It’s officially the Christmas season–time to light your tree, sip egg nog, and get down to some dirty bass and dancehall jams. That’s right, thanks to Mad Decent’s new Xmas compilation, A Very Decent Christmas, the holidays have never been twerkier.
Diplo and friends did a number on several yuletide classics in this comp, which features six merry remixes and two original songs from some of the label’s biggest talent. Trap masters Gent & Jawns bring out the heavy synths in Turn Up Ye Merry Gentlemen, Juyen Sebulba offers some jolly house beats in SuperJam (Deck the Halls), and mitch murder meets us under the mistletoe with his R&B slow jam, Don’t Let Me Spend Christmas Alone.
The collection’s other original track comes from Vjuan Allure, who pays homage to the reindeer moombahton style (haven’t you heard of it?) in RUDE-OFF 2013. Astonomar and Kennedy Jones offer remixes, and DJ Snake gets a little help from the dark techno duo Alesia in their whistling Jingle Bells spin on Bird Machine, a free download. Even Diplo’s in the spirit, bringing some cheer to his recent hit in Frosty Bounce with some “Ho Ho Ho” from Santa himself.
