[PREMIERE] Ricky Remedy Teams Up With Diplo & Tunji Ige On New Hard-Hitting Track “Chosen”

Ricky Remedy Diplo Tunji

It’s been a while since we’ve had the chance to share any new Ricky Remedy on the site, but that’s just changed. The Miami-based producer has been silently working on a new project and today, we have the pleasure of premiering one of his newest tracks, “Chosen” featuring Diplo & Tunji Ige.

For this latest offering, Ricky Remedy has teamed up with Diplo and fellow Philly-based artist Tunji Ige (whose voice you may recognize from GTA & What So Not’s "Feel It"). Starting off fast, “Chosen”, jumps straight into a quick, pumping intro and a snare-driven rise. Tunji Ige’s delivers some skittering verses before the track shoots into a powerful two-part drop filled with energetic percussion, bouncy synths and a booming 808. 

Listen to the new track below and check out Ricky Remedy’s full Reflex EP, out now on Mad Decent. Enjoy!

Viceland Shares Hilarious Trailer For Diplo x James Van Der Beek’s Upcoming Comedy Series “What Would Diplo Do?”

What would diplo do james van der beek

Just over a year ago, Diplo released a hilarious Mad Decent Block Party promo video in which James Van Der Beek played the part of the Philly-hailing producer in a "Day In The Life of Diplo". It was later announced that Viceland picked up the idea and had began working on an entire TV show centered around Van Der Beek as Diplo. Yesterday, Viceland finally shared a trailer for their forthcoming series, "What Would Diplo Do?".

“WWDD” looks like it’s going to be absolutely hilarious. The trailer shows Van Der Beek as Diplo doing ridiculous things like throwing a violin into a blender, being stripped naked by a locked hotel room door and even fighting ninjas with a sword. While the trailer has appearances from Dillon Francis as well as actors Dora Madison, Bobby Lee and others, we can only hope that they’ll stick around for the entirety of the six-part series.

Van Der Beek will be working as actor, writer and producer for “What Would Diplo Do”, Viceland’s first scripted series to date. The mockumentary style series will premiere on August 3rd on Viceland. Check out the full trailer below and enjoy!

Diplo Drops Catchy Collab With Rising Rapper XXXTENTACION "looking for a star (CANT GET YOU OUT MY HEAD)"

Diplo XXX

Rising Florida rapper XXXTENTACION has teamed up with Diplo to release the new single "Looking for a Star," and the unexpected collaboration shows a completely new side of the 19 year-old MC. 

XXXTENTACION rose to fame with his wild single "Look at Me," which has now racked up over 100 million views on streaming services. For his latest song, he taps Diplo to provide a minimal, tropical beat that brings the melodic vocals to the forefront and does away with XXX's signature distorted yelling. Instead of rapping, he opts for singing radio-friendly lyrics that could be mistaken for one of the collaborations on Jack U's album. If there was any question around Diplo being able to turn anyone into a star, this new track truly shows the talent he has in creating pop music. 
This isn't the only unexpected collaboration we received this week from XXXTENTACION; he also worked with internet rappers Rich Chigga and Keith Ape to release the incredibly hype song "Gospel." XXXTENTACION has two albums planned for this year, and we can't wait to see which style he goes with for them. Enjoy!
