PARADISE FALLS BY DIPLO AND DJ BENZI


by Thirst | October 29, 2010

Ladies and gentleman, the dubstep revolution is in full swing. Case in point: Paradise Falls, the new compilation remix album featuring the trip-hop trio Mansions on the Moon, and presented by Major Lazer tastemaker Diplo and hip-hop connoisseur DJ Benzi.

The album features the talents of Xaphoon Jones (of Chiddy Bang), Big Gigantic, and various other producers getting a little tired of the confines of hip-hop instumentals. This tape will have you on a higher level for the entire listening; from Xaphoon’s sonorously beautiful “Glimpse of the Future” remix to the throbbing Deadmau5 remix “Satellite,” every track gave me sounds I had never heard coupled with pleasing melodies and dope back-beats.

This is the next generation of “hot beats,” folks. The fact that it features the haunting voices of the Mansions boys makes it only better. Listen to “Satellite” below, and behold a glimpse of the future.
