In my perfect world "diplomacy" would have nothing to do with negotiations about important international affairs. "Diplomats" would have nothing to do with negotiating peace treaties or whatever. In my perfect world, "diplomats" would be followers of the new religion "Diplomacy" and we would all worship Diplo. Enough with the absurd veneration and downright silliness and let's get on with the show.

DJ Kazu - Sushi Chop (Prod. by Diplo)
Who else than Diplo to bring some Japanese Bounce into the average person's music world. Warning: Please be careful, this shit is hot to be, hot to be hot, to be hot, to be hot, to be hot to be, hot to be.

Diplo - Smash a Kangaroo
Anothern of Diplo's weird, with F up lyrics and less heard of songs. Seriously, no idea how someone gets the idea to kill a kangaroo and take a pill. No kangaroos were harmed during the production of this song.

Diplo & Borgore - Sunsets
You think everything is fine, everything is ok... then mindfuck. Your mind is pounded so hard you begin silently praying to yourself. It stops for a second, a single ray of sunlight shines through the grimy window behind you. You let out a sigh, but it's back for more. In the end, this event will slowly drift away. A repressed memory which will resurface in your adulthood. Gotta love dubstep.

Major Lazer Ft. Ninjasonik - Pon de Floor (Diplo Rap Remix)
The first post on the blog was about Ninjasonik, so let's bring him back. I think everyone has heard of Major Lazer in 2009. Diplo & Switch make one incredible team, Diplo on the remix adding, New York based rapper, Ninjasonik's lyrics to the song.

Sia - Clap Your Hands (Diplo Remix)

Since you can't use cowbells in every song, why not try adding a clap? A hard bassline, some wobble, more clap in the vocals and voilĂ ! You got yourself some heat for the street.

Jackie Chain Ft. Jhi Ali - Rollin' (Diplo Remix)
Ode to those multicolored "skittles" on one incredibly fresh beat.

Hollertronix - Golddigger (Diplo Remix)
Diplo does hella B-More beats. What can't this guy do...

Gucci Mane Ft. Lil B - Break Yourself (Diplo Remix)
Off Diplo's Free Gucci Mixtape. The whole thing is tight, I recommend you go grab it if you haven't yet.

Do we promote diversity? Fuck yes man. Ain't it just great for me to be able to do just that with a single artist? Fuck yes.

One last thing, go check out Mad Decent! You'll find plenty of dopeness such as vuvuzela electro.

Vuvuzela Beat by Ghostdad


on point.

Some random summer vibes.

Three 6 Mafia/ DJ Unk / Sebastien Tellier - I'd Rather (Arthur King Remix)
1st one remixed by Arthur King which I had the pleasure of seeing live. He was performing a set right before DJ Klever. So you know that guy needs to be on point to be before mighty mister Klever(he won DMC USA 2 times in a row). Anyway this track is a chill vibe, the Sebastien Tellier beat fits right in with DJ Unk and Three 6 Mafia's vocals. You'll be singing "I'd rather get some head" all night looooong.

Major Lazer ft. Nina Sky & Ricky Blaze - Keep It Goin' Louder (So Shifty 1961 SKA Remix)
Major Lazer have been coming out with some of the craziest dance anthems of the past year. This remix by SoShifty switches it up reggae/ska style. I find its a good backyard party song. I've been rocking this one a lot lately for some reason so here yaaa go.

BONUS : good beat from last year's summer
Major Lazer ft. Prince Zimboo & M.I.A - Baby (Switch Remix)

And if you havn't seen M.I.A's Born Free video yet well go for it. Mind blowing. It was done by the same guy who directed Justice - Stress video.


You can't go wrong with this

Today will be a little different. There will still be a few mp3s, but I'm focusing on great mixes. To start this off, I just got to mention The Rub. Started by DJ Ayres in Brooklyn's Southpaw back in 02, it began as a night of hip hop. DJ Eleven was a guest for the first night of The Rub. Cosmo Baker joined in the partying shortly after and the three of them have been doing their thing ever since. However, doing shows isn't everything, they constantly put out new material for their fans and when they dropped the first edition of It's the Motherfucking Remix Vol. 1, it put The Rub at a worldwide level. The latest volume was released a few days before the start of 2010. Grab the mix on their site for free and a few of my favorite tracks below, enjoy!

It's the Motherfucking Remix Vol. 3

B. Hamp vs Puff Daddy – Do The Ricky Bobby (DJ Protege remix)

Kanye West – Champion (Nick Catchdubs remix)

ODB vs Rhythm Heritage – Got Your Money (DJ Eleven remix)

Pase Rock vs Axwell – Get Money (Emynd remix)

C&C Music Factory – A Deeper Love (Morsy remix)

Jonny Blaze – Let’s Rock This Joint

The Specials – Ghost Town (Sake One remix)

You can show some love by buying a hard copy CD in The Rub Store

While on subject, DJ Ayres suggested that I mention another project they've been working on called the Hip-Hop History Mix. All I can say is that they ain't fucking around, Vol. 1 of this series goes all the way back to 1979 and Hip-Hop History 2002 Mix came out a few days ago!

In the recent past, I talked about John Roman, that incredibly talented Canadian DJ. Once again that's JOHN ROMAN, remember his name in 2010. Well in the past week he has finally released his Reclusion Mix and as expected it's banging! I can't wait till Sing is released, such a good song. In more recent news, I want all these songs.

RECLUSION by John Roman

Good listening
