Diplo premiered this track back in his Halloween-mix a few months ago, and it’s been growing on the fox ever since. Now it’s almost ready for release, as OWSLA is putting out a remix EP the 12th of march, with remixes from DJ Q, Figure and more. We prefer the original tho, and really, it would be no surprise if this will stir quite a bit of noise. The Owl City-esque chorus accompanied by young up and coming Harlem-rapper, Dominic Lord, wrapped in a heavy glitch-hop inspired beat, makes this a hiphop release that quite stands out.
If you don’t already know the label OWSLA, their artists is literally a who’s who of progressive and underground electronic music. Dillon Francis, Skrillex, Kill The Noise, M-Machine, Birdy Nam Nam, Skream, Porter Robinson, Zedd…. The list goes on forever! So the fact that they are releasing this, is a sign of quality alone.
Seeing as this isn’t a free download, we looked a bit into Blood Diamonds. And we found that the Vancouver-based one-man-project just released a pretty damn awesome (and different) remix of Major Lazer’s anthem Get Free.
