There can’t be anybody in the world who doesn’t love a bit of Diplo .
The man also known as Diplodocus brought Baile Funk to the masses, DJed for MIA, and has toyed with pretty much every release worth toying with as one of the best remixers of the new millennium. He’s spanked Black Lips‘ ‘Veni Vedi Veci’ in the spine with a strung-out breakbeat, spruced up Hot Chip‘s ‘Shake A Fist’, and even managed to breathe life into CSS‘s shagging song.
If you’re not familiar with him let us point you here:
The good news is that – finally – someone’s rounded up the best of his remixes, production work and solo stuff, and is putting it out on January 26. It’s called ‘Decent Work For Decent Pay – Selected Works Volume 1’ and is available from Big Dada. Go get it. In the meantime check out his always entertaining blog, and download yourselves the album’s opening track.
