Weekend Rewind: Santogold – Starstruck (Diplo Remix)
As one of the many producers of Santi White’s debut album Santogold, Diplo also had the distinct pleasure at trying his hand at a remixes for the memorable album in the form of the Top Ranking: A Diplo Dub mixtape. You now know Santogold as Santigold and you now know Diplo as part of Major Lazer, Mad Decent head man, and a Grammy-nominated producer. Times were simpler for these two three years ago, but that didn’t stop Diplo from unleashing a completely haunting dub of “Starstruck” among many other gems on the mixtape. The rework doesn’t stray too far from the original, but somehow it manages to feel so much more powerful. A sign of things to come.
