Song of the Day: Dizzie Rascal feat. Calvin Harris

It's common for two great artists who make different musical styles but choose to collaborate to meet somewhere in the middle. Many great songs have come from the ability to compromise. On this track, though, both men maintain the styles that have made them unique: Harris his neo-disco melodies, Rascal his dirty, phrenetic slang. Their steadfastness gives this track the intensity and immediacy of a mashup, as if you could pull apart the layers and create two wholly interesting pieces. And keeping them together makes for one of the most danceable songs of the year.
