Diplo ft. Action Bronson, RiFF RAFF, Mr MFN eXquire & Nicky Da B - Rock Steady

Posted 2 years ago
Featuring:
Producer:
Diplo
Album:
Revolution EP

Today, Diplo unleashed his latest solo project, the audaciously-titled Revolution EP. Unsurprisingly given the Mad Decent kingpin’s eclectic oeuvre, the set explores a dizzying array of genres, from trap to New Orleans bounce. It concludes with Rock Steady, a joint which isn’t, as you might assume, inspired by the ska offshoot of the same name; rather, it’s an “homage to old-school hip-hop.” Here, Diplo’s off-kilter keyboard loops and boom bap-informed percussion set the stage for guest bars from Action Bronson, RiFF RAFF, Mr. MFN eXquire and Nicky B. While the cast of emcees and quirky instrumental don’t exactly scream “retro,” a vocal-sampled hook helps bolster the cut’s throwback vibe. Like what you’re hearing? Then what are you waiting for—run to your local record store (or navigate to your favorite online retailer) and cop the heavyweight producer’s latest opus.
