A photo of Diplo and Octavian has been circulating on Instagram for some time now, but today we finally get to hear some music from the pair.

‘New Shapes’ comes off a new Diplo project called Europa, which is set to drop 22nd February, and was co-produced by Jim-E Stack.

“I met Octavian at a party in London. We took a photo and I never thought I would see the kid again,” Diplo recalls of their initial meeting. “Over the next six months I kept hearing his name and seeing him on great songs. I tried to stay in touch even though he had another twelve phone numbers since we met. Finally, he was stuck in L.A. for a while and it was easy to pull up on him. After a few weeks we nailed this song and I’m glad it gets to finally see the light of day.”
