STREAM: Diplo - Set It Off (feat. Lazerdisk Party Sex)

Diplo’s new one is a serious departure from the norm; we’re talking mandolins, folksy singing, a children’s chorus extolling the virtues of being chaste. Nah, we’re just playing. As if! Luckily he’s still flexing that tweaky kazoo riddim muscle we’ve come to expect. I mean, the single is called “Set It Off” and features Lazerdisk Party Sex. Did you think it would be anything other than a booty clapper? Jokes aside, the truth is there is a difference between the new Diplo and the Diplo of old. He’s started to lay down melancholic Phil Collins-like builds before he lights the match. Still burns the club down; just with a soft massage before the bonkers FX ignite. Pre-order that new EP right here, kids.
