Diplo and AutoErotique have teamed up to issue a new collaboration today with the release of their scorching bass house tune “Waist Time.” Diplo had previously linked up with AutoErotique on Major Lazer‘s “The Sound” in 2015, and the two follow up that outing with a fresh single in a similar vein.
“Waist Time” sets a rowdy pace straight from the get go, kicking off with a pounding house beat, pitching rising sirens and deep bass stabs. Moving into the buildup, the two producers introduce a repeating vocoder phrase, pushing the energy to the top as the track transitions into the drop. From there things really take off, as a cacophony of gritty bass wubs intersect the four on the floor drum patterns.
Coinciding with the release of the single, Diplo and AutoErotique have released a music video to go along with it. The concept is simple, featuring a number of female dancers working out their hula hoop skills, though we should mention that it leans on the NSFW side at times.
All in all, “Waist Time” is a solid bass house tune with plenty of energy for the dancefloor crowds, though fans familiar with AutoErotique’s material may question Diplo‘s involvement in the production. Either way it’s worth a listen, so be sure to check it out above.
