Just last week, Diplo dropped his latest single "Boom Bye Bye", a collaboration with French rapper Niska, ahead of the imminent release of a new EP called Europa. Said EP, we're told, will see Diplo team up with a range of different European artists to create tracks that he says are more akin to his earlier, pre-Major Lazer releases. The Niska-assisted first taste has now been given some visuals in which we follow the pair around city scenes in a fancy whip while Niska unfurls his low-slung bars that introduce those less familiar to his chart-conquering brand of "Afro-trap".

"Niska came over late one night in Paris and we played this idea down on a piano loop that I made," Diplo explains. "I had only been familiar with him because he had every song on the French charts that moment. I was really excited that he came thru and made this crazy idea with me. One year later we finished it." 

Keep an eye on the news surrounding the upcoming Europa EP, which is said to be a sister to last year's U.S-centric California EP, as there will be some UK artists featured there. Take a look at the Dan Le Moyne visuals at the top.
