In an attempt to not only raise awareness on mental health issues, but to also provide fans with an outlet to practice self-care and wellbeing, Diplo has brought forth a change of pace release in his brand new album ‘MMXX’ that delves deep into ambient electronica with the sole objective of calmness and relaxation after every listen.
Featuring collaborations with Rhye, Mikky Ekko, Good Times Ahead and Lunice, ‘MMXX’ comes through with 12 lush and atmospheric soundscapes full of soothing pads and energising synths that will rejuvenate your spirit and bring some form of peace to you after each listen.
“I’ve been experimenting with making ambient music for years now…In some ways, it’s a return to my roots—my first album Florida was all super chill instrumentals. For the last few years I’ve been collaborating with a bunch of friends playing ambient sets around L.A., and when the pandemic hit we decided to lay some of it down. It’s been a huge stress reliever and meditative experience for me, hope it can be the same for you. Checking in with ourselves and taking care of our mental health is so important, now more than ever.” – Diplo
