Diplo is lassoing his fans to Twitch to preview tracks from “Diplo Presents Thomas Wesley Chapter 1: Snake Oil” ahead of it’s release on Friday.

Few artists in the electronic dance music world have been as busy as Diplo during their time in lockdown. He has hosted a bevy of livestream events to connect with his fans throughout the entirety of the pandemic, like a virtual prom and a Cinco de Mayo-themed stream, and as his forthcoming album looms, he is looking to keep his foot on the gas pedal.

Diplo’s highly anticipated Diplo Presents Thomas Wesley Chapter 1: Snake Oil album is primed for its long-awaited debut this Friday, May 29th, 2020. Ahead of its release, he is lassoing his fans to Twitch for the latest edition of his livestream series “The Thomas Wesley Show,” where he will whip out his cowboy hat and preview tracks from the project, according to a press statement.

You can tune into “The Thomas Wesley Show” via Mad Decent‘s Twitch channel tomorrow, May 28th, 2020, from 8PM to 10PM PST (11PM to 2AM ET).

Diplo Presents Thomas Wesley Chapter 1: Snake Oil will arrive in full on May 29th, 2020 via RCA Records UK. Fans can look forward to contributions from Thomas Rhett, Zac Brown, Julia MichaelsYoung Thug, Noah Cyrus, and Orville Peck, among others. The EDM world as well as the music community at large have expressed their tub-thumping concerns about Diplo’s foray into country music, but he has brushed them off with a phlegmatic middle finger, and rightfully so. You can pre-save the album here

Take a Big Ole Bite of Diplo and Wuki's New Single "Chicken Wang"

The single, featuring Snappy Jit, was released today via HARD Recs.

If you’re looking for a Thursday pick-me-up with some serious attitude, Wuki and Diplo have you covered with their latest single “Chicken Wang,” featuring Snappy Jit

Out today via HARD Recs, the track is just as ridiculous as it sounds and stays true to Wuki and Diplo’s fun, energy-based rhythms. Think of it as the EDM ode to food, with messaging and a creative commitment to originality comparable to Kanye West‘s “Closed on Sunday.”

The song is the first release off Wuki’s upcoming album, which the recent HARD Recs signee will release through his new label. It dives deep into his booty-bass and electro roots with pounding drum samples, upbeat vocal cuts and a drop full of rave whistles and reverb. In typical Wuki and Diplo fashion, the two artists stayed true to their vision on this one and dove deep into their love for, well, chicken wangs. They managed to pair Diplo’s classic trap sounds with twerk-ready bass, resulting in a new kind of club shaker. 

“Chicken Wang is very dear to my heart. I love chicken and I love wangs,” Wuki tells EDM.com in an exclusive quote. “I’m so stoked to kick off my album with this track. It’s silly, but in a way it really encapsulates my sound for this album.”

To kick off this release with a bang and a wang, Wuki is personally delivering free chicken wings to a few lucky fans through an online competition
