From the man who made #ExpressYourself the new planking comes the infinity stripper pole in space! Diplo's “Set It Off,” music video directed by Ryan Staake featuring Lazerdisk Party Sex, is a mesmerizing piece that leads to the hypnotic presence of twirling and spinning strippers set in space.

Arthur Baker has put together a pretty fascinating documentary on "how the Roland TR-808 changed the musical world starting from its most seminal record Planet Rock." Catch interviews from Questlove, Diplo, Skrillex, and many many other influencers. Interesting little mash up style to the trailer above, too. Look for Planet Rock and Other Tales of the 808 to drop in 2013!
Diplo has teamed up with Dutch producer Oliver Twizt to release their Go EP. The EP is based around the title track, "Go," which features a focal loop that sounds like a drowned out 8-bit video game sample. One might parallel the sound to a tribal Atari-playing rave on an unnamed planet. Or something.
Take a listen to the original track below and grab the rest of the EP, which includes several remixes of the tune from folks like Kid Kaio, Swarms, and PeaceTreaty.
