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]

As if the Diplo & GTA collaboration Boy Oh Boy wasn’t huge enough for your ears, twerk master TWRK has put his own signature spin on the club-ready rowdyness. 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.

Get Your Track Played by Diplo on Diplo & Friends

There’s no question that Diplo is well on his way to building an empire. The arms of his reach extend from live events, industry production, and label head to solo artist, member of Major Lazer as well as purveyor of his own radio show Diplo & Friends on BBC Radio 1. Thomas Wesley Pentz is now giving some lucky upcoming producers a chance to get their tracks featured on the 2/23 show and as far as placements go, this is a big one. Be sure to submit your track for consideration before the deadline at midday on 2/10 and you may just hear your own production on the show!

Mac Miller – Goosebumpz (Prod. by Diplo)

It’s safe to say that I didn’t know what to expect when I saw that Mac Miller collaborated with Diplo for a track off Macadelic’s upcoming album Watching Movies With The Sound Off. If you told me that it would be an absolutely absurd track featuring bird calls and sounds like an elephant march of trumpets and profanity, I don’t really think I would’ve have been surprised. I love the track and am really excited for the whole project which drops on the same day as projects from Kanye West & J. Cole; you can hear Mac speaking on that as well as his beef with Donald Trump and the re-emergency of the album up top.

Diplo & Swick – Keep It Gully EP

Diplo & Swick - Keep It Gully EP

Tell me who’s better at finding top talent from all corners of the globe than Diplo. The man has reached to the island of Australia to work with upcoming producer Swick to release the 3 track Keep It Gully EP.

Diplo states” Swicks vibe is always a bit more broken liquid and thats how we keep that 4×4 uptempo fresh and bangin.” On the B-side “Dat A Freak” feat. TT The ARTIST & Lewis Cancut” is an egyptian twurk anthem for the ladies and just for fun we threw in the dub version as well for all the late night underground ravers.
