10 years ago, Diplo created his springboard project ‘Florida’, which pretty much brought him to the stardom he exists in today…
I made Florida between a small apartment in Philadelphia and my mother’s house in Florida…I was working late nights and taking a bus through the city every night, smoking weed, putting on headphones and just making things I never heard before and could just imagine. Making this record created an entirely new world for me.
…which is why he’s decided to re-release the project (now stylised as F10RIDA) alongside the forthcoming EP Epistemology and some unreleased tracks from those sessions.
Below is one of those tracks, titled ‘As I Lay Dying’, which was partly used for the creation of the Martina Topley-Bird-assisted ‘Into The Sun’. The entire package is officially released 28th November for America’s Black Friday holiday.
