Three Loco – “We Are Farmers” (Feat. Diplo) Video

The video for Three Loco's "We Are Farmers" -- the collaboration between Riff Raff, Andy Milonakis and Dirt Nasty that samples the Farmers Insurance theme, obviously -- goes in places both literal and ridiculous, wherein we find the three doing farm chores before kicking back to watch Diplo on a handset television. It's everything… More »

Three Loco – “We Are Farmers (Feat. Diplo)”

Three Loco is something of a supergroup that features rappers/meme mavens Andy Milonakis, Dirt Nasty and Riff Raff, and the original version of "We Are Farmers," a cut that samples the Farmers Insurance theme, has been around since late last year. So, what makes this incarnation of the track particularly notable is that… More »

From T.I. To TNGHT: A Look At Trap Rave

Do a search for "trap" on SoundCloud and you'll find more than 500 tracks uploaded with the tag in the last three days. What's interesting, though, are the labels that show up with the most frequency in the similar tags section: "bass," "club," "dance," "dj," "dubstep," and "electronic" appear right below the expected "rap," "hip-hop,"… More »

Major Lazer Free The Universe Details

Usher – “Climax (Dave Sitek Remix)”

Sound wizard/TVOTR member Dave Sitek takes Usher and Diplo's "Climax" in a much more harrowing direction in his remix of the track, which is saying a lot because the original is pretty pain-filled as is. It makes Usher sound out of place, in an interesting way, and the cold, strangely futuristic sounds Sitek use… More »

Bonde Do Rolê – “Kilo” Video

Brazilian baile-funk art-kids Bonde Do Rolê were the first act that Diplo signed to Mad Decent, but we haven't heard from them in a while.

Last summer we posted a photo from Major Lazer's visit to No Doubt laboratories, where Diplo and Switch made nice with Gwen Stefani's crew and, according to @NoDoubt's tweet that day, worked on a collabo track called "Push And Shove."

Skrillex, Diplo, & Grimes Touring Canada By Train

The best live act I saw at SXSW is touring Canada by train, and he's taking Diplo and Grimes with him! By now, the fact that I love Skrillex has passed into some sort of Stereogum-infamy history, but seriously, Canadians, if you get a chance, watch this guy melt the faces of vast number… More »

Usher – “Climax” Video

Earlier this year, Usher linked with Diplo to make "Climax," a pretty amazing heartbroken R&B track with masterful dance-music flourishes and an excellently subtle string arrangement from indie-classical wunderkind Nico Muhly. It's an early contender for single of the year and a fine reminder that, no matter what you may think of Usher and/or Diplo,… More »

PO PO was once a trio of Pakistani brothers from Philly who recalled "the Germs or Black Lips or various strains of garage punk" on first blush, long ago at Bowery, opening for Wavves and Real Estate.

Stereogum Monthly Mix: February 2012

February's Monthly Mix makes up for the grievous error in January's Monthly Mix, namely having omitted Bear In Heaven's "Reflection Of You." No offense (none taken). That song's great! Here it comes flowing out of Violens' smooth and shifty new wave, and into Diplo's bounce showcase "Express Yourself," which in turn dives into Ceremony'… More »
