In the euphoric aftermath of “Diamond Therapy” with Walker & Royce and Channel Tres last month, I am beyond thrilled to introduce “Favela Joint”, the latest masterpiece under the Higher Ground banner. This new single is a testament to Diplo’s renewed focus on his house music imprint, and oh, what a melodious journey it has been since its launch in 2019!

The tune of “Favela Joint” is enchanting, encapsulating the essence of house music with a blend of rhythmic beats and immersive harmonies. It’s a tune that invites you to lose yourself in the music, to dance without a care in the world. Every beat is a narrative, every rhythm tells a story, and together they symbolize the epitome of musical creativity that Higher Ground aims to champion.

Higher Ground isn’t just a label; it’s a global movement celebrating house music from every corner of the world. It’s been a thrilling hub for releases from some of the most avant-garde artists in the scene, and the Billboard Dance/Electronic chart hits it has spawned are a testament to its groundbreaking influence.

And let’s not forget the live experiences Higher Ground has curated! From New York Fashion Week to Coachella and the Amsterdam Dance Event, it has brought exhilarating parties to the masses. This year’s sold-out Brooklyn installment was a spectacle featuring the likes of Diplo, Danny Daze, Green Velvet, DJ Holographic, and many more! The anticipation is already building for Higher Ground’s L.A. takeover at LA Plaza De Cultura Y Artes on December 2, and I can hardly wait for the full lineup announcement.

Diplo’s musical expedition is nothing short of legendary. From his early days in Philly’s club scene with Hollertronix to collaborating with the crème de la crème of the music industry, his journey has been awe-inspiring. His projects, including the iconic Major Lazer, LSD—the psychedelic supergroup with Sia and Labrinth, and Silk City with Mark Ronson, have left indelible marks on the music scene. The release of Diplo Present Thomas Wesley: Chapter 2—Swamp Savant and 2022’s Diplo album are milestones marking his continuous evolution in the music arena.

“Favela Joint” is not just a single; it’s a voyage into the heart of what Higher Ground stands for. It’s a fresh, invigorating piece that showcases the endless possibilities of house music. Each beat resonates with the excitement and the unyielding passion of bringing forth a diverse and energetic musical realm.

So, immerse yourself in the euphoric beats of “Favela Joint” and let the music take you on an unparalleled journey. It’s not just a song; it’s an experience that epitomizes the essence of house music, and a brilliant reflection of the creative genius that is Diplo and the vibrant community of Higher Ground.
