Don Diablo & Steve Aoki x Lush & Simon – What We Started (Don Diablo’s VIP Mix)

Regarded by many as one of the biggest anthems of summer 2016, ‘What We Started‘ has been a fan favourite since it’s release earlier this year. Today marks the release of Don Diablo’s VIP mix, an energy fueled drum & bass masterpiece, premiered on the latest episode of Hexagon Radio.

Although he is best-known for being the king of future house, Don Diablo has always challenged genres, pushing boundaries to create inspiring tracks regardless of the genre they fall into. This year especially, the Dutch producer seems to have been increasingly influenced by drum & bass, which has featured in many of his sets, including his performance at Ultra Music Festival in Miami, in which he dropped the Sigma remix of ‘We Can Have It All‘.

This impressive VIP mix gives the track a new burst of energy, beginning with the recognizable vocals from BullySongs as it begins to build towards its peak. Fueled with the classic characteristics of a stellar Don Diablo hit, the melodic piano chords uplift the listener as the pace of the track increases. The explosive drum & bass drop is both lighthearted and powerful, with the thudding rhythm ensuring that this VIP mix will create a massive crowd reaction whenever it is dropped.

The change of pace in the VIP mix serves as a reminder of Don Diablo’s experimentalism in music production, consistently pushing the limits within genres, staying ahead of the curve by always providing fresh and inspiring music. The VIP mix of ‘What We Started’ is out today, listen to it on Spotify below.
