It wasn’t too long ago that Diplo made his skyrocketing trajectory through the blogosphere by means of his Major Lazer project. Since then he has released a hefty amount of well thought out and original remixes along with some original star-studded singles of his own. Today we’ll take a look of one his recent remix projects which is a set of two complimentary tracks that go to show that with hard work, a subtle ear, and fresh perspective any song can be effectively remixed… even classics.
[Note: These two picks are originally one large track but they are now split. Hit play on 2 as soon as 1 ends.]
Pick 1: The Cure – Love Song (Diplo Remix)
Pick 2: Outkast – B.O.B. (Diplo Remix)
And I have provided a bonus below from North Carolina’s Dreams West. This little gem takes the concept of tape bending and subtly employs it to compliment the lo-fi ride that is Shells.
Bonus**: Dreams West – Shells
Until Next Time.
