Listen: MØ – “XXX 88” feat. Diplo

30 Aug

Mo

Last night, Danish superstar in waiting dropped a new track, featuring and co-produced (alongside Ronni Vindahl) by Diplo, and boy is it a cracker. Full of sass and attitude, it is a tune perfectly suited to her live performance and one that sounds fantastic blaring out of your speakers at home, in the car or wherever.

Regular readers will know that we were blown away by her performance at The Great Escape earlier this year. The way she prowls around the stage, her plait whirling as she flings her head around, fists pumping the air and her legs, hips, feet and everything else jerk and thrust as she power dances took us completely by surprise and we absolutely loved it.

With “XXX 888”, she has a tune that conveys that sense of showmanship, confidence and even aggression off stage as well as on it. This is a big track. Its urban and slick, like a new corporate giant tower punching through the skyline, it has a testosterone fuelled beat and grind and grit in the instruments that doesn’t apologise. The song gives you a choice, listen, dance and love it, or get on your bike and ride on outta here. Ain’t no-one going for a cycle.

MØ plays London XOYO on 5th November with more dates promised and if you get the chance, go. She really is amazing live.

”XXX 88” ft. Diplo is released 20 October 2013 via Chess Club / RCA Victor and will also feature as one of four tracks on a forthcoming MØ EP.
