Diplo & Autoerotique - Waist Time
Grammy-winning producer Diplo and bass house champions Autoerotique have teamed up to unleash their new high voltage track “Waist Time” [Mad Decent, 2017]. Amplified bass lines build into the song’s explosive drops and carry as the through line, sustaining a bold melody. The song’s release matches up with an all new music video, directed by Remi Paringaux, following a hula hooping girl gang throwing down their moves in a warehouse near South London.
“Waist Time” drops on the heels of a major year for both artists; the track follows an Album of the Year Grammy nod for for Beyoncé’s Lemonade, on which Diplo produced two songs, while Autoerotique closed out the 2016 summer by teaming up with Steve Aoki for “ILYSM,” a collaboration featured on Aoki’s momentous 4OKI EP, hitting close to 15M streams on Spotify.
