Holla Atcha Boy! [Hollertronix]

Already his reputation infamous on Hey Student!, Diplo perhaps did his best work as part of the DJ duo Hollertronix, based straight out of Philly.

Much in the vein of the previously discussed I Like Turtles mix, Never Scared, Hollertronix's seminal piece, is a sample-heavy clash of musical styles, ranging everywhere from Dirty South rap, punjabi, 80's electro and, of course, Bjork. When the Clash literally "clash" with Missy on the track provided below, the musical moment is so golden it may bring you to tears.

Summer can still live on, despite it being September. This shit is mad decent!
