Diplo somehow found time to bust this party-friendly six-pack while working on publishing a book, producing Usher’s chart-topping “Climax,” and mixing a Major Lazer single. And even while he’s got a grip of guest vocalists sharing the mic, there’s no mistaking that Diplo is the host of his Express Yourself festivities. New Orleans MC Nicky Da B leads off the opening title track with some of his signature ping-pong bounce. It nearly upstages Diplo’s handclap-heavy mix, where rapid-fire beats blast under bubbly analog chirps. Datsik & Sabi put sass into “Barely Standing,” a deep dubstep cut percolating with what sounds like vintage Atari videogame samples and a vision-blurring bass. Flinch & My Name Is Kay toughen up “No Problem,” a fluttering jam with laser-blast effects going off under intimidating vocals and a Miami-flavored foundation. Diplo employs tons of organic-sounding percussion throughout “Move Around,” nearly burying Elephant Man’s toasting in this hyper dancehall standout. “Set It Off (feat. Lazerdisk Party Sex)” closes with pitched-up vocals squeaking over Peter Gabriel samples and early-‘90s house beats.
An Instant Classic
Everything on this EP is a masterpiece. I highly recommend 4. Move Around, it has to be the most innovative and fresh song. Nevertheless though, Diplo knows how to drop incredible beats. I've been wanting this EP since it was first announced many months ago. So glad that it's finally out for everyone to hear :-)
