Diplo has never been bashful when it comes to collaborating with other artists. The highly-popularized DJ/producer recently teamed up with Mark Ronson to form the collective known as Silk City. The duo released a total of four singles together last year alone. Throughout the course of his career, he's also worked with world-renowned DJs and artists like Steve Aoki, Skrillex to form the duo Jack Ü, and Calvin Harris. Now, the "Keep It Gully" curator is back with the release of his latest track and visuals for the single "Boom Bye Bye" featuring French hip-hop artist, Niska, in preparation the release of his upcoming EP entitled, Europa. the sister project to his 2018 EP, California.
The video directed by Dan Le Moyne features both Diplo and Niska in a ravaged hatchback car as scenes of various surviving citizens prepare for combat in an open field. What appears to be an anarchist state with suffering patrons turns into the imagery of upliftment and togetherness as children can be seen playing in beach waters and people can be seen embracing one another. Sonically, Niska was able to balance rapping in the pocket with the beat in conjunction with harmonious breakdowns throughout the composition.
Diplo's production ability definitely shined on "Boom Bye Bye" as the chopped up piano sample played the background to his heavy-hitting drum pattern. Diplo's punchy synth horn sections and beat breakdowns were a pleasant surprise as well throughout the track. As of right now, there is no concrete release date for Diplo's upcoming Europa EP but, it should be available via all music platforms in the near future.
With that said, check out the visuals for Diplo's newest single, "Boom Bye Bye" featuring Niska in the video link provided above and stick with AXS for all of your ticketing needs.
