Mix | Gryffin Builds A Legacy With Flight Log 004: Diplo & Friends Mix

Posted by on October 7, 2016

This year’s biggest breakout artist, Gryffin, is currently breaking the mold in the music-sphere by magnifying the use of live instrumentation in his performances, alongside a string of releases that continue to redefine the melodic house domain. The Los Angeles-based artist is not only responsible for one of the biggest singles of the year, “Heading Home,” but he’s been able to strengthen his legacy time and time again with every release. Now, after boosting his reputation with his widely-received sophomore single, “Whole Heart” ft. Bipolar Sunshine, Gryffin is now preparing for an eponymous fall tour, sided by a brand new Flight Log 004 that features his recent Diplo & Friends guest mix.

This recent Flight Log once again sets a high bar in Gryffin’s musical treasury, leading into the mix with a ceaseless spread of up-and-coming house artists before taking us into a layout of future bass features.

Oliver Heldens is a man on a mission, and nothing is going to slow him down. With his latest single, “Last All Night (Koala),” still dominating the radio airwaves even months after the release, Heldens is back with a guest mix for Diplo & Friends on BBC Radio 1. The hour-long guest mix is a thing of beauty, as the talented Dutch youngster artfully guides the mix through a selection of his favorite groove-driven house jams, as well as a number of his fan-favorite originals. Heldens not only delivers a great mix, but he also slips in two IDs, which we can’t wait to get our hands on, so make sure to keep an ear out for those while you’re listening through the mix.

Don’t sleep on the “Last All Night (Koala)” and the remix pack if you haven’t already checked it out. Stream on Spotify below or purchase it on iTunes!

There is something to be respected about artists that can’t be categorized into a specific genre and Paper Diamond is definitely one of those cats. The genre spanning producer out of Boulder, Colorado is in the midsts of headlining his Cold Crush Tour. If your not able to catch him on the road and you happen to be in Vegas after March 26th you can catch him at club Surrender.

A few days back Hypetrak premiered Paper Diamonds latest offering. “Black Rose” is light, easy-going tune that rides the cusp between a Hip Hop instrumental and a downtempo electronic jawn. After downloading this freebie check out the Diplo & Friends mix that recently dropped for free on Paper Diamond’s Soundcloud. Be sure to check him out on his Cold Crush tour with some very special guests at any one of the dates after the jump.


Trap | Benzi – Girl Trapz (Volume Four)

Posted by on November 26, 2013

Benzi is baaaack with another one of his signature, highly acclaimed Girl Trapz mixtapes. This Girl Trapz is special not just because its tracklist is a stolid 10 or that it makes girls (and boys!) want to take their clothes off BUT because almost all of the featured songs were produced exclusively for this set. That includes contributions from the Girl Trapz remix contest Benzi held leading up to the release. So I raise my glass to you Benzi, not a single song disappoints. Snatch this free download and let it take you away on an hour-long euphoric, ass-shaking journey.

Electronic, Mix, Trap | Cashmere Cat for Diplo & Friends BBCR1

Posted by on May 11, 2013


Cashmere Cat, for reasons other than being a fellow cat lover, is one of my absolute favorites right meow. I’ve been a fan of everything he’s been putting out so I was even more stoked when I got to indulge in an entire hour of his sweet sounds on this episode of Diplo & Friends radio. He does an astounding job of bouncing (literally, check the mattress squeaking motif) from hip hop to hot beats to trap and experimental noises and manages to keep the listener engaged throughout. Some highlights include his own personal tracks, Mirror Maru (2:55) and Kiss Kiss (18:20), throwbacks like the Men in Black theme (34:40), and a witty surprise in the middle of Justin Timberlake’s Señorita (9:50).

You can download this mixtape fo free, in addition to a selection of his bumpin remixes off his Soundcloud. Really though, you’ve gotta be kitten me if you don’t =^.^=
