Diplo Shares Heavy Hourlong Set From Burning Man 2017

diplo burning man 2017

The week following Burning Man is always full of new mixes, with artists consistently uploading their sets from the festival to SoundCloud and other streaming services each year. This weekend chillwave artist Tycho shared his soothing sunrise set from the gathering and, more recently, Diplo has gifted us with a performance from the opposite side of the spectrum: his intense, bass-heavy set from Burning Man’s fifth day at Camp Questionmark.

Diplo is a master at mixing hip-hop, rap and other genres with lively production, a dynamic signature that always brings something fresh to Burning Man. 2017 was no different, with the producer packing this hourlong set to the brim with powerful music. The hip-hop influence is notable with classic releases from artists like A$AP Ferg, Wiz Khalifa, Big Sean and Kendrick Lamar mixed in, but Diplo goes deep as well, tying in tracks like Rick Ross and Skrillex’s “Purple Lamborghini,” What So Not’s heavy “Innerbloom” remix, various releases from the Skrillex and Diplo Present Jack U album/EP and much more. Find the full set below – enjoy!

Gucci Mane & The Weeknd Collaborate On New Single "Curve"

Gucci The Weeknd

Gucci Mane does not stop. He’s already dropped a plethora of project since his release from prison and keeps the new music coming with a new collaboration with The Weeknd titled “Curve” ahead of a new album Mr. Davis due this Friday. 

The full tracklist for the project is stacked, bringing contributions from A$AP Rocky, ScHoolboy Q, Big Sean, Rae Sremmurd’s Slim Jxmmi and more. On this new track Gucci and Abel prove to be a great combo atop the eerie beat with trap drum patterns. The Weeknd delivers some bars in addition to his hook and it’s sounding great. Enjoy!

Jamie xx Delivers New Remix Of The xx's "On Hold"

Jaime xx On hold remix

The xx's sparse, intimate music provides the perfect framework for artists to remix them, and there have been many great ones from their three albums. The latest remix comes from the band's own producer Jamie xx, putting a new spin on their first single from 2017's I See You.

Jamie xx's remix of "On Hold" immediately sounds unrecognizable from the original, replacing the opening verse with a slow-building house beat. The Hall & Oates-sampled chorus is now broken up and weaved into the beat, alongside a kick & snare that keep the tempo throughout the song. Around two minutes in, the song brings loud, arpeggiated synths to the forefront and continues to build on that for the duration of the six-minute track.

Jamie xx's restrained, minimalist work with The xx is incredibly impressive, but his talent really shines on his solo work where he is not bound by any restrictions. Enjoy!
