Diplo reveals upcoming John Mayer collaborationDiplo Dame Dash

Diplo and John Mayer are reportedly working on new music together. At first thought it might seem like an oil and water combination, but the more one repeats it in their head, the more sense it actually starts to make. It’s one of the world’s foremost pop producers and EDM’s designated stepdad matched with one of the most prolific musicians of a generation, who both seem to have a genuine knack for not taking themselves too seriously while also dominating their respective crafts.

The “Close To Me” producer revealed the upcoming collaboration in quintessential Diplo fashion, remarking on the collaboration with a photo posted to Instagram… not a photo of him and Mayer — but it still gets the message across. There aren’t any concrete details yet on when John Mayer and the Mad Decent head honcho are set to debut their impending new music, or how much of it exists. Between his work with Major Lazer, Silk City, LSD and the former Jack Ü, perhaps a joint effort with Mayer could even turn out to be Diplo’s next super group. Who knows?

Elephante talks about his vocal debut, releases full remix package for ‘The In Between’ElephanteStudioShootSamples 0006 RT

Elephante has officially kicked off his Glass Mansion Estate Tour after the long-awaited release of his full Glass Mansion EP. While “The In Between” featuring vocals by Anjulie has been the hit single of the compilation, fans also got to see a new side of the producer with title track “Glass Mansion,” where he sings the vocals on the release. The LA-based producer is just a few stops into the tour, and in addition to dropping the full remix package for “The In Between,” he has decided to show fans another dimension to his performance abilities. At Irving Plaza in New York City, he sang in front of a sold out crowd, showcasing his versatility as a performer. View a video of it here.

The producer spoke with Dancing Astronaut on his music career and how he has evolved into a performing vocalist, saying “I started my music career as a singer-songwriter, so I’ve always wanted to sing on my tracks, but I only wanted to do it if my voice fit perfectly for the song, and not just sing for the sake of it. ‘Glass Mansion’ was when the stars finally aligned. It’s such a personal song, and it pulled together all of the threads of my EP, so I knew it was the one.” He continues, “Singing it live was always a dream. It knew it could be a really special moment to cap off the Estate show, just like it does on the EP. Plus, it gets me one step closer to becoming John Mayer, who really is the only reason to do anything, isn’t it?”

In addition to singing live, fans can also see ZAXX as an opener during some of his tour stops. The up-and-comer put out an official remix of “The In Between,” adding additional synth layers framing Anjulie’s vocals. The euphoric chords are an interesting addition, and certainly will play well in his opening sets. Codeko‘s previously released rendition of the track and Elephante’s own revamped take on the release round out the remix package.

Fans can see if Elephante will be performing in a city nearby here.
