“I met Octavian at a party in London. In a dark warehouse under an over pass . Some friend said hey man meet this young artists he is going to be really big. I said “ok” took a photo and then thought ok I’ll never see this kid again.. but in fact over the next 6 months I kept hearing his name and seeing him on great songs and I tried to stay in touch even tho he had another 12 phone numbers since we met. Finally he was stuck in LA for a while where he wasn’t as known as London and it was easy to pull up on him, he couldn’t escape. After a few weeks we nailed this song and I’m glad it got to finally see the light of day. Big up to Jim-E Stack for producing this with me.?” – Diplo
Diplo unleashes booming new single “Boom Bye Bye” that features French rapper Niska. The track is the first taste from Diplos forthcoming EP, “Europa” which slated for release later this year via Mad Decent/Because Music. “Europa” will feature collaborations with artists from across the European continent.
“Niska came over late one night in Paris and we played this idea down on a piano loop that I made.. I had only been familiar with him because he had every song on the french charts that moment. I was really excited that he came thru and made this crazy idea with me..one year later we finished it”
If you haven’t spent the last few years jet-setting to the hottest megaclubs and exclusive star-studded soirées across the globe, chances are you may not have heard of DJ Politik. His latest rework of Poppy and Diplo’s retrofuturistic “Time Is Up” is a high-energy, midtempo, moombah inspired dancefloor pleaser, with hints of brass & trap percussion that seem to crossover into all of his productions.
