Good Morning Mix: Random White Dude be on KIIS FM
America’s favorite not-so-random white dude Diplo guest starred on LA’s KIIS FM last week. The result? 60 minutes of hard-hitting tunes to jolt your morning from mediocre to manic. He touches on his usual trap sounds, with twerk-ready edits of classic hits like “Calabria,” while also weaving through some newer tunes, like his fresh summertime collab with Yellow Claw and LNY TNZ, “Techno.” Of course it wouldn’t be a true Diplo guest mix if “Bubble Butt,” and “Express Yourself” weren’t in the setlist somewhere, too. About halfway through, Blondre 3000 tries something a little different and throws in some current deep house chart-toppers. With Kiesza‘s “Hideaway,” Route 94‘s “My Love,” and What So Not‘s “High You Are,” you would think the mix slows down a bit. But knowing Diplo, he keeps things interesting with remixes of the soulful singles that maintain the rest of his mix’s high-octane pace. If you need a quick fix of dance music to pump the energy into your office, car, or whatever other mundane locale you find yourself in this AM, look no further than Diplo for a cure that’ll hit harder than that extra shot of espresso.
