    Mega producer Diplo's latest track is titled "Look Back" and features Virginia rapper D.R.A.M. It strays far from the Jack Ü or Major Lazer material everyone on the planet knows and loves and instead focuses on a more introspective and reflective perspective. The song offers a disorienting sense of nostalgia and melancholy, with heavy-hitting drums, subtle yet glistening guitars, and D.R.A.M's empowering and authentic delivery. Towards the end, haunting, tiny-sounding background vocals add another layer of harmony, perfectly sealing everything together. It also comes with a Brandon Dermer-directed video, which you can watch above. With "Look Back," Diplo demonstrates his impressive diversity as a producer.

    The track is the first song from the producer's forthcoming California EP, out this spring. It's the first body of solo work Diplo will release since 2013's Revolution EP.
