Tinie Tempah, the artist who’s lyrics were featured on SHM’s “Miami to Ibiza” is back with his latest single “Trampoline” after three years without new material. The UK rapper teamed up with hip-hop superstar 2 Chainz, and renown electronic music producer Diplo, to put together this banging single coming off his album. The track clearly accentuates the production techniques of the music savvy Diplo, who seems to be collaborating with just about everyone these days. With the recent rise in popularity of house-based rap music, it comes as no surprise that previously successful rappers who were once utilized for their talents are venturing into the industry independently. There will surely be more where this came from, so stay tuned.

Major Lazer – Get Free (Various Remixes)

I know this is long overdue but “Get Free” from the (ex) duo made up of Diplo and Switch is truly a masterpiece. It just goes to show how diverse Diplo is as he goes progressive with unreal vocals from Amber, rather than his usual moombahouse. Included is a remix from WhatSoNot who add a crazy hard drop, and a vocal version of the remix by Trotta, a new and upcoming rapper who just happens to be my younger brother. Also added is a more up tempo remix from Andy C. Let me know which you like the best, ENJOY!!

Sleigh Bells – Demons (Diplo Remix) [RELEASE]

Diplo’s creativity takes this remix to Sleigh Bell’s single “Demons” and turns it into an instant rager. I have always been a big fan of Diplo’s work and this new banger takes it to a new level. With added synths and a killer bassline you better bet he killed the original. Also be sure to tune into the second drop of this remix if your into trippy trippy drops. Let me know what you think and ENJOY!!
