Earlier this year, the world of dance music was blessed with an audio relic, brought forth by the holy trinity of EDM: Diplo, Steve Aoki, and Dutch house sensation Deorro. Entitled "Freak (feat. Steve Bays)," the big room, floor rattling club anthem emerged to shake dance floors all across the world. Now, unleash your sexual inhibitions and get freaky with the official music video for "Freak," directed by Ryan Staake.

With Mad Decent dude Diplo set to issue his guests-loaded Random White Dude Be Everywhere compilation in a few weeks, the beatmaker has now given his recent "Freak" team up with Steve Aoki and Deorro a suitably suggestive new video.
Scored by the steady stroke of synths and four-on-the-floor rhythms, the video finds a series of peeps either licking their lips, spanking unseen things or being slathered by ooey-gooey substances. Despite Steve Bays' freak nasty vocal hook, you may be surprised about the goings-on by the time the video wraps. Then again, maybe it'll just add a couple fetishes to your repertoire.
Random White Dude Be Everywhere drops July 29 via Mad Decent.
