After meeting at a party in London, Diplo has teamed up with Octavian for the second single from his new Europa EP. “New Shapes” continues Diplo’s globetrotting journey, and is sure to get a drop at Diplo’s back-to-back UK and France shows.
Speaking about the collaboration Diplo said:
“I met Octavian at a party in London. We took a photo and I never thought I would see the kid again. Over the next six months, I kept hearing his name and seeing him on great songs. I tried to stay in touch even though he had another twelve phone numbers since we met. Finally, he was stuck in L.A. for a while and it was easy to pull up on him. After a few weeks, we nailed this song and I’m glad it gets to finally see the light of day. Big up to Jim-E Stack for producing this with me.”
