Diplo on Teaming Up with Robyn: "I Think We Broke Dubstep"
Published Dec 01, 2009Besides being one of today's most exciting and innovative producers, Diplo is an equally interesting communicator. Along with the epic hilarity that constantly drops via his Twitter, the producer born Thomas Wesley Pentz can describe music like none other. Now that he's teamed up with Swedish pop vixen Robyn for some tracks, both parties have dropped some amazing quotes.
Writing on her own Twitter account, Robyn first hinted at the collaboration, saying, "respect to @diplo who, even though he's a busy hot shot producer, travels out to Sweden and Las vegas to work with me. no holds barred."
Always one to up the ante, Diplo used his account to describe the music they were making. First he said, "Shout out 2 @robynkonichiwa for breakin the couch in vegas and making my favorite track of 2010! Dancehall queen! She whoa whoa." As if that weren't enough, he dropped this cryptic statement: "Its like lil orphan annie meets dawn penn inna london rave."
Finally, Diplo posted the below video with an maddeningly intriguing new track in the background. Along with the video, he wrote, "I think we broke dubstep."
While reading these jokey statements is all fine and good, it's going to be incredibly frustrating to wait indefinitely for these actual songs to surface.
