Diplo - Decent Work For Decent Pay (Ninja Tune)

Web: http://www.ninjatune.net
Diplo is an aficionado of huge basslines and nasty beats. Here, his label, Ninja Tune, have decided to compile a number of his most high profile remixes together, throwing in a few of his own productions for good measure. It is a musically mixed affair and a number of efforts don’t really sparkle, instead just offering workmanlike Diplo clubfloor versions of the original. That said, there are a number of cuts to write home about, such as the glorious Sandra Melody vocalised Newsflash, Diplo’s twisting revision of Samin’s Heater and a cool touch up of Peter, Bjorn & John’s Young Folks. A musical mixed bag of hits and misses.
