Diplo initiates house work on Mat.Joe-powered single, ‘Conga Rock’
While simultaneously appearing in a myriad of lineups for the latest wave of 2021 festival announcements, Diplo has followed his standard workhorse antics with a string of releases. This includes his recent collaboration with Black Coffee and Elderbrook on “Subconsciously,” his contribution on Major Lazer‘s “Diplomatico,” and the first Silk City release since 2019, which he showcased recently in a Tesla-powered recreation.
Now, he’s giving the world “Conga Rock,” teaming up with Berlin-based house and hip-hop duo Mat.Joe for a euphoric dance track to, hopefully, carry us right into festival season. The composition is a house track in its own right, but layers over some tribal-sounding chant samples and steady “conga” percussion, adding in melodic, bright piano chords.
