These are not your grandma’s classic Christmas carols.
Once again it’s that time of the year when the holiday classics find themselves remixed ad infinitum with modern touches. None more so then the classics featured on Diplo’s A Very Decent Christmas compilation.
The 8-track holiday mixtape features Diplo and his friends over at Mad Decent putting their Moombahton and dancehall spins on your favorite childhood classics.
Instead of the iconic “thumpity thump thump” heard on children’s classic “Frosty the Snowman,” Diplo’s “Frosty Bounce (feat. Angger Dimas & Nicky Da B)” features “baby bounce” call outs and the command “work your back” alongside a tinny steel drum effect that mimics the melody of the original.
A Very Decent is out now via Mad Decent’s imprint Jefree’s, but for those feeling a little stingy, you can stream the album in its entirety below.
