Weekend Rewind: Diplo’s 2004 debut album, ‘Florida’

Nearly ten years ago, Diplo had yet to become the EDM poster boy produce music for the likes Beyonce and Lil’ Wayne or befriend hip-hop stars such as 2 Chainz. Nonetheless, he was still Diplo, and he made his full-length album debut in 2004 with the release of Florida. At the time, his beats were widely regarded as a trip-hop, and his style embodied the likes of Timbaland & Magoo. That sound is most evident on records such as “Indian Thick Jaws” while he flexed his range of capabilities on the string-savvy “Big Lost” and found an early slow-tempo groove on “Summer’s Gonna Hurt You.” Jump below the break to preview these highlight tracks from Florida and preview Diplo’s debut album in full via iTunes
