Diplo, Steve Aoki, & Deorro – “Freak” (Feat. Steve Bays) Video (NSFW)

Next month, Diplo will release a new compilation of recent tracks called Random White Dude Be Everywhere. One of those tracks is "Freak," a full-on EDM pounder that unites Diplo with a few guys who are, like him, very much of the Ultra Music Festival scene, Steve Aoki and Deorro, as well as Hot Hot… More »

Riff Raff – “Kokayne” (Prod. Diplo)

By all accounts, Riff Raff really does plan to release Neon Icon, his forever-in-the-works official debut, next month. First single "How To Be The Man" united Riff with radio-rap man-of-the-moment DJ Mustard but somehow didn't turn him into the next Tyga. Maybe he'll have better luck with the new single "Kokayne," produced by Riff'… More »

The Week In Pop: John Legend Reaches Peak Normalcy

Is he really a legend or isn't he? There's no doubt John Legend is a music industry power-player, the kind of safe yet pliable talent who moves in many circles, who appeals to many demographics, who's such a lock to appear at the Grammys every year that he inspired this genius tweet from our ow… More »

Watch Pharrell’s Star-Studded Coachella Performance

While the most famous thing by far on the Coachella stage was Pharrell's hat, the man himself managed to wrangle up enough star power to compete. Last night's performance was a revolving door of celebrities including guest appearances from Nelly ("Hot In Herre"), Snoop Dogg (Lion, whatever) ("Drop It Like It's Hot" & "Beautiful"),… More »

Outkast, Chance The Rapper, Run The Jewels Playing 2014 Mad Decent Block Parties

Here's at least one more of Outkast's 40 festival appearances this year. The newly expanded traveling Mad Decent Block Party features different lineups on different dates, and the Denver stop will be headlined by none other than Big Boi and Andre 3000. Other performers throughout the tour include Chance The Rapper, Action Bronson, Ru… More »

Frank Ocean, Mick Jones, Paul Simonon, & Diplo – “Hero”

The biggest Frank Ocean story Friday, before news broke that Chipotle is suing him, was the impending arrival of a new Converse-sponsored collaboration with Diplo and Clash members Mick Jones and Paul Simonon. That song is here now. It's called "Hero," and it presents a classic Ocean vocal against a retro-futurist sound that… More »

Frank Ocean, Mick Jones, Paul Simonon, & Diplo Write A Song For Converse

Converse do a good job of integrating their brand among music types. If you're at SXSW next week, for instance, you will see no shortage of One-Star logos plastered across Austin. (You probably have a reasonable chance of going home with a free pair of Chucks or two, honestly.) Anyway, the sneaker company will head… More »

Major Lazer – “Lose Yourself” (Feat. Moska & RDX) Video

For "Lose Yourself," a song from the new Apocalypse Soon EP, Diplo's Major Lazer project brought in help from the dance producer Moska and the be-suited, fauxhawked dancehall duo RDX. In the song's brand-new video, Diplo, Moska, and a group of very energetic dancers visit a forest and an abandoned church. Goats show up. More »

Diplo – “Biggie Bounce” Video + “Drunk in Love” Remix

Chances are no one at Georgia's Mableton Moose Lodge knew who Diplo was when he showed up to shoot the video for "Biggie Bounce," but they probably won't forget him anytime soon. The producer arrived with featured rappers Travis Porter and Angger Dimas in tow, along with some dancers who tried their best to twerk… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

Dance producers were getting it done this week. There were so many great dance (or dance-influenced pop) videos this week that I wish MTV would reboot Amp so that stoned college kids could come home after parties and zone out while discovering them, the way some of us might've done once upon a time. I… More »

Diplo – “Revolution” Video

Last year, Diplo released his Revolution EP, and the honking, dubsteppy title track -- a collaboration with Faustix, Imanos, and Kai -- gets its own video today. The clip is full of vivid but disconnected imagery: Nightclub bacchanals, speeding motorcycles, feverish Pentecostal services, boxers warming up, glass breaking, office drones getting baked. I would… More »

Major Lazer – “Sweat” Video (Feat. Laidback Luke & Ms. Dynamite)

"Sweat," a pounding collaboration with the Dutch producer Laidback Luke and the British rapper Ms. Dynamite, was one of the increasingly few tracks on Major Lazer's sophomore album Free The Universe that didn't have a music video, and that changes today. The visually striking clip, from director Ryan Staake, consists almost entirely of painted… More »

Grizzly Bear – “Will Calls (Diplo Remix)”

"Will Calls (Marfa Demo)" heralded the release of Shields Expanded, the deluxe reissue of Grizzly Bear's 2012 opus, and proved that the aborted Texas recording sessions that kicked off the album's creation narrative weren't a complete bust after all. Diplo's club-ready version of "Will Calls" further shows its worth, ramping up the beast'… More »

Q&A: Wayne Coyne On The New Flaming Lips EPs, Passing Off The Space Bubble To Diplo, And His Rivalry With Arcade Fire

We already spoke to Wayne Coyne once this year and turned him loose on the turntables, but the Flaming Lips have had such a whirlwind 2013 that they merit yet another check-in. Since releasing The Terror, the Lips have been on a tear: They recorded a pair of new EPs: aMore »

Sia – “Elastic Heart” (Feat. The Weeknd & Diplo)

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is a teenager-targeted blockbuster movie about control and calculation and heartlessness and struggle, so maybe it's appropriate that the Weeknd shows up on a couple of tracks on the movie's soundtrack. Other than Coldplay's "Atlas," the first song we've heard from that soundtrack is "Elastic Heart," from the… More »

Diplo – “Revolution” (Feat. Faustix, Imanos, & Kai)

A Diplo EP would already sound like a party, but his upcoming Revolution EP feels especially like that just by the sheer number of guests he's invited. We're still waiting to hear how Action Bronson, RIFF RAFF, and Mr. Muthafuckin' eXquire will fit into his productions, but for now we have the bumping title track… More »

MØ – “XXX 88″ Video

The icy Danish pop singer MØ appeared on our radar earlier this year with "Glass," but she jumped up another level with the fearsome Diplo-produced banger "XXX 88." And someone spent some serious money on the song's just-released video, which stars MØ as a suburban teenager who imagines herself as some sort of… More »
