It’s shaping up to be a great day for remixes: right after Hudson Mohawke graced us with a remix of Four Tet’s “Parallel Jalebi,” Diplo appears in the company of Ed Droste and Rostam Batmangilj (of Grizzly Bear and Vampire Weekend, respectively) to remix Ty Dolla $ign’s “Stand For.” DJ Dahi co-produced.
Some people have expressed confusion over the seemingly disparate sounds involved in this collaboration, but it all stews together quite nicely. In Diplo’s words, “it’s about time that indie rock acts started to co-opt rap beats.”
Also, looks like these three may have recently bro’d out at Coachella (follow the pinnie). Mystery solved.
