Diplo's "Higher Ground EP" Arrives Including Tove Lo, Kah-lo and Blond:ish.

Diplo isnt slowing down anytime soon. Having shocked all sides of the industry with his surprise country-esque inspired "So Long" with Benny Cam followed by a performance at stagecoach festival just last week, Diplo now leaves the ranch to jump back into club serving up the remainder of his "Higher Ground EP".

Intiially announced with the release of the silky deep house crossover "Hold You Tight" and B-side “Bubblegum" back in March, the new additions include the Tove Lo featuring "Win Win" and "Give Dem" with Blondi:ish featuring Kah-lo making for a jacking EP made for late night rinsing in the dark sweaty club rooms across the globe.

Taking a lead from his Mark Ronson joint project ‘Silk City’, the ‘Higher Ground EP’ sees Diplo push himself into a club focused UK sound with a late night underground tonality. The pairing of Tove Lo, over a dark brooding house production is a suprising move but it without a doubt goes down a treat. Meanwhile "Give Dem" has an instant jacking energy, and Kah-lo's iconic vocals will no doubt have fans singing a long with her unique and catchy rhymes.

Australian producer Needs No Sleep’s latest release, an EP featuring two massive tech house tracks, is the latest to come out of well known house label “This Ain’t Bristol”.  Both tracks, “Lambo” and “Not My Question” stand out from the crowd, each with their own unique spin on the tech house sound.  The first track, “Lambo”, starts off as a bare-bones drum beat, but quickly evolves into a club-ready banger, with the addition of deep, gritty baselines and unique rhythmic elements.  The second track, “Not My Question”, relies heavily on atmospheric instruments and a distorted vocal sample to fuel the breaks.  In the drops, the track erupts into a beast; massive brass stabs and thumping drums take front and center. 

In just the few weeks since the EP’s release, it’s already seen massive success, charting at number four on the Beatport tech house chart.  Additionally, the EP’s been praised by top  industry tastemakers like Data Transmission and Insomniac.  Having already had his previous tracks supported by top DJs like Martin Garrix and Oliver Heldens, Needs No Sleep shows no signs of slowing down.  His latest release, an EP featuring “Lambo” and “Not My Question”, is sure to be a favorite among tech house fans.
