This Week in Diplo: The week that kept on giving

Diplo

The official video for Skrillex’s “Dirty Vibe” with Diplo, CL, and G-Dragon dropped this week, and while I can’t be sure if G-Dragon and CL (Skrillex and Diplo are cameo-less) are doing impressions of late ’90s and early 2000s American rap videos or if this is meant to be taken seriously, it’s pretty fun.

And to continue the holiday-release-giving: Diplo gave EW three blistering playlists on Spotify. The first is hip-hop. It kicks off with Rae Sremmurd and blows through tracks by Migos, ILoveMakkonen, Kanye, 2 Chainz, Chris Brown, Frank Ocean, and so many more.

The second is future house-based. Duke Dumont, Oliver Heldens, Route 94, AlunaGeorge, and more make up two and a half hours of fun.

And the third—proving Diplo either really does exist in a genre-less state of taste or he’s very generous during the holidays—is psychedelic rock. The Mops, The Seeds, The Bees, The Telescopes, The Yardbirds (are we sensing a pattern here?) are all there.

And because why do one when you can do seven, Jack Ü has previewed seven official remixes for “Take Ü There” this week. The package was partially leaked a month ago, with the Felix Cartal, TJR, and Vindata remixes releasing earlier than intended. The rest of the collection is rounded out by Tchami, Tujamo, Netsky, and (drumroll, please) Zeds Dead.

Check out the rest on their Soundcloud.

Aside from that, it’s been a lot of travel (Jamaica, India) and promotion for Jack Ü’s biggest show ever: Headlining NYE at Madison Square Garden in New York City. (Get tickets here.)
