Diplo’s California Is Rap Heavy
Diplo has released his first solo EP, California. The six track release is his first solo project in five years.
Multi-talented Diplo recently released his first solo EP in five years. Titled California, the EP is a long awaited follow-up to his 2013 release Revolution.
The EP boasts six tracks, one of which is a remix of Get It Right, which was released in January.
In an interview with Annie Mac for BBC Radio 1, Diplo revealed that California is based on a collection of tracks he had been working on from the confines of his home base in the Hollywood Hills. The feature heavy EP showcases the likes of DRAM, Desiigner, Lil Yachty, Santigold, Trippie Redd, Lil Xan, MØ and a remix by Grammy nominated rapper Goldlink.
Diplo perfectly balances rap and dance music and has shown a vast change in music style since his last solo release. A stand out track from this EP is the highly teased collaboration with Lil Yachty and Santigold titled Worry No More.
A first listen of California displayed the Philadelphia native’s skill of marrying rap and dance music, all while making the sound his own and pushing the featured artists’ signature music style.
Summer might be long gone, but Diplo’s California EP has the perfect soundtrack for cracking a couple of cans while enjoying the last few days of warm weather.
