it’s sunny af outside – let this exclusive diplo mix transport you to cali
Two weeks ago Diplo released his first solo project in five whole years. Out on his own Mad Decent label and Because Music, California is an impressive six-tracker featuring Lil Yachty, Santigold, Desiigner, DRAM, Trippie Redd, Lil Xan, GoldLink and longtime collaborator MØ. To celebrate, the Grammy Award-winning producer and founding member of Major Lazer has made us an exclusive mix full of his favourite summer bangers, as well as his new tracks, naturally.
“The EP is meant to transport you to California, so this mix is a longer vacation!” Diplo told i-D over email. And with music from Missy Elliot, Childish Gambino, Mura Masa, Yo Gotti, Mary J Blige, The Weeknd, M.I.A and Drake for starters, this is accurate. Fun fact: California was recorded in the golden state, while his debut album Florida was… well, you guessed it. Full circle indeed. Thanks for the mental vacation, Diplo!
