If there's one thing Diplo is good at, it's turning up the heat on already great records. His latest master reworking is of Grizzly Bear's single "Will Calls" and it is a banger. Transforming the slow-burning original into a full fledged jumpy synth dance tune, the remix is a fresh and awesome take of the original. Check out the remix below and tell us what you think!
Our generation thrives on sharing photos dug up from the past on Instagram with the hashtag: #ThrowbackThursdays. Well, music is also a nostalgic form of the arts, and we find ourselves being reminiscent of memorable hour-long (sometimes longer) sets from past festivals. Today's throwback set is from Diplo at Electric Zoo 2012, where his booty-poppin tracks can be the anthem to any pre-weekend celebration.
Ladies, channeling your inner vixen is inevitable when listening to this set, listener's discretion is advised!

For the first time ever, Mad Decent Block Party invaded Merriweather Post Pavilion in the suburbs of Columbia, Maryland on August 2nd. Hundreds of cars were parked in a grass field surrounding the venue, which was the ideal location for attendees to blast music and tailgate. We saw all sorts of attire while we sat in our car sipping from red solo cups: fluffies, knee socks, and bra tops that were way too small. There was a pretty even assortment of ravers, hipsters, and what you could call the wannabe “flower children” of our generation. What’s unique about Merriweather is that it contains a gigantic lawn that accommodates the people who chose to bring blankets and lie out on the field. Not only that, but as at any other show in the DMV area, we saw ample Maryland pride that was manifested in multiple people waving the Maryland state flag.
