Diplo Gives Lorde's "Tennis Court" the '90s Remix Treatment

Synthed-out dance tracks and Andre Agassi's gorgeous plume of a mullet: these are two majestic, magnificent things that came out of the '80s and '90s, and two timeless inspirations behind the totally addicting remix of Lorde's "Tennis Court" that Diplo just cooked up.

The DJ left what we love about the track intact—Lorde's haunting vocals, that booming, octave-diving "YEEEAH!," the mellow vibe from start to finish—but injected it with some exuberant, updated touches via infectious beats and a dance floor-friendly pace. There's something very "Sexual Healing"/"Higher Love" about Diplo's "Andrew [sic] Agassi" spin on the Pure Heroine favorite, and this'll keep us pressing the play button until a new Lorde track eventually surfaces.

Listen to the Diplo's take on "Tennis Court" above. (And then go get that neon sweatband out of storage, even if it's older than Lorde herself.)
