Genre chameleon superproducer Diplo, who must be one of the hardest working men in music, has teamed up with West Coast icon Snoop Dogg for a straight up, out and out Reggae album! Diplo had already mentioned that he was working on18 tracks for a record with the Doggfather, but when MTV spoke to him after a gig on Tuesday, he specified that
“What we’re doing is a reggae record. It’s like Snoop Dogg and Major Lazer together. It’s all reggae and he’s singing and he’s doing a f—ing awesome job and I never knew it, but he had his heart in every song”
For many, it will come as a suprise that the gangsta rapper is switching things up like this, but Snoop’s clearly not afraid to experiment, and in other Dogg related news, he has recently been posting DJ mixes on his Soundcloud, spinning everything from European techno to Gospel. Check the “EURO TEKNO” mix below.
Go on, you know you want to!
