Diplo remixes Santogold

Diplo’s most recent venture — titled Top Ranking — takes Santogold’s glittery debut and smashes into a whole lotta dub. The superbly quirky musical conglomeration reworks Santogold’s weird pop sound with some fantastic dub tracks, with Diplo adding some 80s pop, 60s soul, punk and Top-40 gloss just for kicks. If dub is not your thing, I urge you get this mixtape simply for Santogold’s cheeky cover of The Clash’s Guns of Brooklyn and the twentieth track, Get It Up [listen below] — the most exciting song I’ve heard in a long time.
