The record label spearheaded by Thomas Wesley Pentz a.k.a Diplo has been taking massive strides in the last year or so. Having put out tracks for big names like Major Lazer, Baauer, Rusko, Dillon Francis, RiFF RAFF, Zed’s Dead, TJR and newly formed Jack U – to name but a few! – the folks at Mad Decent will have been kept very busy.
Mad Decent state their aim is “to bring new genres and cultures to light in the ever diversifying music community”. And here at We Rave You we are fully supportive.
Whether you recognise the name or not, you will have most likely heard one of the many remixes that Bad Royale have been churning out as of late, targeting tracks by Deadmau5 through to Azealia Banks.
The trap / dubstep quartet have been on the dance music scene for a number of years releasing tracks on a variety of labels including Spinnin’ and Ultra. Diplo has decided to take the CA based producers under his wing with the release of their new EP – Move Like.
The EP consists of 5 tracks – Move Like, POP, Alarm, One Puff, Superman and features vocals from Richie Loop, Dominique Young Unique, Bunji Garlin and Marq Pierre. The tracks are very reminiscent of the classic dance hall sounds of Major Lazer, which is hardly surprising, but provide a fresh take and manage to create their own vibe. The resulting effect is very pleasing indeed. Our personal favourite is ‘Superman’.
Expect to see a lot more of these 4 in the near future. Move Like EP is free to download now.
