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.

Goshfather remixes Kanye West and Lil Pump’s ‘I Love It’ into raunchy disco

No song is safe these days from a Goshfather flip. The producer’s infectious retro disco stylings have spiced up tracks from artists ranging from JAUZ to Skrillex. The remixes follow the same cheeky dance-first ethos as his originals on labels like Spinnin’ and Hysteria. Now, Goshfather is follows his “Nice For What” remix up with another full makeover, this time taking on Kanye West and Lil Pump‘s internet-burning track “I Love It.”

The original track’s highly NSFW verses were built around the instrumental’s undeniably groovy bassline, and Goshfather’s take most definitely follows suit — but that’s about the similarities end. The remix is a sped-up disco romp that drops the track’s slow and slinky feel into a ’70s bowling alley. Slap bass is joined by wailing saxophone and an uptempo four-to-the-floor beat, and the effect is almost enough to distract from the rappers’ raunchy lyrics still tucked into the rework. Goshfather’s take proves any track can go disco if he puts his mind to it.

Juicy J, Lil Pump, and Famous Dex release take two of Diplo’s ‘Welcome To The Party’

Diplo had speakers blazing in May when he released what would come to be known as Deadpool 2’s unofficial theme song — “Welcome To The Party.” The original track, included in the motion picture’s soundtrack, featured the rap stylings of French Montana and Lil Pump, as well as some background harmonizing from teenage vocalist, Zhavia, known from her appearance on The Four.

A few weeks later, Diplo has followed up on the gargantuan release with a remix from the likes of hip-hop heavy hitter, Juicy J, Famous Dex, and original contributor circling back for another go, Lil Pump. Reviving the same larger-than-life trap beat, the remix uses the three new verses to bring a similarly irreverent and rowdy fervor to the track, extending “Welcome To The Party’s” shelf-life well into the summer months.

As if getting a whole remix package for Diplo‘s California EP wasn’t enough to win over fans, he now decides to put the cherry on top by dropping yet another remix from Valentino Khan for his track, “Welcome to the Party.”

The original, which was featured on the Deadpool 2 soundtrack, featured trap horns and aggressive percussion that sat ever-so-perfectly behind the toplines by French Montana and Lil Pump. Valentino then adds a whole new personality to it as he incorporates intense saw bass and a punchy snare, along with unique sounds in the drop to take an already energetic song and turn it into a heater.

Crankdat spins some fresh IDs in new Diplo and Friends mix

Christian Smith, a.k.a. Crankdat became a breakout star through remixes for Zeds Dead, Jaden Smith, San Holo, and more. In addition, he’s added some equally successful originals to the portfolio, with his most recent being “Need Somebody.” Now, it seems this positive traction has caught Diplo‘s attention, as the rising producer has officially made his debut on BBC Radio 1’s Diplo & Friends.

Fans are in for a big treat here, as the bass-heavy mix features a wide array of fresh IDs from the Cleveland born DJ. He also blends famed remixes with throwbacks, hip-hop — including tracks by Kanye West and Lil Pump — and dance music anthems such as Galantis‘ “Runaway” and Calvin Harris‘ “Summer” (mashed up with some trap-y goodness). The hour long mix is ever-changing and will make listeners wonder where the time went.

Crankdat is currently on his “Outcast” tour, hitting stops all over the globe leading up to an Electric Zoo 2018 performance come Labor Day Weekend.

Deadpool 2 gets a taste of Diplo with new track, ‘Welcome To The Party’

This post was originally published on this site

 

Diplo has enlisted a lengthy convoy of rap and vocal talent, including French Montana, Lil Pump, and Zhavia Ward, for his latest track, “Welcome To The Party,” that is set to be featured on the official motion picture soundtrack for the heavily anticipated Deadpool 2, out May 18.

It’s not terribly difficult to envision the absurdly comical, fourth-wall-breaking Deadpool plunging into a fight scene to the sound of the track’s epochal bass and forthright trap beat. While both French Montana and Lil Pump are each assigned their own verses, Zhavia, a former contestant on Fox‘s talent competition, The Four, delivers a short, but high-energy hook.

In Diplo’s lyric Youtube video, a lone, animated, and flower-crowned Deadpool is seen doing a number of popular internet dances, including the shoot dance and the floss dance.

Luca Lush steps up with an inventive remix of Lil Pump’s “Molly”

This post was originally published on this site

Luca Lush has been a Soundcloud staple since the explosion of the future trap sub-genre on the platform around 2014, providing a flurry of originals, remixes, bootlegs, and more, all saturated in his signature style. This year alone, he’s taken on Skrillex, What So Not, and M83. Now, for his latest “lift,” the deft remixer has dropped off his take on up-and-coming Florida trap star Lil Pump’s track “Molly.”

Lush tackles the rapper’s harsh, bass-boosted track with his distinct percussion arrangements and explosive synths. Exaggerating Lil Pump’s happy chord progression, the mood of the song swings from lean-infused southern-inspired rap to euphoric, blissful melodic trap. Proffering another taste of his eccentric creativity, Luca Lush once again bridges the gap between electronic dance music and hip-hop with another inventive remix to add to his booming repertoire.
