Diplo, the producer behind M.I.A., along with Fabric Records present FabricLive 24.
Raised across the southern states, fed on Miami Bass and DIY DJ party culture, Diplo began DJ-ing in his late teens and started to produce his own tracks after moving north to Philly and New York. While living in Japan he submitted his demo to Ninja Tunes Hip Hop offshoot Big Dada; swiftly signed he put out the deep, diverse and funky Florida album. Hes remixed for artists including Beck, Gwen Stefani, Bun B, and Le Tigre. Diplo pushes the envelope of new sounds and rhythm that constantly absorbs and amazes listeners of his mix tapes and Hollartonix parties.
FabricLive 24 is a fast paced, funk fuelled ride through the badlands of Hip Hop, dub step, electro, rock and techno featuring tracks from Outkast, Plantlife, Aphex Twin, Ludacris, M.I.A., The Cure, Diplo, Le Tigre, Cybotron, Cajmere, and many more.
From the Artist
I wanted to do the mix as a history of the electro/Miami Bass sound, but throwing in all sorts of things with a funk feel... I went a little out there and put on tracks people might not be familiar with just cuz its a FabricLive mix tape.
Top customer reviews
With a mixture of old (Debbie Deb, Model 500, Freestyle), new (M.I.A, Outkast, Ludacris), exotic (baile funk) and downright strange (Aphex Twin, DJ Nasty), Diplo delivers a set of quality mixing and innovative track selection.
To those of little musical bravery - stay clear of the great Diplo in general and definately this mix,as you will find everything from 80's breakbeat to 00's hip hop rubbing shoulders with the rockier sounds of The Cure and Le Tigre. If however, you are open to musical experimentation, then this mix will surely install in your brain the feelings of euphoria it did in this humble reviewier's cranium.
Turn it on and take a journey into the wonderful world of Diplo.
I had a hard time listening to this ablum in its entirity. Various types of a particular food kept popping into my head. Provolone, Mozarella, Feta...you get the point.
2/5 stars for this album.
