Editors’ Notes “Right now is a great time for house music,” Diplo told Beats 1 host Zane Lowe. "It’s going off in America. It’s back to a classic sound, a classic attitude.” After testing the waters with Silk City, his collaborative project with Mark Ronson that focuses on FM-friendly vocal house, the unstoppable DJ/producer doubles down with Higher Ground, a tight EP of pumping house cuts that put four-to-the-floor beats front and center. “I’m trying to find stuff that sounds new but has a vintage feeling,” he says. Along with flickers of French touch and Chicago house, there’s an irresistible vocal hook (“Give Dem” featuring Kah-Lo) that’ll bang around in your brain for hours after you’ve finished listening.
