"Express Yourself" is DIPLO’s first time out in the well established universe of New Orleans Bounce Music. This explosive collaboration with new generation Bounce rapper NICKY DA B, protege of Big Freedia and Katey Red, reaches across the gap between the hip hop origins of Bounce and the club hits he's consistently delivered in the past. Nicky Da B's musically percussive style, featuring lyricism reminiscent of the Caribbean origins of New Orleans music, finesses the beat, creating maddening textures that bring Diplo's production to a boil. “Express Yourself” takes club music back below the waist, where it works best, and brings a bit of the Dirty Dirty to the polished world of electronic dance music. B-side features the unreleased Diplo track "Move Around" featuring the ELEPHANT MAN and production duo GTA exclusive to this 7-inch. Limited edition of 1,000 copies packaged in matte printed fold-out jackets on textured paper with original artwork by MICHAEL GAUGHAN.
