Diplo has fervently embraced house music of late. Last summer, he played Annie Mac‘s festival, AMP Lost & Found, on the main stage between Jackmaster and Annie herself. He also played Damian Lazarus‘ Get Lost party in Miami during Miami Music Week this year, soon followed by house sets during both weekends of Coachella. To cap it off, last month he released his ‘Higher Ground‘ EP with four original house tracks.
Now the Mad Decent boss delivers a fresh remix package full of heavy hitters to put their original twist on his four-on-floor cuts.
Many of the remixes honor the house-heavy direction of the EP like Riton‘s remix of “Bubble Up” and Solardo‘s remix of “Hold You Tight.” South Africa’s Cueber even put some techno tinges on his own rendition of “Hold You Tight.”
However, there are also remixes on the EP fit the worldly catalog of Mad Decent. Haitian-born Michael Brun puts an upbeat dance-hall groove on “Give Dem,” and Mr. Pauer gives “Bubble Up” a fresh helping of Miami bass.
