Visual Aid | “About That Life” - Diplo (ft. Jahan Lennon)
I know, I know. What’s going on over there? I was hitting a hot streak getting those mixes out updating daily, but alas, a hard drive failure, and just simply living the hell out of my remaining vacation hours has torn me a sunder. Please excuse my transgressions everyone who peruses this here blogrolly (both of you).
And yes, there’s a trend going on in my selections for these little features, namely anything and all Mad Decent related, and very often with it’s founder Diplo. But name me many other cats who are pushing the walls of genre to their outer limits, and breaking them dams down so that the rivers and juices can pour flowingly into each other like an aural primordial soup dish (I swear I’m not high, just without sleep).
So what we have here is what seems to be dude’s forray into somewhat uncharted territory. The son of a Beatle, Check. Misleading song title (given what similar titles would have you listening to) . Check. Harmonious nostalgic sounding guitars, Indian flourishes, flutes, and other such quirks, Check. I mean son really, I’ve heard of diversity, but this dude goes from making songs like this, and then weeks later the grooviness I just bestowed upon you above.
I’m bout bout it Diplo, keep it moving brotha.
