Wave Racer and Shift K3y take over Diplo & Friends with contrasting mix styles
Each week, fans turn to Mad Decent label head Diplo to bring them new and familiar music alike through the guest spots on the “Express Yourself” kingpin’s Diplo & Friends radio show. This week, the show featured two exciting upcoming sounds, one of which focuses on the brighter and euphoric side of the trap genre, while the next showcases computerized sound creation through focus on the lower end of the sonic spectrum. Wave Racer, one of Australia’s very own euphoric trap leaders, makes for an interesting sound when contrasted with Shift K3y‘s predominantly self-focused set. Sparkling synths rain down from above in the midst of Wave Racer’s set, while the Columbian veteran drowns the same synths in a sea of bass. Once again, Diplo has provided his weekly soundtrack, exposing much of the electronic market to a unique angle of the genre.
