Diplo is a man many different productions. Whenever he releases a new track, we genuinely have no idea which genre it might fall under. It can literally be anything from deep house to hard bass. It is just one the many reasons Diplo is one the most successful electronic music artists all time. He is also a Philadelphia Eagles fans so that also makes him absolutely the man.
In his latest work with DRAM, Diplo took an approach that even surprised us. ‘Look Back’ is a pensive, melancholy ridden and deliberate hip hop ballad. The crashing cymbals and slow purposeful beat create an air interest around DRAM’s verse. This song is not what we expected from this collaboration but honestly it is better than we could have hoped. While this one won’t be played out at main stages this festival season, it is a stark reminder that Diplo knows exactly what he is doing, and does it better than almost anyone.
