Diplo announces new six-cut EP, ‘Europa,’ due Feb. 22Diplo Mon MVMT18 Bryan Mitchell 199

March 2018 saw Diplo deliver California, a seven-track effort that emanated the warmth of the EP’s namesake state. Diplo’s first solo production since 2013’s Revolution, the collaboratively diverse EP coalesced the likes of Lil Yachty, Goldlink, , and more for an effervescent showing that continues to fizz with sonic personality, even as Diplo announces the imminent arrival of California followup, Europa.

Poised for a Feb. 22 debut, Europa will transport four Diplo originals from the electronic chameleon’s studio to listeners’ speakers. Diplo diffused some of Europa‘s sound two preliminary singles from the six-track, European inspired EP, “Boom Bye Bye” with Niska,” and most recently, “New Shapes” with UK hip-hop entity, Octavian. The remaining four cuts will call upon the talents of Soolking, IAMDDB, Bizzey & Ramiks, and Bausa. Diplo has continually proven his musical craft to be the antithesis to creative pigeonholing, and as such, fans can expect Europa to be a project that only further exemplifies Diplo’s commitment to conceptual and artistic versatility.

From Montreal’s Igloofest, to the gone-but-never-forgotten Brrrrr Winter Music Festival in Toronto, Canadians are incredibly fortunate to host a plenitude of outdoor-winter events throughout the years. Though winter is close to being over and the inaugural start to festival season approaches, Snowbombing Canada is here to remind everyone that there’s never a wrong time to party in the snow.

Fusing the worlds of winter-sports and dance music into a winter-wonderland for four days and nights, Snowbombing Canada takes place from April 5–9 amidst Sun Peaks Valley; one of the hidden treasures of Canada’s West coast. With success in booking distinguished and complementary dance/hip-hop headliners, last year’s event saw Kaskade and Ludacris close out the event.

As the 2018 edition nears, fan-favorite duo ODESZA and hip-hop queen Cardi B are set to headline the “Forest Stage”, appropriately located in between the panoramic views of snow-capped mountains and towering trees. Boasting a plethora of additional acts like Black Tiger Sex Machine, Gorgon City and Troyboi, Snowbombing has curated a detailed lineup that suits the festival’s exuberant vibe.

Snowboarders and skiers are treated to the best of both worlds; shredding during the day and dancing at night. Activities like ‘Alpine Yoga’, ‘The Snowlympics’ and some cheeky ‘Chair Life Speed Dating’ add unique attributes that turn guests from attendees, into Snowbombing veterans.

In the midst of all the 2018 Grammy Awards blowback, mainly pertaining to Kendrick Lamar failing to win Album of the Year, LA-based producer Yung Bae puts an old-school funk spin on the beloved rapper’s track “DNA.” Along with edits of Rich Chigga and Goldlink, this continues the producer’s trend of remixing hip-hop tracks.

Hailing from Portland, Yung Bae’s diverse sound ranges from future funk to Japanese-inspired pop, adding a groovier beat-style to the original, including vintage horn samples, a toned-down drum beat and subtle bass.
