As a fidgeting electro kick tap dances across the bottom end, vocalist Priscilla Renea belts out sections of Jade’s 1992 soul smash Don’t Walk Away on Diplo and Sleepy Tom’s collaborative house groove Be Right There.
Vancouver-based Tom has ridden Pusher, his Fool’s Gold-released Anna Lunoe collab, to greater acclaim in 2015. Thus, following up that smash with a release alongside one of EDM-as-pop’s biggest DJ/producers is an obvious next step.
House grooves have been creeping its way into the cool down portions of Diplo’s mainstage festival sets, and will likely be a huge part of what he’s spinning throughout the fall and into the winter. Of his remaining 2015 bookings, most significant to date could be the back-to-back weekends he plays Australia’s Stereosonic Festival in November and December.
