Diplo’s new EP California manages to successfully cross rap and electronic music; something that many attempt to do, but fail at.
Diplo defies the odds with one of the more listened to tracks from the EP: “Color Blind,” featuring Lil Xan. The two debuted the track live last week at The Wynn’s Encore Beach Club in Vegas and gained massive traction since.
The music video tied to “Color Blind” was directed by a longtime friend of Diplo, Austin Peters. Peters helped to direct the successful Major Lazer documentary.
California is the first solo body of work from Diplo in five years. The EP is out now on Mad Decent and has been streamed more than 30 million times.
California features collaborations with Trippie Redd, DRAM, Lil Yachty, Desiigner, Santigold, Goldlink and MØ in addition to Xan.
