A Certain Philly-based DJ

14 Feb

If you have not yet heard of Diplo, here’s your chance to catch up. If you have, you know he’s the mastermind behind some productions for M.I.A., Santigold, and even rapper Gucci Mane. His work has developed a new sound unique to many listeners. Here are a few tracks that he has produced and remixed that are sure to get your head bobbing. Enjoy.

Sleigh Bells- Tell Em (Diplo Remix)

This is Diplo’s latest remix done for Sleigh Bells track “Tell Em.” Once you listen to the original track, then compare it to Diplo’s remix, it’ll really start to grow on you.

Santogold – Starstruck (Diplo Remix)

Although this is an older track, it has not disappointed me to this day. It comes from Diplo’s Top Ranking Mixtape which primarily consists of remixes of Santi’s album “Santogold” by other DJs under Diplo’s record label Mad Decent.

Gucci Mane – Danger’s Not A Stranger (Diplo Remix)

Gucci Mane’s music isn’t the type I’d listen to right off the bat. But if you listen to the mixtape “Diplo Presents: Free Gucci,” some of the beats are hard to ignore. After a couple of listens, you can’t help but pay acknowledgment to the lyrics. This particular track is an example of that. Compared to the original, this version kills it. British DJ, Sinden recently released a sequel mixtape, “Sinden Presents: Free Gucci 2 – The Burrrtish Edition.” Both are packed with bass-filled tracks that are sure to delight you, so be sure to check them out.

Finally – my personal favorite Diplo remix to date. What gets me the most about this remix is that it was completely transformed into a dance song and it works perfectly.

I hope enthusiasm about Diplo has been built. The guy really deserves some props!
