Diplo Previews New Collaboration With Skrillex And Kiesza, “Take You There”: Listen
What happens when two of dance music’s most dynamic producers team up together on one mixtape? We’re about to find out: Twerk-master Diplo and dubstep king Skrillex are set to release their collaborative mixtape Jack Ü, as confirmed during Diplo’s Ask Me Anything session on Reddit this week.
And the first song to drop from the upcoming collabo? “Take You There,” featuring vocals from none other than our favorite “Hideaway” dance-pop sweetheart, Kiesza! (From dancing in the streets of Brooklyn to teaming up to the studio with the heavyweights in the time span of less than a year — now that’s impressive.)
Lucky for us, Diplo’s in a teasing mood lately thanks to Madonna, and he’s just given us a tantalizing first taste of the track. While DJing at Concorde Atlantique in Paris last week, Diplo dropped his Kiesza and Skrillex-assisted “Take You There.” And so far, it’s everything one might expect a collabo between the trio to sound — powerhouse vocals and mind-melting beat drops, mainly. According to Spin, the Major Lazer superstar is trying to get a stream of the song out “this week.” We’re ready!
Listen to Diplo spin the new track after the jump, and let us know what you think about the upcoming collabo.
