Diplo continues to be one of the artists I'm really feeling at the moment. He goes all over the place (look how he almost single-handedly pushed Rio Funk to the US and took M.I.A. all over the world.)
I bought Florida last year, and after an initial "huh! this is just A.N.Other instrumental hip-hop album" it became my favourite album of the year. Particularly the awesome "Summer's Gonna Hurt You".
Now I've just found The Megatroid Mix - a kind of extended fantasy on a theme from DJ Shadow.
It's more fun, tasty (and tasteful) hip-hop, 70s prog-rock sampling and electro styling. And some sly remixing of Florida.
Diplo was also a big influence on the mix I did last year. Megatroid makes me want to go back and finish the sequel I'm working on.
