Cool-hunting DJ/producer Diplo is dangerously ubiquitous these days ands shows no signs of slowing down just yet. His recent Usher collaboration "Climax," which also featured orchestral arrangement by avant-classical wizard Nico Muhly, sets a new career milestone of potentially "Paper Planes"-rivaling magnitude. With a new book, 128 Beats Per Minute, due out in April, and a couple of other fine tracks (both solo and remixing Philly band PO PO) lately, Dip has now teamed up with Breaking Out rapper-singer Azealia Banks.

The result of the hotly touted duo's collaboration, "Fuck Up the Fun," keeps both Diplo and Banks moving forward at their current torrid pace. Diplo's snare-heavy production is basically all percussion, with a steady house pulse eventually joining the marching-band fanfare. Banks stretched out into a more pop-oriented direction on Aaliyah-sampling "NEEDSUMLUV," but here she's strictly a rapper, coming at the track with all guns blazing.
