 3LAU and Botnek collaboration Vikings.

Skrillex & Diplo – Live @ Ultra Music Festival 2014

The combination of Skrillex & Diplo doing a set together is mindblowing in and of itself but these two are in the studio together as well and they chose their set this weekend to debut a bunch of new material including collaborations with Fatman Scoop, new Major Lazer IDs, Jack U IDs and somewhere in there was the HAAASAVENYAAA thing from The Lion King. If nothing else, this set was an hour of damn god music from two of the most talented producers you can find mixed to damn near perfection.

Major Lazer- Apocalypse Soon [Album Stream]

The domination of everything Diplo is continuing, be it his Major Lazer squad, the Mad Decent label or his own personal productions. With their latest project Apocalypse Soon out now and available for streaming, we can safely say this is certified rowdy and just sexy enough to make sure females are moving. They just released the video for’Lose Yourself’, the collaboration with Columbia’s very own Moska and the duo of RDX. With some expectedly sexy Lazerettes handling the dancing and even some goats to join the party, this is a certified banger.

Featured Playlist: Drunk In Love

With Valentine’s Day having just passed us, it seems as though everyone and their mother decided to put their 2 cents into the smash hit that is Drunk In Love. From Kanye West and Diplo giving their own takes to the track’s producer Detail giving the track new life. There have been no shortage of edits of the iconic song including a complete overhaul by The Weeknd (which is my personal favorite).

The playlist also features remixes from T.I. who is still making his claim to remain King of the South as well as remixes from Future and some lesser known names such as DJ Jayhood providing a little Jersey Club edit as well. Be sure to flip through and let us know if we forgot any must have Drunk In Love remixes on our Twitter.

Listen to Diplo and Kanye West’s Drunk In Love Remix

I can imagine this remix of Drunk in Love by Diplo isn’t up for download because it will be a part of an official remix package for Beyonce’s smash single but regardless this will KNOCK in a club. It is a scientific fact that the only person females love more than Diplo is Beyonce and this combination is an absolute win. Will keep this post updated as more information comes regarding release dates.

Beyonce – Drunk In Love (Diplo Remix)

Turns out everyone and their mother wants to lend their 2 cents to this track and none other than Kanye West stepped up to the plate to lend his own verse as well.
