So, clearly, Diplo has had in hands in everything lately. Aside from producing obscure as well as mainstream artists’ albums and beats, he’s also been releasing his own fun grooves, and “Set it Off,” is a good example.
It’s a new one, and it’s a straight-up fun moombah track. The video is interesting, too. Aside from keeping with the time-honored music video tradition of showing as much human flesh as possible in under 4 minutes, its also rather tripped out and bizarre to think of a pole extending into space. Yes, it’s sexual, but it’s also fairly clever and simple, I would say… And simple is not a bad word; in fact, anytime you can mix sexuality with a simple-yet-clever idea (and then mix it with modern-edged electronic music) you’ve got something. This is not the last we’ll be hearing from Diplo… (and by the way, this one isn’t JUST Diplo, it’s also featuring Lazerdisk Party Sex!)
The more I hear of Diplo, the more I’m fascinated by what he’s doing.
