Catching up on my Mad Decent readings, gems were to be had as always.
First off, Diplo hooked up with the object every rappers jocking- M.I.A. and Switch to step in for one of Gilles Peterson’s shows on BBC1. Check the tracklisting and grab it now here.
Also you may recall seeing MSTRKFT’s remix of John Legend’s Greenlight. Diplo got his hands on the track and takes it to another level.
Also check Mad Decent’s rework of an Of Montreal track, who I’m not really a big fan of, unlike this track.
Some other stuff of note,
This Smalltown Djs mix done for Discobelle (click for track by track breakdown), is absolutley nuts. I just listened it today and I’m already on my 3rd loop.
D.O.E. (formerly known as John Doe) who was on a few cuts on Timbo’s last album and is signed to the Mosley Music Group put out a mixtape with an unnecessarily long title, Timbaland Presents: The Fall of John Doe-1. The Rise of D.O.E . This is supposedly leading up to D.O.E.’s debut album. I’ve yet to listen, but you don’t have to wait for me. Get it at his website.
