'Diplo'—the prolific artist's self-titled new album and first full-length of electronic/dance music in 18 years—is the realization of a three-year deep dive into the house music that first blew Diplo's mind as a teenager and that he has now founded Higher Ground to champion worldwide. A titan of electronic music, he’s now turned his focus back to these roots. The album includes the Grammy-nominated “On My Mind” with Sidepiece, "Don't Forget My Love" with Miguel, “Looking For Me” and “Promises” with Paul Woolford and Kareen Lomax, “Don’t Be Afraid” with Jungle and Damian Lazarus and “One By One” with Elderbrook and Andhim—classic house records that have soundtracked the reopening of clubs worldwide—as well as new collaborations with Aluna, TSHA, Leon Bridges, Lil Yachty, Busta Rhymes, Seth Troxler, Amtrac, RY X and more.
the term "tour de force" gets thrown around frequently, but i can think of no more apt description for an album of this quality. walls of emotion laced with delicately crafted touches of acidic 303, plastered in basslines and breakbeats that pull zero punches. absolutely massive in every way. Oh!Juicy骸骨\(°o°;)/
It took a bit of time to grow on me, but wow, do I love this album now. Really cannot get enough :)
The production is incredible, it comes with a big sound that makes you go "wow"! A welcome progression in ODESZA's style. micyp
