Diplo reimagines Glass Animals’ ‘Heat Waves’ with pumping new remix
The man with a million ventures, Diplo has not allowed the global COVID-19 pandemic to slow down his ability to surprise fans with all that he touches. Following the release of his debut album under his country moniker Thomas Wesley, and his crossover collaboration with Joji, “Daylight,” the Mad Decent head honcho has been tapped by Glass Animals to reimagine their single, “Heat Waves,” from their recently-released third album, Dreamland.
Abandoning his most recent sounds and styles, Diplo tries his hand at a tech-infused future bass flip, distorting Dave Bayley’s vocals and constructing a bouncy, metallic assortment of synths to give the original a heavier feel. For Diplo, this remix is quite a departure from what fans have come to expect given his recent activity, however, long-time fans will find this sound a close cousin to that of his California project.
