Diplo vs Santogold


The new Diplo mixtape is out. It's kind of a follow up to the MIA mix from a few years back but this time it's with Philadelphia's Santogold. The sound has migrated somewhat from the more bombastic Piracy Funds Terrorism to something altogether more smokey. Funk, dub reggae and 80s Hip Hop breaks crossed with contemporary rap vocals and lo-fi electro mixed with a soundsystem sensibility, all tailored around beats and vocals from Santogold's debut album. A thoroughly good mix - peep the self-effacing skit from Mark Ronson.
