Diplo remixes Tiësto with brand new cut of ‘Secrets’
A light shot below the belt alleging ghost production is swept off by Diplo with the deliverance of his latest remix. Countering Tiësto‘s recent remix of Major Lazer’s inescapable hit “Lean On,” Diplo offers a polarizing take on “Secrets.” The original mix, a collaboration with Vassy and KSHMR, cropped from Tiesto’s Clublife: Volume 4 New York City, finds a brand new feel as Wes flips the track upside down with heavy dub, dancehall, trap, and tropical influences.
Since the pair shared production duties on 2010’s now iconic “C’mon,” they have both staked their claims in Vegas, rode the swelling waves of dance music’s astronomic global expansion into 2015, taken up industry-leading taste making duties, and manage two of the most powerful labels in the dance music space. Now as the heavyweights trade remixes, Diplo, in an increasingly rare fashion, offers his unmistakable solo style on “Secrets” that takes Tiësto and KSHMR’s pumping, melodic big room and strips it down to a twangy, bounce-ready piece of tropical-esque trap music.
