Diplo Has Produced A Track On Turnstile’s New Album
Roadrunner’s latest brilliant hardcore signees, Turnstile, have announced through NPR that they’re gonna have a new record out on February 23. They dropped a track of the LP called Generator that you can hear right here:
Sometimes music journalism can be reduced to a competition to see who can come up with the most accurate descriptive equation for a song. Usually for a track like this we’d weigh in with our own jumbled sentence of adjectives and sub-genre references, but it’s hard to beat NPR’s assertion that this is “boom-bap-flange-turned-pop-punk bop complete with hand claps and over-the-top guitar shred.” Pretty much nailed it with that one imo.
But sweet jams and cool Twin-Peaks-meets-Jonestown-style videos aren’t all this album has to offer. Tucked away on the NPR piece is a casual mention of a certain super-fun mega-producer by the name of Diplo. You read that correctly: DIPLO. That’s right, the genius behind Major Lazer and producer of tracks for Gwen Stefani, M.I.A., Die Antwoord, Tinie Tempah and fucking Big Sean has turned his hand to producing Baltimore hardcore - he’s got a production credit on a track called Right To Be.
We’ve not heard the track, so we can’t really expand on that information for you, but we’ve a feeling all signs might be pointing to a record as game-changing for 2018 as Code Orange’s Forever was for 2017.
