I want to address one thing first, this EP is just great, some of the artist featured I have fallen in love with over the last few months. I eventually got to “Color Blind” with a faint bit of worry, so far I’ve liked one “Lil Xan” record and have yet to listen to his debut album but bloody hell did this surprise me.
Diplo has always been a producer that I was never going to follow, i’ve never been an EDM fan so it’s easy to miss releases like this but when I saw the line up for his “california” EP i couldn’t really miss out and I was completely right to give it a try.
For me this single does more for Xan than Diplo, it brings him out massively, his previous big hitters were on the slow side, slight no hoper vibes in his lyricism is fine but when it’s paired with beats that also fight with melancholic vibes it often gets shrouded and labelled as depressing. This isn’t so different for Diego Leanos but with Diplo’s roaring track behind him it really does propel his talents.
It’s an interesting track that I believe both EDM fans and Trap fans are going to love, personally over that last couple of days I’ve had it on repeat with not much else being able to push it out the way.
