"Must Be a Devil" is a great first song for this quick 4-song EP. At first it doesn't seem like the beats match up just right, and then you realize it's because Diplo has started thinking outside the box. "What's Up What's Up" is just a fun song, and when it's not taken completely seriously it becomes an even better song. He completely tears apart Daft Punk's version of "Work Is Never Over" without disrespecting the original version while managing to sound nothing like it. The "Way More (Remix)" is just as solid as any other song. This EP is less than 4 bucks - the same price as a drink most places when you'd go out, and this works much better on your brain. Why wouldn't you buy it if you even remotely like the samples and the Diplo style?
One of the best and most entertaining electronica/dance musicians out now!
Diplo always brings a fresh variety of sounds and color when approaches a project whether it be for M.I.A, Plastic Little, Spank Rock, or even doing a remix. Yes, pure drum & bass is fine. To a degree. However, Diplo can always blend different genres of music in his electro beats or trip-hop beats.
This is some neat innovative stuff but Diplo is a bit off title wise
Diplo. Like the blocks. Building complex rythms, or simple beats. stacking bizarre sounds. Diplo has some amazing talent. However I would like to see him collaborate with some other artists. I would like to see Diplo (feat. *****) in the artist section. He makes good music but I think he could make some good music with other artists involved. Akin to the whole Mark Ronson scene. Overall Diplo definitely knows how to make quality music. If you don't like electronic music you may not like this, but most of the ignorant masses should as it is basically rap music anyway. This review is however irrelevant since i have not purchased the music and therefore have not listened to the tracks in their entirety. However these tracks are something i would very much consider purchasing and I think that i will. My only Big complaint about this "Diplo" is about the song " Work Is Never Over." I do believe (and correct me if I'm wrong) that the song by Daft Punk is called " Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger," not " Work Is Never Over." Unless he meant to make the song his own by retitling it. Especially since he uses the phrase "Work Is Never Over," in his song far more than the phrase, " Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger," as in the original Daft Punk song he has derived the lyrics from.
