2019 is a big year for the bass-heads, as Zeds Dead is in full swing since teaming up with Delta Heavy on “Lift You Up.” The drum ‘n’ bass collaboration was followed by reworks of the Billie Eilish hit “bury a friend” and Diplo‘s “Close To Me,” as well as original collaborations with Dion Timmer and, more recently, DROELOE on “Stars Tonight.” However, fans learned over the past few months that these releases are leading towards something bigger on the horizon.

In May, the Toronto-born duo took to Twitter to announce a full collaborative project, confirming that “Rescue” featuring Dion Timmer and Delaney Jane would be included.

Rescue is off an upcoming project we’re putting out where we collaborate with a lot of our friends and artists that we play in our sets. The project kind of embodies the type of feel we’re trying to create with our label Deadbeats,” they wrote.

As label heads, they’ve been commended for building a unique roster of creatives from all over the electronic and bass music spectrum, including 1788-L, BLU J, Grandtheft, and more. With the synergistic work that’s come out of their Deadbeats imprint of late, there’s a lot to look forward to in the upcoming album. The boys took to Twitter to confirm a 10-track remix package for “Lift You Up” will precede the project.

The guys are clearly hard at work, continuing to tour the globe well into Fall 2019. Fans can catch performances at Tomorrowland July 19, HQ2 Beachclub in Atlantic City July 28, Veld Music Festival in their hometown come August, with more dates to come.

10 songs to listen for during Diplo’s Belly Up Aspen extravaganzaDiplo 2017

Belly Up Aspen is none of Colorado’s premier winter music festivals, showcasing a diverse range of genres and artists of every caliber. Their calendar was stacked high in 2018 with memorable performances by Keys N Krates, Nora En Pure, Lost Kings, and Cold War Kids taking the same stage as superstars like Marshmello, The Chainsmokers, deadmau5, and Stephen Marley.

To top off a historic year, Belly Up will bring the one and only Diplo to the stage on December 29. From side projects Silk City and LSD, to releasing his first solo EP in four years, Wesley Pentz has had immense success this year, which all the Aspen Mountain skiers can celebrate. Here’s a playlist of ten songs attendees should look out for during the set:

1.Silk City, Dua Lipa feat. Diplo & Mark Ronson – “Electricity”

One of Wesley Pentz Jr.’s greatest moves this year was teaming up with legendary producer Mark Ronson. Silk City instantly popped into the spotlight, bringing in one of 2018’s hottest artists in Dua Lipa for this one. The track was pushed further with an “electric” music video.

2. Ape Drums – “Me Solta”

Miami-based producer Ape Drums is no stranger to dancehall, a genre that Diplo has coined from his Jamaican influence in Major Lazer. Drums is also a friend of the Mad Decent imprint with several features on BBC Radio 1’s Diplo & Friends. Here’s his latest release “Me Solta,” earning a SoundCloud re-post from Diplo himself.

3. LSD feat. Sia, Diplo, Labrinth – “Thunderclouds” (MK Remix)

The famed trio LSD made a lot of noise this year, with four official releases and an innovative, unique sound. “Thunderclouds” marked Diplo, Sia, and Labrinth’s third work of art, receiving a groovy house edit from MK. The Miami-raised producer has a tendency to go deep in his sets, making this remix a prime candidate.

4. Wuki – DADADADA (Holiday VIP) [wukileak]

It’s always easy to throw Wuki in the mix. The New Jersey-born producer already performed a “wukipediamix” for Diplo and Friends and has been heard in a myriad of past Diplo/Skrillex sets (having released tracks on Mad Decent and OWSLA). His wild reworks brought him into the spotlight, most notably his edit of Busta Rhymes’ “Look At Me Now” verse. Although, this one comes with a holiday twist primed for a pre-NYE show.

5. Wuki – Pon De Time [wukileak]

Here’s another gem from Wuki’s endless list of goodies on his WUKILEAKS SoundCloud page. This one stems from one of Diplo’s earliest tracks “Pon De Floor.” Mashed with the fan favorite “One More Time” from Daft Punk, is there even a question of whether or not he’d throw this in?

6. Diplo feat. Lil Pump, Juicy J, Famous Dex, French Montana – “Welcome To The Party”

 

This track serves as a perfect bridge between and hip-hop, featuring rap goliaths like Famous Dex, and fresh-in-the-limelight rapper Lil Pump. This electrifying single is sure to show it not only connects genres, but also jump starts a vibe. “Welcome to the Party,” was featured in Deadpool 2, one of the highest grossing movies of 2018, and Diplo would start off his farewell to 2018 with his imprint on one of the most impactful soundtracks of the year.

7. Calvin Harris feat. Florence Welch – “Sweet Nothing” (Diplo & Grandtheft Remix)

If Diplo is anything, it’s that hard to pin down, transcending expectation and genre. He’s an enigma that’s always working on some new project, but staying true to his nature. He’s also not one to forget the past.  Another classic Diplo remix from 2012, the year Calvin Harris’ “Sweet Nothing” with Florence Welch took hold. Diplo got together with Canadian producer Grandtheft for this one. 

8. Ellie Goulding feat. Diplo & Swae Lee  “Close To Me”

“Close To Me” features some of the industries best and brightest. Swae Lee’s vocals are starting to become familiar to fans across all genres, while Ellie Goulding has been riding with the scene from the start. This track is Diplo’s latest release and has major traction across streaming services sitting pretty at number one on Diplo’s Spotify under popular, with 73 million streams. Definitely keep your ears keen for this one.

9. 4B & Teez – Whistle (Nitti Gritti Remix)

Diplo re-posted this track on his secret SoundCloud account page “diplo approved,” and he’s been known to thread approved tracks into his sets. Additionally, Nitti gritti recently opened for Dillon Francis’ Brooklyn Halloween show and hosts multiple genre and drop changes. Diplo fans will surely recognize and get down to this track.

10. “Get It Right” feat. MØ

“Get It Right” is hot and fresh off the California EP. Diplo played this joint as recently as September 14 at the Brooklyn Mirage for Mad Decent Block Party and even brought out MØ to perform live. It’s flush with style and contemporary waves. One can only hope that Diplo drops it again for this New Years weekend set.

Grandtheft – Square One ft MAX (Vincent Remix)

This post was originally published on this site

Grandtheft wrapped up 2017 with a massive original called “Square One” with vocalist MAX. In the months since, it’s garnered hundreds of thousands of plays and even had a music video released earlier this year. The latest “Square One” news is a rework by Los Angeles producer Vincent.

Vincent’s remix is combative and wild, incorporating grinding synths and full-bodied bass to take the song up a notch.

“Once the original track came out I started playing it in my sets – it has so much character and the sound selection drew me in,” Vincent says of the song. “I wanted to give it a grittier and more aggressive sound while trying to incorporate the elements I loved most. Something harder for everyone that remembers XVII and before my new original music comes out.”
