Diplo – Revolution EP : Huge 6 song release now available for download and stream [Trap / Hip-Hop / Electro]Posted in Bangin, Mixtapes / Albums by nick | Tags: Album Stream, Diplo, Electro, Electro House, Ep, Hip-Hop, Mad Decent, Rap, Trap Music
One of the biggest tastemakers in the electronic world Diplo drop’s his latest project, his Revolution EP now available via his label Mad Decent. The 6 song release continues to bridge his raw underground electronic roots with mainstream ready spin.
Starting off with ‘Biggie Bounce’ we get a radio friendly banger largely in part to guest rapper Travis Porter yet packs an underground punch thanks to guest co-producer the Indonesian Angger Dimas. ‘Revolution’ featuring Imanos and Faustix is another track aimed towards that has been getting play over the past few months. We saw one of my favorite tracks ‘Crown’ featuring Mike Posner and Riff Raff surface a few months back and still holds true to be one of my favorite tracks from the release. ‘Rock Steady’ is an incredible rap track filled with some raw verses from Action Bronson, Riff Raff Mr. MFN eXquire and even featuring Nicky Da B who you maye recognize from ‘Express Yourself’. Helping close out the 4 original songs are 2 remixes, the first being an unbelievable remix to ‘Revolution’ from Boaz van de Beat, that really isn’t one to miss. Then we end with the TWRK remix to ‘Biggie Bounce’, which is a beefed up version of the original.
You can stream the EP below, and we would strongly recommend grabbing a copy via iTunes from Mad Decent.
