Ever since his chart-smashing teamup with Tiesto for C’mon, Diplo’s been on a cross-genre shopping spree. Originally an electro house stalwart, the American DJ and his Mad Decent label have all but abandoned their former roots, instead opting to produce some of the most rule-bending and progressive sounds on the dance market today.
This time, he’s partnered up with Rottun Records death machine Datsik for a dubstep-meets-electro chimera of epic proportions. Pick Your Poison shows that neither of these DJs are far behind the cutting edge when it comes to that cross-genre pollination we crave. Taking the cue from Tiesto (as well as vocalist Kay), Diplo made sure the song built up right with a housey structure and trance-like shimmers. It was then up to Datsik to ensure maximum post-drop intensity with some wobbly complectro destruction–all lit up by Kay’s carefree vocals. Watch out for this smoking ace on the dancefloor.
