Peace Is The Mission
Label: Mad Decent
Diplo opens his third installment of post-modern dancehall with a slow one, "Be Together," featuring moody duo Wild Belle, but don't be fooled: patois-enhanced club jams are still the reason we're here. Big hit "Lean On" is obviously accounted for, but try Elliphant declaiming over "Too Original," or the great Chronixx on "Blaze up the Fire." Too bad obvious choices Ellie Goulding and Ariana Grande crowd out female Jamaican vocalists (hi, Nyla!). Then again, Trinidadian legend Machel Montano does his best to outshine Ariana on bonus Hunger Games remix "All My Love." Bombastic? You bet.
