Blow Your Head: Diplo Presents Dubstep

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - David Jeffries
Kicking off a series of unmixed compilations where Mad Decent-affiliated DJs explore their favorite genres, Blow Your Head: Diplo Presents Dubstep finds the producer, DJ, and label boss picking some of the brightest and most speaker-ripping tracks from the wobbly genre. The Benga cut and James Blake's remix of Untold come from the genre's darker side, where folks like Burial practice their craft, but it's no surprise that the man behind the Technicolor dancehall crew known as Major Lazer favors the work of Rusko, DZ, and other producers who work electro beats and sci-fi tones into the mix.

Kicking off a series of unmixed compilations where Mad Decent-affiliated DJs explore their favorite genres, Blow Your Head: Diplo Presents Dubstep finds the producer, DJ, and label boss picking some of the brightest and most speaker-ripping tracks from the wobbly genre. The Benga cut and James Blake's remix of Untold come from the genre's darker side, where folks like Burial practice their craft, but it's no surprise that the man behind the Technicolor dancehall crew known as Major Lazer favors the work of Rusko, DZ, and other producers who work electro beats and sci-fi tones into the mix. With plenty of video game bleeps, Zomby's great "Strange Fruit" was a shoe-in for Diplo's set, as it suggests a new, supremely hip and totally meta genre: chipstep. Chances are the throwback beats of Doctor P's "Sweet Shop" appealed to Diplo's love of old-school rave, while Jessica Mauboy's "Burn" comes with a pop melody that's vibrant, just the way the selector prefers. Fans of his live sets will wish this was mixed, but with a Skream mix of Major Lazer, a collaboration with Borgore, plus a freaky Lil Jon team-up you don't want to miss, the Diplo faithful should be well satisfied.
