Back in December Diplo dropped a hint about a genre-shaking mashup that was underway, a song that featured PSY‘s “Gangnam Style” and  the vocals of ATL club-king 2 Chainz.

Diplo’s latest remix gives new life to PSY’s pop sound. But now that the song has hit the net, what does the producer really think of the monster he created?

The song, which is part of PSY’s latest EP Gangnam Style (Remix Style) includes the vocals of 2 Chainz and Tyga, who trade verses over the Diplo-helmed track.

In December, Diplo spilled the beans on Twitter about the collabo:

“no lie i just finished something with @psy_oppa and @2chainz the mayan calendar predicted this.”

While the song dropped on Tuesday (March 5), on Monday Diplo offered a comment on remixes.

“When I’m by myself in a hotel room I just count all the s***** remixes I’m finishing and deadlines I’m missing to fall asleep,” he tweeted.

The next day he tweeted a link to his “Gangnam Style” remix.

Tyga and 2 Chainz flow over Diplo’s 808 kicks and snares that remain popular in today’s hip-hop. Diplo also incorporates his electronic flair which does more to remake the song than simply remix it. However, the  catchy refrain remains:  “Hey sexy lady/ Oppa Gangnam Style”

Also on the four-song EP is a remix from DJ Afrojack and an instrumental of Diplo’s version.
