O contraire, this isn’t just any stupid Diplo song, this is a re-working of A Tribe Called  Quest’s “Electric Relaxation.” No Baile funk. No M.I.A. telling you she’s going to get your money and then re-distribute it to Third World Orphans Who Want to Learn to Dress Good and Do Other Stuff Good Too. Just a lift of Phife Dawg’s, “I like ’em brown, yellow, Puerto Rican and Haitian” line, the sped-up and slick glide of Ronnie Forster’s “Mystic Brew,” and some fierce, clapping drums. It’s called “Brew Barrymore.” I know. That doesn’t change the fact that it deserves to be on every amateur DJ’s Fourth of July play-list.
