Ahh Sia. The funky little Australian seems to be everywhere lately, and that’s becuse she just dropped a new album called We Are Born, the follow-up to her 2007 smash, Some People Have Real Problems.

My jury is still deliberating on Sia. I loved her as the unofficial frontwoman for UK trip-hop act Zero 7, but I find her solo work hit or miss. Either way, I’m excited to see that her single, “Clap Your Hands,” got the Diplo treatment. Part pseudo-dubstep, part floor-filler, the original track is barley recognizable–a true remix if you ask me. While this might not rank up there with Diplo’s best, it’s still the best way to start a Thursday morning.
